    Anyone know if a zug/scotch grain brogue in acorn with leather sole was ever made?

    Closest I can think of offhand are tan scotch grain on commando from the Bureau a few years ago.
    I'd be amazed if there hasn't been something similar on leather sole.

    I have seen a Bourton brogue in Sienna Scotch grain on a Japanese retailers site in the past. Slightly darker than acorn but looked like a great combination

    Soundsringing - those teaks are nice. I saw those at 1 am in the morning and decided to sleep on it. Woke up and my size was gone...saved 800 bucks, so probably good news

    Namor - those are sweet, will that cipressso lighten are darken with age?

    I would suspect so. Maybe to a lighter green but I would try to maintain it's darker black tone. Lighter shell can begin to look turquoise green no bueno

    Scored a pair of Tricker's Regent cap-toes in beechnut calf on ebay today for a little less than 2 bills. From the pictures they looked like they're in pretty good condition - I'll post some pics when I get them.

    Those are gorgeous, don't get me wrong, but I have a hard time dropping $840 on casual shell cordovan boots with orange pull tabs that I will have to worry about getting wet. Would have been much better in chromexcel or zug. Speaking of which, does Tricker's do anything with chromexcel?

    They use Cavalier which is a chromexcel leather; as far as I remember it is used to denote a certain line of colors. Trickers uses nice thick cuts of Cavalier, but I still find it too stretchy and scratch-prone for my liking.

    How is Tricker's scotch grain? I'm trying to figure out if I should get the Grasmere's in black or pony up the extra $100 for black Alden shell boots

    Tricker's scotch grain varies.
    I've got a pair of the brown Grasmeres and the leather is kind of meh. Stiff and kind of plastic. I think it's actually zug.
    But I've also got some tan scotch grain Stows and some burgundy scotch grain stubby Stows where the leather feels so much nicer. Not plastic at all.

    Given your choices, I'd pony up the extra and get the shell Aldens.

    I have some espresso scotch grain Woodstocks on Dainite, and I couldn't be happier with them. The leather is thick and fairly stiff, since they're relatively new.

    I recently got a pair of the zug Grasmeres and I can't believe the difference between the Tricker's zug and Edward Green's zug. The tricker's are exactly as you described them, stiff and plastic. Edward Green's version, while initially stiff and waxy, is breaking in nicely.

    Does anybody know where I can purchase Trickers in NYC? all I know is the nepenthes and Grahame Fowler in west village.

    I have pretty small feet which I can't find in these stores..

    It's cheaper to order them from ShoeHealer ... Even w/shipping cost factored in
