Trial and error. And trial.

I was at my shoemaker the other day for a re-fitting of an already finished pair which proved to be too short overall. My last will be tweaked accordingly, with a longer toe box. Additionally, I expressed my desire for an even narrower bevelled waist and rounder toe shape. All changes have been marked directly onto the shoe and in about four weeks I will be able to see whether or not the changes were worthwhile. Another four weeks from the trial shoe to the finished product and I am ready to go (again).
By the way, I also brought a friend with me for a fitting of his first bespoke shoe (trial stage). Pictures of his shoes may or may not come up here in the following days.
