    They are doing another run of Ranger Moccs in the Buckaroo Tobacco for anyone that's interested. They are going to Oi Polloi, who should have them by the end of April.

    Just got a pair of the ranger mocs today (thanks mrsmiff!) and they're pretty awesome. Much nicer than quoddy and ralph lauren mocs.

    Shoe porn pls!

    That's weird because I rang BG at the start of March and they quoted me about $180-190 for the boat shoe. Are American Rag that much more expensive or are my wires crossed?
    I'll double check this weekend. Might pick one of the 3 up.



    Now, onto some pr0n. These are from FW08 I believe:

    Nice shoes timpoblete. It's the penny loafer I presume?I really like the colour. It's a bit like Alden's cigar.

    I did get my wires crossed about BG's Yuketen prices. A friend just bought scotch-grain boat shoes there and paid circa $280 for them. I must have misheard the first digit.

    For Lel, PinkPantser and jet asking about the suede boot; these are the hi-top version of the Yuketen buck and won't be available until fall. There is a regular shoe version of this with the trad brick-red Vibram sole available for summer. Colours are the same: tan, white and navy.

    At the moment I've got a line on the brown hunting boot with the herringbone shaft, but I am undecided. I don't know if I would ever wear them given that I don't have to catch and kill my own food.

    After a quick look through the thread, don't think this was posted. There's a bunch of pics of the shoes with each model from FW08.

    Thanks mikey34! I'm undecided on whether I'm keeping these. My wide feet just don't look right in these beauties [​IMG].

    I'd keep them just for the fact that I love those shoes so much. I don't think I could ever afford them though.

    Are you referring to the narrow look they have, or do they just not fit?

    I've been enjoying mine though, and I think I have room in my life for a pair of those chukkas and back zipper boots.

    US12. They fit me better than my Quoddy and Ralph Lauren mocs. I'd like some of their boat shoes too, but $260 or whatever for those seems dumb.

    They just don't fit. The edges of my feet are hanging out over the soles.

    Ah, that sucks. Do you normally wear a wider width in your shoes?


    Just took a picture of mine:

    Thats what I was talking about earlier in the thread. The forefoot of the Ranger Mocc last is narrow , especially compared to the back of the foot.

    They will do E sizes in moccasins on special order. I know because I ordered one[​IMG]
