Yeah, my new rey looked like that the first time I wore them and they ate my feet! Now I can almost close them and they're getting comfortable and I've only worn them 3 times

I really love austerity brogues. Those look great. Your right v left shoe creasing looks exactly like mine; random comment, I know.

Good evening.

 

Would Meermin successfully be able to replicate G&G St James and Edward Green Inverness?

 

Thanks.

Soooooo, what colour saphir for the JL Phillip II MTO?

 

I'm thinking the Middle Brown however I'm concerend that some of the speckling will be lost if a coloured polish is used and

for that reason the Neutral would be the safer bet.

 

I just haven't used neutral before and don;t know how it looks.

 

thanks.

I posted quite a few last comparisons in this thread already.  Ben is a slim last.

Seems like the welt finishing still has quality control problems with visible remains of plastic cover (or dust), and the lasting is not tight enough.  Still a great pair of shoes regardless!

I received the classic brown oxford I ordered in December today. I noticed on of the left shoe, there is a "air pocket" between the inside lining and the leather. The right shoe does not have this issue. Both shoe looks fine from the outside.

Is this a problem?

Yes, I think you're right but they were overshadowed by the heel crack :-)

Finally (!) got my meermins today! They are so beautiful! Dark brown DM on the hiro and snuff suede chukkas on the rui, both classic line. Both in the same size. The DMs fit perfectly, the chukkas a bit roomy but not too much. Not sending them back, but might try extra insoles. Might try 10.5UK (these are 11UK) if I order a pair of those gorgeous LWBs.

I'm in a search for a pair of double monks and the meermin db in hiro lasts interest me: http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2338
My pair of CJ hallams(348) fits me perfectly in US size 9E. Would I be correct in assuming a 8(UK) for these would fit me well?
Also, how would you say the quality for their classic line is compared to Allen edmonds? I'm also looking the AE neumoras as a choice, which one would you get?
Thanks.

The Dms look awesome. I'm looking at the same pair. How much did it turn out to be total? What was the process of ordering like and how long did it take?
Thanks!

I spent 355€ including shoe trees and shipping, excluded VAT. I'll probably have to pay Norwegian VAT as well, bringing the total up above 400€. Well worth it in my opinion. 

 

The process took forever, I ordered at a real bad time, just a couple of weeks after they launched the web shop functionality, and just before christmas. They were out of stock. Took exactly two months between placing the order and getting the shoes at my door. 

 

Ordering was really easy, though.

Herr Brun, what photo of chukkas is closer to real color? Much lighter than at there website and less saturated.

And what do you think about toe box shape? I will be very grateful if you take a photo of them upside down (maybe on your foot).
