No offence taken, however I refuse to take any of the blame. I couldn't do more than explain to the store professionals that for twenty years I'd worn nothing but flip flops and sandals and had come to them for professional help.

"No problem Sir, Take a seat Sir, We'll professionally measure your feet Sir, both feet Sir because your left foot may be different to...
I have been a member of this forum for some time now but never really participate in the comments as I feel I'm not knowledgeable enough to do so.

Putting all this aside, you are garanteed to finally leave with a garment that...
Have just logged onto the sight, hence the late reply. Try Steve Horsman in Armley, Leeds for fully bespoke. Good value for money. Don't expect a quick job though. You can easily wait 4 - 6 months, unless you put pressure on him.
