Tricker's MTO - Forum group buy - Page 72

post #1066 of 1234
I'm all aboard this MTO if the specs rainbowgrease listed is ok for the rest of you. Regarding the eyelets I am open for both brass and dark and the binding can be what the majority want.
Only reservation for me will be the fit with a width 5, I will know if it fitts me in approx a week when I recive my Acorn Eaton's.

I don't like mixing scotch grain and calf so not too sure about it at the moment. The rest is ok and I think the dark eyelets look better. One trouble is I keep seeing the coffee Eatons that look fantastic, Pity I wasn't looking a while back for some boots.

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.

 

 

 

I am not sure yet if I am in. I had thought the entire boot would be scotch grain. I will think about it and get back to you

I ended up purchasing a pair of Allan from The Bureau since winter will be in full swing pretty soon. Definitely want a summer shoe now... I'll pick your interest on a Minster in a month or two.

yeah. I would be in favor of an all scrotch grain burgundy on a stow.

however Baldrick brought a good point to the table on the contrast of leather types.

Thank you for considering this MTO and I hope you can keep us updated on your decision.

 

In regards to the Eaton coffee boots, I got a pair last week and they have become my favorite. I believe Richard over at Shoe Healer is making another order soon, you might want to contact him and inquire. info@shoehealer.co.uk

Me too, also Im not much interested burgundy. In fact, I already have a superboot in this color.
Is that Brown Zug grain? I can't find burgundy scotch grain in Tricker's MTO program.

Here's an Eaton with black eyelets

The mix scotch grain/calf goes better on Stow model imho.
For example, for this boot (think about it with less contrast)

Richard mentioned there had not been any MTO's in burgundy scotch grain.

He did refer me to a nice burgundy / Brown Zug Grain Calf combination:

I would also be in favor of an Eaton burgundy scotch grain version with calf burgundy cap toe and burgundy burnished Backstrip.

But I will wait and see what everyone else says.

best regards

I think I will give this a miss, I've seen the Herring Coniston, and I prefer the wingtip brogue with the mixed calf and grain. Wish it was a bit shorter though.

My new & current favourites that I collected last Saturday.

Hi Everyone,

As someone else has already said,Trickers do not do a Burgundy Scotchgrain.They do a Burgundy burnished calf-as on the pictured Billy boots-and Burgundy Repello suede.Neither the Shoehealer site nor Trickers own site mention a Burgundy Scotchgrain. I have no idea who provided the Burgundy Scothchgrain for the other boots(stubby Stows?)shown but I would not be surprised if it was one of the Japanese firms with whom Trickers frequently collaborate.

Yes I got the image of the burgundy scotch grain stow from a Japanese user.

The look is really nice.

Hi Folks,

 

I got acron captoe MTO few days ago. I have few concerns about the boot mfg, may be its in my head and would like some opinions.

 

The boots have leather layer around arches, and when wear it I can feel the excess leather layer squished under my foot and its not a great feeling, look at the pic below in circled section, it looks like leather was not taken in properly before welting, and this is on both sides, is this normal of 4444 last or anyone also got similar issue, I just got the boot and they are out of box and worn only once for few mins:

 


Also the thickness of leather is very slim, I only have another Tricker's pair, a stock Burford and leather+lining on them is atleast twice as thick; is thin leather normal for Acorn boots? Have a look at the pic below, there is an obvious difference in thickness b/w the two:

That doesn't look very nice and I am sure it doesn't feel well either.

From what I see this may be only particular to your boot, I cannot see the leather defect  in the picture below taken from another user

who also joined this MTO. My best suggestion is to message the other folks and see what they think.

My Junya Acorn Eatons have a bit of that rippling although not to the same extent as yours.
It's a fairly common thing to have occur on shoes from all brands. The question is how much it bugs you.

The Acorn leather is thinner than others such as the lollipop Cavalier. That is pretty normal.
