Anybody have any photos of cipresso cordovan. Seems black with hints of green (which is perfect for me). Also anybody know what last the Tres Bien ones are built on?

That link is mahogany - it's definitely not green (closer to a very dark Color #8)

 

Trickers used to source their shell from two sources - horween for conventional colours and I think they use a tannery in spain or italy for the more exotic colours (as opposed to the Argentina claims in that link). I think Meermin use a tannery in Argentina, but I know they are experimenting with shells from another tannery in more exotic colours.... so their (future) exotic colours may indeed be from the same tannery.

Aloha, adding to this can anyone assist an insight to sizing.

 

How do the Tres Bien pair fit?

There were rumors that Tricker's uses Horween Cordovan but I don't think they were ever confirmed.
For sure they use Comipel. The last pair of cordovan Tricker's I got had a little Comipel tag.

The 4 eyelets suggests to me 4444 but that's only a guess.
All the 4 eyelet longwings I can recall seeing have been 4444.

The 5 eyelet ones have been on the 81 or 2298.

Thanks, emailed Tres Bien they had no idea neither but I was thinking 4444.

The 4444 fits like .25 sizes big for me, so if the shell is a tiny bit looser than 9.5 might work. Gonna wait for the next discount then kop though $570 shipped is tempting now

The mogano cordovan Allan boots that Paul & Friends were/(are?) selling were advertised as being of Japanese origin.

Comipel gets their hides from Japan and processes them in Italy.

About to pull the trigger on some Burfords from Pediwear. Trying to decide between Antique Marron and Espresso. I'll be wearing them to work (I'm a university lecturer) with cords, moleskins, blazer. I'm leaning a little more toward Espresso, as I have darker features and it'll be a little more formal. What do you reckon?
