Some patrons would actually prefer that their favorite makers remain under the radar, deliberately not expanding. I think for brands like S.E.H. Kelly, it is actually their preferred niche, no?
I have handled both. Loake (1880 line) is better than Meermin in terms of finishing and leather quality. Loake's is soft and pliable; Meermin's a touch stiffer and drier. Meermin's shape is nicer though.
