• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Thank you!
I just added that I also get their Wheeled Welt, which adds the more custom look with the edge. I saw it on the special orders that they did for Leffot back in the day and love the custom look that it yields.

The Pennys have the Wheeled Welt, the Boats have the Regular Welt.

I was never one for pinch penny or boat shoe style but seeing your pairs here over the last year has beat it into me that I must have a few pairs.

First step is to make sure the fit will work as my instep is on the higher side. Hopefully with EE it should be ok. We will see.

Rancourt is pretty awesome and will send you a few pairs to test fit out. I have don’t all of my orders with Scott White. If you DM me, I can give you his direct line.

They are Moccasin construction, so not Goodyear Welted. But they can still be re-soled. The outsoles that I use are their old stock soles, but they now just offer as a MTO if you call them. It is the Rugby Leather Sole and I got their older Key Heels as well.. Full specifications on them were as follows... I also get their Wheeled Welt, which adds the more custom look with the edge. I saw it on the special orders that they did for Leffot back in the day and love the custom look that it yields.

Pinch Penny (4501-04S)
Espresso Shell Cordovan (Dyed Twice - Vice Standard of Three Times)
Unlined
Tan HS Thread
Rugby Sole w/Key Heel
Wheeled Welt w/Natural Edge Stain
10D

6011-LG; Shoe Trees - Split Toe (size 9.5EE - 11.5D)

Hope that helps!

-Mike
Never realized you could customize the number of dye applications - really took a few shades off the espresso. Fantastic color.

March 6 for me but I received an email shortly after posting saying they were going to be a little late.

Hello. New to this thread so I’ll post a few of my Rancourt shoes. Currently I have Gilman camp mocs in carolina brown CXL, essex boat shoes, and Eastport penny loafers in brown. Khaki suede ranger mocs should be here in a few weeks. I am considering a pair of beefroll penny loafers in color 8 CXL eventually.

These are all relatively new which is why they don’t have much wear.
