I went with the same size as my Strands for Ranger Mocs and loafers. I don't have any experience with their boat shoes, though.

Sounds like it's going to be at least another month or two until the customization tool is up online.

I'm debating between a black chromexcel bedford chukka or a black buckaroo langdon boot, both with a black RLH sole, but it's hard envisioning what they'll actually come out looking like. I like the idea of a chukka, but I'm thinking black may work better on the langdon boot.

I think either would look nice but I would go black CXL on the Langdon

Anybody know what kind of leather is this Rancourt & Co Beef Roll Penny Loafers?  Is it Horween Chomerxcel? or just burnish horween leather?  Please advise.

Somehow the finish looks little different than CXL.  I wonder if it is Horween burnish leather.  Any Horween expert can offer some advices?  

 

Example of Dark Olive CXL. I hope it helps.

Does anyone here have the RLH Ranger sole shown here http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/hamilton-boot-dark-brown-bulldog.html

I am thinking this sole could be really cool on the #8 CXL Langdon Boot I am thinking about. Kind of a cross between the mini lug Vibram and the RLH

Oak St. Trench, Wolverine 1K and Redwing 9011/Beckman

 

 

 

 

 

I know this is off-topic for Rancourt, but how did you size in the OSB Trench boot?  TTS or a half size down?  What would you recommend?

Which of the three boots is best for walking? Four, if we include rancourt?

Anybody has experience with Rancourt's Blake Chukka?  How does it fit and how comfortable is it compared to the Alden's or AE's?

I bought and returned a pair of those last summer.
Beware on the fit of those. I've got a couple pairs of Rancourt for Ralph Lauren beef rolls so I ordered the same size.
These BB ones fit about half a size smaller.

The leather was really stiff and had a kind of fuzzy finish.

Yeah, that's certainly an option. What I had in mind for the Langdon boot was something entirely black and it looks like the black chromexcel is only dyed on the surface so you'd have some tan peaking through at the edges.

Scratch what I said about not being sure how a black chromexcel chukka would turn out, however. I've been playing around with Photoshop and came up with this rough approximation of what it would look like on the RLH sole.

Argh! Planning my purchases for Spring and it's driving me crazy.

 

I want to get some of the Venetians in Brown CXL, but not on the super-thin leather soul. I'm trying to decide if the RLH sole will look too clunky on them? Thoughts? The other option is the siped camp sole in honey. 

 

I'm also torn on a 2nd shoe to get... Not because I can't pick one but because it's tough to pick ONLY one... I had been thinking about a ranger moc in peanut suede... or green shell... or latigo / other pebble grain... 

 

But now I'm thinking about a #8 shell beefroll penny loafer... I want to get a RLH sole on one pair, but I'm not sure which. I'm not sure the RLH would go with a #8 shell penny loafer, so I could go with a CXL penny or back to the ranger moc choices... 

 

Does anyone know what last they send if you do the Made to Fit program? I usually wear a 10 in most things (10D Alden Barrie last, 10D AE 5 last, 9UK in Alfred Sargent) but I just got 9.5E in White's boots and they fit well. I've got the Eastland Made in Maine olive CXL size 9.5D that were a bit tight at first but loosened up to fit well.  I'm not sure shell would do that, and I'm not sure which lasts they put on which shoes by default, so I was thinking of trying their fit test shoes for a 9.5E.

Rancourt makes Eastland Made in Maine for them. So there's your answer right there. Shell won't stretch quite as much as CXL, but it will still stretch a bit.

I like this post!smile.gif

All the following opinions are simply what I'd do if I were ordering the shoes:

Venetian: Honey sipped camp sole.

Ranger moc should look great in peanut suede (really like how that looks online) or the latigo, I think. I'd like something in both of those, but would then have find extra feet to wear them... shog[1].gif Both should be sturdy for that shoe. Own the green shell, of course, and love it. So that is a tough one.

I think RLH with #8 shell would be an interesting casual look. Definitely different for a shell loafer, but workable.

Interesting that you wear .5 size smaller in Eastland than in AE 5 and Alden. I'd think you'd wear .5 larger, but if you have the shoes and they fit, then that's that.

CXL is definitely going to give some, particularly if it is unlined. My feeling is that unlined shell has some give too. Lined it does not.

Trying to keep myself from placing a Rancourt order... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
