That was my philosophy for my eg galways where I essentially paid the mto fee for leather soles. At that price point I would rather pay an extra fee and get exactly what I want

Better nail the fit first before going seamless wholecut; its not the best 5th pair or 10th pair in a wardrobe.

FWIW, I have three pairs of Crispies now, all on the same last and in the same size. All of them fit a bit differently. I think it is just the inevitable consequence of buying largely handmade goods. Also seams, patterns, and type of leather probably play a role in the interior thickness of a shoe as well as how it bends and behaves. This being said, my wholecuts fit the best out of my size 9's.

Different leather and pattern will fit differently despite being on the same last.

Yes, especially brogue stitchings, they affect it the most.

I envy those who got to visit with Phillip Carr at LSBH last weekend. Sadly I had to cancel last minute. Guess I'll have to wait until next year now. as, based on everybody's commentary, I definitely want to get fitted by Mr. Carr for my next pair of StC.

Right shoes "many".  Left shoes "peace".

The wholecuts look great (the ones on the platform picture above, right?). Do you think they fit more comfortably due to the fact that they are shell, which tends to give more?
