That is exactly what my shoe wardrobe has ended up looking like. Occasional Meermin for bad weather. Standard finish is on par these days with what I have seen from G&G as it has been improving considerably over the past years. I would even say the coloring is considerably better on a Meccariello. The fit of the shoe also improves with each order. First one fit nearly as well as a G&G, third one may as well have been long time bespoke.
