    sorry for late reply here are the tricker's roy, i was thinking of getting this done in a black grain on a sleeker last, maybe even balmoral... thoughts? maybe we organize for this one towards the fall since choices are already made for the next order, this is def an alternative to the tricker's brogues [​IMG] and the link to it https://www.shoehealer.co.uk/Tricker..._Roy_2158.html Thoughts???

    That's the Grasmere, with the fake toecap, right? What about this? Far more exclusive, I believe it's one of their old military boots, in a Veldtschoen construction. We'd debating a group buy at SuFu. [​IMG]

    LW shoes folks,
    we'll use 81 Last instead of 4497 Last, that's what's avaiable, it's not practical to switch last since the leather pattern might not be compatible


    Any pics of the 81 last and how does it compare to the 4497? Apart from 4444 and 4497, I know very little of Trickers' lasts.

    Pic isn't showing but I might be interested in a dressy captoe boot in black. Then again, there is this cordovan option out there: http://www.selectism.com/news/2011/0...ooks-brothers/

    Yeah, Image Shack is being problematic. Here's the pic he posted: [​IMG] That's one gorgeous boot.

    I'll ask Richard about it, but I'll assume it'll be closer to 4497 and maybe a bit narrower.

    Pablo-T and sinnedk maybe you can collaborate on the boots design....

    Thats a great boot but also costs almost 1k

    I agree thats a nice boot, but once captoe is gone it becomes to plain

    i will be happy to collab, the ideal boot i want is a balmoral captoe in shell... but i think shell is going to be too expensive.
    what i have in mind but in grain, no shell, and none of that brogue around (not sure what to call it)

    what about an EG copy :)

    except in black

    i want to collab hopefully on a boot that no one forgets... something that can be very formal and catch many eyes, but also leaves the choice of wearing whenever

    I like the last idea, the EG lookalike in black grain.

    Sinnedk, I really like the balmoral boot. We might want to ask Richard about using AS for that rather than Trickers. The only problem is I have no idea how any of AS' lasts fit at all.

    The last time I was talking to Richard about it, he said that in general, the Alfred Sargents are cheaper. I think if you want cordovan, though, you might find the prices very similar. I only suggest that because I haven't ever seen a balmoral boot from Trickers, but have seen a few from Sargent.

    thanks for point, but can we get as many people in line for an AS boot?
