Has anybody purchased these light brown calf double monks? If so, can they please post pictures. I'm curious about the colour in real life...lighter, darker, as uniform, etc. as the picture on the website. http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1950

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

In italy we say something like you can have the bottle full and the wife drunk ...

That may literally be the best saying I've ever heard.  I'm going to find ways to use it. lol8[1].gif

I've been looking at these pretty hard, myself.  The only thing stopping me is the question of what they'll go with.

Anything and everything. There's probably nothing that they wouldn't go with. Style is pretty good. Color is easy.

Mine are shipping Monday. I will have pictures in the next little while if you can wait and really want them. Otherwise, looks like a beautiul shoe.

I'd love to see any pics you care to post, especially showing what colors you're matching them with.

Thanks. That would be great.

I got my first pair of Meermin shoes in this morning and now I understand why so many people are crazy about them.  I had ordered two pairs, brown double monks and the black cap-toe oxford, a month ago and was hoping to have them for a trip to New York I'm taking in a few days.  Unfortunately, the double monks weren't ready and the oxfords didn't pass quality control so I thought I was SOL.  However, when I explained my situation, Luisa from Meermin took the initiative to offer the black reverse stitched oxford in it's place so that I could at least have one pair in time.  I took her up on the offer and I'm very glad I did.  The look is very refined, the leather quality is top-notch, and the Hiro fits like the last was molded for my foot, straight down to my rather high arch.  They came without any of the problems I've seen from other reviews as well.  To make things even better, Luisa shipped them Fed Ex International Priority so they were at my doorstep in less than 51 hours from the time they were sent.  Considering the cost of shipping, Meermin may have lost money on my order but still went the extra mile to make sure I was satisfied.

 

I still believe that Meermin needs to focus more on quality control based on the reviews and the fact that my original order is still incomplete.  This can only help their reputation and sales.  However, based on the level of service I received, Meermin has a very loyal customer in future.  In fact, I'll be ordering the Hiro black wholecut and the New Rey burgundy side-stitched oxford today along with some Saphir products. These shoes are well worth the wait.

Could somebody post the contents of the MTO pdf that was referenced earlier in the thread please? Apologies if my searching skills aren't up to snuff, but I can't find it.

Also, is it correct to assume that changing the last of an existing model is subject to the MTO charge?

Thanks.

Changing lasts, or basically anything that would be considered MTO, is an extra 100 Euros.  If you want a wide fitting or any kind of adjustment, that goes up to 150.

 

So basically MTO starts at 360 Euros inc. VAT, or just under 300 without, not including trees or shipping, for regular calf in standard (bench made) goodyear welt.  If you want a non-standard fit, trees, and shipping, you're starting at about $500 without VAT.

Thank you!

It's a shame that none of the plain black cap toes come in the Olfe last. How accurate have people been finding the sizing charts on the site? Perhaps I could fit in a New Rey and spare myself the MTO wait.

Your profile says you have a EEE width fitting.  That's an H in English, and I'm not sure what in Euro-speak.  The New Rey looks very narrow indeed, and considering that Pepe told me none of their regular lasts would fit my (E) feet well at all, I think it's MTO and then some, or nothing!

My feet measure 104mm across (which jives with the New Rey sizing chart), so I was off by a bit LOL.

That said, my most comfortable shoes are 10E Tramezzas. One of my other pairs are B width, but in that case I sized up to a 10.5. I'll go with Pepe's recommendation ultimately, but I reckon that I'm not any wider than average.

In my view don't under any circumstances go tts in New Rey if you have wide feet. I have borderline narrow and tts had some serious breaking in to do. Size up or go with a different last
