Nice new Tricks wurg. I really like their espresso colour, as it is close to black at first glance and goes smartly with a suit as well as odd jacket and trousers. I was eyeing a pair of Epsoms off in black though as I already have the Belgraves in espresso.

Do these fit the same as your Regents?

thank you, Pop. The Jermyn St collection lasts are very short and stubby, the most classic English last I have, I prefer the modern last from the 1829 collection. Even the 1829 lasts is short compare to Loakes, CJ and AS lasts. Espresso actually seems lighter in day light compare to online photoes.

As for the fit, it's slightly tighter than the Regent, and pinky of my left foot rubbed against against the upper when new; I had to stretch it a bit, now it's comfortable. So you would still take the same size, but you will get a very short and stubby shoe.

Yes, the Jermyn St lasts are short and voluminous. I love the styles but I wish they made those in lower fittings than 5, so I could size up half in length!

Not a pair of mine but I'd like to take this opportunity to talk bad about Meermin. Just look at those upper stitchings, wobbly in all directions like a hungover palm. If this isn't shuu damage I don't know what is. It's been, what, two or three years since they appeared on SF and still these quality issues haven't been fixed. Meermin is just about the poorest maker on the market because they don't care.

Are these firsts? A long time ago I bought a pair of boots by Meermin's Pepe Albaladejo (for less than the price of Alden boots) and they are beautifully finished all around. Were it not for the international shipping and duties to the US I would have bought more.   If the above are firsts then its sad to see how far they have fallen.

I really like that last. I think "soft chiseled" is the perfect name.
post #19124 of 19546
Agree about the name of the last. Toe box is much roomier than it looks too.
