Quote: Originally Posted by miurasv It's a good job they do but the uppers look like they've only been polished but not refinished. I hope I'm wrong on this as my Mock Croc Cheaney boots will need redoing soon. That's a question for the factory I guess. It's unlikely they'll strip the leather down completely, more a case of removing the excess wax, the top few layers, conditioning, and then re-apply.
Quote: Originally Posted by upnorth Did they inform you or even keep track of the number of times you can send the shoes back for recrafting? The reason I'm asking is because I was told by C&J that I could only re-sole my shoes one more time, which effectively puts the limit at 2 full recraftings. I wonder if this is a company wide policy or a case by case basis. I've been told that many other factories similarly don't recraft more than 2 or 3 times...

Anyway, I would humbly submit the EG Falkirk on the 82 last - as someone else mentioned earlier, EG does the Dover better than anyone else, but I've never really seen the Falkirk's broguing done by...
Quote: Originally Posted by bengal-stripe Looking good! I wonder, originally the boots had soles stitched aloft, now after the refurbishment, they are channelled (and have a painted waist). Did you ask for it especially, or was that just the way Cheaney did it? If you did ask for it, are there different prices for channelled and non-channelled soles (as with Crockett & Jones)? Thanks. Requesting Oak Bark results in the sole finish...
