Thanks man, Luisa just got back to me with the same info so I won't blame you if they don't fit! smile.gif

I checked through the thread and just want to confirm: 10.5D on the Barrie last would most likely be a UK10 on Olfe?

10.5D on the Barrie fits pretty well; a touch roomy in the toe box and heel, but the length and comfort are good. Thanks!

I know someone posted a sizing guide in a previous page that Luisa sent and I tried measuring my foot according to that to ask her if her recommended size was still the best fit for me.

 

I wear 10.5D in AE and 10D in BM pretty comfortably and she recommended that I go with a UK 9.5 for the Classic Collection and a UK 10 for the Linea Maestro. Do those sizes seem about right to you guys? Also, out of curiosity, how come the Linea Maestro requires a half-size increase?

 

I've ordered the double monks from Meermin in a UK 9.5 and am wondering if I should do a UK 10, based on her recommendations, for the group buy that Terror has set up since that one is being made to the Linea Maestro standards.

 

Thanks for the input guys!

Quick question that is applicable for those who have ordered shoes in the past that were not going to be ready for 6,7,8,etc. weeks,

does Meermin issue an Invoice to PayPal and you don't pay anything until the shoes are actually ready to be shipped?

 

With the Styleforum MTO shoes, I am happy to pay the price and happy to wait the time, however I don;t want to actually pay anything until the 20 or so weeks have passed

and the shoes are ready for shipping.

 

thanks.

^^That would be a question for Terrorsquad. The price isn't bad, but you are holding my money for 5 months. Maybe Meermin would do half upfront (non-refundable), like many other shoe makers.

I bought another pair of shoes from Meermin before getting in on this most recent MTO group buy and Meermin's instructions upon checkout for me told me not to pay the PayPal invoice until the shoes are ready to ship. Here is the direct quote that was sent to me in my confirmation:

Sandro said my shoes would be ready by last Friday, but it has now been a week and I have emailed him multiple times with no reply. What to do?

Pepe paypal invoiced me after the details are set, paid 100% up front, and then wait till he sends pictures for updates.  And billed by FedEx at the time of delivery for import duty.

 

AFAIK, almost every MTO/bespoke, from shoes to suits, is either 50% up front or 100% up front.

I think this only applies to their RTW collection and not MTO. All the MTO's group buys I have handled (Meermin,Vass etc) have requested 100% payment upfront before they even start work on the shoe.

Yup, this is how Meermin operates actually. I think Chogall's answer already explains this.

 

With regards to this particular MTO group buy, bear in mind that:

a) Meermin will be sourcing the leather specially for this MTO (which Ilcea will need 8 weeks to make); and

b) the number of people participating in the MTO group buy (45) with a  long waiting list (20 in case people drop out).

 

All I know is that for other MTO group buys with other brands, the number of people is only between 6-15 people and they use the same leather they have been using for all their shoes. This is not the case for this MTO .

 

I also honestly don't think Meermin will take the risk of people pulling out when the shoes are ready as they not only have to pay Ilcea for the leather but also the fact that since this is a MTO, I dont think they will be able to sell the shoes to other people with someone else's initials imprinted in the shoe and on the sole of the shoe. 

 

But this is just my opinion and I stand to be corrected on the facts smile.gif

So I am yet to recieve my shoes and Luisa keeps saying they will ship next wee even though she has been saying saying this since the last 3 weeks. I actually bought these shoes for my trip to Nigeria and I might not get to take them with me since I leave next week. Don't want to come off as a pushy impatient American but id be lying if i said I was happy with their service frown.gif

I know it is only the 29th but I was wondering how long it usually takes to receive these shoes. I wasn't provided with a tracking number and now I am quite worried.
