Tricker's MTO - Forum group buy - Page 79

post #1171 of 1234
I've just discovered the Shoe Healer gallery of past MTOs and saw something I liked, this stitch toe cap balmoral in black:http://www.shoehealer.co.uk/trickers/custom-made-trickers-gallery/custom-made-trickers-balmoral-detail



There was some talk early in this thread of Alfred Sargent maybe being a better choice for a MTO balmoral thanTrickers, but that looks fine to me (not sure about the red lining and pull tab though).

I'm looking for a plain (no broguing but with stitch detailing) black boot on dainite / ridge that isn't so elongated and chisel toed as the Crockett and Jones Northcote, but is a sleeker than every other boot I've come across (EG Galway is out of my price range). Anybody else interested in something similar? I'd be equally interested in a derby as an oxford boot.

That bal boots is done the 6038L last, one of Tricker's city lasts. The only other boot made on that last is a lightweight Stow with finer broguing much like the not Stows from STP.

Dear All,

 

Sad news, my Ultimate Desert Boot MTO split.  Just one of those things ....  the important thing is how everyone responded.

 

First of all Richard was as devastated as me.  He had them collected ASAP and returned them to the factory, no quibbles.

 

Secondly, Tricker's were extremely sorry.  Hands up, their fault.  They made up a replacement pair ... again no quibbles.  And they did it in three weeks!

 

I have just received them from Richard (including an added bonus ... thank you for your generosity, Sir).  They somehow look better than the originals.  And careful inspection reveals them to be a little more robust around the area where the originals split.

 

So, a disappointment followed by exemplary customer service.

 

We all love Tricker's ... or we wouldn't be on here.  And we all consider Richard and Shoe Healer to be the best at what they do.  I just wanted to make the point that they are both even better than we thought.

 

Thank you Tricker's for putting things right.

 

Thank you Richard for setting he highest standards in the business ... your level of customer support is unsurpassed and an example to everyone else of how it should be done.

 

MM

 

here are Richard's pics of the boots:

Glad it worked out for you in the end.

Where did they split?

They split along the outside quarter panel seam, just back from the facing .... a tear of about 4cm in length.

 

The replacements feel as though they have more overlap ... i.e. they shouldn't be stitched through the skived part of the hide.

 

They are lovely boots.

Word!

We may need less than 6 if Richard takes a few for the shop.

How are you sizing 2298?
post #1181 of 1234
Going UK 11 so US 12. Everything I've read says it's standard 1 size down

what do you think of the contrast stitching? this boot has dark brown welt, we will have light brown but i like the idea of a lighter colored stitch

I'm in.

I got same size in 2298 as in 4497.
The 2298 fits a bit snugger. I can wear 4497 with heavy socks but dress socks with the 2298.

Thanks! That's what I was thinking. Probably similar to my 2161 Chukkas
