Bris, I infer from your posts that you have an incredible collection. What's bigger -- your bedroom or your shoe closet?

I find Tricker's, C&J bench grade, and Church's custom grade to be roughly on a par.

My collection is nice, but constantly evolving. I currently only own 10 pairs, all complete with proper boxes and bags.

Hi Guys,

Call me a "dirty ol' spammer" if you wish, but I think they both look pretty fine!
Clunky and inelegant.... pah!









Regards,

Graham

Love the brogues and would have loved the other ones even more if it hadn't been for the heart-motive on the toe. /U.

I love the second pair. They look just like a pair by black fleece.

Go down one whole or one half size for this shoe? I go down one whole size for Lobbs, CJs, and Barker black.

I believe it is recommended to convert 1 full size for Tricker's country lasts, which have a generous toe box.

In case anyone's interested there's a pair of the white brogues in the factory shop this week: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Trickers-Facto...mZ310160977477 /U.

The factory stores gets a few shoes made for thom browne

Yes, made for TB most probably, but they swap out the insole for a Trickers one. Re-Trickers are very good, they ship out super quick - I got my pair (UK to Hong Kong) in three days!

Interesting small shoe in Cipresso cordovan . When I was writing up the description for these I was at a loss how to describe the style accurately.

The toe is essentially a plain toe with no cap. However, there are two parallel seams that produce the 'appearance' of a cap.

I ended up saying just that : 'stitched toe'

Any other suggestions?

Graham

Trickers heavier country boots, like the grasmere, have that fake toe cap too - presumably the leather on those is so thick you wouldn't actually want to double up the leather at the front.

Graham, thank you for the nut brown loafers. They are wonderful. Very soft and supple leather. Elegant shoe.
Unfortunately I took a risk on size. These are too small for me. I'll sell them on.

Having now seen and felt these Trickers up close I really want another pair. I am still a bit lost on sizing. I have an 8.5G normally. Does Trickers fit smaller, more snug than a C&J in the same size? Which last to take for a higher instep?

I also mailed the factory shop on sizing, hope to get some feedback.
