    How about doing a stubby Stow sometime?

    Damn that looks nice.... but sometimes the barbour welt is not the best option, I think blind welt will work better for the stubby Stow

    A style of welting in which you cannot see the stiches from the upper.

    I don't think i've ever seen a stow with a blind welt. What about a stubby Stow with a regular flatwelt instead?

    Stow with a fat 360 degree bead of silicon chalk would be epic! The clunkier the better, eh?

    Do you think if you remove 2 eyelets from the Stow and use barbour welt it'll be too 'bottom' heavy?
    Stubby Stow is kind of in between Boots and Chukka.....

    IMHO a stubby stow size looks best in a rugged finish, like the waxy cuba. I quite like the idea of a regular stow in navy , barbour welt maybe with a contrasting tongue.

    Below is the model for the inspiration of the Burgundy longwing boot. Ours will look similar but with commando sole, burgundy suede tongue, and red calf lining.
