Mine arrived yesterday. They seem very soft and comfortable. I am looking forward to putting some miles on them.
I have the same size in a horsehide on the same sole. Those are very comfy and more boot-like. The leather is not a soft as the Essex. These Essex's feel almost like slippers. I am glad I got in on these.

They only come in D widths.
That is a very comfy sole but slippery on wet surfaces. Basically a three eyed moc. Only way to get that configuration from Rancourt is a custom order.
Wow that creation looks AWESOME. I feel that their boat shoe style fits me the best and that's a boat shoe with an extra pair of eyelets.

Rancourt is doing another crowdfunding event: https://www.rancourtandcompany.com/collections/holiday-sale-pre-order

There are some great fall and winter options. The stated shipping deadline is 12/9/22 for shoes ordered during this event.
Same models on offer as in past few crowd funding events at a higher price. Still represents a very good deal but nothing to get excited about here for aficionados. I would have preferred something new and different -- like a Weltline loafer, an Eastport in CXL, Blake boot or a Barlett oxford. None of these have been offered in past events.

Re baxter ranger moc is there any advantage to adding a liner?
Always have sizing problem right at 11 go with true to size or down 1/2 Ive read that they won't stretch lengthwise but will in width so size down on width or go true?

A liner will help reduce the stretching. My CXL 11B fit fine when new but after 6 months I need a tongue pad, thin insert, and in some cases a tongue kiltie beneath the laces. Without the above, the uppers touch when laced tight. Sizing down 1/2 is not an option for me, except with camp soles, as the shoe flexes in the wrong spot. Crowdfunding gives you a chance to try the downsize at a lesser $ risk.

Your Baxter has or does not have a lining?
Thanks

Never tried either but I can comment on the AE comparison. The Byron is on the 511, so I'd sat its probably gonna feel a lot like a Long Branch. The Harrison is on the 2592 so that's a lot harder for me to compare - at least to anything current. I guess if you can imagine taking an eastport and ripping out all the poron....
