After several months with the Argon, I can say I'm not thrilled. The fit and feel is great, but its too dark. I thought it'd slightly lighten up, but it has in fact darkened since I bought it. Here are some pics:    
How do you like the crepe sole on the rangers? I have rangers with camp moc sole but I'm considering getting crepe. My fear is that they will not be as comfortable because of the hard leather midsole. What are you opinions?
Having the dark brown buckaroo ranger moc on camp moc sole and having brown CXL pinch penny loafers also on camp moc sole, what would you suggest for my next pair of Rancourt? It must be #8 CXL and have camp moc sole. It will be a casual everyday shoe to wear around campus and the city, etc. I'm torn between the camp moc and the beefroll penny loafer. What would you suggest? I typically dress in either dark denim, khaki chinos, or brown cords with OCBD shirts and sweaters....
Can anyone explain the differences between CXL and Cordovan? I'm now thinking about getting these and I'm not sure what is the better option, CXL or Cordovan. Which is more durable and will last longer? I'd either do brown CXL or Espresso Cordovan. Also, what are the positives and negatives of getting them lined v. unlined?   Espresso Shell Cordovan with tan lining and black camp moc sole:   Brown CXL with Tan lining and camp moc sole:
Those are not camp mocs. they are ranger mocs.
 Certainly this would be biased. I guess I was looking for enthusiasm regarding why Rancourt camp mocs are so much better than LLB camps mocs. Also, to those that asked why I think CXL is not as durable is because on my 3 months old pinch penny loafers the leather feels thinner and more pliable. After 1 week of wear I have very noticable creases and marks where my toe is which I do not have on my year old LLBean mocs.
 Navy. It breaks is/patinas much better than black will.
 Thanks for the help. Money isnt really an issue considering I have two pairs of Crockett and Jones and 3 pairs of AE. I was strictly looking for the difference between Rancourt and LLB camp mocs. I love the leather on my ranger mocs and pinch pennys, however, I fear the chromexcel leather is softer and wont wear as well as the LLB leather. You seem to disagree. I may order a pair just to see. Hopefully it'll be far and away better. Thanks for your help!
Can anyone compare the Rancourt camp mocs to the LL Bean camp mocs? I love my LL Bean camp mocs so much that I'm thinking about buying a pair Rancourts, however, I'm not sure if it is worth more than double the price. For reference I have the Ranger Mocs and the Pinch Penny loafers, both of which I really like.
 Yes, I found this originally at the Georgetown store but found out that both NYC stores have it also. I ordered it online from Countryattire though because it saved me about $100. This jacket is also made in Olive for a more classic look. Great jacket though.
