What is off with the fit?I've got the plain toe derbies (Sanfords) in caramel shell. I would have multiple Bartletts as well if Allen Edmonds' Strand didn't edge them out in fit!
Thanks for the feedback.
Thanks for the pictures!I had a pair of wingtips and two pair of the pebble grain Greenwood shoes and found them all to be well-built and comfortable. I was not a fan of the soft soles of the Greenwoods and had one pair resoled. I probably would’ve had the other resoled as well but better-fitting pairs eased them out of my lineup. I enjoyed wearing all three pairs but all were wider in the heels than I liked, and I eventually decided the 115 last is not for me.
Edit: My eventual decision to give up the 115 aside, I think Rancourt makes excellent footwear and I frequently wear their loafers, mocs of various sorts, and boots.

I have had the pleasure of being inside the factory for both Rancourt and Quoddy and I love them both. I have owned multiples of each brand. I definitely trust them, just trying to decide why I should go with them for a more formal shoe compared to the normal AE/ Alden I would tend to float towards. There isn’t many resources on their formal shoes compared to their loafers / Mocs and boots, unfortunately.
