Just to give you a better idea of Pewter changing shade with different lighting. Its very unique this MC.

Since I spoke to you last, I'm still waiting to hear back about that pair of JL Paris shoes I posted pictures of. In the mean time, a pair of JL St. James Bespoke shoes that I ordered have come in. They were originally made for someone else who died before ever even getting to try them on, so I was offered a great deal because the man was around the same size as me. 

 

These shoes are a tad long (about 0.5 or so size) but fit well from the heel to ball length, which is much more important. The width is a little wide for me in overall volume but the actual "width" is quite close. I may try to get a full sock liner added or something, and eventually will probably have the last modified to take some of the volume off of it. 

 

Here are some pictures so what do you guys think? They are a very dark navy blue, just in case you guys were wondering:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also have included a few pictures with me wearing them to show you the fit:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here are two pictures with me lifting my heel to cause some temporary creasing, to give a better idea of fit. I think that the distance of the creases below aren't in a bad place, because they are on the vamp after the facings, but before the toe. They do seem to show that there is too much volume at the vamp which is causing the deeper creasing, but I expected this to still have a bit too much volume over that area for me and that is the area that I would like to be able to reduce by having the last modified as well as possibly adding a sock liner for a temporary fix. 

 

 

 

 

Any thoughts on the look, fit, and possible direct shoe adjustments as well as last adjustments?

Looks like shoes that customers failed to pick up or had issues with.
post #3598 of 4399
mw313 to be honest the shoes you have look like either test shoes or rejects. I'm honestly appalled at the medallion and how off-center and imperfect it is. Bespoke or not, I would not have bought them.

I think an insole might serve you better to take up more space

Anyway they do look too big sorry to say, the whole thing about how expensive bespoke shoes are is that they are mostly X pensive because they are made bespoke for someone, not much value unless you happen to have the exact same feet as the person they were made for!

I know JL has changed the shoe box/bags colour, but I received my pair from a local retailer with no logo at all (just a piece of paper glued to the box with the name of it) . The model was written down in a sticker out of the box (???).  I prefer the previous yellowish box and shoe bags

 

 

Although I am not too picky about this things, I am going to claim an original shoe box (I hope is not this one!!) with due logos and the model written down on the side of the box.  

 

Do not understand how is this possible to happen coming from such a prestigious brand.
