    just checked our olive loafers - the rough side is definitely untouched by olive pigment. might vary from color to color, but for these its natural on the underside.

    and yeah, the way I see it all things here are hypothetical until they show up in a brown box. don't want to over promise

    I have a pair of Cherry Cavalier mocs which are dyed all the way through, it's essentially like CXL, so if you want a roughout with color other than Natural that might be the way to go.

    Good call on cavalier. definately a CXL variant, but also definately dyed throughout. I don't recall the exact difference, but I think cavalier is "less lively" than normal CXL. might make it better for a sneaker

    Cavalier is top grain, struck through (dyed all the way through), and exhibits less pull up. There are some minor differences in the tannage that allow for brighter colors

    I bought these from Brooks brothers on sale. Not so great cell phone pictures

    Thanks to @FrankCowperwood for helping me with sizing. I ended up going with my TTS in my casual shoes and it fits perfect.

    I'm this threads worst nightmare; I always wear socks with my shoes, and not loafer socks either. the camp moccs I picked up are amazing but it's been tricky finding situations to wear them with shorts because i don't have appropriate socks. even today its a pair of beams 5 yarn mix socks with a pair of NBs, just gotta hope people I work with think I'm a well calculated dork instead of just a dork :bigstar:

    How long does it take to get rancourt to respond? I sent an email on Sunday asking about a resole. I know they got it cause I got a robo reply. Nothing complicated, just how to go about getting a resole. That's pi@@poor.

    I've had Scott "lose" an email from me. I'd say 24 hours during the week is standard.

    Yes, just put the appropriate resole in your cart (meaning the $60 for boat or camp sole, the $85 for any other type of sole, or the $120 for the full refurb). After you check out they will email you a fedex shipping label (maybe not instantly, they might have to send it manually).

    My Color 8 CXL Beefrolls are in need of a resole soon. I was thinking of switching to the RLH sole but I'm not sure if I should go for the natural crepe, or Ranger Brown. I don't particularly care for the profile of the ranger sole but im curious if the tread pattern makes any difference in terms of grip and comforty.

    I'm curious to hear the answer to this as well.

    FYI, I'm looking at RLH soles for an MTO, don't love the look of crepe, and want something lower profile than the Ranger. I came across the cricket sole and think it could be the answer for me. Could be something to check out.
