post #61 of 5249
like i have previously stated, I believe it's the best to call Kyle if you have doubts in sizing. I was confused when I saw the size-down recommendation and I called, problem solved! hope that helps.smile.gif

cuz im a 9 brannock and take 8.5 barrie which means i should go 8.5 rancourt no?
plus since i plan on wearing these sockless, dont they stretch?
probably overthinking this but this is SF so you know smile.gif

FWIW, Kyle at Rancourt told me I should stick with the same size as my Alden LHS on the Van last which are a 8.5D. Hope this helps.

Considering picking up the Ranger Moc in Khaki Suede:

350

Any thoughts on this shoe? And more specifically on the Lactae Hevea rubber soles? I would really like to have the plantation crepe soles that Alden uses, and this sole seems to somewhat approximate that aesthetically, if not materially. I would like a mildly firm sole, and nothing too flexy or flimsy.

Perhaps the Vibram cristy wedge sole would be the better option for a slightly stiffer sole:

I want to get the pinch penny loafer but in a color similar to Allen Edmond Walnut/Chili , Kyle suggested sticking to Chromexcel as it's softer and more appropriate for that shoe. One other option he offered me was this wheat cavalier cxl color, any one have experience with something more of a red/orange tone to it like cognac/tan?

Interesting. This looks like the CXL that Alden sells as "natural". I've seen very red or very orange CXL in the past. They are very bright, but I'm sure there is alot of lot-to-lot variation.

Is that the Plainsman Brown CXL, as offered on a Beefroll penny loafer in their shop, as well as these ranger mocs at Standard Goods?

Those ranger mocs look lighter to me, this sample is actually 'Wheat Cavalier CXL'

I'm looking for more of a burned orange not quite bright, a lot of other companies call it 'cognac'

Sorry, I wasn't sure if Wheat Cavalier was a description, or the actual name. Looks like it's the latter.

This isn't helpful for the color, but there was a post on the Horween blog on Cavalier Chromexcel.

This looks very nice, but the color looks different to the patch a little darker, does Trickers use Horween?

 

I found another link for it, color does look quite nice

www.fransboonestore.com/en/trickers-x-fransboone-wheat-cavalier-brogue-boots.html

 

Another color that I found and really like is whiskey cavalier, quoddy has it , waiting to hear from Kyle and see if they have any other options.

 

It would have been nice if Horween listed all it's colors on it's website. The blog entry doesn't mention them either.

This pic of the navy shell boots was posted on the Rancourt Facebook page, and I thought I would share it here. The photo is a bit tough to see, but these look great.

Yes, but not for everything they make. Their cordovan is from Comipel.
