Finnishing "issues" is sole edge color on the suede here and there, as when buying Meermin at Classic level.
With regards to sole it is not about imperfections/errors, it is just that the way it is done it looks thicker/bulkier mid foot than under the front part. Heel (height) and sole is lacking a bit of refinement for a dress shoe but would be quite okay on a double soled country longwing IMO.
Only a matter of taste.

 

From what you're saying, you're size is UK8=US8.5=EU41.5.  (AS 87 Last is a very generous country boot Last so you have rightly sized down in it by half.)

UK sizes are one down from US sizes.

Not always.

isnt the convention is down 0.5 in size? from UK to US.

I bought these last year but don't think I ever posted pics of them here, so here you go. 3-eyelet derby, 6125 dark cognac, U-last, size 44 G-width, single leather sole, sunken rubber toe taps. These are actually one of my best fitting shoes, have a pair of U-last double monks in size 44,5 which are too long which make them pinch my big toes from above and had some heel slippage before I inserted heel pads, but wide 44 fits really great. Hugs the hold foot without being uncomfortable at all. These are also my first pair with the sunken rubber to taps (Rezso told me they don't do sunken metal taps on single soles, but do think I've seen some here, anyways..) so will be interesting to see how much better these will hold up than without toe taps at all.

C&J construction is several notches below EG, JL, and the old G&G.

A bit off topic, but anyway: All you high knowledge guys quoted above, and others of course, can't you make like a brief summary on which cuts in quality the higher brands make. I know John Lobb Paris supposedly use plastic heel counters, C&J BG and HG have canvas fabric between outer and inner leather to be able to buy thinner and cheaper leathers and so on. If you know, do and in that case which often hidden contasted cuts in materials and construction do RTW-brands like Vass, John Lobb Paris, Gaziano & Girling, Edward Green, Crockett & Jones, Carmina, Saint Crispins and so on use? Would really like to learn more about this, since I think it's an interesting subject.

gorgeous :)

A few posts up Im reading that C&J construction is several notches below EG.

 

Is that true for C&J handgrade as well?

 

Cause when I compare my C&J Weymouth with the EG Westminster I dont know...several notches seems a bit much.

 

Then again, I'm just an amateur and as with all things you know little about you cant really appreciate the difference when you reach a certain level.

Beautiful......I just love the 7th photo....the picture of the back distinguishes the Gazelle from the Buffaloes.

This Gazelle pure beauty..............

the most obvious is the lack of arch stiffer. Edward Green leather is also much thicker than C&J handgrade.

fit is still crucial, when they fit well they will have a minor hair-like crease line. and it is not like the EG is going to last any longer than CJ.

The above 3 eyelets darby is a piece of art. the shoe still looks very sneak with the wide width. Vass does not ceased to amuse me.
post #6435 of 13472
+1, those are a beauty, great last for 2-3 eyelets
