Re: GH Bass Europe '12 days of xmas sale'

I have just ordered a pair of their Camp mocs.

Anyone got them ?

Yes I have three pairs bought recently - I got one and they ware so good I got all three colours.  I'm wearing them almost exclusively at present.  I'm just back from Devon where they stood up to walking, beaches etc with no detriment.

Is this the camp mocs rather than the Blucher Mocs M ?
Its is confusing as Bass seem to call both Camp mocs.

Re: GH Bass Europe '12 days of xmas sale'

Good point - I got the ones called 'Ranger Montgomery'.

These are the ones I got:
https://www.ghbass-eu.com/sale/ranger-m … ather.html

They aren't actually shown on the Camp Moc page but on the Outdoors once here:
https://www.ghbass-eu.com/men/boots.html

The Jackman model is similar, lighter for summer.     
https://www.ghbass-eu.com/men/camp-mocc … ather.html 

I find the Ranger Montgomery is still perfect but summer but a bit more robust.

The Ranger Moc II is a boot version of the ones I have including some with a Crocodile teeth sole (but beware those with suede on the apron, eugh).

Nice Armchaired.  You need to wear them lakeside in a New York upstate summer cabin holiday while cooking some steak and readying the cocktails for guests coming over.

Camp-Ivy?   Perhaps not.

Re: GH Bass Europe '12 days of xmas sale'

I think that counts as our equivalent.

Mocs in Devon last week was good amongst the surfer crowd.   Shorts, polo, Mocs w/o socks, one of those zip up jumpers for later and an olive drab short hooded rain coat was order of the day.

Re: GH Bass Europe '12 days of xmas sale'

I popped in here for the first time last week...and they've a fair few bits, eh?
I got a bit confused by the fella's spiel there as to where they're actually made these days mind?!?!?

Is it China or El Salvador again...?

Or have I totally confused conversations....which is highly likely?!?!?

How are the Camp Mocs finding ya AC?

I fancy some currently but know not where to go...
Used to loathe them...but we all change in our tastes, eh? Maybe summat with a chunkier sole methinks?!?

Hi Thee Captain,

the ones with the chunky soles I have are wearing well:
https://www.ghbass-eu.com/sale/ranger-m … ather.html

They didn't have them in the Soho shop, I ordered directly which went well for me.  Arrived each time within two days.

I see online they are discounted to £80 online which is a genuine bargain.

How ya doin Mon Capitaine ?

Re the Bass Camp Mocs , its a mixed report to be honest.
These are dossing shoes for me and for the £68 i paid (half price) its about the right price point.
The colour and leather uppers are quite nice ,the sole is lighter and more Flimsy than the Bean equivalent,
and they come up quite big and roomy, which is a pain as i now have to wear socks with them.

Them there Quoddys you posted, look the nuts !

stylewise those are excellent TC, but they'll wear out in a day of walking around a city, but they're the best summer house slippers though ... great for camping since the soft soles won't destroy a tent ....

I have a pair, old Gokeys, they're very similar, had them resoled once years ago, they're still going ....

Quoddy does use a "Vibram handsewn wrap sole" on its Boat Moc II, never had that sole, it came along recently ....

look to the Russell camp moccasin mon ami for some real Al from Wisconsin action

I dig 'em, they're what I bought several years ago when I decided to daringly expand my moccasin collection beyond the venerable Bean bluchers and the Gokeys, which I bought along with a Dopp kit from an old Gokey/Gokeys catalog

though they have a brown Vibram siped sole, and not a true camp sole, it looks like a camp sole from the side

actually back in the mid-'00s I had a pair of ankle chukkas made at Quoddy, they're good, they have a true camp sole by Amazonas, they work, but Quoddy today is completely different from the former small family business with reasonably priced mocs  ...... 

I like the Russells and Quoddys I got because there's no metal hardware on them, that was a big factor in the decision .....

but the plain old Bean camp moc is worth considering too, the price is right and the soles last a long time and though I like the old "true" camp soles with pebbling and center indentation the ones on the Beans do last for years ....

^ +1 the Russell are the mutts nuts, but ordering from the UK can be a nightmare with them.

Re: GH Bass Europe '12 days of xmas sale'

Rancourt do great formal shoes but the rougher end ( canoe mocc, ranger mcc) are a bit too sedate and refind IMHO.
i think those styles seem to really benefit from a slightly rougher look.

for the money these are great as beaters ( the saddle colour ages really nicely)
