    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.

    81 and 2298 are pretty similar fit.

    DHL showed up early yesterday morning with a package from ShoeHealer.
    I must say the Eaton's more comfortable than the stows with a bit more room
    on the toe box.

    I slapped some Saphir burgundy creme to give them a reddish tint.

    I was thinking of a Stow with a dainite sole, but this MTO so would be interested in this.

    Hey all, I just received my MTO books from Richard at Shoe Healer. They are beauts (some images attached) and I was curious what I should use to treat/protect them from watermarks w/o changing the color of them. The are Acorn Antique leather. I don't plan on wearing them in the rain or snow but you never know when you might spill some liquid on them. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks!

    Just thought I'd contribute to the never-ending sizing discussion.

    Bowood in 4444 UK8.5 which I've owned for a while and fits like a glove.
    Allan in 4497 UK9 that just got in from The Bureau.

    Sized up on the 4497 and it was a mistake. While I'll keep the boot since it'll be perfect with thick wool socks for the winter, I think I should've stayed on an 8.5. This is definitely big. At least in the case of the Allan, the 4497 is definitely as generous as the 4444 in my experience.

    I suggest a neutral creme and wax to protect them from rain and what not, if you are looking to keep the color try a lighter shade creme, I believe Saphir makes a 'Tan' color, I find the light brown creme darkens the Acorn color a bit. If you do go with light brown or a tan creme apply it to the boot tongue first to see the results.

    Just a quick question, how do these fit?

    Folks say that 4444 is more generous than 4497 and even Tricker's recommends a full size down on the 4444 last.
    I own 2 pairs in 6UK on the 4497 last and the fit is flawless. I am wondering if 5.5UK on 4444 would be rather small.
    Just out of curiosity, have you measured your feet in centimeters? I happen to order my first pair of Tricker's in 6.5UK and it
    was a huge mistake. I took the good old measuring tape and got accurate sizing down.

    Hey I'll add to the confusion!

    I go half a size up in the 4497s from the 4444, but with a super thin leather insole from Pedag. Yeah.

    Additional confusion: I wear an 8UK in the 4497. I've tried both an 8 and a 7.5 in the 4444, and neither one fits.
