post #4186 of 5207

Sounds like a marbled shell makeup would be a no go...here is the response I received from Horween

 

Thanks for the message. These shells are difficult for shoemakers because no two are alike. Finding two that complement each other (let alone match) has been unsuccessful.
 
Best Regards,
Nick Horween

Never say never! Belts are a tricky product from Rancourt. we just received a restock of our olive and natural, along with a handsome peanut suede. Parisian blue could resurface but I wouldn't expect it for a while.

A peanut suede belt sounds nice (works good with my Rancourt peanut suede boots or my Alden snuff suede). How wide is the belt and do you have any in stock in a 36? Feel free to respond via PM if you prefer.

Edit:
I look forward to wearing my belt. Thanks to PDG for the ultra-fast communication!

Nice.  Latigo has a nice casualness to it.

 

How's the fit with the wingtips?  I've been hesitant to go with those until I see some in the wild.

Thanks. Fit is ok. I mentioned this a little bit ago in the thread, but the shape of the heel cup doesn't suit my foot very well (the heel cup seems a shade shallow to me). I did buy an E width based on my Blake boot sizing, so maybe I would have been better off with a D. Kyle, @RancourtCo mentioned having a look at it with he design team.

Personal fit issue aside I think they are a great wingtip. I like be shape.

Nice, Frank. Not to throw this thread in a different direction, but who makes your jeans?

Thanks.

Jeans are Epaulet LA 14 oz grey Kurabo. They just put a few new styles of jeans up today and I think they restocked the grey too.

Big fan of them myself.

I remember the conversation here, I didn't remember it was you :).  

 

Have you seen these offered at a retailer?  I sure would like a chance to try on first (did this with my loafers from BB...and kept them, later to be modified with the RLH sole).

Wait you don't remember everything I say? Gosh I was hoping someone would. I certainly don't... rimshot.gif

Steve Alan had them at one point before they were commonly available. Seems as if they should add these to their made to fit program, although I don't think I would have noticed my fit issue without really walking around in the pair I have.

Too bad. I can understand his point. I guess it's easy enough to guess that marbled shell shoes wouldn't exactly match, but it is hard to guess just how different the shoes in a pair would look. Plenty of other good options out there fortunately.

Tried to upload a pic of my natural cordovan venetian loafers from Brooks Brothers, but the image was darker than they really appear. Will try again later.

So I saw a photo of some boots at the Capsule show that @Teger posted.

I am interested to find out more about the burgundy cap toes in the background of the pic below.

I reached out to customer service, and got nothing in reply.

I wonder if there is a direct line (email, etc) to Kyle that maybe someone could PM me.

@RancourtCo has dropped in on this thread a few times recently. Perhaps they'll see your post and give us some information, if they don't get back to you by email.
