With the Rancourt Court Classics and other similar styles from other companies (epaulet, etc.), it would no doubt be a hard sell at $300.

 

The Dublin is pretty spectacular, of course, and the Gustin Natural CXL sneakers look great, too.

Yes, some of the high end leathers are really beautiful.  But I think I'm going to limit my purchases to only lined and padded variants because my opinion is that this is how a nice sneaker should be constructed, and I really like the construction of my blue lows.  So I'll wait and watch for nice outer leathers with lining.

 

Meanwhile I snoozed and missed the grey nubuck highs.  Doh!

From Rancourts FAQ:


Q: What is the difference between a lined and unlined pair of shoes?

A: When we use the term lining, we are referring to a leather lining that is attached to the inside of the upper leather before the shoes are lasted. Lined shoes generally retain their shape better than unlined shoes and thus are more durable. They are also marginally warmer in colder weather. They can be stiffer and less forgiving than unlined shoes.

Unlined shoes are a single layer of leather that forms the upper of the shoes. Unlined shoes are typically reserved for very casual shoes. They will form to your feet very quickly and are more breathable than lined shoes. Unlined shoes are preferred for sockless wear.

The sizing of a shoe does not change if the shoes are lined or unlined. Yes, an unlined shoe is more pliable and will stretch more but the initial volume of the shoes remains the same whether they are lined or unlined.


As far as my Gustin Horween hightops, they're pretty stiff and unlike say, Converse All Stars these hold their shape, but we will see as I break them in with more wear. I'd imagine that the Gustin's would also get pretty hot if they were lined.

#8 boots are back for the people who were asking about them.  Just keep them away from your brake pedal...

Ouch... that just hurts to look at!  Color 8 polish to cover it up?

 

Been on a buying freeze, but the #80 BlackXWhite Canvas chinos look pretty cool.  Anyone here own a pair?

Used a combination of saphir repair cream in bordeaux and polish.  But the gash was quite deep so the texture is still quite visible.  I guess I just have to embrace the extra "character" they have now.
 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Note to people considering buying these, the color really does look much better in person.  The camera significantly dulls them down.

 

As for the chinos, I am also in a spending freeze (changing jobs at the moment), but would also like to see those in the wild.  I think it could be a cool makeup.

They look surprisingly brown in those photos.  Do they look more reddish in person?

Yes.  I'd say they're not quite as red as the Gustin photos show, but those are definitely more representative of the real color than my pictures.  Obviously a lot also depends on lighting, so under natural light you will see more depth of red vs. under fluorescent lighting they look more flat and brown.

Here are some #8 boots shots with the grey shadow denim. Photos really don't do them justice.

One blown out in direct sun


And another in the shadow

I received my Olive shorts yesterday - they feel and look fantastic.  I can't post a fit picture because it would probably get me banned.  I am barely able to zip and button them - they are really on the small side.  I was expecting a very comfortable fit based on the sizing chart and have initiated a return. I am going to size up if they are still available, off to check now.

post #9881 of 10351

Uh oh...

 

Well, mine will be here tomorrow, I believe. I will chime in after trying them on.

I think that was some concern from the stock photos that they were very slim fit, but nice to hear that the quality was good. 

 

I just noticed this in the shorts description: *Note: if you're in-between sizes or prefer a more relaxed fit, we recommend sizing up one.*

i got the khaki shorts.  they are nicely made but the material is thinner than i expected.  the fit is certainly slim but not overly tight (my opinion).

 

i think they measure smaller than the size chart.  I will compare mine tonight for sure.  I got them in a 32 which should have left me a half inch or so of breathing room but mine are definitely tight in the waist.  i considered exchanging them but decided to keep them.  i wore them once and their stretched out a little bit.  not uncomfortable but still snug.

They looked thin in the initial pictures and I passed on them for that reason.

Thin isn't bad for summer shorts, as long as the weave and stitching hold up.
