Oh, and by the way, not sure why the inner lining wasn't the full way into the boot. They were new direct from RM's website in a member's only secret sale, in wheat nubuck. Never seen another pair without the full inner lining.
I've had a couple of pairs with 1/4 lining rather than the full lining. They were older pairs though. Only difference was they seemed to wear in a bit better.

Rm cutting costs? If they were made for the memebers sale I wouldn’t be surprised if they were made cheaper anyway.

Interesting. I've owned a few pairs of both standard and comfort from 2011 up to last month and those were the only ones with the 1/4 lining. Seems unusual to reward your members by giving them cut cost boots... I wonder if there's some story there, in any case they aren't doing it to the current lineup.

Theirs a chinchilla boxed I’ve not worn to round out to an even 16.

One is Barker, one Trickers kudu, one Loake and the rest are RM’s.

Had rum and black yearling Comfort Craftsman pairs arrive today, $500 each Australian ($345 USD) and as a result of this thread had a look at the insoles.

The rum has the white edged insole and is stamped 3/19 while the black has the blue edged insole and is stamped 2/19. And again my 5/19 havana suedes have blue as well. So it seems probably Feb/Mar around that time they transitioned to the blue edge but wearing two identical new pairs with the two colours they are indistinguishable in comfort, the blue isn't better it's just a slight manufacturing change.
