They look fantastic. Great shoe for shell. And you can get them a little wet... Builds character.

Awww yeah.

Those are awesome, I wouldn't mind seeing some pictures of them broken in after a few months of wear.

My Ranger Mocs had a requested ship date of 6/6. Should I plan on not seeing them until July?

Possibly. Mine was 5/21 then 6/5 and still nothing :/

What're you talking about, get your boat shoes all kinds of wet. My shell gets wet all the time, it's just fine. In fact, shell is an ideal material for boat shoes, because of how well it handles getting absolutely soaked. If you get boat shoes, no matter the material, treat them as boat shoes.

Just email their customer service and ask them if they can tell you when the new ship date will be.

FYI, I placed my order for custom made Read Boat Shoes, Tan Bulldog with red brick soles instead of the standard honey, on 05/29. Original "requested ship date" was 06/26 (had I known I would have requested them much sooner - pretty misleading if you ask me smile.gif). In an email from our friend Katie, I should see my boat shoes mid-July. Given the holiday weekend, I bet I won't see them till August.

That would put them at two months. That's a long time. But then again, waiting won't kill me. I'll just stay away from this thread till then. peepwall[1].gif

What bothers me is that Katie and I decided to wait and see how the boat shoes fit before ordering another pair. Which then starts the clock all over again. Maybe I'll go with BB or Club Monaco.

Any other retailers sell Rancourts? I know of BB and Monaco. Any more?

Thanks Frank for the pic. It helps me deal with the wait times. Shoe porn.

My was 6/5 also and got pushed back to 6/20 when I asked for the new ship date. They are extremely busy. Btw, my order was placed on 5/1.

Eastland shoes' Made in Maine shoes are pretty much all made by Rancourt.

Also Harrison Limited sells Rancourt

Ralph Lauren Made in US boat shoes are also made by Rancourt.

And Winnperry.

Just keep in mind that Rancourt will refuse to resole anything that doesn't have the Rancourt name on it.

Thanks for pointing that out. So, basically, if you want to buy them now, avoid the wait times, then for all intents and purposes they're throwaway shoes. Not cool, if you ask me. If they manufacture a product for a retailer i.e. Alden, then they should stand behind said product unless the retailer is not using Rancourts name to sell the product. I think would apply to Eastland and RLauren. No mention of Rancourt anywhere on their sites.

I don't know if it's true that they won't repair/resole shoes branded for others, but I DO know they will repair/resole Rancourt branded shoes resold by others.

They did a great job on some loafers I bought from Brooks Brothers.

Well, those of you who remember me might wonder how my order ended up. After ordering the Eastland Haspwell and Eastland Yarmouth (Rancourtx2) with overnight shipping to NYC my fathers hotel refused to accept the delivery "because the package was late". They could not explain how or why this happened to him later. Due to strict UPS policies the shoes were sent back to Gilt, and I have to wait for them to get back in stock to order them again. It's been a really frustrating debaucle.

 

Anyways, since I have some browsing time on my hands, I've started to glance at the Eastland Eastbrook instead.

 

http://www.gilt.com/brand/eastland-shoe-company/product/1056504931-eastland-made-in-maine-eastbrook-penny-loafers?

 

I really like the look of the classic Rancourt Beefroll, but I noticed this shoe is slightly different from the standard issue from Rancourt. Seems as if the sole is double stacked, and I'm wondering whether the vamp seems longer than usual or if it is just the picture that is shot at a weird angle.

 

In respect to this, do you guys think I could go wrong with the Eastbrook?  

 

EDIT: If they are the same model as these but in brown chromexcel (even the color looks a bit off), then I'm good to go. I just can't really make sense of it.
