    Very nice. I often have the same dilemma when casually dressed: tuck in my shirt, or forego displaying the excellence of my belt. [​IMG]

    The shirt-in or -shirt out issue is one of the most difficult to deal with, since Welt worry. For years I have worn them out. From what I see on the net, this is largely a crime. And my age must be considered in any decision I make. I am planning a whole summer (such as it is) to wearing in. I am thinking of dark blue chinos, red Tricker's and a white shirt. tucked in, for one day each week.

    Oh dear Munky, let's not rehash the great Welt War. Too many good men came unstitched.

    My rule with the tuck is: if it has a collar or a layer over it, it's generally tucked in. Otherwise, dealer's choice. Though I have most of my collared shirts cut to be worn either way...

    Let's not re-visit the Welt Wars….

    Boston, you make a good point.

    Other factors include age and setting. Casual is very often untucked out here.

    Munky, blue chinos, red Tricker's and a white shirt would be particularly apropos in the States on July 4th! : )

    Apologies if this has been asked and answered previously, but my search skills appear to be well below par- who does Richard/The Shoe Healer use for international shipments?

    Yes, you'll have to pay duties. [​IMG]

    You can request parcelforce, which is a division of the Royal mail, or use DHL. I used DHL and did not pay any duties.

    Actually he can ship parcel force which means it's highly unlikely you pay duties

    Thanks, guys.

    Duties aren't the driving concern for my question; I've had nothing but problems with DHL and I'd rather get kicked in the groin than deal with them. My favorite service is still UPS, but Parcelforce is an acceptable alternative.

    If you wear a size 9 Trickers Stow in 4497, can you wear a size 8 Trickers Bourton in 4444?

    I think that would be pushing it.
    I wear a 9.5 in 4497 and 9 in 4444.

    Does anyone have experience with the Tricker's x Superdenim chukka boots? I have wide, high-volume feet, so I need all the girth the 4444 provides (especially in fitting 5). I'm eyeing these snuff chukkas, and the description says this model has "a slimmer soul". Not sure what that means, exactly.

    It's a misspelling and should read 'slimmer sole' as they have a single leather sole rather than a double one. The volume in the uppers will not be affected, so they should fit you fine if this is the size you normally take.

    If the size 9 fits you well, then no. If it's on the large side of acceptable, then maybe. I wear an 8.5/9 in the 4497. I can wear a 9UK with a thin insole and medium weight sock (like a hiking sock) which is fine for a country boot. I take an 8 in the 4444. The 8.5UK, for me, is just right with a thin dress sock.

    So, again, like Zippyh says, probably pushing it if the 9UK fits you really well.

    Best,

    S

    Ah, of course. That makes sense now. Thanks for the feedback!

    Robert in dark grey calf with blue Itshide outsole. Seeing them sitting around at a low price for so long eventually broke me down.

    Love that gray and blue combo. I've been mentally constructing an Eaton boot with that pairing.
