RANCOURT & Co. Shoes - Made in Maine - Page 267

post #3991 of 5515
These were my first custom make-ups from Rancourt a bit more than 2 years ago. I've worn them sparingly but I've vowed to get much more use out of them this spring and summer.


Navy shell cordovan beefroll penny loafers

Hot damn.  Those are beautiful.

It really depends on what dress shoe/brand you're talking about.  Generally speaking, when people are talking about sizing down from somewhere, unless they specify what brand, they're talking in relation to your brannock size.

 

Dress shoes come in hundreds of brands and lasts, so one could be talking about dress shoes on an Allen Edmonds #5 last (park ave, strand, etc...which I wear in a 9) or dress shoes on an Alden Barrie last (which I wear in an 8.5).  That's why the brannock is the important measurement.

^THIS is what "patina" looks like.

 

Wonder what leather that is?  Natty CXL?

classic profile of a mismatched foot and last ... pinky-toe hanging over and beyond the welt ... but clearly comfort was not compromised as demonstrated by the amount of wear

First, those are gorgeous. But second, it looks like you have some room on the sides. My chromexcel beefrolls have a similar amount of space on the sides. Enough to where I wonder if I should have gone down a width. What do you think?

These are actually an "E" width and I have that problem anytime I wear loafers, which is one reason I wear them so sparingly. My right foot is significantly wider than my left foot and fills out the "E" width perfectly, but that means my left foot always has a bit of extra space on the sides. When I first got these, there was a bit of slipping but as they've broken in that is no longer a problem. I think if I had gone with a "D" width, my left foot would feel fine but my right foot might feel too tight. I can see how some people have a hard time with loafers fitting properly.

Those were MTO though?

You can order separate sizes and widths for each foot.

One thing I love about Rancourt is their MTO program.  It allows you to get shoes made specifically to each foot...in any style they offer!

 

See Ya,

I know they have that on their MTO web site now but it's really of such minimal bother to me that I would have never even thought to consider it back when I ordered these. These days, if I were ordering a pair through the MTO program, I would probably give it a shot with the two different sizes though.

I have an E width too in the Beefrolls and they look and sound as if they fit about how yours fit you. I'm not bothered by it at all. They are comfortable and casual.

I like these in blue!

Same separation here, or at least 10 minutes ago. Then again, I ordered these TTS. The CXL stretched probably a half size, but with tongue pads these feel like slippers.

I've had them for 6 months and the leather sole is taking a freaking beating...maybe I'll send them in for a Tempest.

I have my resoled from leather to tempest and those tempest never really broke in. they are a tad stiff on my beefroll.

I'm looking forward to swapping out the leather soles on my Beefrolls too. Maybe at the end of the summer. I might go with RLH. We'll see.
