I have picked up three pairs of Trickers over the last several months. I have the Stow brogue boot, the Marlow pebble grain derby (1829 collection) and the Regent black calf captoe (1829 collection). The quality is amazing. The shoes have gorgeous channeled soles. The leather on the shoes is terrific. Creasing is almost non-existent with religious tree usage. As to the Marlows, the leather there is tough as ox hide. The only thing I can compare to it is baseball glove leather. It smells amazing, is thick and has a great leather smell. I picked up the Trickers from Ebay UK for around $200 per pair, an incredible deal in my book.
