    are the Stow and the Keswick built on the same last? I am an 8D in the Alden Barrie last and trying to figure out my sizing for these two styles. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Stow is typically on 4497.

    Keswick/Bowood/Bourton are on the 4444.
    They're all more or less the same style, just multiple names.

    Zippy,

    Thanks so much. Do these two lasts fit the same or differently?

    They both fit fairly generous.
    The 4444 fits even bigger than 4497.

    Start with a damp cloth and wet that area to extract any alocohol left behind - allow plenty of drying time. Next some renovateur or similar product - this will (should) give you some colour gradient around the spot. Next use some heavily dyed polish/cream (kiwi make a 'renovator' which is ideal) focussing on the area, use small amounts of polish and brush heavily between applications (leave the polish to dry for a good 20 mins). Once the spot is as blended as you like, give your whole shoe a polish as you would normally.

    Hello, this is a great thread. Would any of you mind posting some pics of the Stow being worn? I'm considering ordering some but can't seem to find many pics of how they look on the leg (profie, front view, etc.). Many thanks in advance.

    Got my Bureau Belfast Trickers Keswick this week, very nice shoes and I replaced the laces with dark brown to match the sole.

    But got to say, Bureau Belfast offers no service in terms of questions and answers, I sent them 2 emails about fit, no answer; and 2 emails about them sending out the wrong pair of laces, they are supposed to include a pair of yellow/brown laces, none included, and again, no answer.

    Luckily, at least their private Tricker's line is nice. Keswick Acorn Fitting 5, Commando sole.

    Weird. My experience with them was massively satisfactory. E-mails were replied to swiftly and cordially. Must've cought them on a bad day...
