    Bass Fenmore Weejun (Gilt + Coupon)

    Does anyone have information on the made in Maine Fenmore Weejun line?

    I've heard they're made by Rancourt. Is this possible, if so ... can someone enlighten me on rancourt sizing so I can insta-buy these? Im a 10.5-11 in AE. Should I size down to 10 or will 10.5 be okay?

      I have a pair of Rancourt and from the looks of it, they are exactly the same in terms of construction. Surprisingly I am also the same size as you in AE. My 10.5 Rancourt is perfect with socks and slips a little without. I ordered a pair of 10D in wheat for these. From my experience, CXL is fairly soft and will stretch with wear.

        I saw you post on SF that you bought them and they arrived - what size did you get and how did they fit? I'm still on the fence because I'm not sure if I should size down (or whether I need another pair of shoes...)

          I can tell you for certain even at $200 you won't be disappointed. Definitely Rancourt in my mind after comparing them to my roommates pair.

          As far as sizing, I usually range anywhere from 10-11. At the 10 - 10.5 range would be sperry's clarks db/wallabee's. And to the 11 range are my AE & TBNYs. I usually size up in dress shoes for a comfortable fit and so creasing doesn't occur on the cap.

          As to the fit here, I went with a 10.5. I was concerned at the time about heel slip as it is a pet peeve of mine with any loafer. And one of the main reasons I size down in sperrys to get a tight fit. The 10.5 provided me with almost a perfect fit. 11 would have been too much shoe. If anything these are a bit loose in the heel, a bit tight in the toe box. Feel free to PM me if you need any more advice.

            I wish i would have seen this when they were on gilt. I have been eyeing them for some time. Considering these LL Bean Signature loafers as a cheaper alternative.
