    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.

    The closest thing I've seen is this

    In the catalog there's a women's MTO wingtip balmoral boot.

    LW shoes folks: I'll send the detail design to your emails along with down payment instructions later mid week. Eaton (Sept group): I have 6 names that express interest, I'll also send emails later this week for confirmation, still wrapping up the August ones. Any takers on Burgundy cap toe boots / roy boots / veldtschoen? start putting your name in the list, maybe more people with join. zippyh I think Tricker's not the best option for balmoral boots, stick to 'country' style better

    Yep, I don't think Tricker's is a good option for balmorals either.

    I'm surprised no one has suggested a monkey boot.
    I can't decide if I like the style though.

    What's the 81 last like? I always thought the longwing came in the W2298 last? That's what it says in the Tricker's catalog I have.

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

    Check out the Fine Pair of Shoes affiliate thread in Men's Clothing. They're soliciting designs for an AS MTO.

    I'm asking Richard about it now, let's wait for his response.
    Do you mind posting the scanned copy of the catalog, or link if it's available online?

    So it's not an EG Shannon, but it ain't half bad:
