RANCOURT & Co. Shoes - Made in Maine - Page 107

post #1591 of 5165
Does anyone have a pair of rangers on this sole? http://taylorstitch.com/collections/shoes-by-rancourt-and-co/products/color-8-chromexcel-ranger-moc

Or has anyone seen them in any other colors being sold or flaunted on here? Interested in seeing them in other CXL shades and finding out what size you went with along with alden/rw/quoddy sizes for reference. Was kinda turned off when I emailed them and was told that sole is an extra $100 to their base price when taylor stitch is selling theirs for $60 above rancourt's website price. Make no sense of that, especially when its to my understanding that $50 plus shipping will get you a resole with any sole you want. Going by that logic it'd be cheaper to have them create a brand new shoe then send it right back to deconstruct it.

^ is that the new sole they are offering that they referred to as their "Secret new sole" on their instagram back in December?

I'm sure it's been beaten to death, went back a few pages, and stopped.

I wear a 11 in sneakers, 10 Barrie last in Aldens. Looking to pick up a pair of the Beefrool Penny Loafers in Brown CXL. Sizing reccomendations...?

Was thinking 10.5

Do you know your Brannock sizing? 10.5 does sound like a safe bet.

Not off hand. I did print the Brannock pdf off their site once before, I think i measure like a 10.5 Probably a sfae bet, figuered I'd ask in case there was another member with simialr sizing.

I measure 11d and wear Barrie 10.5e or 11d. Best Rancourt loafer size for me is 11d for a snug fit. General opinion here is to go TTS, which seems very likely to be 10.5d for you.

FWIW, I wear Barrie last in 7.5D and Rancourt 800 last in 8.5D. Both fit well.

Got to try on some Rancourt mocs in person, so I can give some feedback on fit comparisons against Quoddy and OSB mocs (all in the same stated size, 9.0D in my case).


Length: OSB and Rancourt are fairly comparable, with the Rancourts perhaps seeming to be a touch longer. Quoddy is noticeably shorter, I'd estimate at 0.5 in size shorter.

Width: Again, OSB and Rancourt are fairly comparable, with the Rancourts seeming to be a touch slimmer. Quoddy is noticeably wider, at least the equivalent of one letter width wider.

Volume: Here's where OSB and Rancourt diverge. The Rancourts are clearly meant for flat, low volume feet. It is significantly tighter across the vamp and toe box than either OSB or Quoddy, and now I can understand where the sizing difficulties in this thread come from. Anyone with a higher instep or volume foot will have trouble with Rancourts in their normal width.

If I might extrapolate a little, I'd say (using Quoddy as the benchmark): Quoddy 9.0D = OSB 8.5E = Rancourt 8.5EE

Keep in mind that I'm using a sample size of 1 for each brand, and I imagine there's more variation in handmade shoes, so YMMV. Just use this as another data point to consider, rather than gospel.

I need spring/summer to come so I can wear my new penny loafers more, winter isn't exactly loafer friendly.

I have many pair of Rancourts, but can't get my bedford chukkas to fit me right (I've had them strtched twice, but still they don't fit me right (it should be noted that I wear orthotics in my shoes, and it makes it difficult to get shoes to fit right). The chukka mocs fit me like a glove, and any money I can recoup from selling these will go towards more of them. These bedford chukkas are in black fargo (a matte leather), muleskinner (a matte brown leather) and grey mojave suede.

Check that, I am a 10.5 in the Leydon and 10 in the Barrie.

Still think I go 10.5....?

I'm sorry if I missed this but I'm thinking of buying this
http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/men-s-1/shell-cordovan/beefroll-penny-loafers-saddle-shell-cordovan.html

Can any one tell me there opinions tht own this. The fit and finish
post #1605 of 5165

I don't own that exact pair, but I have some Rancourt Shell.  It does not have the same waxy/glossy finish that Alden shell has.  The Rancourt is still very nice, just might not be what you are accustom to.
