I guess another way to find out my size would be to ask @rydenfan and @tifosi what size they wear in the Rancourt beefrolls and just size down .5

If this is of any help, I went with my Brannock size. As reported before, mine were pretty snug (not uncomfortable though) for the first few weeks but loosened up after 10+ wears.

Very helpful, the more info I gather, the more it points to me getting a size 8. Thanks for your input!

Just to really screw you up...I have 8's in my fist loafer and they stretched to the point of almost being to big. I made the mistake of going to 7.5E on my second ones and they are not that comfortable. I would sell them put probably not worth my time for what I would get for them.

Hmmmmm lol, unlined CXL problems. Seems a lot of the time they just stretch out too much in loafers. Maybe I should stick to cordovan everything, including loafers and boats shoes.

The Calico suedes don't stretch much either in my experience! CXL will only stretch as much as you push it, I find. Which means you can *never* wear CXL with thick socks, unless you plan on wearing it always with thick socks. My rangers are much too big to be worn in the summer now, because of the socks.

Belly, how's Rancourt chukka? I've got two in brown and olive (tan) from the recent CM sale without having seen them in the wild. Would you mind throwing a quick review?

I'd like to know as well as I have a couple of the brown chukka in different sizes in transit.

They are both comfortable right out of the box but could take 1 or 2 wears to break them in.

The moc toe is heavier than I expected due to the thick crepe sole. It also has better cushion insole compared to the round toe chukka. The moc toe is also more comfortable for my flat feet.

The round toe has a high toe box. As a result of that, it has more of a round toe boots profile than what I come to expect from a 'chukka' or desert boots.

Construction and material wise, they are solid and top notch.

Fit: They fit TTS in my case.

Value: 10/10

Overall verdict: 8/10 (mainly because I wished the round toe has a lower profile toe box.)

Hope this give you a general idea....

In my experience, TTS works. I've got 5 or 6 pair in different styles now and they are all size 8 with no problems.
