    Hi stevent - in discussing with the guys at Unionmade about how unlined suede breaks in, I was advised it stretchs width-wise.

    BeSpiffington, I really want to test that theory this winter. Maybe wear my shell plain toe boots on a regular basis, no matter what it's doing outside. Or maybe get an Indy boot in shell, and just wear it like I wore my CXL Roy boots the last couple of years.

    Agreed. When I wear whiskey (or tan) shoes, it is almost always with light or medium gray or navy. Indeed, just today I wore medium gray trousers with tan EG tassels (chestnut burnished calf).
