Also, the shoes are very light and the leather very soft even with the lining.

 

That's weird, because my snuff suede boots are unlined. Maybe that applies specifically to ranger mocs, since every sample I've seen in that material seems to be lined.

Most likely you are right, maybe I just misunderstood Kyle.
My English isn't the best.

That's my configuration:
"4-eye ranger moc - Fully Lined, Snuff Suede, Dark brown camp-moc sole, antique brass eyelets, chestnut leather laces"

Don't know whether fully lined is casco lining or something else.

Size question.

I wear 44 in CP's, 11 in sneakers, typically a 10.5 in Quoddy and Alden.

Looking to order some penny loafers, I used Rancourts measuring thing and my foot measured an 11, but I am afraid of slippage. What size you guys think would be best? Thanks.

When you say Alden, what last? For reference, I wear a 10.5D (could maybe use an E) in the Alden Barrie last, and 10.5D in the Trubalance is perfect. I generally wear 11E in proper dress shoes.

I have a pair of unlined Rancourt penny loafers in 11D that fit perfectly. If they were lined, I would need an 11E. If you have a fair amount of space in the width of the Barrie or Trubalance, you could maybe go with an 11C. Otherwise, I would say 11D is good for you.

^this sounds perfect analysis for what size should you get.

if still in doubt. email kyle and provide him all the info that you just typed. Kyle seems to know their size in comparison to Alden's size.

just to chip in, I am a solid 10.5D and ordered 10.5D unlined beefroll loafer and fits me spot on. I would probably stay the same size if lined, the length is perfect the width might have very minimal space right under the ankle but i don't mind that. you can probably go back a page to see some of my pictures while wearing them.

Thanks guys.

Per Alden I have a 10.5D on the Snuff Chukka (Leydon), 10D on two differnet pair of Indy boots (Barrie Last), and a 10E Flex Chukka, went with the E since it's a little larger.

Normally I would say that I am likely a 10.5D, that is what I am leaning towards. I will probably wear thin socks with the Rancourt Loafers more often than not, but wnat the option to go sockless and not get crazy blisters.

Can someone PM me Kyle's email address? Thanks.
post #968 of 5206
The email address is on their website. I understand that they've been having some computer trouble, so let me encourage you to be patient if you write to them.

If you wear a 10 in Barrie, I think the 10.5D should be fine for you.

FYI, Rancourt has added a number of new styles and leathers to their fall 2012 collection.

Can somebody post the size guide here? I can't view it on my computer.

I wear a 10D Barrie last and 10.5 AE.  I am a 10.5 B in Rancourt.  Their venetian loafer and pinch pennies run wide.  If you wear a 10D Alden Barrie last, I would get a 10.5 B in Rancourt shoes.

 

On another note, can Rancourt make a derby buck like this one?  It's like a sawed-off blake boot.  Why not?  If they need a derby shoe tester, I volunteer.  

 

Ovadia FW12

^ So how much narrower is the B than a D (if you've tried a D as well). And, yes, I realize this isn't an easy question to answer.....

The shoe above is an oxford, not a derby. But maybe they could do a derby version of the blake boot. Would be a nice shoe.

I'm a 9D AE and took my Rancourt Venetians (From BB) in 8.5D FWIW.

Fourth pair of Rancourts just arrived. Love my pinch pennies best, so I was planning on asking Kyle for a navy shell version with the honey RLH sole since January. The more I thought about it the more I realized that I'd prefer regular hides for kicking around. Shelved the idea until I saw a Rancourt tweet showing some colorful shoes. Once the colors became available in July I knew it was time to move it forward.

- Unlined Pinch Penny
- Royal Blue Rockford, navy stitched
- Honey RLH with natural midsole and beige stitching
