Might want to consider this BB makeup for adding structure to the toe while keeping it unlined: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Rugged-Leather-Boots/MH00452_____BRWN_09H__D___,default,pd.html?cmp=ppc_us_GG_pla_MensShoes&gclid=Cj0KEQjwyK-vBRCp4cymxermx-EBEiQATOQgh3QzQpVUluEMwflcnPf2dxDAA2z2Q9xanG_7F9MRMbcaAguZ8P8HAQ
 Quite excited to see how this turns out.
Not sure what you mean.  But does this help clarify?       I think those stitches along the eventual crease are to protect the shoe when I do things like this:     Can't say I've ever done anything like that, but hopefully the shoes will inspire me to try it out ;)
 Happy to oblige.  Anything in particular?  I'm not an expert photographer, but here's a few tries. Only other time I've seen this sole is on the BB canvas boat shoe: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Rancourt-Co.-Waxed-Canvas-Boat-Shoes/MH00429,default,pd.html Big fan of it over the Amazonas soles. Grippy and I don't feel every pebble under my feet.  I don't have any RLH soles though, so maybe I'm still missing out.          
 Where did you find these?  I like to keep bookmarks of all the stockists doing weird things ;)
Just picked these up from the new One Orange shop on Beacon Hill in Boston.  I'm pretty happy with them - I've been trying to decide on a more sneaker-like Rancourt and was debating between these and the 4-eye 1967.     http://oneorange.com/c-a-hudnut-x-rancourt-sailing-shoe/      
I'm I'm 10.5B in AE Park Avenue with thin socks, what size would you guess for rancourt sockless?   (I've been shoving my foot in 9/9.5D all these years.  Oops)
 A week ago, maybe, but isn't this a good start to what you're looking for? http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/1967-collection/1967-4-eye-blucher.html
I feel like my left shoe poses a bigger threat to my right shoe than most other environmental factors.   The shearling lined chukkas were custom MTO.  Someone here did a color 8 handsewn with shearling that served as inspiration.   I've transitioned to exclusively wearing Rancourt except for running shoes.  I tend to like BB makeups and I'm pretty good at shopping the sales there.  For something more unique I love that their MTOs have pretty small markup.   I think...
