Would it make a difference in comfort if they were lined?

Anyone have experience with the suded ones?

Yes, they do make lined versions -- think it is a special makeup. I have a pair in tan suede that I am selling right now.

The unlined ones are much more comfortable to wear esp. since they are on the oiled flex welt sole. The lined ones will be good for autumn/fall if you don't mind wearing suede in that weather.

Yes the whiskeys are PTBs. They're nothing special. You can see more pictures from Shoemart, that's where I got them from.

Got my first Aldens (indy boot).
Really like them but feels like they dont fit together with many of my trousers. Or maybe i just have to get used to it that i dont wear converse everyday.

Anyone have trouble with chukkas on the Leydon last? I went true to my Brannock size and they are too small. Seems like to make the Leydon work for me, I would actually have to size up! If anyone is interested in brand new pair of 8 1/2D dark brown flex welt chukkas on the Leydon last, I'll let them go for a really good price.

^I have the unlined flex-welt chukka in Leydon. I had to go up a width (normally 9.5B, had to get a 9.5C).

The unlined suede chukkas?
They were definitely tight across the instep when I first got them and that was wearing thin socks.
For me, they've loosened up since then and I have no tightness.

In contrast, my Leydon longwings have been comfy from day one.

I think the Indy boots go best with pants that don't fit too slim. I think the slimmer fit pants go better with Alden's dress shoes.

Yep, I can barely get my foot in with no socks. They actually measure around a half inch shorter and narrower than my sized down Barrie ptb's. I think a E width might work, but a half size up might actually work better. Put them up for sale: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...61#post4472261

How many brushes do you guys have? One for each pair or something else? I currently have 2. One for #8 and the other for the rest. I'm thinking of adding 2 more, 1 for black and 1 for whiskey.

My sizing is Barrie 10D, Leydon unlined chukkas, 10.5E. They are SLIGHTLY loose in heel width, but don't have that tightness in the instep. So I agree, go up in width from normal brannock sizing.
