Now, back to the original topic of this thread. As a general proposition, I agree that a bespoke suit is a "better value" than bespoke shoes. This is for the reason stated above, i.e. the relative cost of high-end RTW shoes/suits vs. bespoke shoes/suits, plus a second reason. When you get right down to it, there is alot more chance for variation between bodies than among feet, leaving aside for the moment highly unusual, injured, or misshapen feet. Furthermore, the shoe is a semi-rigid container, and the foot somewhat pliable, so that a number of feet can fit well into the same shoe, as they will be 'squished around' [a highly technical term] to fit within the confines of the shoe, and they will all look just about equally good within this shoe. This is certainly not true of suits; they don't rearrange any part of the body (unless they have a built-in girdle.). Therefore, the precision of the pattern inherent in a bespoke garment, it seems to me, adds greater value than that of a bespoke shoe. Plus, in producing a bespoke shoe, there are perhaps 6 measurements taken; for a bespoke suit, far more. This again implies, to me, that the bespoke suit will offer far more opportunity for superior fit over a RTW suit, as compared to bespoke vs. RTW shoes. There is, however, one caveat to all of this. If anyone has ever had sore feet, they know how debilitating it can be. For people who suffer foot pain with RTW shoes, then bespoke shoes may offer relief, and in that case they are superior to a bespoke suit; I don't know of any of the latter than can actually relieve pain (physical pain, not the emotional pain caused by sub-optimal appearance.).
