    I heard from Ryan last night that ranger mocs will be $320 + approx. $20 shipped to the States. Hoping my size doesn't sell out immediately.

    ^Good purchase.

    I bought the Yuketen Ranger Moccs from OP about a year ago, and I've worn them more than all my other shoes combined (which shows). Very versatile, very tough. The leather laces snapped after 9 months, but the shoes themselves are performing admirably and they age well.


    Thanks! Did you find a comparable lace replacement?

    Well that is cheaper, £275 comes to $411 USD as of today, looks like the Inventory Yuketens will run approx $350 USD. Not a huge difference, plus I got the darker brown, the color that inventory will not be carrying, so I guess that was worth the premium[​IMG]

    That is less like £40 something VAT.

    Call me crazy, but I bought them. Yeah it's a pretty big price to pay for a pair of shoes, but these things seem to sell out so damn fast, I knew if I didn't get them I'd probably be kicking myself.

    Hey Ryan, are your shoes going to be priced comparably to the one on Oi Polloi or do they just mark up the shit out of these things? Last thing I want to do is pay £275 only to see them for $275 at Inventory...[​IMG]


    Great buy. Nothing crazy about buying fine shoes. I am just surprised how fast Oi Polloi are able to move their goods. They must be thriving in these times.

    Seems like the ranger mocs run true to size. Is this everyone's experience?

    Hey - Our Ranger Mocs will be $325 + shipping and should be available in the next couple of days. There are certainly a lot of duties and shipping costs that we have to incurr, even in Canada. So I would imagine it would be worse for Oi Polloi - they also get a lot of pre-orders I think. Thanks. Country loafers are now available online http://inventorymagazine.com/stockro...-loafer-6.html

    Hey,
    8 is the smallest we ordered across the board. I would say the Ranger Mocs fit about 1/2 smaller than RW or Alden. I wear a 9 in RW and Alden, and I wear a 9.5 in the Ranger Mocs.

    Chukkas should be available near the end of the month.

    Ry'on, so if I wear a 11 (RW) and 11 or 11.5 (Alden) 11.5 (Cons/ Vans), would you go with a US 11 or US 12 in the County Ranger? Thanks!

    When someone is asking $350-400 for a unique pair of loafers or mocs, it's only natural that potential purchasers are going to want more info than the model name and price.

    I'm familiar with the shoes & own a pair of Yuketen chukkas (and two pairs of Quoddys), but I would still want a sufficient amount of detail -- type of leather, construction, comparison to other models, whatever -- before making a purchase. Especially with an online retailer. It's part of a positive customer experience. All the vendors I deal with do this willingly. If they don't, then my money stays in my wallet.

    ^CEE88 - I was just bugging him, he knows. If anybody wants any sort of specific details I am happy to help and offer any information and insight that I can. I would prefer to do it through email and respect the forum however as I am not a paying affiliate too. I am going to see about a restock but I would be a bit surprised. I am surprised how fast the loafers went as well at that price point. I didn't even get a pair and I wanted those the most myself... LandoCal126 - I would generally go up to a 11.5 or 12 if I were you from those references. I can tell you now unfortunately that all my big sizes are spoken for at this point. The big footers have been the first for pre-orders. Oh, btw, these arrived an hour ago... [​IMG] http://inventorymagazine.com/stockro...-ranger-5.html
