In Praise of Trickers - Page 7

post #91 of 257
I am thinking of buying the Durnham model from the Corniche collection which is currently on sale at Pediwear for 170 GBP. I am wondering how is the quality of the corniche collection and if someone has any pictures of the Durnham. Also any pictures of the Tricker's beechnut color ...

Please bear in mind that Durham, and all of the Corniche collection shoes, are made in corrected grain leathers that are not available in the full price Tricker's collections. The Durham leather is called Beechnut Gorse Calf and do not look much like Beechnut Antique Calf (below) or Beechnut Burnished Calf (shown by Wes Bourne). I do not have a picture of a Beechnut Gorse Calf shoe.




Yours,
Mr. Tweed

Thank you both for your replies and pics. Decided to give the Durnham a miss.

Anyone have, or have any thoughts on the quality or appearance of, the Muirfield, Trickers' version of an austerity brogue for Pediwear?

Good looking shoe, appears to be MTO for Pediwear.

Definitely Tricker's MTO for Pediwear.

Quality: According to Tricker's normal high standards.

Appearance: Well, a modern "less is more" twist of a brogue. Made on a last featuring a long and squary toe box that in fact do not look very Trickerish at all. Not my cup of tea, but, to each his own...

Yours,
Mr. Tweed

I am thinking to buy a Tricker's Bourton. I saw the Keswick and thought they look exactly the same. Is there any difference between the two? I am UK 8.5 in CJ 236 last (Connaught) and UK 9 in CJ 348 last (Hallam). Should I go for UK 8.5 in Tricker's Bourton or even UK 8?
Need the help of the experts with experience of Tricker's country shoes

Dear Milkcansan,
Keswick is the C-shade Gorse Calf (Tricker's signature colour) version of Bourton. Made on leather as well as commando sole. Often, but not always, made on width 6 last, whereas Bourton is normally width 5.



Regarding sizing, there is really no substitute for trying one on. Tricker's country collection are made on relatively short and wide lasts. If you have a wider foot blade you might want to pick half a size down, but if you have more of a narrow foot this will not be the case.
Yours,
Mr. Tweed

True. In fact the classic Tricker's brogue derby is unwearable for anyone with very narrow feet, and they won't even make it MTO on a narrower fitting last (inquired in the shop).

Have got the muirfield and I like it. Fits pretty TTS, cant really tell that much it's a rubber sole and good if you live in a rainy area. The brown is quite dark, which I think makes it more flexible for work. Will try to get pix up but my camera is rubbish.

Can anyone shed some light as to the Jeremy brogue?

http://www.pediwear.co.uk/trickers/products/3205.php

Looks like a Bourton in suede with a crepe sole, but it's part of the 1829 collection.

Also hadn't realized that Pediwear had some Trickers SMUs. The navy Bourton on dainite sole is rather nice.

Can anyone help me find a pair of shoes similar to the Tricker's shown below? The model is called the Robert. There were several pairs available here a few months ago, but I was too indecisive. The closest I can think of is the Alden PTB in whiskey or ravello, although that would be over 2x as expensive as these Tricker's.

In the end I pull the trigger on the Marron Antique Bourton at 8.5
Fit like a glove - eh... shoe
