Saw those at Unipair.  Great-looking saddle, and a great combination with argyles.  Congratulations
Those are great looking.  Congratulations.
Very different shoes.  If you live in a climate with rain or a Winter, you will get more use out of the CXL shoes than the suede because the suede shoes will be essentially unavailable to you during that weather.  If that matters, then that alone points towards the PTB.     The difference between a plain toe and the long wing and which color goes better with jeans and chinos -- both go with jeans and chinos -- is personal preference.     Most would give the edge in...
