I’d been wanting a pair of natural CXL loafers and I’m so glad I chose these. The leather is really nice with no loose grain or inconsistent creasing. I’m convinced Rancourt somehow has special access to the best chromexcel. I’m a low volume/low instep Brannock 8.5E, and ordered an 8E based on the sizing chart and recommendations. They were pretty snug at first, but after a few wears, have stretched and broken in perfectly.
