They're lined, these guys from Gentlemen's Footwear.
Sweet. I just ordered the Burnished Armagnac unlined shell chukkas from them. They arrived yesterday. I love them. The look, the fit and the feel of the unlined shell chukka is awesome IMO. This was my first goo at the Sineu last and it fits well. I sent them in to have toe plates installed, so I can't take pictures of them right nw

Well, actually the pictures with the "holes" or whatever those are weren't added yet when I typed in my response. I revoke my above statement, this doesn't look like something you should expect.
😂 I was kidding. Apologies for any offence caused.

Those issues with welting are not something to keep.
I had the same issue and Ioana thankfully helped me with a remake.

These are a 9.5UK on the Oscar last
Rats, I was hoping they were UK8.5, I was going to keep my eyes out for them on the Outlet site.

Here are some natural light photos for everyone. Looking closer at these, I did find some wonkiness, but what does the experienced Carmina crowd here think? Some panels have some pretty distinct lines in them and the toe caps seem to have some pinching going on around the welt.

Nice sunny shots:

I'd be somewhat alarmed by the holes.

I wasn’t aware we could request leathers from Carmina, has anyone does this and what’s the upcharge? Or does one need to source the leather themself?

I talked with Sara, and just asked what was available.

During the MTO Weekend I inquired about natural shell cordovan, and it was available. I figure if it was offered previously, your chances are good. It seems like they offer just about anything you can think of.

This is the exact reason I will always come back to Carmina. A plethora of lasts, leathers and they truly let the customer tinker with nuances. I can’t wait for my pair. I’m already thinking of my next MTO build….

your boots look great! It might be a micro-detail but I love the purple lining!
