Oh, me being a miser I had them done by my local cobbler. in hindsight I should have opted for factory resoles

Well that is the normal thing to do unless you change the welt and sticth it to the canvas strip again in the factory. Hope you do not loose the outsole one day, lol.
Yes, 100 last. I have tried on 173 last and is sleeker by far. Gunboat shoes, which I like.
Fantastic shoes, they make an statement wherever you go, and in case of emergency you can break your opponent's shinbones with a kick. I also own a pair in crup (cordovan for brits) in burgundy; both in leather sole. Church's also makes them in Dainite and in polish binder, a material that I don't like but is useful in rainy places as some members highlighted.
Mr. Hugo Jacomet from The Parisian Gentleman blog has very warm words for this shoe.
