    Hey All,

    Thinking about picking up another pair of Rancourt Beefrolls - currently have the Brown CXL but thinking about going with suede this time.

    I'm thinking Navy suede with RLH honey sole

    My question is what would be the most appropriate type of suede to pull this off in the office with? We are very business casual, but want something that is going to maintain shape (I'd like to save the super-soft suede for the weekends).

    Does anyone have any experience with these? It seems like there are a few options;

    Calico
    Orion (really like the look of the Navy Quoddy from UnionMade)
    Repello - seems to be more formal with a thinner nap
    Odesa - seems to be more like a Clark desert boot kind of suede, maybe a bit too thick?

    Not sure of any of the other ones, but curious to hear SF'ers experience...

    The Streetwear and Denim forum has a very active Rancourt thread where you might get more information.
