Regarding creasing, Justin FitzPatrick wrote about it some time ago, that English makers use a thicker leather than makers from e.g. Italy and France, and that they crease less than the thinner leathers. I hadn't thought about it before, but I think he is right, although it is a generalisation. Bottom line is that creases in some cases doesn't need to mean bad fit or inferior leather.
I don't think he does full bespoke on distance, though ordering Novecento by mail is pretty similar to Kielman internet bespoke, but including test shoe. You just can't make too big changes to his original lasts.
