'By hand' isn't an arbiter of quality.Yes exactly.
Once trickers start making their £ 450 shoes by hand, this will a great opportunity to compare it to whites.
Most of White's handsewn line, however, retails for closer to £600 in the UK, and if I had to pick between my White's and my Tricker's for consistency of QC and general finishing, it's Tricker's every time.
That's not a criticism of White's; Tricker's literally make dress shoes for royalty. Complaining that White's finishing isn't as good as Tricker's would be like complaining that Tricker's don't make logging boots; they're different brands filling a different need.
