After some circling I discovered the entire burnishing was coming off on the cloth.

Stupidly I tried to match the shitty patch and do the entire shoes evenly so basically I’ve ended up with this result. I understand that these are supposed to be burnished but I own Loakes and Sanders and i've never come across this before.

 

 

huh this is odd. but I like the "museum"-ish finish you got going in the second pic

Kindest regards, Munky. 


the red ones are likely "crust calf" with a red surface finish, and the green ones (aniline dyed) are 'struck-through' (i.e. dyed all the way through)...

Those are lovely, where can I find them?

Thanks for this, Sleepy.

I got them from Pediwear. I wouldn't purchase these again considering they cost £375 and the leather completely changes once wet. They are really supportive in the sole. Just a bit shit on the upper.

Glad to be of help Munky. As an aside I admire your cojones for venturing into bolder colors, given that the boldest color I can pull off is acorn!

This is a photo, from the internet, of a pair of shoes identical to my new, green, Trickers.

Does anyone know if Tricker's make shoes for Sander's (or vice versa)?  Tricker's and Sander's seem to offer very similar, coloured, brogues that look pretty much identical. Except that the Tricker's are much more expensive. Having bought two pairs of the former, I hope the differences are in terms of quality and/or build of the shoes. To satisfy my OCD tendencies, I spent a good hour, this morning, comparing photos.  There are small differences...but...

Yours, steeped in neuroses, Munky.

To partly answer my own question, having looked further into it, I think I can see that the Tricker's are of better quality and build.

No. They are different companies, each with their own factory. Sanders does make shoes for other companies: Mark McNairy and, at least at one point, Oliver Spencer.
