Not sure to what degree I find the edges of the sole "fugly"; but, it is definitely to the point I would not buy the shoes.

Where have you seen them for $2?
It's not nearly as bad as I had envisioned when I read your initial description. I thought you meant all of the seams had contrasting stitching. But, as others have mentioned, it isn't what you ordered and you should be entitled to a free replacement.
All appear to be very nice wallets. I prefer the open end of the "flap" on the left side of the Launer; I believe it makes bills more accessible. Even though it is doubtful you plan to use it as a checkbook, my guess is that model is made that way for writing checks with carbonless duplicate paper.

It's a combination of where the seam is placed on the shoe and how well it is finished. "The Dover Man" is THE man. +1 Based strictly on the pictures posted, I prefer the EG. As Tarmac said, for me, it's the seam placement.

I did a brief search and didn't see this subject addressed. I would like to buy a white and a pink OCBD shirt. I was contemplating having Jantzen make up one, then tweak a bit for the second, before moving on to CEGO once my measurements are more zeroed in. I realize the trad norm is to have a pocket (or even a flap pocket for the ultra-trad), but can anyone offer reasoning (other than "that's the way it is") for my not having an OCBD made without pockets?
