    Well, if we want the suede tongue, then it won't have a bellow tongue, right? So the 4497 would work better, wouldn't it? It would just be a plain stitched tongue like an Alden boot, right? Therefore, we would want it to be slightly smaller around the toes.

    ETA: If we do get the bellows tongue, I wouldn't mind the 4444 last either cause with thicker walking socks my Eatons fit fine, but would still prefer something slightly narrower. Love the look of the Burgundy leather, though.

    The Longwing will look very similar to the Burgundy stow but with details of the Froswick above.

    zippy thanks for the pics. I am interested in joining the MTO for this one, however have concerns about the commando soles. Think double leather would look nicer, classier imho. any thoughts ? I am not fussed about the last, though I am curious to try one in a 4497 last but its not a deal breaker. Cheers.

    Okay I think there're 2 major option here, in my opinion,
    Color: burnished burgundy
    Tongue: burgundy suede
    Natural barbour welt
    Brass eyelets

    1.
    4444 Last
    Bellowed tongue (more waterproof)
    Brown commando sole

    2.
    4497 Last
    Regular stitched tongue
    Brown dainite sole

    Thinking about functionality, if you want commando sole, then get the half bellowed tongue, for added waterproof. And if there's concern for space in your toe area after adding potential thick sole, 4444 last is the way to go. For me I'm leaning toward the option 1, but I'll do option 2 just fine, or even others...

    I have zippyh, Marcellionheart, engar, haresh, bibs, and myself in the list, let me know if there're more interest.

    We still have time to discuss and make our down payment, I'd say until next weekend.

    how much difference is there in terms of space in the toe, instep, width between the 2 lasts under consideration?

    I strongly prefer option 2
    4497 Last
    Regular stitched tongue
    Brown dainite sole

    but I'd be okay with 1.

    I've got 2 pairs of Stows with non-bellows suede tongue and to be honest, until rkusmant pointed it out I didn't even feel a difference between Stows with bellows and not.

    To me the major differences between 1 and 2 are the last and sole.
    I just prefer 4497 and dainite.

    I'm leaning towards 2 but I don't mind 1 at all. Does anyone have a picture of the 4444 and 4497 lasts next to one another so we can compare length, width, etc?

    I prefer the 4497 last, tbh, but still prefer the commando sole.
