    My pictures don't really do these justice. I am absolutely in love with my custom make up. I finally got to pick them up yesterday after having them sit across the border (I'm canadian and its cheaper to order to Detroit than Ontario). Now I really just need to decide what I want next.

    Fwiw I just got my order shipped email today, that's about 7 weeks, after I got my ship date pushed back twice. I did email Katie after the first missed ship date to which she replied back and also CCed another CS rep who handles shipping.

    Looks good! I also got my loafers today. I went with Katie's advice on width and unfortunately, it's too narrow. I'll have to decide what I want to do with them haha.

    ^those does look very good.

    wonsmithr8, if it's CXL, won't it stretch a bit after some wearing?

    Yeah me too haha. Sure thing, I just took pics of one of the pair now. Included in the package was shoe bags, shoe horn, and 4 set coasters.

    Those look great! I'm told CXL stretches more width-wize than length, so you may yet be in luck.

    What're the thoughts on shoe trees for Rancourts? Thanks!

    Can't speak to the loafers, but there was a fair amount of heel slippage in my Blake wingtips that mostly went away as I broke them in.

    They will probably do that until the sole breaks in. Assuming they are on leather sole.

    I really don't do much. If they end up getting wet, lay the shoes on their sides and let them dry naturally. Don't try to accelerate the process. I may throw some leather conditioner on there once a year if I remember.

    I've found the only thing to really worry about is salt and/or any other chemical your town may use to treat ice. Salt can be a killer on leather. Try to remove it as quickly as possible.

    Other than that, wear them well, and rotate them. If you love them enough to want to wear them everyday, do yourself and your shoes a favor and buy another pair. :D

    Those look great. What color is that? I'm about to order a similar makeup and I'm trying to decide between brown, natural, and navy. Or maybe navy with a different colored collar. Too many decisions...
