Earlier this year I got fed up with all the crappy "contemporary designer" shoes I've had through the years and decided to try a pair of church's. I now own two pairs:
Consul, size 8 G on the 173 last
Chetwynd, size 8 G on the 100 last
The Consul fit me fine, more or less, after breaking them in. But strangely, the Chetwynd seem to be a bit narrow, even though they were bought with a good amount of wear on ebay.
My question is: Does the stitching on the Chetwynd make them less likely to widen? Or is this a matter of what leather that has been used (the leather on the Chetwynd feels a bit stiffer)?
Thanks for you answers
