Moving / repositioning Touch Bar items

The most annoying feature of OS X touch-bar, for me, is the "esc" and other few app specific commands that appear on the left of the Touch Bar. More often than not I touch them accidentally cancelling what I am doing.
I would like to blank out an inch of Touch Bar on the left by moving or turning off the commands.
Any suggestion please?

If you turn off the OSX touchbar completely in the BTT settings, then you can put whatever you want. Try two buttons with a blank icon, no background, hugging the sides with the right priority order set, and whatever fixed width you want.

Thank you
