yeah sounds about right
these are both great and valid points, both of which i understand, but i might be missing out on an even better pair of better fitting shoes else where - you never know unless you try, then from that point you can build the relationship once you have decided, which are the more suitable for you
G&G by default on mine are an 1" high which IIRC is there RTW default too, any higher and you are getting into cowboy boot area IMO, maybe Bengal can comment on the london standard heel hight?
fit is down to prefence, expection and culture from my expirance, i know a friend who much prefers the fit of his clev's over G&G as he like then super tight, and he says that clev's leather is noticalbe thinner and softer than G&G so for him thats what he like, were as i hate overly tight shoes and prefer the looser fit over the ball area but a nice tight heel, which for me G&G do perfectly.i agree that the shoe should fit your feet, but it should also have a nice...

this look miles more bespoke than those cleverleys just posted
that leather is sooooo nice!
what a great rational for accept sub-standard good's, rather you than me!
no only are those spot are an issue, look how they have creased - aweful, some of the worse leather i have ever seen!
