I'd tend to agree with the comments above. My first pair of Old English have slight flaws in the consistency of the broguing, i.e. the pairs of punched holes are a little awry with respect to each other (don't line up neatly). I've seen this on other pairs posted in this thread and on B&S. Personally I don't consider it a major issue and I just chalked it down to the charm of a hand-made product, however an EG with such flaws would be marked as a reject.
