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...
Shearling-Lined Blake Chukkas :)                  
Do I need a full resole for this or can it just go to the cobbler?  The leather soles really don't hold up walking on concrete...probably should have guessed.  
Hah...had been eyeing some clearance BB Rancourts for the past few months and they had a big price drop today...   http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Rancourt-Co.-Wool-Plaid-Penny-Loafers/MH00361,default,pd.html?dwvar_MH00361_Color=BRWN&contentpos=12&cgid=0494   $448 -> $180, free shipping from shoprunner   Also spotted these and picked them up...not indexed as Rancourt but you can see their logo in the top-down...
