    I heard of a Tricker's price rise May 1st. Shoes and boots both £400+. Could be a load of old cobblers (talking).

    I finally got my hands on (and feet in) a pair of Tricker's. A very helpful vendor agreed to send me a pair of acorn stows to determine my 4497s size for a custom order. Turns out the 6.5 UK fitting 5 fits me pretty well! Cost me a fair bit to send them back but it was worth it to confirm my size.

    I will be mto'ing a pair of stows or eatons in a lighter shade of calf or grain (however the coffee looks great). Anybody have a suggestion for which shade of calf would be most similar to teck cordovan? At this point I'm considering the mc gold or burnished tan grain. Acorn is cool but a little loud and orangey for my personal style.
    The make up will be casual with natural welt and dainite or commando sole and I might add details like suede tongue and colorful lining.

    Any insight/suggestions for my first Tricker's mto would be appreciated!

    Are you going through Richard at Shoe Healer?

    Not enough Eaton on shops especially for small feet such as ours (I'm also a 6.5/5 in the4497S)

    Grained and pebble leathers are beautiful, I could be interested in joining you if you go through Richard for an Zug Acorn(ish) leather.
    As for ideas, there are a lot of examples all along this thread...

    MSAINT, yes it will be through Richard. Zippyh posted a great pair of grain stows recently from the bureau. I'm wondering if that leather is the same as the "burnished tan grain" on the shoehealer custom options. If so, that exact makeup would be great as an mto/gmto. Could also work as an eaton (preference for no medallion) or cap toe.

    @Canadianguy I'd be in for a grainy captoe (Eaton, Allan, Parade...) as long as it has the traditional double leather sole + Commando or Dainite (orange "Dainite" by Itshide/Commando are great with light brown uppers)
    Some examples from this thread...

    MSAINT, that sounds good to me. You can take the lead on this one being the Tricker's veteran. I'm like a kid in a candy shop - I want it all. Which boot style would be your preference?

    Guessing we'd need four more to make this happen though right? Anybody else interested?

    Well err :oops:... After seeing the unbearable difficulties met by my good friend m0m0ne with the C&J Snowdon MTO, I don't feel like organizing anything and live a similar ordeal :confused:, but I know that Richard can do it as it's how I got my Cipresso cordovan Parade :D (I'm on his mailing list!)

    Richard, if you read us... :p

    MSAINT, I didn't mean to suggest that you organize a gmto, merely to help decide the specific details of the make up! I trust your judgement as a man who knows his boots. ;)

    However, I'm pretty enamored with this particular make up:

    Might just go it alone unless as you say Richard can drum up some additional interested parties.

    Those look great MSAINT. Are those on the 4497s last?

    I'm thinking an Eaton would be great in the tan burnished grain with commando or orange dainite. Do you guys think this would look good? I haven't seen an eaton in grain leather and I'm not very good at visualizing.

    Some strange pricing at time of writing on Tricker's main site. Good if you want to grab a pair of Woodstocks... Two different prices for Burford Marron. Screen Shot 2017-04-25 at 00.05.23.jpg Screen Shot 2017-04-25 at 00.10.38.jpg

    For those that don't already know, Tricker's have a price increase effective 1st May.
    Boots going to 425gbp (354.16gbp ex Vat), and Shoes in the Country Collection up to 395gbp (329.16gbp ex Vat). In the City Collections, shoes going to 375gbp (312.50gbp Ex Vat).

    There are also several changes effective in the stock model line-up, and so far from the information I have are as follows;

    The 'Stow' Boot now includes the colour 'C Shade' and is available with Double Leather Sole or Dainite Sole, and all are Width Fitting 5.
    The only Fitting 6 option now is 'Malton/1' in colour C Shade with Commando Sole, Fitting 6 only.

    The Bourton model line-up now includes Colour 'C Shade' and Black Calf, and both available in Double Leather Sole or Dainite Sole, all again Width Fitting 5 only.
    The only Fitting 6 option now is 'Keswick/1' with Commando Sole.

    The Plain Derby style 'Woodstock' shoe is now available with Double Leather or Dainite Sole options.

    The Plain Derby style Boots 'Burford', are also available now with Double Leather or Dainite Sole options.

    Hope this is of some interest and helps Guys, and if you would like more information, please feel free to drop me an email at info@shoehealer.co.uk

    Richard.

    I have asked the factory for Swatches of the Conker Grained Calf and Mahogany Softee Grained Calf as possible alternatives to the Siena Scotch Grain. Only my own personal preference and opinion of course, but I think Siena needs time and polish before it becomes a more attractive colour ;-/

    The factory moved the goalposts a while ago, and now 12 pairs or more are a 'Bulk Order' and so exempt from MTO premiums. Remember all specification for Bulk Orders has top be exactly same except size.
    If you guys come up with something very attractive that I might be able to move, I could always be interested in taking a few pairs for my own stock :)

    Gold MC definitely for me the closest in colour to the original Teck Cordovan, and for what it is worth a very nice leather too. Gets very soft and supple with a little wear, and the Patina can be changed and enhanced with careful polishing :)
