I agreed 100% 7 Brass eyelets and burgundy would be awesome. 

So are we leaning more towards on an Eaton?

- This forum is crazy about Eaton.

We may have a winner!

Looks just like the boot you described, quite gorgeous may I add.

It does indeed.

Hi guys.

There are some very nice ideas for future MTO's on here & great photos of what have already been made.

One, and not the only one good thing about living in Doncaster, is the fact that I am 10 minutes from Shoehealer & will be in the shop tomorrow to collect my pair of Tricker's Stow in Coffee Burnished.

I know that Richard keeps up with his email correspondence very well but please feel free to dm me any questions or requests for photos of shoes, boots, the shop or even the staff & I will do my best.

One question I will ask is re the striped pull tabs that have been mentioned.

I enjoy looking at your ideas & hope the Iris Cordovan makes a reappearance as I love mine,although controversially I had the Commando Soles replaced with Rendenbach leather soles by Shoehealer.

I did post photos on here for those that haven't seen the process & results.

I may be opening the flood gates here but as I am lucky enough to be in the shop with Richard tomorrow I will do my best to ask any questions on your behalf.

Jonny.

I am in!

Hi guys,

A couple of months ago, I bought a pair of coffee burnished Eaton from Richard. I really love the boots but they are UK12 and after a bit of wearing I realized they are half size too big. I would like to try to sell them in order to join one of your next MTOs. Could anybody recommend me how/where should I try to sell them? I have also Tricker's shoe trees.

Thanks.

I might be interested in those. Could you private message me with details and pics?

A winner indeed, my o my, cant decide to go for stow or eaton, too bad that cant do them both. I am still tilting toward eaton as I dont have one, but if majority opts for stow, I will abide. At this point consider me 80% in (still waiting for Acorn captoe mto to be delivered, ParcelForce still hasnt shipped it from England...urgh....but that was expected), hoping I dont get taxed on it by CRA (which ends up almost 40% including import duties) I will jump all over this MTO.

post #1060 of 1234

I might be interested in the scotch grain on a 4444 last. I do prefer Eaton but I can go for any other model as long as it is with a straight toe cap.  (I guess that is the same as Eaton or Herman :-))

Medalion or no medalion... I vote for no medalion.

 

If it is on a red Dainite sole I prefer the linning to be of a similar colour and not blue. I already got two pairs with an orange lining so maybee red linning and pull tab?

 

But I let you guys decide, I`m on the sideline on this MTO and will see how it develops.

 

I haven`t got my Eaton Acorn Antique yet so I am hoping a width 5 will fit, my other MTO is on a 4444 last with a width 6. I`am thinking that a width 5 will fitt without my usual insoles and not wearing heavy socks, so the plan is to use the width 5 pairs when it not so cold. The temprature drop where I live from summer to winter is normaly approx 40-45 celsius.

Regarding the linning, would a linning with more contrast be an option (dark/light). I think a linning like  the one on this illustration from Shoe Healer would be nice. It would be matching the natrual welt and make a nice contrast to the rest of the boot. The binding and pull tab could be a tad darker than the scotch grain, trickers-options1.jpg 38k .jpg file

One of my other MTO Eatons with a black binding and matching pull tab. The natrual welt have got a mix of Saphir burgundy/black/cognac added to reduce the contrast to bind all parts of the booth more togheter. That`s what I like with the natural welt, you can add that personal toutch if you want with some Saphir cream.

Please let Richard at Shoe Healer know if you are interested otherwise, sadly, this MTO will sink.

 

The spec:

 

Burford Boot on 4497s last, Fitting 5.
Gaucho Repello Suede.
Mushroom Binding.
Natural Barbour Welt.
Brown Dainite Sole.
Vintage Green Calf Lining.
Brown Pull Loops.
Four Brass Eyelets, Three Brass Ski-Hooks.
Leather Laces.

 

Here is a picture of one in a different colour:

Merry Christmas


Dear All,

 

Happy New Year.

 

Sadly, we don't seem to have enough interest in this MTO.  I might start saving and go for it anyway, but it looks like we might have to forget it as a group order.

 

However, if three more interested fellows show up I am sure that we can resurrect the deal.

 

All best,

MM

Easy All,

Well my MTO Acorn Eaton's arrived this morning (brilliantly shot by vchau76) & they are proper stunners totally made-up with the end result. Was a tad nervous about the acorn but they work a treat. Absolutely delighted with the finish if this boot.

A tad bias but these are right up there for me as one of the best looking MTO's to date & agreed think Richard & theTeam will shift any additional pairs quickly....Don't Sleep!!!

Thanks again to everyone that got on board to make it happen and also to the Shoe Healer for the best service by a Country mile.

Best
Dom

Hello all - talking a count it appears most of you are on board with an Eaton version of the burgundy scotch grain boot, so I will jump on board as well.

 

The following have expressed interest:

 

prurient
Baldrick
rydenfan
rainbowgrease
roadway
ducky

 

 

Tentative Specs are as Follows:

 

Tricker's Eaton Model (w/ no medallion on toe) i.e. a perforated captoe boot
Burgundy scotch grain leather on the quarters and vamp area.
Plain Burgundy on captoe, facings and heal counter.
Brass Eyelets??? (I suggest dark brown like boot number 2)
Dark brown binding
Dark brown laces.
Red Lining & pull Tabs.
Red Dainite sole
Natural barbour Welt
4444 Last / 5 Fitting

 

Honestly I can do away with the dark binding guys. The burgundy stow looks awesome with dark eyelets.
