    Can anyone help me find a pair of shoes similar to the Tricker's shown below? The model is called the Robert. There were several pairs available here a few months ago, but I was too indecisive. The closest I can think of is the Alden PTB in whiskey or ravello, although that would be over 2x as expensive as these Tricker's.

    What size? UK or US?

    10 UK or 10.5 US. (I have a pair of Tricker's in UK10 that fits me perfectly)

    It is not really a collection, like the Country, 1829 or Jermyn collection. To my experience Tricker's use it to describe shoes on their W2298 last. This is more of a country last, but slightly slimmer and longer compared to the country classics like Bourton and Malton. Not a bad choice for some nice dirty bucks, I guess...
    Yours,
    Mr. Tweed


    Anymore sizing advice for this W2298 last? This is the only post I could find. I don't know my size relative to other Trickers. I'm typically a 9D in US shoes. 8.5D is AE Park Avenues, 8.5D Alden barrie last etc.

    That looks like a solid pair. I notice that the eyelets are pulled together really closely. Is that your true size or does it feel roomy?

    In any case, if you can find some light brown shoe cream (I think the Allen Edmonds website has some) that certainly wouldn't hurt.

    I'm in the hunt for a pair of Tricker's in the Henry model, without the commando sole. Which is the best place to find them?

    the tricker's are these: [​IMG]
    A member has offered me his Tricker's shoes. The problem is that I wear either 9.5 or 10Uk shoes in AS, Sanders and C &J. The shoes he is offering are marked "10.5", which according to him is a 10.5UK, but I've also hear some members say its a 10UK on a 5 fitting. What i have heard is that the Tricker's run a little short in length and it's not a bad idea to size up. Can anyone confirm is the tricker's marked 10.5 will be Ok for UK 10.

    I have a trickers loafer that is labeled as a "10-5" and I believe that means 10 length and 5 for a normal width.
    For clarity inside the shoe it says 10 hyphen 5 and not "10.5".

    + 1.

    It's the exact same on my pair of Tricker's. Size 10 width 5.

    Careful when ordering these. I bought mine from a member on here, clearly labeled 11.5 in 5 width (inside said 11 1/2 - 5), which is what I wear in the Bourton and Stow (normally MTO only size). However when these arrived they were much shorter than my other Trickers and now my best friend is enjoying them. [​IMG]

    ^^ Belated thanks for your replies. I have more questions. I am considering buying these shoes from the Tricker's ebay shop. They are available in both 9.5 and 10UK. I generally wear 9.5 Uk in C&J and Grenson rose though for some reason I need a 10Uk in chukkas (both CJ and AS). So what size would you suggest. I had asked about beechnut burnished color before and Mr.Tweed and Wes Bourne had kindly posted pics as well. Now, can some tell me if the color of the shoes on ebay is accurate to the actual color of beechnut burnished calf. Link to the shoes http://cgi.ebay.com/Trickers-Factory...ht_1401wt_1137

    Tricker's in my experience fit a tiny bit big.

    Mr. Tweed at your service...

    Regarding sizing there is unfortunately no other method but trying them on to be able to choose between half sizes. It all depends on how your feet compare to the last. Chukkas are often made on slim equestrian lasts, and if you have wide feet you might need to size up. Tricker's 1829 collection is not as wide as their Country collection, and just slightly longer than the Jermyn collection. It is, however, not a slim last, and I doubt that you would have to size up to get them wide enough. But you will never know until you have tried them on.

    Regarding the colour it looks like Beechnut burnished on my screen, but how it looks on your is a different matter. Some of the pictures look a little dark, and some of them a little light. Beechnut is a classic brown colour, not dark brown, and certainly not tan. Perfect for a sports jacket, or for your navy suit on a less formal occasion.

    Just buy them and try them...

    Yours,
    Mr. Tweed

    The lightest pic in that listing still appears quite darker and more reddish/orange on my monitor than the 1 pair of Regents I had in Beechnut Burnished calf, e.g. the color is not nearly as saturated irl. Same with the pics of my Regents... [​IMG]
