A dilemma is a choice, or a situation demanding a choice, between equally undesirable alternatives.
What you have is a problem.

Most places can stitch a new sole on, but find a reputable place by personal recommendation, if...

Love the graphic.
It read as cloth-shorse the first time I looked at it, but that could just be me. Not too keen on the early-90s font
Chester Barrie Orphaned Rope-Striped navy suit jacket. On Sale at 31.50UKP (down from 250UKP).
Now, striped odd jackets aren't to versatile, but for occasional wear with jeans and shirt, pretty good value.
A pair of Grained brown solid full brogues. Look 20 or 30 years old. Very knackered, but after a lot of work, they look beautiful. I'm thinking of having them resoled in vibram or commando to use as a pair of Country Shoes. Two pounds
A pair of recent brown calf chelsea boots from Jones. Cemented Sole, but they look pretty good. Four pounds.
(Is it usual for the elastic on a chelsea not to close fully on the leg? These fit on the foot, but are gappy around the leg...)

I have the 1880 Chukka from Loake (which is the CT chukka, I think). It's a nice shoe. I bought it in 10G. I normally wear 9.5G in Loake, but bought it before I knew that. It fits well, though.
With chukkas, buying half a size too big isn't a disaster, since the extra ankle support seems to help alleviate the problem.

It's in polished (corrected grain) leather, so I wouldn't bother.
Try the Sanders Cheam in the Ambassador and Clubman range. This is calf. They run quite large (same as loake for sizing).
