$570 vs. $510. Because of that $50 extra custom charge (+$10 for the tempest) I've been a bit bothersome to their crew to make sure the sole is exactly what I want. They must deal with crazy shoe people all day long, heaven help them. The Navy insole was at no cost, and basically because it was a free customization that just gives them a bit of a hidden flair.

I'm planning on wearing these all around the office, in the city, in nature, around the water/boats, and potentially, with suits depending on how I feel they look. FrankCowperwood pushed me over the edge with the tempest, saying that the leather on his beefrolls are a bit slippery, and that I'd be happier with the tempest. Hopefully the tempest sole will also make these last longer before needing a resole.

Is anyone currently stocking a dark green (non-kelly) Venetian make up at the moment?

We've decided to run a little weekly promotion through styleforum in regards to our Rancourt for PDG Offerings for the summer; figured we'd give you guys a window to get a good deal on something unique. so, we're offering 30% Off of these three styles of shoe for the week through Sunday night.

That is very thoughtful and generous of you.  Thank you.

Natural shell Beefroll, 9.5EE, with a request that the natural shell be as light as possible
Tempest sole, natural edging, standard threading
Navy insole, because why not smile.gif

Apparently tempests currently come with a full rubber heel, rather than the half-rubber heel shown on the website... looking forward to it.

Looking forward to pics.  Rancourt has been very accommodating IME.

That upcharge seems reasonable.  I think you'll be pleased with the tempest.  I too have asked them many ridiculous questions about custom orders, but I always drop the ticket in the end.

 

Navy insole is a nice and unique touch.  I never knew that they could do different colored insoles.  I might have to incorporate that in to my next MTO.

Just got an email that my first order from Rancourt has shipped. Going to post pics once it arrives.

You've definitely peaked my interest. Please post some pictures when you get them.

 

I'm also glad to hear about the tempest heel. Typically I like to know exactly what I am getting, but in this case I'm glad to hear it's an all rubber heel. My #8 Ranger Mocs should be shipping out tomorrow.

Actually, at the last moment, I changed my mind and went to the standard makeup. I do that a lot. The full rubber heel sounded great, but then I saw what the new tempest sole looks like (PDG had a post on here with suede chukkas that have the new one). Don't get me wrong, it looks awesome, totally perfect for rangers and boots, but now I agree that it's probably wrong for loafers. I also worried that if the leather is too thick, it might not be flexible enough for my heel to stay in, which would be disastrous. Anyway, I decided that I'm a trad at heart, and if I'm getting shell beefrolls, might as well get trad ones.

I did confirm that in future resoles, if I want to go to the tempest I can at the standard resole price. Sorry to disappoint that I won't have pics for all of you guys.

^ Is that snuff or bitter chocolate?

post #2769 of 4254

Neither, walnut Orion.

Really? the nap looks so fine I was sure it was Repello.  Would you agree it is a short/fine nap? or are the pics misleading in that sense?

 

Nice pickup!

post #2771 of 4254

Thanks! It has a fairly short nap but it's not as smooth as Repello. It's still finer than I originally expected and am pleasantly surprised.

My Ranger Mocs were supposed ship today, however I received an email instead that stated that they were a bit behind schedule due to the large number of orders they had received the last couple of weeks. The email did state however that they would be expedited and shipped to me by Monday. If this is true I would still be getting them about the same time anyway. 

 

 

I do like how they emailed me to let me know what was going on.

post #2773 of 4254

^Yes, that is quite refreshing.

Finally took pics. I was hoping to find a parking lot to keep with the theme earlier in the thread, but all you have is my driveway.

Espresso Ranger Moc, Tempest sole, contrast stich. My own laces, what they sent was 26" long and useless.

Great looking! Looks more like the mini-lug than tempest sole to me

What are the laces?
