Anyone else gearing up for this?  I may do my first handsewn MTO then...

I am contemplating a burgundy suede blake or a burgundy/snuff 5 eyelet boot

The color changes with the light a little. The first photo is at night with halogen bulbs overhead. The second is a morning shot next to my olive coffee cup. It's more brown than pictured but the iphone is doing it's thing as stated above.

What's that cool looking wooden thing in the background. Also, I thought PDG sent you two pairs of laces, and you're using neither? rotflmao.gif

Frank, laces are for Yankees.

These are wonderful mocs. I did not go down a half size and am very happy with the fit. The construction and materials are fantastic and the color is exactly what I thought it would be. As a leather items manuf. I have to say the actual sewing is outstanding. That's something I always find flawed in say Aldens or Oak Streets. I want to hire these guys!
The lining really helps the shape. The funky soles are soft and I love them. Thanks for throwing in the extra cinnamon colored laces. I gave up on quoddy after trying a few of their shoes over the years, going up and down sizes. They just never worked out. I like the rancourt last much better. Ok, ok I'll put the laces in now, Frankcowperwood.

Oh man, that wooden thing is a unique coffee table I got a deal on from this Apache guy in NM. It's slightly worm riddled wood that he decided to inlay with turquoise.

Can confirm: born a yankee, can't get enough laces.

(glad you dig the shoes!)

Is there a functional difference between a 3 eyelet moc and a 4 eyelet one? Would one be more for walking vs. the other?  One more dressy?

 

This is for a special makeup I'm kicking around. Thanks.

Hello guys - long time listener, first time caller. I really enjoy reading this thread and seeing your all's purchases.

 

I am curious if anyone has the Venetian loafers which are on the current Rancourt sale. I am tempted, but I am torn about size. I seem to be a 10 in the Baxter ranger moc and 5 eyelet boot, but a 10.5 in the pinch penny with camp sole (make up for Brooks Brothers) and somewhere in the middle on the Gilman camp moc (just got a pair of 10's, they have not stretched yet). If it maters, I would most likely be wearing the slippers with light socks.

 

Thanks in advance for any received wisdom!

I bought these a year ago to give to someone as a xmas gift, but returned them. I remember they run small, but I don't remember how small.  Like possibly so small that you want an 11.  They used to have that important sizing advice included in the product description, but I see that it is no longer included.

What is the closest rancourt equivalent to the Alden suede lhs?
post #6960 of 7479
PSA for anyone who is not on the Rancourt email list: 10% off for black Friday through Monday, and they'll have some styles on sale as well. No code yet. So sign up for the emails or look on Instagram I think.

I'd say a Repello suede pinch penny or maybe a beefroll. They used to have a lot of colors of Repello on the site, but it seems as if they've pared that down. They may still have access to those colors though.

They won't do the Repello unlined, but it is pretty soft so it might still work well. Or maybe the suede they use for the Casco loafers if there's a color you like.

Or if grey works for you go with the kudu suede. That stuff is tough, thick and floppy and they'll do it unlined. I'd get that in a second if they had it in snuff or polo or sand or something in a the brown range.

Also, FYI, @dieworkwear tried substituting Rancourt for Alden with limited success in re. floppiness.
