One question, though.  Is that the dark brown?  It looks quite a bit lighter than the website.

I pressume that first order update that will matter will be the one asking me to pay, amirite?

 

Initiated just means they put in the order for it to be organized/whatever. They will eventually send you an email saying to pay for the order.

 

This was my update history:

 

  • 15/dic/2012 Order introduced into the system.
  • 19/dic/2012 Order initiated.
  • 18/ene/2013 Order finished.
  • 21/ene/2013 Order send it.

 

And in other news, just got my double monks today. Great stuff for the price. From Canada and Fedex didn't charge me any duties or fees even with the trees.

My only problem with them is the really high instep, but im sure that will shrink when I wear them in.

Not sure if has been discussed. However, I saw a comment on a random blog saying that these Meermin are made in China, and "finished" in Spain. Does this hold any truth?

I believe the uppers are sewn in china. It was heavily discussed on this thread if I remember right. Not sure if that is true of just the classics but I think it'd be difficult to do MTO's in china then finished in Mallorca.

Yes these are the dark brown , all my meermins pairs are a bit lighter than they appear on their site

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?
