Any opinions on the creasing on these? I'm looking to pick-up off the market.

Soliciting comments on these. Bueller.......Bueller. Was thinking the creasing looks a little off, but I'm a shell virgin. Would appreciate any sage advice.

They look similar to other creased up chukkas. Some look worse than that and some look better. They probably weren't a superb fit for whoever broke them in. Who's to say if you bought a new pair that yours wouldn't look worse? If it bothers you then move on.

Color 8 LHS (lined) versus Brooks Brothers color 8 (unlined) penny loafer.
My understanding is that the shoes are exactly the same (Alden's Van last, Horween cordovan, etc.) EXCEPT the BB version is unlined.
Assuming that's correct ... Which one would you recommend - lined or unlined?

You could have a Trubalance, Plaza, Grant etc with B/D stamped on the lining.
there is also A/C and C/E etc, etc, foo.gif

Fair - my Grant and Temont 10s say 10 B/D as well after checking. But the PTB i have looks like the barrie last - it just fits snugger in the toe box.

Cigar Chukka 8EEE Barrie

Interesting how cigar varies. This chukka is colored similar to my PTB, but my cigar boots (as well as some of the recent longwings) are significantly darker

They are both great, the unlined being lighter and more comfortable sockless and in warmer climes. I wear the lined in cooler months...

Ah that makes sense. It seemed too forward to be Alden.

I can imagine the Adlen dudes heads asploding at the suggestion of camo leather.
