Do you happen to know where I can find pictures of their tobacco suede?
I was seeing the yellow as a yellower tobacco color - more like the wrapper. I guess tobacco is usually a bit browner, but I just saw what Spier calls tobacco in that color. Sorry for the confusion!

Ah. That makes sense. I think the peanut suede is perhaps closer to a tobacco color. It's a very nice shade. The marigold, seafoam green, burgundy, and peanut are all nice suedes available on the women's models that I wouldn't mind getting on custom orders.

Mmm. That seafoam and yellow are great. Though, the seafoam definitely needs to stick to a boat shoe for men I think! :p
I've got burgundy suede (from AE); it's very strong in person.

First day out with the flint kudu Eastports.

I’m bad at waiting so I ordered the marigold suede Eastports as well. Should arrive at the same time as the camel kudu pair.

Pretty sure I’m set on shoes for now. Here’s hoping.

More flint kudu. These are definitely my favorite pair now, but maybe that will change when the marigold suede and camel kudu suede versions arrive.

Edit: Debating whether the above beefrolls work for me or not. I love the color 8 CXL, but I think the way the collar doesn't conform to my foot shape on the beefrolls can make them look a little weird. It's not really a fault of the loafer. It's just my feet being low volume. Anyone else have this issue or an opinion on it? Perhaps I just shouldn't wear shorts with them. The no show socks/no socks looks are probably making the fit look a lot worse due to less volume.

Happy Friday. I keep wearing these. I should stop posting pictures every time. Once the camel kudu suede and marigold suede ones come in things will be more diverse.

Should be placing the order for the color 8 CXL Eastports today. Then I will be actually done with adding to the collection for a long long while. They just make more sense for my feet than the standard CXL Beefroll which fits me a little awkwardly.

Looking great. And CXL Eastports sound really good. Essex perhaps also, hmm.

I’ve been wearing my own (not infrequently posted) Rancourts a lot lately. Today’s are favorites:

For all the Rancourt Guru's I have a dumb question.
What are the differences between the Classic, Baxter and Sherman Ranger Moc's other than the leathers and the soles?

Am I missing something obvious?
The reason I ask is I have a pair of Baxters 11B CXL that are the most comfortable shoes I own. I have to wear with socks but that is ok.
I would like to get the same comfort in Bison/RLH Aspen which I think is the Sherman Ranger.
