I understand what you are saying as you can make a bespoke shoes as sleek as possible but that is because it is done by hand from start to finish with a lot of hand-manual manipulation. Now, I want this to turn into the same argument as on the gemming thread as it really is a waste of time. So please realize DW that I am not here to argue which is better, only to reiterate that they did an experiment and found that manufacturing the shoes BY MACHINE and using a thicker...
From what they (EG) told me (without actually saying it), the 890 is a derivative of the 888 in an attempt to phase it out (the 888) and have something that was EG made and not Tony G made as I believe the 888 was.

If you have one shoe in your rotation, then yes you should be worrying about gemmed vs. non-gemmed. If you have +4, then it becomes a non-issue as natural rotation and good upkeep will ensure long lasting shoes. FYI, I have made shoes entirely by hand, and while they may have looked nice on the outside, they weren't made well on the inside as I was a novice and made lots of mistakes. Who knows how fast they are pumping out these shoes in China and how high the attention...
