Churchs or Peal Derbys, which would you choose?

I am considering between these 2 brands that are 3 eyelet derbies with a very similar style. The only major difference that I could see is the Church's has half linen linings. Which would you choose and do you see any issue with the linen linings? The Peal is from Brook Brothers.

I would go with Peal simply because of the linen lining in the Church's. Lining gives it more strength and also I don't like the idea of sweating directly through the linen and into the uppers of the shoe. Sounds like cracking waiting to happen, shoe trees or not.

Got a link to the Peal? As I'm sure you know, most BB Peal shoes are either Sargent or C&J. Do you know who makes it?

I'm pretty sure those Peals are made by Alfred Sargent, if that helps.
