    I don't think they have good selection of cordovan, navy calf will be more realistic and keep the price low. I found this at Japanese blog [​IMG] I'm thinking instead of using "Burford" as the base, we can use the "Eaton" without all the medallion and brogues.

    it is... i think boots shouldn't look like sneakers and a blue sole makes it look like a sneaker!

    Some people have enough brown/black shoes with brown/black soles already - variety makes it interesting, and obviously a colour combo that one person fancies may not excite another...no need to get too critical.

    Just to consolidate, per rkusmant's instructions, what I would propose for a boot: (let me know if I am missing something or if you have any suggestions for improvement)

    "Frans Boone Inspired Stow Boot"
    Tricker's Stow 2297 Last 5 (Medium) Fitting
    Color, Wheat Cavalier calf
    Binding, Natural Binding.
    Lining, Natural Calf Lining (open to a color option)
    Pull Tabs, Dark navy Pull Tabs.
    Eyelets, Brass Eyelets.
    Welt, Barbour Welt in Natural Finish.
    Sole, Gumlite Microfoam Sole in Dark Navy

    Hope others are interested.


    How much would this be?

    ^ 270 british pounds if shipped to the U.S. (because of not being charged VAT). So at todays exchange rate $437. Pretty good deal if you ask me, relative to what these boots go for at retail.

    Hmm, those image links are broken.

    I'd be up for a navy double monk.

    Mr. Moo had these double monks recently.

    Some one had these for sale too. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=217279

    wow, the link is just gone. It's basically a 'Burford' with 2 leather strips with buckles (similar to engineer boots) across the top. similar buckle to this Tricker's [​IMG] Also, found out that Tricker's made this nice dress boots [​IMG]

    How about this boot on last 81. It is the stow, but I guess we could request it to be a cap-toe with no broueing.

    Also, what is the status of the Roy boot. I would be interested in brown zug grain with no storm welt (leather or dainite)

    [​IMG]


    No love for this type of dress boot? I think it would look great in coffee/brown zug grain on double leather sole.

    The Roy boots has no takers at this time. The boots look sleeker than Stow, do you know what last they're made of? Richard just send me these photos [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] They'll only be available via MTO so the best bet is group buy, but I believe we can modify the boots. I personally think if the buckles on the biker's boots are located in front (across the laces) it'll be better, make it double buckle at the front, add perforated captoe, lose the 'gear shift' patch and the wingtip.

    since there is no dedicated trickers thread -- as my friend is coming back from the UK, is ~190GBP or ~300usd considered a good price for Brand New Trickers Bourton or Stow? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Just a suggestion - Roy boots in black is very similar to the black scotch grain Grasmere boots.
    Perhaps could do the tan scotch grain & commando sole (make it 'super') for the Roy boots instead?

    ^ I think the Tricker's light tan scotch has a stronger grain print and lighter colour (almost wheat).
    Those Culford boots look nice, I was tossing up between those and the Grasmere some weeks back.
