My conjecture is that everything is done in China.  Final inspection for retail product is done in Spain (and the 'finishes').  Remember, Meermin mainly OEM to Japan and it doesn't make any logistic sense to make part in China, part in Spain, and then ship to Japan.

 

And yes, Chinese can do handwelting, its not magic.

Yeah pretty sure it's 100% China. The shoes also don't say Made in Spain anywhere

I have four pairs of Classic Line Meermins. 3 are standard catalouge, 4th is the reverse captoe oxford in mid brown (only black is listed on the webpage). The 4th one clearly says "Made in Spain" on the insole.

Does anyone have pictures of the Dark Brown Double Monks in the New Rey last for the LM line? I'm not a fan of regular double monks but I like the look of these because they are very longer/elegant looking (if you know what I mean). Any pictures of Dub Monks in the New Rey (or even Vil if it's possible) last would be appreciated.

Here you go ...

I had posted these before.

The last picture was taken a few minutes ago. Shoes have been worn several times and had to undergo a lot of dancing action on a XMas do.

Lol, indeed.

 

Products should be judged on their own merits, and not the origin label. China manufacturing has come a long way in the last 10-20 years.

I agree. I just need to get over the whole "where it's made" thing.

Gentlemen,

 

Can anyone confirm the current processing/shipping times?

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

      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.

Update on the double monk boot

post #4093 of 11561
They look awesome, which last? Possible group MTO with dainite soles and a medallion? nod[1].gif
post #4094 of 11561
Thanks man, olfe last, double rubber dainite
post #4095 of 11561
Beautiful! I actually like the look of the Olfe best, but the Ama seems to be pretty good as well, just haven't seen good pictures of shoes built on it. I expect you're going to keep us updates? Btw, is that burgundy or dark brown shell? My monitors are built for excel, not shoes (sadly).
