French front or not has nothing to do with interlining...

Toes three and four (big toe being #1 and pinky being #5) slightly touch edge of shoe. I'm not used to that. Normal?

Someone who knows more about shirt construction can correct me, but my understanding of a French front placket is they just take the shirt fabric, fold it over, and sew the holes.

A "normal" placket may have some interlining in it to give it some stiffness.

I was wondering what everyone's opinions are on unvented sport coats?

I'm in a minority of one on this board. About 20 suits and over 30 jackets, not a single vent among them. I don't like the way vents flap and open, and I like the look of a smooth, uncluttered back on a jacket. They are not in vogue right now but there have been times when this was the only way to go. YMMV.

The notion of shoes breaking in, while certainly not complete nonsense, does tend to be a much more modest and subtle thing than most people think.

In general, new shoes should fit properly right from the start. If they are too small for comfort at the start, it's likely that they'll never break in to the point where they become comfortable. Oh, if a shoe is slightly uncomfortable due to it rubbing against part of your foot a little, breaking in may remedy this. But if the shoe is simply too tight, breaking in is unlikely to fix the problem.

Some exceptions exist - particularly with regard to certain types of boots. But they're just that - exceptions to the rule.

As for how long it takes to break in a new pair of shoes, I'd imagine that this varies from shoe to shoe, and from person to person. But my guess would be that after a half dozen wears, you're probably a good 80% of the way toward all the breaking in you're going to get.

However, I would add that if the shoe is slightly too small, it's usually possible to have the shoe stretched a bit. Not a huge amount, but something on the close order of half a size is often within reason.

Thank you for the reply.  Today is my 6th wear so they are probably getting close to as broken in as I can expect then.  My left shoe is perfectly fine, but my right is just ever so snug in the toe box to make me glad when I remove them after wearing all day.  Perhaps I will try a larger tree or stretcher to see it gives me just that little bit of room I need.

That shouldn't happen, especially on the 5 last. You might be half of a size too small, or the last might not work for you.

When I walk, I only notice that edge of pinky touches. It's just me noticing other toe when I wiggle them.

^ - just make sure that you're not getting squeezed in the toe box, especially if you plan to do a lot of walking. I've made the mistake before and my pinky toe was shouting some pretty crass things at me after taking off my shoes.

No squeeze whatsoever. Just a very light touch. My toes can wiggle theirs hearts out.

I had a cheap pair of cowboy boots that crammed the $! #@!) out of my toes... I switched to only D/squared toed boots after that.

Save yourself the aggravation, and take the shoe to a local shoe repair place, and have them stretch it for you. They won't charge much.

And while I suppose forcing a size XL shoe tree into a size 7 shoe might stretch the shoe some, I also know that the vast majority of the time, a shoe tree will not meaningfully enlarge a shoe's size.

Sounds like the shoe doesn't fit your foot.
