The best solution I found was wearing them for 3/4 hours indoors, and using shoe trees for two days.

I have 4 Cheaney's (1 own brand, 3 outsourced work) vs 2 C&J's and although my fave out of the bunch is outsourced Cheaney's, I would say C&J. - slightly higher quality leather, better construction,
Your current charcoal suit could be used for interviews/meetings; for work, you could wear both in most environments. If you need a suit to be worn specifically for interviews and meetings, and also for work, then the second suit.
