    Spoke with Richard at SH and he likes my idea for a group MTO and is willing to take 2 pairs himself.

    Meaning I need to get 4 more, so with me we only need 3 more. Price quoted was 412.50 GBP excluding Vat and he pays shipping (wasn't clear if this was just from factory to him or him to us).

    This is the mock up I proposed:


    Tricker's Eaton Model (w/ no medallion on toe)
    Iris Cordovan Leather
    Silver Eyeletts
    Red Lining
    Red pull loop
    Red dainite sole
    Natural Welt
    Fashion Yellow Laces

    4497 Last


    Was also informed priced across the board for stock and MTO are going up effective August 1st, so let's get on this order. $631 or so Iris Shell Cordovan Boots!!

    PM Me to get added!

    Think Something Like This, but with silver eyeletts. (sorry about the photo edit job):

    Spoke with Richard again. We are looking at only a week or so before Massive price increases!

    Only 1 more is needed. Come on - I know someone out there wants a kick ass Iris Cordovan Boot!

    For $650 shipped you will not find a cheaper cordovan boot from anyone!

    I have been putting together an MTO order with Trickers and have been at a cross roads for some time with what 'Last' to use on my shoes; 81 or 4444.

    I have read and read and read forums about it the topic, which still haven't cleared it up for me.

    Unfortunately Trickers Jermyn St. store don't carry any shoes on an 81 Last as it's something only the factory do. The guys in the Tricker store didn't even know Trickers used an 81 Last "that's a Church's last isn't it?" one remarked.

    Richard at shoehealer.co.uk knows his stuff and recommended the '81 Last' for the Golosh Brogue, which I preferred the sound of (sleeker in the toes), nicer silhouette.

    Anyway, I emailed the factory who sent me the pictures below. You will see a 4444 Last and an 81 Last.

    Hope this helps anyone out there in the same boat as I was.

    Selfish bump of this possible MTO. I'm up for it, I love captoe boots, and this has a nice bal-ish note with the side seam, with a great overall make-up for the coming seasons. Please PM rydenfan and let's get this ordered. (And thanks Lee for the last pix)

    I am working on a 2 tone saddle shoe with Richard. I had planned on doing it MTO but I have received a few PM's from people expressing interest so I thought I would throw it up here and see.

    Here are the details:

    2 tone saddle with burnished coffee and navy leather (metal eyelets)
    reverse welt with painted trim
    brown dainite sole
    last could be 4444, 4497 or W2298 (Richard is checking and will get back to me)

    This is an example of what the Trickers saddle shoe looks like

    here is the color combination for the makeup

    Please PM me if you are interested. I dont have a final price from Richard yet but can get it if there is enough interest in the makeup

    So saddle shoe would be navy pebble and coffee smooth, no broguing?

    Possibly interested dependant on last and price (4497 for me).

    He's an extremely busy, hard working guy. I'm sure he'll get back to you. During dealing with my MTO 2 / 3 weeks ago, he was handling about 6 others at the same time (x 5 - 6 people per order) as well as running a shop.

    He takes Wednesday off.

    I'm 100% sure he'll get back to you, just make sure the email is correct.

    Richard's customer service is the best around.

    No pebbled. The picture was only to represent the saddle model. It will be the exact leathers in the second pic

    Found these on eBay which are fairly similar to your MTO aren't they? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BNIB-TRIC...6678583?pt=UK_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item43bef72c37

    It's a very different style. Plus the color on those is way different from how they appear in that auction. They're actually brown. The MTO is an Eaton style with no medallion. It's a true cap toe with punches. The auction ones are an Allan style. Here's my pair. [​IMG]

    If you change your mind to gold mc with espresso pebble saddle and a toe medallion let me know. I doubt that'll happen though. [​IMG]

    And that brogue still looks great.

    Hi All,

    I am trying to see if there is any interest in the option of a Bulk MTO of the above, the model is 'Eaton' but without the Toe Medallion, the colour shown is 1001 burnished & think it makes a very attractive & wearable boot.

    I've spoken to another customer at the Shoe Healer and they are keen in joining the list, so Richard suggested posting on here.

    Couple of options....to explore gauge interest in:

    1001 burnished
    Orange pull tabs
    Orange lining
    Orange dainite or brown commando
    Welt as image


    or

    Marron Antique
    Red pull tabs

    green lining
    Red dainite
    Welt as image




    or any other suggestions.....Look forward to hearing if anyone wants to join in.

    Best
    Dom

    I am in!

    Did Richard mention the new MTO pricing, or were you quoted the old price?

    I would go with the orange dainite so is not 100% Junya Wanatabe boot.

    Kind Regards

    I think brass eyelets would look good too but I'm just standing on the sidelines since I've got the Acorn Junyas pictured here. [​IMG]

    I may be interested if it's on 4444 last, rather marron antique as I've already a pair in 1001 burnished and find it hard to take care (I ended up polishing them with incolore Saphir cream).

    Acorn is a little orangish but they're pretty much the same.
