 Fair enough, my experience so far has been horrible. After 2 months of waiting they told me the shoes would be ready the following week and once again nothing happened. No apology, no contact, no reply, no shoes. These were standard models from the LM range. Maybe the quality/price ratio will be worth it, but it would have to be pretty outstanding. At the very least, one should not buy with a particular occasion (e.g. a wedding) in mind. For a standard extension of your...
Hi am sorry to say, based on customer service I cannot recommend Meermin at the moment. I have ordered two pairs over two months ago, they are still not ready and communication has been extremely poor. Maybe its because all the MTO shoes take up too much time ;-)
Ok, finally heard back from them, apparently there was a problem with the delivery of plum museum calf leather. They told me the black ones would be ready next week, the plum ones in 15 days. So I imagine you may have to wait a bit...
Has anybody recently had problems with delivery from Meermin?   I ordered two pairs of LM shoes (plum museum calf and black freudenberg calf) over 6 weeks ago and still have not received an invoice. So far, there have been no reactions to my emails. It is my first order from them and I am just wondering whether other people had the same problem and whether it is worth waiting...
No, I wear neither ripped jeans nor any loose casual clothing. I guess what bothers me about this analogy is that to me the equivalent of a suit jacket would be a plain captoe oxford rather than light brown brogues. I would never wear light brown brogues with a suit, I would go for something more formal, either black semi-brogues or plain dark brown shoes. So if I don't wear my brown brogues with casual clothes, I won't really wear them at all. I feel that there is a wide...
Thanks! Edward Green – unfortunately not in my budget yet. My current pairs are Ducker and Son and Cheaneys (Herring) and I am currently considering getting this: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=55&shoeid=7067
RogerP, can I ask who made those Derbys you posted?
Thanks for the comments!   I concede that there are some very sleek and elegant Bluchers, RogerP, those are beautiful shoes!   However, to my mind the closed lacing gives the shoes are more elegant, uninterrupted shape which simply looks better. I have only just realized how the look can become unbalanced when the rest of the outfit is too casual (I'm a student and new to SF).    These are the type of shoes I tend to wear with casual outfits (dark blue, slightly...
Hi everybody, I love my Goodyear welted Oxfords and really don't like the look of Blucher/Derby shoes. This might have to do with the fact that I am quite slim and so are my feet, i think Bluchers look a bit clunky on me. So I wanted to hear some opinions on wearing Oxfords with casual attire, i.e. Dark blue jeans and Chinos as well as Cord trousers. I am not talking about formal black shoes here but rather tan and brown fullbrogues and semibrogues. Is this too much of a...
I am selling a great pair of Herring Premier (Cheaney) Wholecuts UK 8F because I need to go down a size. I really do hate selling them, I have worn them about half a dozen - 10 times (not quite sure) but they are just a bit too big. Message me if interested.   245 incl UK shipping, down from 325 retail price.    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261420311328?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
