    Was wondering if the Tremont last was TTS. While the shape may be different, is the sizing similar to the aberdeen last? Was interested in picking up a pair of the 974 (wingtip bal oxford). I wear 10D in barrie and 10.5D in aberdeen. Should I go with 10.5D in Tremont? Thanks in advance!

    1. You are not alone my friend. Each pair of handmade shoes/boots fits a bit different, even if on the same last. Add to that shell v. calf v. suede v. CXL and you are basically guaranteed to have a shoe that fits slightly different.
    2. Do you have an assistant that travels with you to take "in motion" pics? :)

    Is this crease normal on a brand new PTB?

    Order both sizes and send one back. I'm 100% serious. The Tremont is a "tweener" inasmuch as some go TTS and some go 1/2 down.

    No way to tell without ordering yourself. Half would do 10.5D, half would do 10D.

    I don't think it is normal. My guess would be that someone stuffed them in the box improperly.

    I wonder which retailer it was?

    i had a crease like this on my brand new Ravello LWB's from Alden SF. it was annoying, but i Reno'd them, then put some Saphir Neutral Cordovan Creme on them. brushed vigorously. it's still there but it's evened itself out with wear.
