My Tricker's finally arrived!
This is so, so true.
Is that the same Asian dude who likes to go, "BOKEH!" ?
Spectre, great to see you posting!
Are you still writing the odd column about men's fashion?
They look very nice. Trickers often seem to be a bit overlooked on SF, but they have some quality shoes and their wingtip brogue boots are great.
The cotton ones are for the summer. The wool ones are thicker and good for the winter, I order mine from here:
Useful as I only wear over the calf socks.
I notice you're a 9.5UK in C&Js.. curious if you are the same size in those Belgraves? I've found Tricker's sizing can run a little smaller than the other English makers, so would be interested in your experience.
I only like the Australian forum now. I get into too much trouble dealing with yanks (hence the banning of Diavolo).
Did someone mention epic douche earlier ? The Duke of Douches, without a doubt...challenging guys to street fights on a forum (current affairs I think) for Christ's sake !!
Funny you should mention the columns. I have been thinking of reviving them, especially after what I see as a renaissance in tailored clothing here.
My (highly expensive but wonderful) experience with Tom at Patrick Johnson and what will be a parallel experience next year with the great guys at Double Monk (God the stuff in there is mouth-watering) has me thinking there might be a call for more writing.
If anyone's interested you can read the previous columns on ludlows.com.au (right down the bottom of the page under style or something) ... they are a bit outdated and my ideas have changed a bit.
Yep I'm the same size in both shoes UK9.5, however, the Tricker's were an 'F' and C&Js were 'E'. I had intially ordered the Tricker's in UK10 but sent them back as they were too big.
Comparing the Tricker's with last 348, I would say that the 348 are marginally tigher. Hope that helps
Very nice - Im a fan of trickers and these are a great example. Where did you get yours from?
Some of the Affliates like tanner goods etc worth a look
My personal favourite leather goods are Il Bisonte but probably closer to the RMW range.
Think of it as a 10-year investment
Herringshoes - could not speak more highly of them
those Trickers look very nice.
Wonder if anyone had some recommendations for something similar, though a little cheaper.
I'm looking for some captoe brogues in a similar style. I do like the fit of the C&J 348 last (I have one pair of the Highbury) but I think the vamp may be a little high for me. The front does seem to wrinkle quite a bit when walking.
Currently have these meermin offerings as my top choice http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1967 for price/quality. I think they may be a little harder to beat but I'd definitely be happy to see any other options.
Depends on how "cheap" you wanted to go. At the bottom of the range, I would look at Loakes Strand: http://www.pediwear.co.uk/loake/products/2607.php
If you wanted to spend more, look at Cheaney: http://www.cheaney.co.uk/classic/121/cheaney-wardour-ii-in-burnished-burgundy
Cheaney make some very nice shoes for the price, albeit not many lovers on SF
Look at some of the Loake 1880 offerings, particularly on the Capital last.
