With Greenland it will be fine unlined. Just feel a bit stiffer. If you are worried try it out on a cheap item with a similar cloth and if you decide to go ahead try it on a small section first. I have played about waxing loads of cotton and polycotton clothing using Thornproof, Greenland, Belstaff wax and also proofing with Grangers, Fabsil, Nikwax etc. To start with I tried it out on army surplus, outdoorsy stuff and older pieces that weren't getting much wear. Although...
If waxing for the first time I would suggest using Fjallraven Greenland wax. Really simple to apply, not messy and you can apply in layers if you want more/less coverage in particular areas. Also it has a lighter finish, doesn't have that residue you get with thornproof and can be washed out more easily if you're not happy with the result.
I was also told that in the future some of Veilances production will be moving to China, Bangladesh etc. Not that I have a problem with that quality wise as the mainline and LEAF stuff manufactured overseas is of the same quality the stuff that comes out of Canada but it irks knowing those pieces cost bugger all to manufacture but are priced as Made in Canada pieces.
Simon Guernsey looks really nice. Anyone know how camel hair feels and does it hold up OK?
 They'll end up in TK Maxx.
Like that a lot. One of the nicest colours ever made IMO.
Not sure where it goes but give them a call. I've found them to be very helpful. They've also located sold out pieces for me.
Picked up a couple of pairs of Cons x NC plimsoles from Footpatrol sale. £25 each. Touch.
Burlington Arcade.
Nice. The boots are also worth looking at. Made by Cheaney.
