D'oh should read 'or Jimmy boots as Tricker's now call them'.
Stubby Stows of Jimmy boots as Tricker's now call them, in brown cavalier leather with an orange dainite sole. These were a recent MTO from The Shoe Healer.    
The brown derby is v similar (although not exactly the same) to the Kendall and Woodstock styles produced by Trickers. Those are on the 4497 last.
  Here's one of the more unusual Tricker's styles my Giacobbie loafers. They are similar to the James loafer but are on the 5117 last with a higher toe and a chunky double leather sole. These are like loafers on steroids. Probably not for everyone but I love them. These are in marron calf.
It's a misspelling and should read 'slimmer sole' as they have a single leather sole rather than a double one. The volume in the uppers will not be affected, so they should fit you fine if this is the size you normally take.
Yes those short stows look great in that combination. I'm hoping to take delivery of a similar pair in the next couple of weeks from a Shoehealer MTO, but those will be in dark brown with orange dainite.
The second number is the model or style of boot / shoe. I think the number for the Ripon boot is 9047G which is what your boot looks like.   Not sure about the first number but it could refer to the type of leather and colour.
Just read Zippy's rept to the 2298 vs 4497 question, which gives different advice to mine. As Zippy says if you wear a different thickness of sock you may be ok. I still think the difference is less than half a size but with Trickers there's always an element of 'trial and error' and the shape of your foot / instep will certainly be a factor.
The w2298 and 4497 are quite similar. The 4497 probably comes up slightly larger but not as much as half a size so I suspect you would find a UK 8 a bit too large.
The Malton and the stow are basically the same boot, but the Malton normally comes in Tricker's signature colour of C Shade and is also available in 6 fitting. It is made of gorse leather which is slightly thicker than the leather on Stows and very weather resistant.
