    Plenty of love for the LWB but I've already got a pair of BBBF black scotch grain Alden LWBs.
    Right! I have been hoping that they add a size 11.5 but alas, nothing yet.
    people need to jump on this thing. we need 3 more to make a sept order happen!!!
    What was the makeup?

    Try getting a salesperson to track down a pair. The online inventory is different from the store inventory or so I've been told.

    Mixing waxes or alternating waxes during polishing is fine, the shoes get subtle highlights when they age. Corthay made some wax mixes for me to go with my custom patinas, other patina specialists can do the same.

    BTW is there a Trickers resurgence, for once SW&D is late to the party as MC has been into these for a while. I check retricker from time to time and never found anything in my size.


    I would say yes as to the resurgence.

    I paid 125 and 133 GBP a pair (buying two pairs of trickers at once), minus VAT, from retricker. I think it came out to about $300 or $350 something with the exchange being favorable for the USD at the time

    Now that gets you a single pair of trickers from retricker, let alone getting them new.

    I remember trying to hold out for Stowes at 100 gbp (they were sometimes going for 125 gbp or something, usually 150 gbp). Nowadays I would drop that in an instant.

    Shipping quote insane at $309. [​IMG] Obviously that is subject to change once the final bid is made.

    Nice shoes.

    Wish I could get in on these MTO trickers group buys going on. Hopefully, there'll be a few more of these later in the year.

    ^^ Can someone lay out the exact specs for this shoe (or just tell me which post number has them), just so I know we're all on the same page?

    i dont think sept had a specific makeup. i think it would be identical to what you guys are ordering for august.

    what are you guys ordering? is it the coffee that rkusmant posted about?
