StC indeed are very comfortable. And John Lobb lasts are the worst. I don't know who they make em for. Always either too big, too short, too low, high, etc
Have you ever considered that it might be YOUR feet that just don't fit? Maybe they make em for everyone else but you.
Anyway JL7000 fits me like a dream. Almost.
By the way, that museum leather is unparallelled!!!
anyone here cross shop their St Crispins with Anthony Cleverley semi-bespoke? or own both? I have a pair of St C but I haven't had any experience with AC, although the Leather Soul guys reserve the highest praise for AC (they offer both so I assume no bias)
if so your insights would be appreciated
I think both are in equal foot, albeit in different style.
I have both but prefer the St C to the Cleverley which is also very well made and has a nice bevelled waist, if you are interested in the Cleverley then go for the bespoke but there will be a price difference.
