I have a pair of Quoddy camp mocs in pebble grain that I like. Worth a look.
I was looking into a pair of camp mocs myself but they are all usually so narrow for me. do they offer e widths or does the leather stretch out enough? I run into this problem with other loafers as well.
I have seen Quoddyy's online but haven't had a chance to try on a pair. They are a bit more expensive than the Rancourts. Do you think they are better made? Thanks.

This is the most recent pair of pants that I've made, so I included some close-ups in the spoiler:

I second the Quoddy camp mocs.
I've found that most traditionally sewn mocs, made with good leather and with handsewn lakes, stretch-out a bit very quickly. Plus, a camp moc is a blucher, meaning you have some latitude on the fit across the foot because of the lacing.
That being said, when you buy directly from Rancourt or Quoddy, you're basically buying made-to-order. Both makers offer several widths in most of their shoes, just like the old days. Check out their web sites.
Quoddy and Rancourt are equivalent in terms of the standard and philosophy of make, in my opinion. With both, it is worth checking if their specials for Ralph Lauren, Leffot, LeatherSoul, etc. are more to your liking since details vary among the models (assuming that that they carry your size.)
I'll piggyback on your post again about the Quoddys. If I recall correctly, J. Crew sells their camp mocs (not sure if they're made for J. Crew, and if so, how construction differs) for a little over $200.00.
Hey fellas, long time no post.
Italian background, 3-roll-2.
brown tweed jacket.
light blue PS.
silver tie bar.
british tan-colored khakis.
brown single monks.
Nice SC! If I may shoot: jacket seems a tad tight and short. Not a fan of the bd collar. Maybe a white linen ps would seem less match-y (bonus points: navy edges)
I have a feeling Spoo's 20K post will be memorable....

Proportions are really off. Jacket looks too small and short. Shoes look way too big. I'm hoping that's not what it really looks like and it's just camera angle.
I really like this look. I tried on a similar jacket at BB and it fit like shit unfortunately :-/
are pictures of the same jacket in different outfits... Does it still look small? Short in length? Tight at waist?
