I understand your position but whether a last is for me or not is up for me to decide. People size up or down in the same brand all the time. 

 

Now back to the topic. Can someone comment on my original question? Do you size up in the New Rey in comparison to the Hiro?

My Meermin timeline, in case anyone is interested:

 

Item Ordered: 12153 – Dark Brown Calfskin Wingtip

Note: This is from the classic line and is NOT MTM. 

 

11/23/2012: Shoes Ordered

11/23/2012: Order Confirmation Email Received

11/27/2012: Invoice Received

                  Invoice states that “As your order is ready to ship, we will send you a Pay pal payment request”

12/10/2012: Request for Payment Received

      Payment request states that “your order will be ready for shipment within 20 – 25 days.  Meermin now awaits the                   finalisation of your payment,” [which I took to mean that I should pay now.]

12/13/2012: Payment executed

01/07/2013: Email sent to request update on order (as it had been 28 days since payment request).

01/09/2013: Email received stating “Your pair will be ready during this week.”

                  [received on a Wednesday, which I assumed would mean that it would ship by that weekend, although it appears

                  he was referring to the following weekend.]

01/16/2013: Notification received that shoes had been processed and shipped.

01/19/2013: Shoes actually picked up by Fedex.

01/21/2012: Shoes received.

OK, let me know when you find a last that fits you as if bespoke. Until then, you're making compromises on fit.

I have not heard back from any of you so I am assuming all the detailed invoices are correct and has been paid for smile.gif

 

Ilcea leathers will soon be on the way and Pepe will send me pictures of the whole process for this MTO, which I will update all of you via this thread.

Anybody have any pictures of the dark brown double monks after some wear?

Been thinking about these for awhile wanted to see how they hold up.

^^ I'll second the request for a pic of some worn in dark brown double buckles from Meermin.  I placed an order for a pair of them on the 12th and am curious as to how they wear.

Looking to pick up a pair of the brown double monks. Have a couple questions.

I usually take a 9.5D in Allen Edmonds- any sizing recommendations?

Also, is it simple and painless getting them shipped to the states?

Let me introduce you to a new concept - Made To Order.

Thanks for the update.  I paid mine.  But please check with Pepe to make sure he got all the funds to proceed with the order.

8.5.

 

Simple, yes.  Painless, not always.  I had to fill out LACEY and import form and paid FedEx ~10% for importing a pair of shoes and its shoe trees.  Shoe trees are not worth it; not lasted, fits bad, etc.

This will be my last response to your idiotic posts on this subject - it's clearly dragging this thread down, however surely you know the difference between made to order and bespoke? The one where an existing block/pattern/last is modified to more closely suit your measurements, as opposed to your measurements being taken and a brand new, unique pattern/last being made based on those measurements, with no basis on anything pre-existing? Surely that knowledge is one of the first things you should learn on a forum such as this - assuming you didn't before.

 

There's a reason Meermin MTO costs ~350 Euro and a bespoke pair is 2000+

Hi everybody, quick question: Do Meermin's shoe sizes (ama last) correspond more or less to Loake 1880 (e.g. Mayfair )? thx
