    I'm sure these aren't worthy, but not only are they my first pair of Tricker but the first time I went "thrift'!

    I will get my boot maker to give it a once over next week:
    - New heels
    - Rubber toe taps
    - Leather conditioning

    Dude, those things rock.

    BTW... you are probably the best dressed guy on SF. You know what you like, you don't let it wear you, and you clearly take pleasure both in your clothes and in your life. An inspiration to all us desk jockey Internet Gentlemen.

    I dont get the "thrifting" ... But Id consider new insoles as well as the suggested things to do.
    I think a good cobbler can also treat the soles so there is less of an imprint from previous wear.
    afaik it involves steam/water and the heated blocking tool they use.

    It does save a lot of time in acquiring a "vintage" patina though, for that reason alone I think they are stunning

    If I could only get such piping on a seersucker...

    Ask Iammatt to take you to Rubinacci.

    PG, I like those a lot. In fact, I've been considering something like that for a while.

    Nice! What's the one on the left? Is it JLP? And the Vass Londons are fantastic!
