    I don't think Tricker's does a double monk other than as a made to order.
    You should check Alfred Sargent Ramsey, Crockett & Jones Lowndes or Carmina.
    If you're willing to spend more, Edward Green Westminster is my favorite.

    I m thinking about Trickers Malton boots.. I usually wear uk 9,5 to 10. ( I have an Ermenegildo zegna at size 11 though)..

    The trickres are G fitting.. Do you think I should order a 9 instead of 9,5?

    Do you know how commando sole compares to leather in terms of comfort? is commando harder?

    I heard one should size down a whole size.
    If I may recommend you contact Richard over at Shoehealer for best advice,
    or Tricker's themselves.

    Hi Giannis, if I may offer you some information ?
    The Malton is built on the 4497s Last, which most wearers find more or less true to average size. This model with Double Leather Sole is available in either Regular Width Fitting 5, or Wide 'Fitting 6'.
    The Malton/1 has a Commando Sole, and is only made for stock in Wide Fitting 6.
    Size.?
    4497s in regular fitting 5, is more or less true to average size. 4497s in Fitting 6,. is generous by Half a Size, when compared with a more regular fitting shoe.
    This information is based on 'averages', and working with many customers in store and overseas.
    US or UK Size?
    Tricker's would consider just Half a Size difference between UK and US Sizes, so a regular fitting US 9, would equate to a UK 8 1/2.
    Considering this information, the Malton Fitting 6, you might consider dropping a whole size from US to UK.
    Hope this helps, and feel free to ask if I can offer more information.
    Richard.

    One more thing Giannis if I may.
    I personally find Commando Soles much more comfortable than Double Leather, but each to their own.
    For consideration, it is possible to change the Soles for any other type as and when.
    Best regards,
    Richard.

    Burgundy cordovan PTBs from Superdenim.
    Wife was looking at them and said "that's some nice leather on these".
    I said "That's not just leather, it's subcutaneous horse ass!".
    She paused and then said "that's some nice subcutaneous horse ass on those".

    Hi Ryden and Zippy. So, with Zippyh's help, I've pulled the trigger on my first pair of Trickers. Went with LSH's black stow boot with natural welt. Can't wait!

    I'm writing to get some feedback. What do you guys think about a wingtip boot in green aniline calf? How does that material feel as compared with, say, an Alden calf or chromexcel?

    Also, how does the Trickers cordovan compare or contrast with Horween shell?

    Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer.

    Hi doc,

    I've got a pair of Bourtons in green calf. They use a good quality leather.
    Are you thinking of the boots from Graham Fowler?

    Tricker's also use cavalier. It's a subtype of chromexcel.
    http://horween.com/leathers/cavalier-chromexcel/

    I've got three pairs of cordovan Tricker's now. A pair of orange Alan boots, teak PTBs, and the burgundy PTBs.
    The material used on the orange ones is kind of thin. The teak and burgundy cordovan is thicker and more comparable to Horween.

    Thank you very much for your responses. The Trickers guide after providing my circumference of my feet suggested that I should stay with double leather soles because the commando ( 6 in width) should be a bit too roomy for me.

    Maybe I should consider waiting till the summer, that I may visit their store and try everything on my feet.

    Hi zippyh,

    Look what you've started. Now I've got the LSH Stow boots on the way, arriving Friday. Yes, Grahame Fowler galoshes may be the next trigger pull. Re those boots: do you like longwing boots? I seem to remember reading the early pages of this thread and noticing that you had gotten something like a color 8-ish longwing boot. I thought at the time it was a nice looking boot.

    In a second question about the quest for a green boot: Can one get cavalier leather in green? I'd like to find a green wingtip boot comparable to my blue cxl Greenwich boot by Alden from Leffot.

    And lastly, do you wear your green bourtons much? If so, with what typically?

    Please don't get me going on Tricker's shell. I was just thinking a teak wingtip boot would be a nice substitute for Alden ravello, especially after seeing Alden ravello wingtip boots on the Alden thread today...

    These winter snow days are dangerous for my wallet. I should be working so I don't have to lust after all these great boots!

    Hope you're warm and dry out in the Pacific NW...

    I don't actually wear the green Bourtons that much but it's really more due to a sizing error on my part. They're a bit too big.
    I've got three pairs of Tricker's longwing boots (black scotch grain, golden tan, burgundy) so it's safe to assume I like that style. I don't know about green cavalier. You should probably send Richard the Shoe Healer an email.

    I'm currently waiting for a group MTO of a teak cordovan Allan boot. Apparently Tricker's rejected the latest supply due to quality issues.
    The teak is a good substitute for ravello.

    I cannot wait to get these. I was bummed to learn of the delay but would prefer Trickers reject the leather rather than me getting the boots and being displeased.

    Does anybody know if Tricker's has changed their cordovan supplier?

    I had a pair of cordovan stows and the cordovan was so thin that I vowed never to purchase another pair until I knew that Horween was supplying. If Horween does Crockett, why cant they do Tricker's? I sit that Tricker's are getting better pricing on an inferior product or is it due to the scarcity of Horween;s shells. Did Tricker's ever use Horween. With Alden's quality control, Carmina's "a little too euro" design and Viberg's inability to handle cordovan; it would seem that the perfect way to display these beautiful Horween shells would be with Tricker's Crockett's Horween offerings are nice, but they too seem to be limited to loafers and oxfords.

    I love Tricker's designs and their cordovan offerings are beautiful. The problem, In my opinion mind you, is that when these beautifully toned "cordovan" boots arrive; it's a matter of look but you better not touch.

    Thoughts? I'm sure many disagree and would like to hear from both sides.

    Tricker's uses Comipel, but will use Horween if you provide the shells

    C&J whiskey shell Harlechs. Also consider Ralph Lauren Lindrick, Gianni, Gifford, and McCallum. All made by C&J.

    I've got no complaints with the Comipel that Tricker's uses.
