I've had this done about a dozen times (length). It worked I think 9 out of 12 times, giving me an extra half size in length. Once the leather cracked, another time it showed stretch marks. These were mostly cheap thrift store pickups, so the risk was low. I'd think twice about stretching something I had just purchased new.

 

Stretching the width, though, seems pretty straightforward and less risky.

You can change the width, but not the length. Or at least not without a lot of risk. The reason is because the length is bound by sole. The width, on the other hand, is actually the total circumference of the foot, not just the left-to-right distance measured at the ball of the shoe. So when you're stretching the width of a shoe, you're just increasing the total circumference (or volume).

Most manufacturers use the same sole pattern for at least two widths, so it's not that unusual of a change.

I've had just about enough of wearing denim. What options are there in terms of slim fit trousers akin to zam barrett's offerings.

come to LA, have your body get adjusted to the temps and then when it drops into the 30s and 40s you will be complaining like the rest of us, this is a commonly regurgitated fallacy i'm tired of hearing

my ex-gf lived in chicago her whole life and would complain when it was 70 here...i told her "but you're from chicago"

I just moved up to SF from LA and I'm wearing jackets and knits all day everyday

@jet I wasn't trying to make a comparison, just stating the difference. I'm from Sydney, Aus. I've lived in the US for about 9 years. A "cold" winters day in Sydney is probably very similar to LA (like mid-lower 40's being really cold).

That realization that the only shoes you wear are shell.

Yup, when I lived in Ann Arbor, I remember feeling like 30-40's were warm enough to wear a light tee and a hoodie. When, I went back to Cali and lived here for an extended period of time, 30's and 40's felt like hell. Shit even 50's felt cold.

For me it's more a matter of humidity than heat, as 25c with high humidity feels worse than 35 with low.

Yes and no.  In general, yes, but I think that it's much easier to reacclimatize to the climate in which you were raised than to adjust to a new climate.  Also, no matter how you perceive it, 5F is not 50F, and the minimum amount of clothing needed reflects this, no matter how acclimatized you are.  

 

Moving from Canada, on the Great Lakes (so, cold and cloudy), to LA, was intense.  I landed in September, and it felt like the brightest, hottest, day in my life. That's the othe thing that takes some getting used to - new light levels.  I walked 15 minutes to get groceries, I thought that I would first be blinded, and then, probably melt.  It took a few months to get the hang of LA weather and light levels (I wore a cap pulled down low all the time), and yes, in that winter, I was shivering, like everyone else, whilst wearing a sweater and jacket, in 50 degree weather. However, when I went back home for the holidays, my LA clothes just didn't cut it.  

 

However, some people just seem to have greater or lesser tolerances for heat or cold, and also for higher or lower light levels, naturally.  I have a very good friend who wears tee shirt and a shell in sub-zero temperatures,  For me, no way.  I'll have a few layers on.  And we both grew up in the same place.

I might grab Destiny for PS3. 

Though I have bioshock 1&2 to beat as well as TVHM on Borderlands 2.

I want to believe this acclimatization business, but personal experience says no - living in cold weather has just made me more of a pussy.
