What do folks think about the new limited camden derby that just dropped?

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Not really into it, personally.

 

For Rancourt, I stick with handsewns (on Reltex sole where appropriate).

 

Anything else and I'd turn to someone who presents a better value.

Agree, at their price point for non handsewns, I find other options more appealing aesthetically. Though it seems like the high toe shape on their boots and bluchers has been lowered a bit. That bulbous toe always made it a no-go for me.

Jumped on the Taylor Stitch longwing shell collab.  First opportunity I've had to get shell in my size (narrow) at a steep discount.  Looking forward to them showing up.

 

They extended pre-sale another 12 days if anyone is still considering.

 

Also, the they've sold a ton of the plain-toe moto boot.  Perhaps a good choice if you're searching for next season boots:

Just visited the factory last week - can confirm the blake construction shoes have come a long way since the first round, though I haven't tried on a more recent pair.

@Portland Dry Goods would love to hear more about improvements that you observed!

I didn't spend too much time with the blake shoes (you and I share an affinity for the handsewn side of things from these guys), but there is for sure more sleekness in the last or the shoe itself, compared to how the blake chukka / blake boot started.

a few things in the works for us down the road too. cant confirm anything yet but more than likely we'll be doing a kudu re-up for those of you who missed the first wave, and if we're lucky some sneakers might be in the mix for fall ... you guys sick of olive yet? smile.gif

Hi folks, new guy here looking for some advice...I've had my eye on the Rancourt line for awhile now and I'd like to finally pull the trigger on something, but I'm not sure which style to get.  I'll mostly be wearing them in a business casual setting, and since I'm on my feet for much of the day, comfort is key.  I'm leaning towards either the Baxter Ranger-moc or the Beefroll Penny Loafers.  Based on appearance and the Lactae Hevea "Aspen" outsole, I'm wondering if maybe the Ranger-moc might be more comfortable and supportive for days when I'm on my feet for long hours.  Does anybody have experience with both of these models?  Any advice would be much appreciated!

Reltex Aspen sole is awesome.  Can't go wrong with Beefroll or Ranger.  If you go Beefroll, get the one on RLH.

Ranger on the RLH Aspen sole is the most comfortable shoe I own outside of running shoes. I'm biased to that style - have three ranger mocs and counting.

I am interested in obtaining a pair of drivers. I've tried many of the high end brands (Gucci, Ferragamo, Tod's, etc.), but can't get into the European, square toe styling with many of these. After doing some googling, I found these Rancourt Westbrook Driving Mocs in cognac...

http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/men-s/american-driving-mocs/westbrook-driving-moc-14170.html

Pretty sharp and they totally scream American styling. I placed an order on 2/8 and received them yesterday (approx. 3-4 weeks for made to order shoes). They are very nice, solidly built drivers, but I am having second thoughts about the textured buffalo leather. It's too textured for my liking and thinking about exchanging them for the Westbrook Driving Moc in Roan...

http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/men-s/american-driving-mocs/westbrook-driving-moc.html

I like the nice, rich tan color. This is probably a better, all-around color to have for a driving moc. Thoughts?

I guess that's purely a matter of taste – I would prefer the bison with its unique texture, it makes the Roan look almost boring in comparison.

I have not handled the Roan personally, but (from the pictures) would expect it to be a bit stiffer than the Bison – which again is a matter of taste.

I totally agree that it is purely a matter of taste. The roan does appear to be quite bland in comparison to the bison. Plus, the roan is probably a scuff magnet and won’t take a beating like the bison. I was a little disappointed with the bison at first. I thought it would have been softer to the feel and not as shiny, though these should break in and soften up quite nicely.
