• 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

Last summer I got some of the non-spring trees from shoepassion for my CXL loafers. I went with a smaller size… but not quite small enough, so I needed to modify them just a bit to what I thought was the right amount of snugness. They seem to work well though I guess I’ll know more when I bring the loafers out from winter hibernation.
Adjustable snugness sounds really great for handsewns. Will bookmark. Might try them sometime. I feel like what I'm currently doing is probably fine though. It keeps the vamp where it should be which seems good enough.

Anyone hear from Rancourt about the status of their Byron boot pre-order? I’m starting to get impatient to receive my two pairs!

Just a heads up that Huckberry has all of their Rancourt stock on sale through tomorrow. I’ve not purchased from them prevpiously but did just place an order for their exclusive bison Acadia Chukka. Free shipping and 30 day returns.

I have bought from them before and did have a pleasant experience even though the item did not work out for me.

I have a pair of Rancourt King something slippers that I bought from them that I have not worn yet.

I have purchased from them, you will be fine. I even had a problem with a pair of boots and they went above and beyond to make sure I was happy....contacted the factory on my behalf and didn't let up until I got what I wanted. Seriously good customer service, so good that they are bookmarked on my web browser, will order from them first if in market for something they carry.

Tuesday. Rancourt Natural Shell Cordovan Boat Shoes.

I had that same configuration setup on their site the other day. So tempting. I did find a pair of carolina brown classic ranger mocs for 50% off. At least I will know my size.

I’ll try to take better pics tomorrow. These were immediately placed in the bottom of the closet to avoid drawing attention so they look rougher than they did upon arrival

Quick on foot shot of the Huckberry Bison Acadia’s. Note: Huckberry and Rancourt are both great to deal with as there was a quality issue on Rancourt’s end. Both were great and responded immediately and addressed the issue. I received my replacement pair today, which is only a few days after my initial return request. I’d gladly do business with both moving forward. And back to the poor basement photo
