It's good to know that I am not alone, but I am surely wondering why this particular crease pattern occurs in the case of shell chukkas.
So the high number of creases and their positions all along the vamp (in contrast to a few folds in proximity to the region of flex) is typical of chukkas, or of cordovan shoes?
A number of years ago I picked up some shell cordovan chukka boots at Ralph Lauren. Recently, the creasing pattern has become particularly substantial, as seen, with a high number of separate creases running throughout almost the entire length of the vamp. Most shoes, upon breaking in, will develop two or three folds near to the flex of the foot, but no more. For this kind of footwear, is the creasing shown at all typical?.

Not a huge number of data points. Alden 8-1/2C. A-E Park Avenue 8D. Paul Stuart (Stuart's Choice) 8-1/2D. Crockett & Jones are normally too wide for me whatever the size.
I normally do fine with 8-1/2D, but these are too large to consider even with tongue pads. Perhaps then it is comparable to the Barrie. I don't have a pair of Barrie for comparison.
What particular information do you need?

Shoes ship within 5 business days of payment being received. Noting uncertainty about sizing, I am accepting returns for refund of price minus shipping cost if shoes are...
General guidance for identifying button material has previously been given on styleforum, and it has been given well. The thread linked below serves as an example. http://www.styleforum.net/t/3500/horn-buttons-vs-plastic-buttons/0_50 In my case, however, I need particular help in identifying a material. My situation is that I have been buying mid-level MTM tailored clothing from the same source for several years now. (I don't know the name of the manufacturer because...
