    Both of my medallions are off-center, but at least it's symmetrical.

    I wear new england outerwear lazy moc with the soft chrome tanned leather sole for in-house. It's great on the hardwood floors and is really comfy.

    @zippyh - please be careful. Rumor is that color 4 shell is 1/2 the quality of color 8 (thus, color 4) and may fall apart at any second.

    I think I need some suede tassel loafers for the spring, and spring comes early here in Texas!

    What kind of structure does the unlined suede chukka have?
    I read somewhere that the toe isn't completely floppy and there's a bit of a liner at the tip.
    Is there a structured heel cup or is this boot literally a sock on a sole?

    As far as color, I have the following and wanted to get some feedback on adding diversity to my shoe rack:
    I currently have:

    - Tan suede Alden Indy (needsupply makeup) on commando sole
    - Walnut AE Cornwallis (oxford)
    - Black calf AE Carlyle (oxford)
    - Bourbon AE mora (monk)
    - Medium brown chocolate rambler Rancourt boots

    I'm trying to decide if the snuff would overlap too much with the tan, brown, walnut, and I should go for the black suede.

    I also haven't seen too many real-life pictures of the black suede and if they show a tremendous amount of lint & always look dusty.
    Otherwise, I think that the black looks sharp against the antique/natural edging, at least when shoe trees on in them.

    Thoughts?

    I wish I'd have figured that out earlier but I think I've finally come to the same conclusion. Lately I can't keep my eyes off the AOC AF53. Trubalance on commando were born to go together. Adam really hit it out of the park with that one.
