    I wouldnt try to size down to 10.5 in plaza if your TTS is 11-11.5..

    I have a thin foot IMO and there'd be no way I could size down .5, let alone a full size, in plaza.

    Thanks. I more or less knew this, but would love to believe otherwise.

    With all this discussion of re-craft/restoration, does anyone have any experience with having loose stitching repaired?

    I have asked this question once before, but only got one response, and am curious to hear others. I know that Nick at B Nelson lists it as one of the services that he performs during his restoration, but I'm curious how it comes out? Good as new? Or is it more of a 'best they can do' scenario?

    The one response I did get the last time I asked this question mentioned that Alden replaced the one stitch all the way through the lining to the inside of the shoe. Is this the only possible way to repair a loose stitch?

    Has anyone ever had 'good as new' results?

    You would need a 12D... I wear 9.5E in Barrie and the 10E suede leydons fit me (with a tiny bit of snugness in the width)
