Do you think some of the attraction of Cordovan, ie the creasing and patina that develops over time can be 'lost' in a model with Brogue Punching ?
Only my own personal opinion, after seeing a few pairs of Cordovan after years of wear. I see models like the Burford, or perhaps the Austerity Stow in Cordovan working for me.
What do you think Guys ?

I'm normally just drawn to brogues (and, really, I should probably branch out). It may be time for a chukka or ptb.

Thoughts on a shell chukka or even a saddle shoe if possible, guys?

I'd be up for a shell chukka or ptb like the woodstock...

I'd be up for a shell chukka with medallion.

if anyone's interested in some Tricker's for fall/rainy weather, my burford boots (with are now sold out on STP) are available: http://www.styleforum.net/t/308645/trickers-espresso-scotch-grain-burford-boots-uk9-us10

also I'd be interested in a shell ptb but not a chukka

Calling to all those that have the Chepstow Jodhpur boot: Any pics? I'm in the market for this type of boot and the Chepstow is under consideration.

How is the 2161 fit? It's a smart shoe last, correct? Is it similar to the C&J 241?

Guys, I heard back from Richard about a green shell MTO. The Tricker's factory is closed for two weeks, so we'll pin down details when they're back. I'll post in the MTO thread then. Thanks!

Happy to advise you Sir, that the 2161 Last of Tricker's 'Jermyn St.' Collection is considered to be Regular Fitting. I never found anyone yet sizing up or down into this Last. Not personally familiar or aware of C&J 241 Last so cannot comment I'm afraid.

Richard.

New Lollipop Red Woodstocks arrived today. I wasn't sure about the black piping, but I definitely think it works with these. I now know why several of you like this leather so much.

You raise an excellent point, and I would say that austerity / cap-toe brogueing is as far as I would go on most shell cordovan models (especially the darker shades).  I do have a pair of LWBs in whiskey shell, but I think that works better because there's a nice contrast between the tannish colored uppers and the more darkish brogue detailing.  With the darker shades of cordovan, however, I would agree that too much brogueing spoils the fun of watching a patina emerge on one's shoes . . .

 

Have never really liked plain-toe bluchers, as I think plain-toe works better on chukkas, chelseas, oxfords, and some monkstraps.

Looking forward to the Chepstow. Is the single leather version a SH exclusive?

No Sir. The Chepstow and it's Elastic Gusset 'cousin', the 'Lambourn were both made with Double Leather Soles until around 2-3 years ago, when the factory changed the Specification to Single Leather Sole.

Best,
