Are you in the UK?

Do you think we can call a UK store and get them sent here?
post #122 of 237

No, I am not in UK.  I have a friend who lives in London.  I doubt that they will ship since I called stores here in the U.S. to get by first pair and they would ship because they will not take payment over the phone.  So I called my friend and he is shipping them.  :)  Once I get them I will do a review stating as such.  Hopefully they will take it to heart and make them available in the U.S..

Picked these up in the cognac colour. Normally wear a size 43, but 42 in these boots fit well. I'm not a big fan of the antiquing, but at $175 (minus 10%), these are a good buy. Definitely nowhere near Trickers quality, but these seem to be good value for a 'knock around' boot.

I made the mistake of buying these early in the afternoon and had to walk around for a few hours with a large Aldo bag shog[1].gif

Now that's funny! You didn't see anyone you know, did you?

I recently bought my wife a Louis Vuitton handbag for her birthday. I have never had such great service carrying that bag around. Sometimes, I think about just taking the bag and empty box and bringing it with me to the mall.

After finding this thread and learning about these boots they seemed to fit all the criteria I wanted for some boots I could wear with jeans and dress up a little while still being relatively inexpensive.

Here's my pair of Mr. B in cognac, they also have a new burgundy color that looks really nice, it's not on the website yet though.

Those navy are probably just a little too lound for me. How about the grey ones?

I would LOVE to see these. I was about to buy the dark brown ones, but I might hold off until these become available. Where did you see them? Can you post a pic?

My boots arrived the other day from Aldo - 4 days from order to home - and I'm generally happy with them. A few concerns about detailing of the boots came up, and I'm looking for some guidance on my next course of action.
  • The brogues are a bit sloppy - am I expecting too much to have them all clean?
  • There are mysterious marks on the counter (back of the boot). They sort of look like pencil markings, but I don't want to put an eraser to the boots.

Hey guys, thinking about parting with my boots, they don't get as much wear as I'd like them. Cognac, 42/9 D, worn about 2 times outside. Perfect condition other than the sole. Go ahead and shoot me an offer if interested!

How does the color of the congac compare to the color of tricker's Acorn? Is it ligher or darker?
