I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
And a six four Impala"

Excellent - so fed up with the usual White’s/Lofgren nonsense. Order placed - went with my usual brannock size. Time to break out my Lot 646s

Got my first pair of British shoes in the mail today, Tricker’s Bourton in mahogany softee grain—just £200 shipped along with a pair of shoe trees, and I’m really pleased with them, fit and all

I like Trickers shoes - the quality is very decent but it’s the overall balance that makes them a winner. A lot of shoe manufacturers try to make shoes that look like Trickers but there’s some ineffable quality they never quite capture.

I think the same could be said about a few of the Northampton brands.

was lucky enough to find these for a tenner in a local charity shop... probably best made shoes I own...

hey! looking over the trickers site I was thinking that seems to be something that distinguishes the 'country' brogues from the 'town' brogues... [as my pair def. feel more city in terms of toe shape and general balance]

yet none of the 'town' brogues have storm welts... curious...

@julian-wolf - great price & great score btw ...

Trickers were my first pair of serious Sufu/DB approved shoes back in 2008 .

My friend planted the seed, we went to London so he could buy his wedding boots. Tricker store on st James str is pretty cool.

these were relast by Willy,s. In 2004 or 2005. They,recup for another resole, back to tricker style.

have noticed those too which made me think do they just brogue the toe caps the same for every brogue town or country and when they have storm welts theyd get covered up in the bottom

interesting: with a quick look over cheaney, church's, and crockett & jones not seeing any with toe brogue holes so low: curious... 

also does seem like their town and country get quite different patterns as well:

town:

There aren’t many who place the brogueing so far down, but I suppose you could argue that the Trickers Bourton (and similar) have the ‘correct’ placement since the point was to let water out ... but then there’s no value in a storm welt :huh2:

Bartles shiny-toed shoes just reminded me of @Crat for the moment... remember that dude? with his insane mirror finished Crockett & Jones (before your time i think Bartles)

Trickers are not my style but my sis-inlaw wears their Acorn Tan Brogue Boots, i always admire them, they're so well balanced, whether it's in her size 5 or a size 12

Got my very 1st English boots 10yrs ago ... Tricker’s Malton in C-Shade Gorse.

I’ve always gravitated to a more casual wear & accoutrements, since there was rarely ever any need to dress up in my entire life ... getting married was one.

I remember getting stoked just looking through  the boots display window @JermynStreet.  I was chancing on a proper Stow pair in Acorn,  but discovered that I needed to size up half on the length to get to the width that I wanted.  Enter the Malton ... Goodyear commando soles in combo with the brogues ... wanted the Acorn, but Gorse will do ... SOLD!

I thought they were like the “mullet” of bootsdom :laugh2::ph34r:

edit: Btw, been re-heeled twice, but the commando soles are still original ... actually, I find Commandos more flexy/comfy & durable than Dainites.
