Would a half size down be a better idea?

That's odd. I measured my foot using the same sizing chart but I also added my width measurements and diameter of my foot. I got a perfect fitting boat shoe. Maybe they make the camp moc on a different last which accounts for the extra room? In looking at the measurements I sent in, it would be hard for Rancourt to get it wrong. A thumbs width is over an inch, at least my thumb is.

Where exactly in the toe box is this extra space?

I would say the space is slightly less than an inch. It's between the tips of my toes and the end of the shoe. Meaning that if I were to wear the shoe normally, I can depress down that empty space in the top of the shoe, past my toes.

I just picked up a pair of Eastland MIM Milo Deck Shoes in Natural from East Dane. They were $350, marked down to $210.

Just thought I'd post this in case anyone is interested. They carry a few models from the Made in Maine Collection.

The Leffot shell venetians, though, are the same makeup you can buy at the same discount through Brooks Brothers. But with BB, they are Rancourt branded, so you can have Rancourt resole them. Leffot's are not, and Rancourt will not resole non-Rancourt branded makeups. Silly I know, and maybe they'd make an exception for something like Leffot-shells, but can't count on it.

Moral of the story is that if you want those venetians in natural or #8 shell, get them from Brooks Brothers not from Leffot.

^the strange thing I find is that though the foot bed of the shoes are labeled Leffot, but the bottom of the shoes are actually labeled Rancourt.

Belts have arrived!  I'm not sure what the best way is to photograph a belt, but here goes . . . 

 

 

green shell, navy shell, Color 8 CXL

 

Love them all.  One mild surprise is that the shell belts are made of three pieces rather than two - not what I was expecting but I'm OK with it.  Also, as the pic shows, the pieces of shell are different lengths between the belts, which again is interesting but perfectly fine.  And, the Color 8 is redder than I was anticipating - but that's all for the better IMO.

Anyone have personal experience on how stretchy the Buckaroo leather is?  Compared to CXL?

 

Would the EE shoes stretch out enough to accommodate a EEE/EEE foot?

Congrats on the belts.  I guess it's impossible to source a 1-piece belt that would fit a "normal" sized waist. Unless you're going after Clydesdale horse butt.

Virtually *all* shell belts are made in three pieces, as an individual shell isn't long enough for a full-length belt. However, Horween does *occasionally* get horses that have bridged shells, that is, the two shells on the horse are connected by a small strip of shell. 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.
