What are your experiences? What kind of belt do you wear with the snuff suede?
Can't you get a suede chukka in an E width from one of Alden's stores? I'm pretty sure Alden SF and possibly even TSM stocks E widths in these without having to do a special order. And with respect to the color, I think both look great and it all depends what you have more of a need for in your wardrobe. I'm still debating getting the snuff suede chukka, only because I already have a sand suede LWB on the way, and I really have no use for 2 different sand suede shoes.

ORLY? Any spoilers? These SWB's are great, but you have the chestnut Carmina shortwings from Epaulet right? Those seem relatively similar to these.
