I was already leaning toward B, but it's now moot, as the Dundees (which I did not put on hold) are gone.
So the current (nearly final) makeup of the the Shaker Heights:
- All brown Chromexcel (no offsetting panels).
- Mini-lug rubber tap sole
- Brown edging and matching split-reverse welt.
- Dark brown stitching.
- Independence lining.
Haven't yet decided on eyelets (other than ruling out speed hooks).
I'm hoping for a dressier and more comfortable (yet cheaper) version of the Alden Indy.
I think blind will look dressier.
