Talkin` about fine stitches, here are some by Marquess. For this pair, Shoji-san says he wanted to give the bulgy, coarse (tactile) feel to his stitches (like on older English shoes). Quite different from, say Yohei Fukuda, who I think he favours fine, precisional look.
Ohno san said he try to make those look like miniscule gimping. It`s now like a signature TYE detail.The guy who does the upper at TYE (Ohno`s partner) is simply amazing. The funny thing is, Ohno-san`s wife is also a talented artisan in her own right, and she makes the uppers / stiching for Clematis and Ortus (but not TYE).

Most splendid! Looking at your cut up fitting shoes, looks like you`re getting even more fine tuning !
ooo, I highly doubt any of the makers offering services that fast here. You can try makers that don`t make test shoes / extra fitting session. I know Clematis and Fukuda offer that.
Those plain toes by Hiroshi Tsubouchi costs 77K, or 770 USDYes, imported shoes usually have an up charge (due to the high import tax), but not as horrible as you think.EG Chelsea shoes cost ¥146,880 in Japan ($1432 USD) including 8% VAT. This is after the recent price hike.http://edwardgreen.jp
You`re most welcomed! Definitely not cheap, but I think they are done very tastefully!
Great news Stephan!Both of the shoes above are made with his `smart round` MARQUESS ROUND style. The chestnut one based his sample last and the chocolate one based on a client`s foot. While the sample is obviously made to look slim and smart, I really like how the `real world` one came out very classic looking.

Congrats on your new boots! ¥35K seems like a good steal! Yes, there are a slew of Japan-only C&J models and lasts, and those may very well be one.
