Meermin MTO stuck at Customs since 10/5.  lol

MTO directly through Vass. Transacted with the manager, Mr. Kuti

Specs that Vass changed:

I requested light brown edge trim instead received dark brown, looks black
I requested cognac shell instead received "whiskey"
I requested double sole instead received HAF sole

I think I prefer the screw ups over my specs. Couldn't be happier. It was such an odd process though since I didny realize I placed an order until after the shoes were made. It's typical for shoe companies to request 1/2 or even all of the MTO fee in the beginning but that wasn't the case. Didn't pay until 6 days ago.

Shell MTO
Metal Toe taps
Lasted trees
Shipping
Wire transfer fee
No duties icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Total damage: $777

And this was after I had coffee

Thanks, they are more like Ravello (if comparing to Alden) than Whiskey so it can be misleading

NAMOR, those are stunning. No idea how the specs you requested would have turned out, but their "mistakes" look brilliant to me. $777 seems like an outstanding price.

I agree, they have a great eye. $777 is an outstanding price for MTO shell. All the Vass regulars have been preaching this for a while and now I believe. I believe

What did you order??
post #4645 of 13126
NAMOR, good job on shoes. I think they would look better on 3636 last but that's just me. How come you weren't dinged by FedEx? What is the dealio?

Thanks Tom. Got word today from Vass telling me the same. Guess I'll go with the Topy over Vibram.

Vass can use Dainite, but you need to send them the sole/heel components. I Just bought three Dainite sets for future boots / sole replacements.

Thanks for the info and I'll keep that in mind for future orders.

Namor,

Nice shoes, man. Like the colour and how the F last looks in that model.
post #4649 of 13126

NAMOR,

I was expecting cognac to be a little darker, but your pictures look great. I am trying to choose between whiskey & cognac.
