    Fit is personal. Either they fit acceptably or they don't. No RTW shoes should fit like gloves unless both of your feet have the same or very similar dimensions.

    That's the nice thing about StC: you can modify the fit of the standard last to your personal speifications. Even different fit for each of your feet.

    But I don't consider StC as RTW anyway. More MTO semi bespoke.

    I think both are in equal foot, albeit in different style.

    I have both but prefer the St C to the Cleverley which is also very well made and has a nice bevelled waist, if you are interested in the Cleverley then go for the bespoke but there will be a price difference.

    Came across Saint Crispin's shop in Germany, 1180 euro (1000 w/o VAT)
    Didn't buy any, but now I know my size.

    I have a 91/2 F in the 105. How would a 10E in the same last fit?
