• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Trickers factory has closed (temporarily) due to Coronavirus.
I have an mto in and messaged them to see if factory was closed (I thought it would be).
Was focusing on that arrival for a glimmer of hope!
Shoe Healer closed in line with guidelines for none essential shops. So mods out of the window too...

Ahhhhhhh

I owned Sargent veldts (Selkirk) a while back , nice profile but leather blackened when scuffed and I wouldn’t take a chance again on them . Trickers zug is top notch , ages beautifully .
Good to know, I’m still tempted to pick up a pair of Ilkleys at some point.

Now that I've got the Tricker's bug ( I know bad joke, non intentional ).. thinking instead of another boot with Spring/Summer coming (we hope) maybe a shoe would be worth looking at.

Naster MC calf is really soft, little bit like cxl leather.
That’s essentially an Eaton shoe. Nice looking shoe that.

there’s a seller on eBay who has severalAlfred Sargent Selkirk veldtshoens for sale in case it’s of interest.
Even better. Tredders has limited sizes of Alfred Sargent Selkirks and Kelso for £319. Code THANKYOU10 should get you a further 10% off this price. If that doesn't work try COMEBACK5 for 5% off.

That is a good deal. I have seen a few of these that didn’t get blackening of the leather but I appreciate not wanting to take the risk. Very nicely made and great last shape.

I could be wrong but I think most of the zug currently used is all from Horween. It may be that different makers apply different finishing to it after making the shoe.

The Cheaney veldts are a different leather which isn’t classed as zug I believe. Very nice leather though.
