I've been tempted by the Simply seamless due to the technical achievement, but it always seemed a bit 'blobby' to me.

I think it's absolutely stunning.  What holds me back is the steep premium over the very nearly as nice standard wholecut.

How much is that premium for seamless whole-cut? What's the total price?

Been a little while since I bought my chukkas, which was the last time I checked them out, so I'm not solid on the exact numbers.  But I recall something in the neighborhood of an $800 premium - and remember thinking what a nice second pair of shoes that would buy.

 

Of course, with sufficiently deep pockets, such considerations are irrelevant.  And I absolutely get the appeal of the seamless in terms of aesthetics, exclusivity and craftsmanship.  They are simply terrific. :)

Thank you that indeed is steep premium. I might drop by St. Crispin trunk show this November in NY to check them out. The ting is I am really find it hard to justify that kind of the price but one can never know.
I have a pair of vass that are essentially two cut model, there is no stitching at the back of the shoe and I must admit it looks sexy.

I inquired with Philip about a seamless whole cut with a side lace kind of like Berluti. He said he could do it, then again I have the same hang ups as Roger. I will probably do it after I own 30 shoes or something.
