...come now, every single inch of every piece of shell is unique. Mis-matching pieces shouldn't be an issue as no pairs will ever develop an uniform patina.

Horween shades -- gotta collect 'em all.

Too true. Even my black shell has variations.

Received 2 pairs from Markowski. The cap toe is deep burgundy and the wholecute is light brown. I must say for a bit over 200 bucks a pair shipped, quality is outstanding.

And to my surprise, the wholecut pair comes with closed-channel stiching like their brother brand septiemelargeur. Great bang for your bucks.

It's no doubt that brands such as CJ, JL, and EG have stood the test of time and are well established. They comes with much higher price tags. For 200 bucks, it's hard to find a pair with closed channel stitching though.

This is the original 'Windsor' (with the cricket club medallion) which hasn't been in production since the 1980s. Tony Gaziano (when he worked for EG) did run a special edition for the members of the London Lounge. As the punches for the original perforations have been lost, they were substituted with stock designs.

Here is member 'PhiloVance' (who must be the world's leading authority on the 'Windsors') discussing the design features.

Closed channel stitching is the LEAST of one's concerns. It's a "finishing touch". Personally, at that price point, I'd rather the maker spent more money on the UPPERS than the sole treatment. Also, are you sure they're closed channel rather than glued on soles?
