    They're the burgundy longwing boots from the group MTO.

    The going rate half a year ago was 525 pounds with VAT. Not sure if prices has gone up since then.

    He gets that every time he shows those pictures...
    I totally agree every time too...
    It's the perfect match between gorgeous boots and great tweed pattern (and cut + fitting)! [​IMG]

    An older pair of Tricker's, currently under renovation. Note the lack of lining and the relatively 'high' position of the medallion in comparison to more recent, similarly-sized boots making it look 'cleaner':

    Thanks Richard. They're Ralph Lauren Polo somewhat surprisingly.
    I just happened to be wearing them the day the boots showed up.

    Richard; are those your wedding shoes in the avatar? You have to put a close up of the sole.

    You have to be kidding about those trousers; without turn ups they look like Rupert Bear has bought a pair of nice boots.

    Can you post pics and details of the process you're using to re-up these?

    After (all Saphir products):

    Renomat to clean the dirt (no real polish to remove).
    Renovateur cream to add some condition.
    Dubbin on the creases and a VERY light smear on the vamps and dry areas. Smear on the welt.
    2 days to dry - would normally wait 3/4
    3 coats of marron fonce (dark brown) cream
    1 coat neutral cream
    1 smear black cream to finish the sole edges
    Clear polish x 2 coats on the heel and toe cap (gentle dust over the rest)

    Hey presto - another welcome addition to the fold. With Dainite soles, these will do for when it's wet (my espresso Burfords are double leather)

    Nice work, Steve.

    My way is a little less involved and time-consuming, but I was after a less dressy finish:

    Wipe the boots with a microfibre cloth to remove any surface dust or loose dirt
    Scrub with warm water and a toothbrush to get into the creases
    Place on trees and then scrub under hot water with soap, toothbrush and sponge
    Apply dubbin everywhere, then wear the boots as soon as possible (body heat will 'open' up the leather and the dubbin will soak in faster)

    I didn't use polish on this particular pair as trying to polish waxy leather like gorse or zug can be like pushing water uphill with a rake - and if the polish does take to the leather without heavy duty 'bulling', then the leather is possibly too dry...

    Now they're nicely cleaned and waxed and ready for the next couple of decades of their life:

    Soles are in good condition and will probably get some hard-wearing stick-ons in place to keep the boots' low profile:

    [​IMG]

    Compare these boots with my espresso Stows, less than three months old and showing a similar amount of wear to the old uns (trees removed for the pic):

    [​IMG]

    I walk a few dozen miles every week, and rotate my boots so the Stow haven't been worn excessively in comparison to any other boots I wear. Maybe it's time to stick to wearing waxy leather boots for the real hard wear...

    I agree with you Ben, on the Toe Die (medallion). We did some MTO, and asked for the Toe Die to be 'Set Back', so that no part of it is lost behind the Welt. I think iot looks much better this way.
