However, $745.00 for suede Chukkas is starting to get pretty expensive, when unlined Edward Greens are not that much more, and they are (in my opinion) a step up from Borgioli (i.e, channeled stitching, superior finishing, materials, etc.), at least from the Borgioli's I have handled.

With that said, wonderful shoes, and I hope you really do enjoy them! Can you comment on the quality / last shape? It is certainly possible that Borgioli is making these to a higher standard than their other offerings.

C&J doesn't do bespoke, but as I understand Dimitri just works in their space.

Thanks!
I try only to 'glaze' the first inch or so of the toe decreasing the shine gradually to create a natural transition to the rest of the shoe's normal shine.

Borgioli also makes Norvegese, channelled soled shoes (or at least they once did).

Glad I read this before commenting on your previous post. Excellent to keep the spit shine to the toes only. The flexible parts of the leather need different (less drying) treatment. In short, you've got Great Toes... Patrick Booth can learn something here (nasty toes).
