    They just told me yesterday that they are going to remake them. Hopefully they pay closer attention to the detail this time.

    Not sure what #menswear is, but when I googled it and looked at the pictures I thought "HIPSTER!"

    Whatever though. I don't wear slim fit jeans or fitting flannel shirts. I'm more in to Penny Loafers and thick wale cords and cable knit sweaters.

    I just got out my ironing board and decreased the width of the rolled cuff on my slevedge by about 50% to 1.25".

    Hopefully that will prevent further instances of mistaken [self] identity.

    Hipster is such a throw away word (no disrespect meant to your sister). Wear them without irony and without making some effort to pose as something you are not, and then you are just wearing a pair of boots you like. No worries.

    Haven't done a resole with Rancourt myself, but it seems like they should be able to do what you mention here for $50 plus shipping:

    (From their website): A: Yes, all of our shoes can be re-soled multiple times. We charge $50 for the service, plus shipping. We will only re-sole shoes that were made by us. We can replace the soles on your shoes with any type of sole we have in stock. For an additional $25, we will refinish the shoes by cleaning, moisturizing, and buffing the leather and replacing the old leather sockliners with new ones. You can purchase this service in our online shop in the "Shoe Care" category.

    Can they add a lining after the shoe has already been built and worn a few times?

    Looks a bit different in person, just as a disclaimer.

    New to styleforum so.....Hi!

    Anyways, I've been looking into ordering a pair of ranger mocs but I have a few questions I was hoping the fine gentlemen of styleforum could help me with. I was sized at taylor stitch here in SF and was measured right at a size 12 and was advised to size down half a size to account for stretching of the leather. From your experience does this seem about right?

    This might be a bit of a "noob" question but what are the biggest differences between having the shoe lined and unlined? Is it mostly fitting? Comfort? Durability?

    I'm looking forward to purchasing my Ranger Mocs and appreciate the help, thanks!

    When you say that you were sized as a 12 at Taylor Stitch, do you mean they sized you there on a Brannock device? If so, I would contact (call or email) Rancourt and tell them that you were sized a 12 on the Brannock and ask them what size they recommend for the Ranger Moc. FWIW, this is what I did; they recommended an 8E for me, the same as what I was on the Brannock, and they fit perfectly. I have had my Ranger Mocs for about 6 months and have worn them extensively. Mine are on the dark brown CXL and I haven't noticed any stretching.

    Mine are unlined and the main thing that I notice about them being unlined (compared to other similar shoes that do have the extra layer) is that they are nice and cool in the summer but now that the weather is cooler my feet start to get a bit cold in them even when I am wearing pretty thick socks.
