I will post pics today comparing the color to Whiskey and Ravello....

Here is what they originally looked like....

Those have aged beautifully. 

 

RL has a bunch of nice looking loafers that are Rancourt made (99.9% sure) like these in blue pebble grain:

These in tan grain:

I really like the design of these with the beef roll plus the full strap:

and the ropes on these are cool:

Hi everybody,

 

FedEx just brought me my new summer shoes. Navy-coloured Boat Chukkas that Rancourt made for Brooks Brothers:

 

 

I've been lurking on this forum and on the Rancourt website for a while now. This is my first pair of handsewn shoes. I was nervous about the sizing as there would have been no sensible way of returning them all the way from Germany to the US. These were on sale 50% off and the only pair left was exactly my usual size – 13D. So I took the risk and just ordered them.

I loved them from the moment I opened the box. The leather is thick and supple and feels just beautiful (there was no exact description, but I guess this is navy Chromexcel), and both sides fit like the proverbial pair of gloves, which is surprising because I have large feet with narrow heel and a significant length difference between left and right. So now I know what size to order – I have a feeling this will not be may last pair;-)

 

Thanks for letting me share,

 

Bernhard

My debate is color.  Caramel or Espresso.  For me, navy is too casual to spend that kind of money.  Can't wear anything but a grey suit with navy shoes and even then it's a bit of a statement.  I wish Rancourt had more pictures on their site of different combinations.  

 

 

 

Does Rancourt make Sid Mashburn's made in Maine shoes?  Any one know?  Anyone have a pair?  I think the higher vamp would be a good thing for my foot, but would really like to try a pair first.  

 

I love how these look as well. I am seriously consider the Hamilton boot (captoe version of the Blake) in this color. I am back and forth between the navy and dark green cordovan but am drawn towards the navy lately...

This is a great looking style. Something a little different but still clearly a classic handsewn Maine shoe. Enjoy!

I think Navy would be more versatile and would really pop in the boot you want.

decisions, decisions... I have a few pairs of navy already but both are CXL. I think you are right though that the navy would really pop. I am going to give it a few months (if I can resist) to see what other styles or options are available

I too am waiting to see if they come out with a perforated cap toe.  I might go for that in either navy or green also.

Navy shell captoe with full leather midsole, natural edge trim and a leather sole?
