Get a cordovan wallet instead.

Remove the lining. Just a couple stitches

Alden tongues are unlined

You're going to love them – I've had mine for two years now, and they're the most comfortable boots I own with lots of character to them. I very much agree that 341 is about the most comfortable C&J last (at least for the four different lasts I own). Wear in good health!

Fwiw, I see the horween stamp about 1 out of 5 pairs of unlined shell. I wouldn't remove the lining simply for the stamp. Also my lindricks and Bb peal boot tongue are unlined

Thanks, SloopyNoob.  I kind of feel like I've left my wife/gf by abandoning Alden for C&J and Carmina with my last few purchases, lol.

Namor, your first comment had me thinking for just a minute or two.  But I know I'd be too chicken to remove the tongue's lining.

I love pictures of shoes that are used and with creases, shoes are meant to be worn.

The patina looks great, is this the cavalry calf model?

Thank you! It is the cavalry calf model. I really like how they are aging!

Cavalry Calf is essentially the same as Church's much-maligned (on here, at least) Binder finish, right?

I sold an identical pair of those shoes on eBay some time ago and like the glow they had after a light cream polishing.

That is (maybe?) correct. When member granjamo asked C&J asked about the material he got the following response:
 

[...]
Cavalry Calf is a corrected leather but it is very strong and hard wearing. We only source leather from the best European tanneries so our cavalry calf is very high quality and will wear well.

If you have any further questions then please let us know.

Kind regards,

When member johanm asked the same question he got this response:
 
[...]
 
Cavalry calf is a slightly waxed calf made to look like Cordovan (horse hide).
Our normal calf skins are hand polished and antiqued but not impregnated with wax like the cavalry calf.
We do not use any corrected calf at our Factory.


Best Regards

Edit. When I asked the cobbler i bought my pair from (mr Marcus Davidsson, a former swedish champion in shoe repairing) he gave me a response similar to the one C&J gave johanm.
