I own a pair of Roberts on the 2298 last. I generally struggle with the 4444 last but love the fit of the 2298. No heel slippage and definitely true to size. The Robert is an excellent shoe as well - really underrated IMO, a timeless classic.
I believe this style is called Chepton. The R E Tricker eBay shop has some for sale right now.
Thanks - that's useful info.
Those brogues look absolutely perfect. Out of interest how do you find the 81 last? Does it run true to size? I'm a big fan of the 2298 last but I don't get on with the 4444 last.

I do agree with this to an extent. However the James is a fairly sturdy shoe with a barbour welt and it definitely has a heavy feel to which I like. It is what I would describe as more of a british style loafer, whereas American loafers (which I am also a fan of) tend to have a lighter moccasin style construction.Although I would not opt for a dainite sole myself I think the shoe can take it.

  I was recently lucky enough to buy these Richard longwings at the bargain price of 173 pounds from a UK on-line retailer. The uppers are Wheat Cavalier. This is a waxy leather that I have not seen before. Does anyone have any tips for cleaning and maintaining cavalier leather?
Yes I couldn't help noticing those 5 eyelet Stows.   I probably own too many Trickers already but I'd love a pair of those.
