same with suedes, I saw on internet some pics from their Madrid shops there are Classic line monks and oxford in suede in @ least 5 different variety of suede... if they'd put them online i'd buy them all and live happily ever after (shoes speaking :p)

I've been wondering about this as well because I really like the Rui last for shell.  On a related note, I noticed that Meermin has removed several of the shell shoes from its website.

lets be clear.

there is a massive difference between what he received and perfection.

Yes, at the $200 price point, there will be some issues, but this is not a shoe that should have passed QC.

A little nick here and there and maybe some sole finishing thats not quite right is one thing. The separating sole and the large and noticeable discoloration is just not right.

And this is what I meant. Yes, not buying from then again would be harsh and I would honestly have to think about it, but I am more disapointed in them letting a product with so many issues even leave the manufacturing area. It's the same in the restaurant business, if you know the steak is rare, but the person who ordered it wanted it medium..then why send it out? Somebody either thought that the recipient didn't care or that the shoe would first be sent to QC or something.

The QC problems is what keeps me from ordering Meermin, and why I stopped purchasing AE's.

Sometimes great customer service cannot overcome lowered manufacturing standards...

Yep.

Additionally, with AE its usually a quick and easy process to exchange a pair. With meermin, there is significant shipping back and forth, time, etc. As good as their customer service may be, they still have a whole ocean's worth of distance to contend with.

Ya, just my opinion, but I think it's only worth bothering with meermin if you cannot find a similar shoe at their pricepoint. Ex: I intend to order that austerity brogue from them, solely because I cannot find a similar version at the price somewhere easier to deal with. If AE (or other) offered a similar shoe, on a similar last, for an even somewhat similar price, I'd be all over it instead.

My philosophy as well.  I purchased the shell longwings from Meermin because I'm not a fan of the AE MacNeil.  LIkewise, I may purchase the new adelaide on the Olfe last because AE has nothing comparable.
