Tony in front of a wall of fitting shoes. Complete in D~G widths. wow
The interior is very posh and lovely, I`ll post pics once it opens (in fact, it`s today!!)
My well polished Barclay`s - a year soon, and great service from Nick

I remember your post of this pair when new. This model is on my wish list since then. It is good to see pictures of actual shoes worn over some period of time.
This TG73 looks softer somehow than others to my eyes. I wonder why.
Are you sure they are stocking wider the EU e widths? Ive got told they are only going to stock normal width that is EU e width.
Unfortunately it turns out that while their grand opening was Friday, they won't be open for normal service until tomorrow . By then I will unfortunately be slaving away in the library revising for my exams but I will be back in London for end of May and can provide some photos then if people want to seem them
I`ll try and keep everyone posted over time. Just two comments - first is that I was surprised about the break-in period of the heel cup. Because it is made of a raw suede to keep a grip, it was very coarse at the beginning, and even drew blood through a thin sock. As you can imagine I was surprised. I persevered however, and after a few weeks, the help cup took my heel shape and things have been very comfortable since then. I have to say that the fit is true to size, and fits my foot very well indeed. The second point is on the Wensum sole - its is highly recommended, especially for those that put a Topy on their leather soles. It is very comfortable, and extremely durable. It will outlast the uppers. With technology in rubber as it is, perhaps it is a natural successor to the leather sole - not for the die-hard classics, but does give the shoe durability in snow, rain and other such harsh conditions to the leather sole. Overall, one of my best shoes (after the Anthony Cleverly though), but the wensum sole gives this shoe versatility as a classic shoe. I`ll be in the market for another pair soon hopefully.
