I'd feel a little awkward if I'm being overly picky and I'm unhappy with the fit and finish of the boot. "Yeah, you're going to have to start over again, I think your stitching is a little sloppy," is a conversation I'd like to avoid.
I'd search this thread for "Indy" and "TruBalance" to see what others are doing, and then order from Nordstrom, since they have such a generous return policy. 
Except when you're OSB, and your manufacturer tears up the shell while lasting. 
I don't think you can really compare Guidi's leather to conventional leathers. If you look to Guidi for cordovan expecting something in a similar vein to Horween's, you'll be sorely disappointed.

I'd be interested in the same boot with a leather like this: 
Not a fan of the new patterns at all—the trench boot, that new chukka and the lace-to-toe workboot are all pretty awful. Really liking the service boots, and I look forward to more Guidi offerings. 
@missusjuiceman went TTS for her 9220-lasted service boots. It's apparently not as wide as the 110, but a D-width instead. She thinks TTS would work for anyone with a normal width foot.
