Comparing C&J to Testoni's norwegians is like comparing apples to oranges (to me at least) because one shoe is much more casual due to the stitchings. But quality wise, I believe that Testonis are better finished. But when comparing the finishing and polishing to EGs, EGs are better. You pay a premium for the name and the additional work on the stitchings.
