It's nice that they've been willing to work with me to get at least part of my order sent, and they're going to eat the extra shipping costs.

 

If I could ask, what did you order and when?

I ordered January 27th. One pair of light brown Classic double monks, and a pair of single black monks.

I'm glad your order is shipping much quicker than mine did. Maybe my size (8UK) is the reason its taking longer.

I'll find out for sure in a few days but the Ben last does look a little pointier than expected but hopefully not overly so

Since this is the New Rey in size 8 and it's way too tight, will the Olfe in the same size be a better choice for me? I normally wear UK size 8F in Grenson, Cheaney, Barker and C&J.

Hello Schweino,
I too wear UK 8 and regular width in most cases but had to go for 8.5 with both the Meermin Olfe and Ama lasts. Ordered my first pair, a single suede monk on the Ama last from the Classic line, in 8, and it was definitely too small. I would tend to advise you to move half a size up, too.
Best,
Christopher

Thank you for your helpful comment. I wonder if the shoes won't be too long if I size up half a size. I do own a pair of double monks on the Hiro last in size 8, and altough they are not a great fit for my feet they seem okay length wise. I did just put 'em up for sale on the B&S forum though because they feel as if my heels won't sink in deep enough.

I also own a pair of derbies on the new rey last, and these do fit my feet pretty well, although a bit snug, but nothing to worry about.

I guess Im not having any luck yet with finding my perfect Meermin last.

Just spoke with FedEx- they wanted to know what the toe caps were made of and if they were a part of the shoe? Sounds like I'll receive them tomorrow. Still now word on brokerage fees.

Any update on the group MTO?

Looks like the pair of shoes Luisa said would be ready to ship failed quality control so it'll be another 20 days before they ship.  I suppose it's good that they didn't send shoes that looked like the pair above but it'll be tough to wait nearly another month.

Any real life photos of those? LIGHT BROWN CALF Monks

Wow that's rough.. I don't think mine will ship until NEXT Monday.

I'm trying to figure out how far along my order is as well. It was placed Jan 23rd and status changed to initiated on the 24th, but haven't heard anything back since. I've been trying to add shoe trees to my order but they've yet to reply to my emails.

Good luck.  I'm afraid they've become too popular too fast.  I'm okay with waiting but they're going to have to find a way to ramp up production while increasing quality control if they're going to have a future.  I've seen many business fail from this kind of thing.
