Cleverley three-eyelet plain-toe bluchers in Russian reindeer with single (3/8" thick) leather soles. The conventional wisdom is that one should not wear bespoke shoes on airplanes because air travel causes feet to swell. The idea is that bespoke shoes are typically very close-fitting, so feet swelling would be especially uncomfortable in bespoke shoes. Well, I did it anyway today, and it was fine. Maybe it would have been a bigger deal on a longer flight, but it just wasn't a problem.
