Polo.  I just find snuff does not look as good with as many colors.  Also, old tobacco and snuff are not very un-similar, but then again, neither is polo. I just like Polo in general.  To me it's like, Polo is the color that should have been from the beginning, and snuff and tobacco never would have needed to exist. Edit:  I see that I just misread your post and you are considering Polo/Tobacco not Polo/Snuff. My answer still the same.
 I think you have to make a decision whether you want to go for variety or versatility.  I'd say go with the brown.  I would have the brown myself, if I didn't already have brown suede Alden tassels, which are easy to wear.  The green is definitely dope, but a little more daring for sure.  Its a great color/material combination.     Well said, and I echo this sentiment.  That's what I thought as well.
80191 is not a full strap.  80372 is the full strap. (I did a google search)
 They probably came up with $35 because it covers the free shipping to you and the shipping label for the return.  If so, its not so bad.  All the free shipping that doesn't turn into actual sales due to returns would probably add up and impact their bottom line.
Got these from @steveyoo1983 about 2 years ago, but just took them on their maiden voyage today.  Not pictured, matching belt (as always) also from Steve.    
I was really tempted to get these during both the first and second runs.  My collection is literally like 25% penny loafer and like 75% loafer, so I didn't.  This shot though, is the best one i'v seen of them.  I still like them as much as ever.
Pretty much what you just said  Carmina  [[SPOILER]]  Alden  [[SPOILER]]   I would not base my decision on that.  I'd just buy what style I liked aesthetically and is also practically obtainable.
Ya, def in line with OSB and Quoddy.  I'm speaking more in terms of their $495 calf boots and their bluchers than their handsewns. ...Loyalist!
I recall the issue you speak of, and I am in the same camp re the aesthetic. FWIW, the instance that I had in which this occurred was on a Blake boot, not a handsewn.
  I don't wanna be the guy who bashes Rancourt in the Rancourt Thread, but I will anyway... While I love Rancourt, I don't love them at the $350+ price point because the quality is just not there.  Granted these are shell, but you get the same stitching and other materials regardless.  While this type of thing is not a big deal, and you get it with other brands as well, I seem to see it a lot more with Rancourt.  Happened on a pair of shell Rancourts that I used to...
