 Those chukkas are classic unlined dark brown suede Aldens on the Leydon last with single waterloc soles. Lots of life left in the soles. They've been Nano-sprayed and well cared for. As a matter of personal preference, I've decided that I'd like a pair of lined brown suede chukkas with thicker soles. Otherwise, they would still be mine. They're awesome.

I suspect (hope!) that if you're seeing a shoulder issue it's a combination of the photo and the shoulders not having completely settled yet. It's still a relatively new suit.

 Some, which is why I'm still contemplating, but weight and weave difference is sufficient to make them both useful. I suppose it depends on how many suits you wear and in how many different temperatures.
 Just as a point of reference, I'd think about it in terms of weight and weave. I was wearing the Formosa birdseye yesterday, which is about the same weight as the checked one. It was a warm day here and I thought about whether the nailhead would be more comfortable, even though it's similar to the birdseye in color and texture. I haven't decided yet, but I am considering it. The lighter weight and more open weave might have been a bit more comfortable. But I'm also...
