Shoe Damage Report & Porn Central - Part I - Page 351  

post #5251 of 14248
Hi Guys,

This is a Trickers "Boughton". It is not a 'bespoke shoe' but does come from Tricker's 'Private Client' collection.

If I understood correctly that makes it a standard benchmade shoe made on the last of the particular client. There would have been no fittings - the client would simply have been presented with the finished shoe.

Have I got that about right?

I like it a lot and hope nobody is upset that I have posted it here in this thread.

Regards,

Graham

That's a very exceptional design.

I would wear them. Thanks for sharing.

Not to be an asshole but those trickers are pretty ugly, they look like bubbles.

Bubbles?

They are most definitely a wide fit (as in a Tricker's '6' fitting).

In the respect that you possibly like your shoes 'sharp' I know where you might be coming from.

If we allude to cars you are then trying to compare a Bentley or with something more sporty.

However the cut, workmanship and style are anything but ugly IMO.

The age of the client would influence the aesthetic appreciation of a shoe.

In this case the original client of the shoe is perhaps a man of about 60 who has to present a conservative and consistently establishment demeanour.

No doubt, as a younger man in different circumstances, he (like you) might see the world ( and his shoes ) differently.

Regards,

Graham

Here's a pair I recently picked up from Lance's latest shipment of Mantellassis. Unfortunately, right now, I'm sans a digital camera, so I've grabbed the original photos of the shoes from Lance's web site. Only caveat: I still haven't seen them in vivo, so I can't comment on fit or last, but would definitely be interested in hearing general observations, either good or bad. Here are the links: http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/images/11693.JPG http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/images/11692.JPG http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/images/11691.JPG http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/images/11690.JPG http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/images/11694.JPG Enjoy!

Pledge, that shoe has a lot of flair! It is nice to see a variation on a monk. So many of them look alike. I suppose it isn't for everyone but I would like a pair.

Thanks, pocketsquareguy. Can you pinpoint in particular what it gives the shoe it's "flair"? Perhaps the reverse stitching? or the antiquing? or the unconventional vamp? Either way, I can't wait to get my hands on these. Now I just have to hope that they fit!

I bought these shoes off of eBay several months ago. They are Edward Green Chelsea's on a 32 last in burgundy. They are really amazing. I asked some guys from AAAC if they could identify when they were made and some estimated mid-80's. They are in perfect condition - sole has no noticeable wear, the heels are in perfect condition, and the uppers are immaculate (no scratches etc). I shined them up for this photo and hope you will agree with me that they are beautiful shoes

I think the eBay seller found these at an estate sale and the original owner had hardly ever worn them. I am proud to own them now. Sometimes lady luck smiles on me.

Terrific antiquing on that EG. Good to see some Trickers represented here.
