    Thanks Paul for the advice, I will check CJ Galway 2 out sometime. I had a pair of skye, but I see the same issue on it too >.<

    The G2 I tried was the regular E width. It was a bit too big for me overall, but that area was one of the worst. I'd like to try that 325 last on a D width. I must admit to Coniston Envy. I have the 365 in D and no problem with extra material there.

    Do you know how does your cobbler shrink the leather? Is it possible to do?

    I have a similar annoyance with my Jodhpur boots, as I posted before: is like having some excess material on the side and I will like to know how to correct the "bubble" that pops were marked:

    Thank you! They are Allen Edmonds, brown cordovan shell Higgins Mill from a 2018 GMTO. About 20 of these exist, some from that GMTO and a few more from AEs recent trunk show.

    Waiting today for a bourbon shell pair and a blue shell pair.

    (My first time ever posting my own content on Styleforum [and cross-posted to the bespoke shoes thread]…)

    Role Club (a.k.a. Brian the Bootmaker) chukkas in natural CXL horsehide, customized with a higher shaft. So really "George boots" if we're being technical.

    Gorgeous leather, clean stitching, terrific last, obvious care put into every detail – really the total package. Couldn't be happier and can't wait to start breaking them in!

    Nice boots.

    Do they really have a company label on the outside of them?

    They really do. :)

    I wouldn't want that with something more refined but you do see that from time to time with more workwear-style stuff, and for whatever reason I don't mind it. More in harmony with the overall aesthetic, I guess.
