(Not in a bad way, it's just obviously a harder-wearing material). But I can't say enough good things about the suede on the pair in that photo.

I'll be posting the khaki pair when I get them back from Rancourt--there was an error in the stitching, which of course they're promptly addressing.

Disclaimer: I'm about ten minutes into an Ambien, and there's every possibility that I'll wake tomorrow and my entire reply is in Spanish. In which case, vaya con Dios.

Thanks for the response!

 

I look forward to seeing the khaki.

 

It has been said before, but it would be nice if Rancourt had information somewhere about which materials are available in what colors.

does Rancourt have an existing coupon code? I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on their CXL belt but it'd be nice to get a small discount, not that it'll keep me from buying

Would anyone mind helping me figure out sizing? Im looking to order a brown CXL ranger moc with the honey aspen sole. I wear a 9-9.5 in nikes, 8.5 in Clarks DB and an 8 in Chucks. Can anyone recommend me a size smile.gif

Thanks.

Do you live somewhere you can order the made to fit program? This would be the best way to determine your size

My desert boots are US 8, my Rancourts for Polo are US 8.

For reference:
Brannock = 8.5
Barrie = US 8
Tru Balance = US 8
AE 5 Last = US 8.5
Carmina Forest = UK 7.5
Marlow =7.5 (could be 8)
Sperry = US 8.5/9

have you tried the printable fit guide?

Do not try the printable fit guide. Do the made to fit program.

Do you get to pick the shoes they send you via made to fit? Fit is going to be a lot different between boat shoe, loafer, boot, etc. 

 

I'm interested in trying the Gilman Camp-moc (unlined CXL). I'm 11C on Brannock and my last pair of boat shoes were 10.5 Sperry Topsiders. Thinking about 10.5B to accommodate stretch and the fact that I'll be wearing them without socks.

and also a bunch of Edward Green and Italian RL shoes

Nope. They send you a pair of Venetian loafers, but that's the same last they use for all of the handsewn loafers, I believe.

How have others found the sizing guide? Most of the reports I've read in this thread have been that it doesn't work well. Still, that might be a vocal minority (?). Seems strange that it would be inaccurate.

Anyone have the Aspen sole? (Or any RLH for that matter?)  Is it F'ing awesome walking on natural latex?  or is it just kind of cool?

 

Am considering the Aspen for a future make-up, but am kind of turned off by the midsole that it requires.  Just trying to determine if the added comfort is worth the tradeoff in appearance.

 

Otherwise I'll probably go camp sole.

I sent in my rangers for a resole in the ALH sole. Will report in when I get them back.

Personally I'm a big fan of the RLH. Don't have the Aspen, though I'm looking for an excuse to get something on it. Those suede Ranger Mocs the have are very tempting.

I do think it is more comfortable than a camp sole (also have that), though I consider the camp sole to be surprisingly comfortable. There's a sort of bounce to the RLH that you don't get with the harder rubber.
