1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    guessing 7 UK? Yeah the seller of the shoe is not sure what model is that is why. I've personally never tried on Trickers myself. He said he got them from the store.

    It's a Keswick/Bourton probably on the 4444 last.
    The natural welt implies that it was a custom makeup for some store or person. The trees imply Leather Soul.

    Actually he bought it from the store in London, but he got the shoes trees from leather soul.

    I hope that you have removed that ugly wax build up before dyeing.

    Picked up a Malton recently and have come to realise that Fitting 6 is the best for me. Fitting 5 is too tight around the toes and I have to half size up for a comfortable fit. Now my question is how does the 4444 last compare to the 4497 last in terms of width?

    I Have both lasts on boots and I find the 4444 way more wider than the 4497.
    The 4497 is an absolute perfect fit for me and the 4444 has to be worn with super extra thick wool socks.... perfect in winter but way less versatile than my other boots in 4497.

    ^ Thanks! Appreciate your feedback. Was looking thru this thread and there doesn't seem to be much difference between 4444 & 4479 boots in photographs.

    Would love to hear more feedbacks from others. It would be rather sad if I'm limited to Fitting 6 boots. Don't wish to half size up anymore cause they are starting to look like clown boots on my feet!

    Best think would be to ask some good advices from Shoehealer... they also can arrange to send several with. and lasts for you to try (for a small fee) if you don't have a Tricker's dealer close to your place. :slayer:

    Mike, it's very easy to do, use a dark brown Saphir pommadier surfine type of cream (or equivalent), the acorn will turn light brow and will get darker every time you repeat the action...

    Bunch of new tricker's up on STP now. Mostly the W2298 last, which I guess is a bit slim
    compared to the 4497s last. You can get a discount that brings them to about $300.

    Thoughts?
