In that case, I think you can probably gain a mm and change in height. We aren't talking a size up, but I believe a cobbler may provide some breathing space in vertical volume.
Alright guess Ill sleep on it. Too many horror stories on shoe stretching!

Expound, vehemently, to not push the shoe too far. Only state you just require a subtle stretch. Don't mention anything concerning the pressure points the shoes caused you.

Received a pair of wholecut oxfords, Emil seems to think they will stretch after a couple of wears. After about 8 wears, mostly inside the house and sitting down they feel about the same. Trying to determine if I keep them or sell them. They make a marking in all my toes. Image below spoilered cause well, my toes...

Edit: just noticed the spoiler does not prevent the image from getting to the gallery lol oh dear.
Well as an update decided to try stretching them on my own. Since they have lasted shoe trees I started putting thick wool socks on the trees and left on for two days. It has helped with the puff tightness not as much with the width. Some observations

1. Oddly enough my left foot is about 3-4 cm longer than my right foot. Left shoe feels slightly less tight ?
2. Since my right foot is slightly smaller there is now some minor heal slip.

Overall based on the fit improvement I will try to wear them on walks rather than just around the house and see what that feels like. If that doesn't help then stretching it will be, but really avoiding that as much as possible.
When ordering again I guess I will do +0.5 in Aurora last. Definitely not TTS for my slightly elevated toes

X post from bespoke shoes thread:

Remote bespoke Winsons - just a bespoke last, regular ‘grandeur’ line workmanship. Haas Utah uppers - I’ll take some proper photos later. Love how the top looks wild with the trees in then straightens out with my foot.
Bespoke definitely isn’t a regular offering for Emil, at the moment it’s just something he’ll try for friends - he’s very open about having much to learn.

The decorative stitching at the top of the heels is a neat little touch👌
