They harvest those for very, very rare full-length belts and sell them directly on horween.bigcartel.com with the going price being $425 per belt, the last time they came up for sale almost a year ago.
I thought most were 2 pieces. I think that's what 1/8th was expecting.

Yep, I was expecting two, but like I said, I'm OK with three.  I've seen the one-pieces too, but I wasn't going to wait for months and months for the chance to spend that kind of coin on something that might or might not be in a color that I need . . .

Shell belt I have from Rancourt is three pieces. I'm actually impressed with the care taken in the joining. It's really a nice piece of work IMO and more than OK with it. May eventually be in for another.

Wearing the CXL belt today . . . BTW, to anyone who might be interested in ordering one, I can report that they're on the large side.  I'm an odd size and I rounded up, but I might have been a little better off rounding down.

Just order a pair of beefroll in suede from Club Monaco. Curious if the sude stretches out like the CXL beefroll
post #4913 of 5236
Shouldn't stretch as much as CXL. What color did you get?
post #4914 of 5236
the light beige, i got it from the .CA website, for once the Canadians lucked. Figure it be a nice summer shoe. I have the 8.5 in the CXL and it stretched out like crazy around the back heel, so for these ones I ordered the 8.5 / 8.0.

Well, I've had my Eastland Made In Maine 3-eye Milos for about a week. And to be honest, I like them better than my Tan Bulldog Rancourts. I find the leather to be of better quality and the look of the brown mid-sole really makes the shoe. And the three eyelet design gives the shoe a different look. Now, if I am not mistaken, I believe Rancourt makes the MIM collection for Eastland (at least that's what I read on Reddit when Kyle did a Q&A). I won't be able to have Rancourt resole them, but I am sure I can find someone who will when the time comes.

I would suggest heading over to East Dane to have a look. Oh, and BTW, as I refuse to keep $300 shoes on a shelf in my closet, I've decided to sell the Tan Bulldogs. Their on eBay, but if anyone wants them, I'd let 'em go cheap. They are a 10 1/2D, but would also fit a 10D. I've got pictures up in this thread.

I believe that Eastland also outsources to Highland.

BTW if anybody needs a proxy for any racnourt at CM.ca website please message me. I won't be charging anything - all i ask in return is you return the favour if I ever need you to proxy me something. I have a US mailbox, so majority of the time I order stuff to the mailbox with my Canadian CC. But sometimes stores won't accept my CC.
Just pay for the item, plus the taxes and shipping to you (not sure how much this will cost).

My new Ranger mocs arrived yesterday (ordered online June 5). Nothing exotic this time around, just looking forward to some good summer leisure/adventure in these.
So far so good!
