    They were made at one time by Tricker's. - I presume they still are.

    99% Trickers, but post a pic of markings maybe.

    Yes it was Trickers. A couple of years ago, Trickers was selling Thom Browne rejects on ebay.

    Some recent discoveries makes me believe, that they are in fact made by Sanders now.

    Correct they used to be Trickers, and they were great, but I think the concept has changed to more fashion, and less quality.

    First Tricker's, though Browne's Black Fleece for BB line were from Crockett&Jones. I've a pair, they're guaranteed C&J quality. I believe Browne's touches are minimal: a pull tag, very thick heel cushion, bigger brogue holes, caramel-coloured upper.

    Just got some in today, Sanders for sure I believe. It's not Tricker's and there are no markings other than the "real leather" in the insole, which I have seen on all the McNairy Sanders
