    Description says 'glove leather lining' so yes, lined.

    I received some unlined tan suede chukkas (1494) that I got at ~1/2 price in worn-once condition. Some quick pics from this morning are below.

    I was unsure of Leydon sizing, but I rolled the dice and they seem to fit well. I'm an 11 C in Barrie shoes, 11 D in Barrie high boots (go figure), and these are 11.5 D.

    I know that some here would prefer this style in snuff, but I think for my intended use -- warm weather wear, primarily with chinos -- the tan color would work nicely. Opinions are welcome, though.

    BTW, I'm not a Dodgers fan. The trees were simply half off a couple years ago from AE.

    Sorry man. Should I keep you in mind if I decide against them?

    ^ tan suede chukkas look great and are always a good choice. I love mine and wear them all the time, they're a perfect match with denim and many different colors of chinos. I also have snuff suede chukkas so I'm covered there too in the rare event that tan looks too out of place with the clothes I'm wearing.

    pretty sure they are only partially lined like the snuff versions.

    Any rules of thumb for what color wax (as part of the Mac Method) to use with the exotic shell colors?

    Thanks.

    I try not to apply wax, and have always employed a good brushing--maybe the rare application of some Saphir Reno.

    What I would like to use a very small amount of wax for is for some "deeper" scratches that just won't buff out.

    The colors more specifically are: Whiskey, Ravello, Cigar and #4 (have 1 pair in each color)

    Whiskey - Alden Tan
    Ravello - Some use Alden's Brown, I use Kiwi Mid-Tan
    Cigar - Alden Brown (or Saphir Cordovan Cream in Brown)
    Color 4 - dunno
