Every foot is different and it is not possible to perfectly predict fit for shoes, even with multiple data points. Sizing guidance is here to help but nothing beats trying them on. Sometimes a shoe that feels a little snugger than desired will stretch in the width to accommodate - but not in length. If a shoe is uncomfortably tight (as opposed to slightly snug), then the size is too small.

+1. Suggest sacrificing your pinky toe.

No way to lengthen them. If your toes were hitting the front of the toe box from the get go, then I'm guessing the shoes were 1/2 size too small. Taking a full size down from the UK size is generally good advice, but it really depends on the maker and your foot. I had a similar issue with some leather loafers where I sized down 1/2 based on SF recs. I tried stretching them - actually went out and bought a shoe stretcher at Target - didn't work. Toes were still hitting the toe box. I was able to later pick up my "normal" size, but then got too much heel slippage even after a good break in period. I had to sell both pairs realizing the last didn't work for my foot. If really that uncomfortable, might consider just selling them and chalking it up as a learning experience. I've done that a number of times, unfortunately.

^^Looking good, Greg. Damn I wish I could dress like that in CA. It's been 75-80 degrees the last month or so. =/

It's not much cooler up north. I pulled out my schneider shirt jacket for the first time in awhile today because it was so warm.

where are they?

I realized after spending $250 at the tailor on them that it might be a good idea for me to go MTM on my Inglese, especially if the markup from retail is less than the $32-38 I spent per to have the sleeves chopped by 2+". Otherwise they are the best fitting shirts I've ever had. Even my tailor was impressed by them, both by the handwork and time put in but also on how well they fit on me.
