Here's my latest- Lollipop Red Bourton Brogue from End, 4444 last.

There is not nearly as large a difference between the 4444 and the 4497 as I had expected based on comments here. The 4444 bourtons seem perhaps just a little looser in the heel and a little stubbier in the toe, but nothing dramatic.
Total time for the order was 10 days (4 days before shipment Mon-Thu, 6 transport including 1 day in customs). I had to print, fill out, scan, and email a customs form and later got a $31 customs bill via paper mail.
I ordered the same longwings in snuff. I was surprised how big the 4497 last runs. They're beautiful but too big for me. I hope your pair works out better. I like the double crepe sole, while it is heavier, it is extremely comfortable.
