Editor comment

There is no point in comparing the performance of these two machines as they are almost identical. In general, both the machines have great stitch quality and works well on multiple layers of denim. You can go with 5532 if you consider 9 extra stitches as important. But if you don't need those stitches, 4423 will be the better option.
