    Yeah, there are a lot of surprise rebrandings, if you know what a Rancourt really looks like. I bought a pair of Allen Edmonds calfskin loafers on eBay, almost new, about $40. Thought they looked great, but didn't really look like AE, the sole stitching was too wide, and instead of a solid insole it had a half insole. Then the other day, I saw the identical loafer, except it was branded Rancourt, and it just clicked. Of course, AE used to own Rancourt, before they bought themselves back. So I don't know if my pair is old AE at their factory or new Rancourt branded for AE. Either way, made a great pair of shoes just feel a bit better.

    Rancourt's rule of thumb for Blake is +.5 from their hand-sewn shoes. (AKA, TTS)

    A bunch of Rancs at Nieman Marcus (Eastland Made in Maine) got a second markdown at the Houston Galleria.

    Might be some in your town. Reduced to $132-$177.

    Just ordered the 4-Eyelet Ranger Moc - Color 8 Shell Cordovan.


    The only modification I made was to order it with the full leather lining.

    Love the Clymers on blue. How do you like the sole? I've been eying those #8 ranger mocs for a while now. They will be a great pair. On my to buy list one of these days.

    Thank you sir. I think it's a good look, and very comfortable. The only thing I worry about is how badly it will look when they get dirty. But then again, I can always clean the side of the sole when necessary.


    I've been looking at getting the cordovan ranger mocs for a number of months myself. I figured it was about time I pulled the trigger.

    Those ranger mocs are going to look so good as they age. What's holding me back is the concern that I wouldn't wear em enough right now to get to that look.

    You'll never know for sure unless you get them.


    I get the feeling you would wear them more than you think.[​IMG]

    They are in the future for me too. What's holding me back is my wonderful pair of brown CXL that I just can't get rid of, or pretend like I'd rotate.

    That's actually why I got the Blue CXL first, I figured I would eventually get the #8 cordovan.

    About to pull the trigger on a suede tassel loafer from RL (Similar to Baldwin) but worried of them being only available in D width, do these run narrow,normal or will they strecht? I'm on the wide side of D closer to E width , I have some D shoes but as a guide I'm E on Barrie last and EE on AE. 5 last.

    Thanks.

    I wear 10.5E Barrie and 11D Rancourt fits very snugly by comfortably in a boat shoe. The handsewn construction does have some give. Not sure how and 11D loafer would fit me though.

    True :) And I could probably work in wearing them. I have to say I'm thinking about the Blake wingtips that are supposed to be coming in August. Have some thoughts about mixing shell and suede on a pair... We'll see.

    Just received the Jack Spade Barron Boat Shoes in Green
    The shoes have been tried on definitely.
    I wear Alden Barrie Last in 6.5D, the boat shoes I got in 7D. At first I was worried about the sizing.
    But the initial try-on with normal sock and sockless were both ok, dunno how loose it will become after break-in.
    Could I use these shoes as a sizing reference for ranger moc and penny loafer?


    BTW, one thing I notice is the half in-sole inside the shoe. Are all the shoes by Rancourt have half-insole only?
    I felt kind of weird that when I walk because I could feel there is a "line" separating the foot bed, that is the forefoot of the in-sole drop down while the heel rise up...
