Thanks for the suggestion guys; most likely this will be a personal MTO but if anyone is interested I may do one but but this time a small group MTO (10 people max).

But this will only be initiated once the previous MTO is delivered

I'd be keen for a EG dover style split toe in the hatch grain personally.

Your opinion is wrong. Please stop spreading misinformation. It is NOT ornate and provides different benefit than hand sewn welted construction.

Same, but not placing any order until I receive my current MTO.

EG Dover style Norwegian Split Toe with folded in stitch apron (as oppose to Vass folded our stitched) and full Norvegese construction in hatch grain. Just not sure how good the material is for Meermin but EG skimped on material, specifically toe stiffener, toe stitching, and of course GY machines welted/gemmed construction.

Fuck cordovan. Tasteless iGent leather used in every kind of shoes nowadays.

Hey I'm looking for a comparison between Meermin's and Alfred Sargent's snuff colors. I don't trust the website pictures to give an accurate description. Can someone link both colors if one has a photo with realistic colors of each?

 

Another question: what are the suede colors in brown that meermin offer? I know there is the snuff and dark brown but is there something else like espresso as well?

I think you're deliberately confusing ornate with ornamental and being deliberately argumentative. As I've now stated twice; I KNOW it serves a functional purpose in the construction of the shoe. Stating it to be ornate is my OPINION. Have a word with yerself

I bought the Chuuka boot in the Rui last. It seems a good buy for the money, good construction and nice suede
post #4403 of 11986
I was choosing between this to the similar in price Loake Pimlicos, I think the meermin is a better option

Do you mind posting photos? I was looking to purchase the boots as well. Just wanted to see what they looked like beyond the stock photos. Also how is the sizing?

Pros and cons on the york sole? I've got no experience in it but was thinking of an MTO out of the below with 2 lacebars and york or rubber sole, snuff suede.

Today I wrote again to Sandro,

 

as I told him I don't mind waiting from 3rd of january IF I know how long I'm going to wait, I've been told 3 times in the past 3 weeks my shoes would have been shipped, none of the times that was true.

 

Now, if you tell me : "look we are in a messy situation, please accept my apologies but it's going to take other 3\4\5 weeks", I've no problems...I mean I have other shoes is not that I can't live without them, but if you tell me "I'll ship them to you in 3 days" and than you don't tell me anythign I think I kind of have the right to be bit nervous about it, expecially when you got my money the 1th of february!

 

I believe many of you guys are in the same situation , just wanted to share my frustration about it!

 

Vittorio

Yeah with Meermin you have to wait and just have the mindset to deal with these kinds of uncertainties. They offer exellent customer service and service per se considering them being a Spanish company with a Spanish way of doing business. The mindset needs to be the same as with AS: the shoes arrive when they are ready. If one is in a rush, shop for RTW C&J, Trickers, AE or Alden.

Well I'm Italian and probably that's why I have a hard time with "spanish" or "italian" way of doing busines, being rased in a "german" way it simply pisses me off :-) I don't really mind the waiting, I mind the misleading of "the shoes are ready next week" and not getting a mail the next week with written "sorry we are late"... anyhow... let's hope they arrive soon

post #4409 of 11986

I feel your pain. Just hang in there! It will be worth the wait especially if it is an MTO you are waiting for.

http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1949 would these be appropriate for office work with a suit (not started the job yet and have no experience in an office before.

 

Also, sorry for asking this as i know its probably been asked a million times before but the search function is useless. How do they fit? Im size 8.5uk.
