Any loose dirt should be removed with a water damped cloth – don’t use any spirits or solvents.
This type of waxed suede is designed to scuff and scratch up in wear.
Use a soft brush to clean the uppers."
That is all they sent me! For what it is worth, I gave mine a gentle going over with Saphir suede cleaner, using the enclosed soft brush applicator, and then revived the fibres with a brass suede brush. Then a generous blast of the Saphir suede protector aerosol spray in neutral. I went with the brown laces.

Wonderful, thank you. I already got some grass stains on the toe of one boot and didn't want to make it worse.

And yes, those are in fact your Stows a few pages back! Mine are very similar in colouring but not exactly the same shade as yours, though that's probably just be the lighting in the photo. Right now I have the dark brown laces that came with the pair but after seeing yours I might switch to a gray pair as the brown ones definitely stand out.

I could've spent a small fortune in there, with a much bigger choice than found on the website...

And the man himself (I'm the oaf on the left and Michelle got all camera-shy!)

I'll get some pics up of the boots once they've been re-worked and returned to me...

Always a pleasure to welcome you to our store Ben !

Before we all get lost in the same pics being quoted...

Something new...

Some more of my Trickers Allan - simply my favourite pair of shoes for the uniqueness factor.

More to come when they have softened up and been worn in...

I received my MTO Stows in Teak shell from The Shoe Healer today--

I'm really happy with the shell. There are some color variations in it that I quite like, and it feels really nice. As always, Richard was a delight.

Where are they sourcing their shell from? If Tricker's starts rolling shell stuff Alden might find some stiff competition...

I've read different reports, but several say Comipel. I don't know, but my initial impression is that the shell on these is on par with what I have from Horween.

It's discussed here, and IIRC MSaint and rkusmant both have had cordovan from Tricker's for a while, so they may have more of an idea of how it ages.

I 'll take another round of photos this weekend, but Tricker's shell is a bit thinner that Horween's.
Durability is still a big Q mark but the evolution/patina/potential-for-future-patina I'd say comparable if not better.
post #2590 of 4669
Yeah, the Comipel cordovan Tricker's uses is definitely thinner and softer than Horween.
At least with my pair, it also doesn't seem to creases as much.

what%20has%20been%20seen.gif Gosh! Those are my dream (Cordovan) Stow! Very, very nice, big congrats Mothball! mestraim.gif

As the other fellows here, I'd be interested to know if it's Comipel or Orween... transparency.gif

My blue cordovan Stow are made from very thick leather and crease deeply compared to my regular calf boots (except maybe my last Stow, the lolipop turned into oxblood Stow that also crease a lot)

These are delightful. Are they made on the standard Stow last (4497?) and if so 5 or 6 fit? Congrats.

The teak shell looks amazing Mothball! How much did the MTO cost you?

Any Trickers in a brouge style, low cut, worth looking at for wear with jeans/chinos? There are so many options....

Bourton is a classic.
