    And I forgot to add socks! I'm sure those ducks are beyond comparison with my Carhartt's when it comes to fit. I'll have to look into them.

    So, what color is the edging? Mind posting a pic?

    Those snuff suede ranger mocs are so great, makes me wish I'd gone with those instead of the #8 CXL.

    Thanks, guys! Here is the edging--

    I like that the rubber is barely noticeable from the sides.

    Anyone interested in a size 6.5D (fits a true 7-7.5D) half-strap loafer in Natural Chromexcel? Willing to sell for half-price. I mis-sized my first time around.

    Took my family to the zoo today and decided to take the suede chukkas out for their maiden voyage since they seem to be excellent walking shoes. I definitely made a good choice as they were perfect for walking all day. Very comfortable. I really think I should pickup a brown pair during the BB corporate card sale next week if they still have them in my size.

    Here are a couple of outdoor pics:

    Honestly, when I first saw these on the Brooks Bros site I thought they looked like crap.
    was wavering as to if I should order them (even with the crazy discount)
    after seeing these pics I'm kicking myself for not having jumped during the FF sale and am only hoping they're avail for the corporate sale.
    they look great!
    thanks for posting

    (and if anyone has real world pics of the navy I'd be much obliged)

    Dunno. Maybe no one, except for Kyle at Rancourt, can give you a definitive answer. I'm not sure what leather the RL chukka is, but for just about the same price, you could order a shell chukka from Rancourt.

    Edit: And I should have added that they sure do look the exact same as the Rancourts!

    Yes, they look just like the Rancourts I ordered this week. I need another pair of their chukkas in a lighter calfskin leather, I'm done with Shell and CXL leather.

    These look great on the ground. The color is outstanding, as is the texture from the suede. Very nice.


    ^Looks great, MGD.

    Here's a shot of mine from this weekend. I've never worn crepe soles before and they are extremely comfortable. Actually so are the camp soles -- less cushion, but so flexible. Combined with the CXL on the pinch pennies it's like walking around in your socks.

    For those interested in my 11.5B sizing experiment, it's going well. The 11.5B is working very nicely in the CXL pinch penny loafer. The suede chukkas shown above are 11.5D, and also fit well. Not too wide at all. I like the little bit of extra length in both. I think I'm definitely going to stick with 11.5 as my Rancourt size (vs. 11 on the Brannock), and go D width for a pair of shell ranger mocs.

    My Rancourt sizing experience.

    Bought a pair of RL branded beef roll penny loafers in 10.5d which is a 1/2 size down for me.
    They fit fine when new but they stretched like mad so they're kind of loose now.

    Since then I've purchased 2 pairs of RL branded loafers in 10d. They were very snug at first but stretched out nicely
    and fit great now

    So at the recent BB F&F sale I ordered a pair of the olive beef rolls in 10d.
    Those ended up being way too tight to wear and didn't feel like they were going to stretch out enough so I returned them.
