    Curious as to how much size variation is typically to be expected in handlasted shoes, assuming the same last and size. For example, I have two pairs of Alden for Brooks Brothers wingtips. They purport to be the same size (10.5D), but one pair is slightly longer and narrower than the other. Is this typical of handlasted brands? How much difference would one expect to see? Plus or minus 1/4" in length and 1/8" in width or is that too much or not enough?
