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. They cost me $260 each ($235 plus $25 for the reltex malaise soles), but I'll let them go for $150 each. That seems fair. They've each been worn less than five times each.

Can any one tell me there opinions tht own this. The fit and finish

Well I think I am going pull the trigger. I like the Alden's but they seem more dressy then what I want. What I want is a pair I can dress way down to no socks all the way to slacks and nice button down for dinner.

I think you'll like the Rancourts then. Much more casual than the Alden LHS, particularly with the beefroll stitching. I have a pair of the shell in #8 and they become slipper-like very quickly as you break them in. The construction quality is excellent, in my opinion. The leather sole on Rancourts wears differently than an Alden sole, though, since the construction is different. I've also found it to be a little slick.You might consider the Tempest sole for more traction while still keeping the leather sole look. No personal experience with this.

Here's a photo of the #8 beefrolls after some wear.

I sent in a email with a request to do tempest sole... I wonder if it will make it much stiffer. I like the idea of them breaking in to a slipper like feel
post #1612 of 4975
That's an interesting question. I think the feel after break in has a lot to do with the hand sewn, unlined construction. Shell is really a very supple yet tough leather when unlined.

Well the sole change jumps the price to 560 not to bad but now to decide what I really want as a sole
post #1614 of 4975

I love the commando style sole shown on this Ranger Moc. I would consider this sole as well. If you put your mouse over the shoe it will reveal the sole...

Just worried the commando sole would change the sleek look of it
post #1616 of 4975

Well, it's not that sleek to begin with.  And the commando sole is pretty low profile.  You really don't notice it much.

On that page the Tempest sole really doesn't look much sleeker than the commando...

post #1618 of 4975
Well I like the commando sole just not sure on a penny loafer. Though you guys might be right
post #1619 of 4975

Depends on the look you want.  For the loafer a single leather or RLH sole are both nice.  Single leather is classic.

Ok I am now going to have to sound stupid but what is a rhl sole
