The churches don't fit me well because they pinch quite a lot around my little toe on my right foot. I think they were a G108 - the 108's do have a 'tighter' fit compared to the more traditional lasts, I have the Lowick model in my work rotation. In my opinion, C&J are better at doing narrow lasts but my feet and I prefer Church's. If you wanted to try Church's again consider; 173 (round-toe) and 119; 130 is an elongated shape (no experience myself) but avoid the Italian...

Once you have tried on or owned G&G shoes, you save a trip. That may be the only advatage; however, you have to take into account the time taken to make a trip and sometimes finding time is difficult. With BE, make an order and they will get in contact to discuss...

Either way, prices seem relatively comparable, although I guess prices have gone up a bit since the fellow from the other thread got his in december 2008. I was quoted £690 for MTO in Feb (this year) and their cap-toe is the Chelsea model. The RTW model was £585 at the time. Quote: Originally...

RTW suits are dry cleaned 3-4 times a year Non-RTW suits are dry cleaned once a year, if at all
Quote: Originally Posted by mimolette What I'm wondering is, should I exchange the tie for something solid, or perhaps the shirt? I'm worried I might have too many patterns going on here. Toss a coin: heads - plain shirt, tails - solid tie. Personally I would go for a non-blue gingham and the change tie for a solid option. The patterns you have at the moment (striped suit, gingham shirt, repp tie) can work if you use different colours....
Quote: Originally Posted by JLibourel Why? They're both bluchers, and what little the Leeds gains on the formality continuum by being a plain toe, it loses by being double-soled and hence heavier and clunkier. Some people prefer double soled shoes but if we leave that discussion aside for the moment. If I was given a choice between a split-toe shoe or a non-split-toe double soled shoe, to wear with a suit, I would choice the latter. Double...
