    STP usually has a good stock of Trickers, but I thought it's particularly good right now.

    All around $315 with a 35% off code ($485)

    -Suede chukkas in snuff and tobacco suede, as well as brown calf
    -Brown brogues with plain toes
    -Wingtip full boots
    -Some interesting looking split toe loafers (May take the plunge on these)

    I think there's some confusion as to the quality of Trickers. Are they Grenson level or higher?

    I think the Jermyn line (chukka, loafer) is considered pretty high up with English makers. On par with Church at the least.

    They've had those for about that price for months now.
    The wingtip boots and chukkas are both on the W2298 last which is more or less TTS.
    The loafer might be as well but I'm not sure.

    Do NOT expect the wingtip boots to fit like Stows.

    No confusion, Trickers make very good shoes. More love over in Streetwear, they have a thread for Trickers.

    I bought a pair last year from STP and the quality was poor in relation to the standard of their usual boots on their usual lasts. The leather was of a noticeably lower quality and I'm not sure they were worth the discounted price having already owned some 'normal' Tricker's. A couple of people have wondered aloud if Tricker's make a line specifically for STP.

    Ignore the pretty, flashing 'sale' sign and spend the extra notes to get a proper pair.

    Caveat emptor.

    Interesting. I have never heard that. I didn't think Tricker's was making a special line for STP.

    I own a pair of Tricker's shoes from STP and they're on par with AS for Brooks Brothers, which I also own. They're not great, but not bad and I don't think they're specially made for STP. For me, they were worth the price (I used a 35% off email code in addition to their usual discount, so IIRC I paid about $315). The Trickers lasts tend to be clunky, so I prefer their wingtips and boots.

    STP has been getting fairly large shipments of Trickers shoes and boots for about the past year. They list them for about $485, which translates to about $315 with the usual 35% off discount code.
