I just said that I'm not a fan, not that I murdered someones sister, calm down tounge.gif. I'm pretty indifferent to dubmonks, there's just so many other shoes I'd rather have. And before someone suggests that I don't approve of buckles, look up the Lavenum boot by Barker Black, it's my go to dress boot.

They sent my shoes to my billing address (home) rather than my shipping address (work) so I had to go home and wait for my shipment to arrive. Good thing I only live 15 minutes drive away facepalm.gif

Anyhow, they shipped on Friday from Spain and I received today in Toronto, Canada. I would say the speed of shipping is rather good.satisfied.gif

Will examine the shoes and post pics later on happy.gif

I personally don't like it at all, it looks way to blobby.

Don't like double monks but you like triple monks?     nest.gif

I don't like the last for the style. Lots of others offer similar shoes in much more desirable shapes. If you're set on Meermin and a full brogue, I'd try Hiro/Ama.

Off balanced.  The last calls for either heavier welt and sole, or fancier leather upper.

 

Either way, its welt has been trimmed too much.

Wide-angle pics are not a good idea for shoes.

Here're the pics of my cordovan LWB...

For comparison: (L) Alden for JCrew sz 9.5US, (C) Meermin LWB sz 9UK, (R) RL Marlow sz 10US.


Side profile of Meermin vs Alden








Overall, I must say I am pretty happy with the purchase. The shoes are solidly made and more refined than the AE MacNeil I fondled recently in a store.

Looking for Meermin sizing help as well.   I have a narrow foot and wear:

 

9.5 Ferragamo Tramezza Burgundy

8.5  E C&J 360 last (Malton) (slightly too wide) Chestnut

9.5  C (narrow) Peal & Co (C&J 240 last)  Tan

9/9.5 D (narrow) Edward Green 82 Last  Black

 

The guys at the Armoury reccomended that I order an 8.5 UK in the simpson last.

 

E-mailed Meermin and got a response from Luisa that I should order a 9 UK in the New Ray last(their narrowest). 

 

What do you guys think?  I read through the thread and several suggested they took the same size in the new ray as they did in the simpson...so Im not sure.

 

Thanks!
