    Tan scotch grain (next to marron). I think a tan scotch grain Roy would look good. I'd probably pass since I've already got the Stows though.

    zippyh, I think it's time for you to reveal your Tricker's collection after the Alden ones a while ago.
    We need inspiration

    I'm liking those straight tip cap toes! Here's another pic [​IMG] What about a group buy on these, except with a Brown Dainite sole? And maybe change the eyelets to brass?

    Tricker's WB Stow (4497 last / 5 fitting):
    [​IMG]

    *Many thanks to 925 for providing the sketch.

    Imo, these will look great with dk denim and/or black. Should develop a very nice color over time if polished with a combination of black and navy waxes so the contrast between the grey and navy calf should lessens.

    rkusmant, please post these up on the other forums you frequent. Btw, I think you can safely remove design #4 and #5 from your 1st post as no one has signed up for those...

    Wes Bourne, nice design.

    What if the quarter and backstrip is also in Navy blue?

    I'd rather not, as it would make it too much of a 2-tone design (Ã la LS Keswicks)... Imo, just having the navy heel counter (and pulls) is enough to create visual interest. I think it works precisely because it's unbalanced, i.e. there's more grey than navy.

    I'm definitely signing in for this model! How about all black calf with navy calf or bugundy calf heel counter

    Out of curiosity: what's the reg. price (excl. VAT) for a single Tricker's MTO (non group buy pricing) from Shoehealer incl. MTO upcharge, using only standard materials listed on the website?

    Damn. £495 includes VAT though right? If so, then the upcharge/setup cost for MTO is approx. £170.

    I think that'll look pretty good too! But I'm leaning towards the color combo in the picture as browns will show more patina with wear, whereas black will just stay black. [​IMG]

    LW shoes folks, 2 people are still missing the downpayment to confirm the group order, please do so ASAP, I don't want to let this order fell through.
    Also for the Eaton second order, 3 people need to pay. I have several contacting me to be put on wait list. I'm not trying to rush you, but Shoehealer has other customers waiting in line for group order and for respect of those that has committed to this order.

    For the LS shoes, to confirm that we'll use double leather soles, what kind of heel? dove tail/all leather?
    They can have toe and heel tap that's flush with the sole. Let me know.

    just did PM, as I requested that all of you that submitted the payment to send me PM/email with the notice and size you order, but only few of you do so. It's getting harder to keep track.
    If you decide to not participate in the group order, please also update.

    rkusmant, I am all paid up for the second round of Eaton orders. Let's get crackin' folks. [​IMG] Counting the months until the boots come in. Thanks for all the hard work in arranging things, rkusmant. Well done.

    Thanks for the responses folks.

    Just to confirm on the LW specs:
    Colour, Black scotch grain (all upper)
    Lining, Red Calf Lining.
    Double leather sole in a natural finish and a natural Barbour welt.
    Fitting: 5 (medium)
    Last: 81

    So I assume you all want all leather heel, no toe/heel tap, no dove tail? If you think you want to make last minute change, speak up or I'll use what I have above.
