    With the slip-on`s I`ve found that it will be clear by trying the next size up that that size is too big. Once you get your right size, and I would not go too tight (or a size down), you will find (or I did) that the back suede lining is quite rough, but does smooth a little and does take the form of your heel. The suede I believe is only in the slip-ons. I would not count on too much stretching, but certainly the insole will conform to your foot, and that usually gives you a little room, but as for the sides, I would say the only thing that happens is the leather conforms to your foot. I find a lot of shoe sales people suggest to go down (or at least try), and this is a big mistake in my opinion.

    For the record, my Gaziano and Girling last TG73 8 1/2 UK in a Barclay slip-on fits true to size as compared to a Crocket and Jones Handgrade last 337 in 8 1/2 or last 358 in size 8 (although the latter is a little tight, and I`ve had to remove the inner sole lining).

    Some pics of a new pair of Cambridge in Vintage Cedar on MH71, bought from Skoaktiebolaget. Very pleased. They are in wide F-fit, which makes me able to wear my "normal" size 10 and the fit is good. 10,5E is too long, 10E too narrow.

    Very classy pair, I assume wide fitting means MTO or they just happen to have wide fitting for this model? I probably wide fitting for TG73 as well...
