  that answers the question regarding their use of cork.   still doesn't explain why the shoe was so wet inside if it was just a 10-15 walk through some light rain.
Actually, you are still mistaken.   If you read the page you link to it states "However, handwelting has the advantage of being able to directly attach the welt to the insole without the use of the canvas rib that’s necessary for Goodyear welting. This allows you to use thinner layers of cork..."   The key line being "this allows you to use thinner layers of cork", not that Meermin does use a layer of cork.
a lot of fucking words, any fucking pictures?
ROmp is wrong, you are correct.   Hand welted, which Meermin's "linea Masetro" and by extension MTO shoes are constructed as, do not have a cork layer.   Romp's mistake was letting them air dry for 24Hours, if the inside is still damp, the inside is still damp, not much more to it. They must have copped one hell of a soaking.   All that need to be done is to stuff the shoe full of paper towels to suck out the moisture and once dry tree them and wear them.
tie doesn't do anything for me and the pocket square is too matchy matchy with the tie fabric.
I have a pair of vintage boar bristle clothes brushes for sale on eBay: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/251256460509?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
the welt is a bit rough...
brown suede.   Have spoken to Luisa and the suede version should be available now. Brown calf would be an extra cost although I'm sure it wouldn't be the full MTO cost and may even be no charge if enough people are after it.
what are fourchettes
Now I'm freaking out.   I am also in Melbounre, Aus and I bought a pair of Loake Dorchesters from Pediwear about 14 months ago.   My advise is to size down! I wear a UK 12 (US 13) and the Loakes are a bit too loose for my liking, add in the fact that it is a long, pointy last ( i wouldn't call it narrow) and sometimes it feels a bit like I am wearing clown shoes, however with an insole it works out alright.
