Sorry, I have not experience with neither Brooks Brothers nor Modern Taylor, but I would insist in my previous point since you are in a place that it is surrounded by tailors (maybe not so good but I think that as good as an online tailor can be and cheaper than Harvey Nicols Dubai) why don't you try with one? In Shouk Al Bahar there is Ascott and Chapels there is/was an offer for 3 shirts for AED 750. This is USD 80 per shirt. Regarding rolling up the sleeves, I don't...
Thank you. Although I think you mean Mall of the Emirates. I would avoid Harvey Nicols as prices are 2 or 3 times more than USA. Why don't you have a couple of shirts made by one of the local tailors? Buy the fabric in Deepaks or Rivoli (Alumo.) and have them made for USD20-25 per shirt.
where do you buy Brooks Brothers and Alden in Dubai?
This is what I thought, but they have also some other models, 'made in the same factory in UK' with a channeled sole. As far as I know Church's doesn't make any longer channeled soles. The only few made were manufactured in Italy.
Who makes these?
Well, if opening your first shop in Japan rather in your home market of Spain http://meermin.tumblr.com/post/14009066963/nuestra-tienda-meermin-en-aoyama-tokyo-meermin and being mentioned on specialized Japanese press (Last - Men's Ex) https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.262463427136858.57966.253664761350058&type=1 is the typical marketing development for an spanish company, I can only say vivan los culytural complexes!
Looking forward to receiving your report. I just read on an Spanish forum that Meermin and Carmina used to buy together batches of leather from the same place. Also it seems that Carmina outlet in Granada used to sell Meermin shoes a few years back.
A new shoe shop called Mermin opened in Madrid last month. The following press release (sorry, only in Spanish) http://www.modaes.es/empresa/071111/la-familia-albadalejo-releva-a-shanghai-tang-en-ma mentions that the company belongs to the Albaladejo family, owners of Carmina shoes. The article mentions that the management for both companies only share the fact that both are Albaladejo's. The shop is based in Claudio Coello St, Madrid at walking distance from Carmina...

Carmina Split Toes. 9.5 Wide - $75 start. ' This is not correct. These aren't Carminas. They are Yankos. They are 2 different companies that only share that were created by the same person and that both are in Mallorca. Yanko retails in Spain for around EUR 180-220 for Goodyear while Carmina does it for over EUR 300.
