Meermin has uniform spacing forming two parallel lines which makes them stood out as unnatural.

 

This is great chogall; will send your explanation and the picture to Pepe to ask him to incorporate into the MTO shoe.Thanks!

Can we pls do this with a chiseled toe, similar to TG73? I assume New Ray is the closet last Meermin has for that.

I'm very much in favour of something TG73 like, but New Rey is not the answer. New Rey is much pointier. From their last overview (http://meermin.tumblr.com/image/20983395357), the Ben last looked closest to TG73, but I have not seen it in the flesh.

I think a combination of the Olfe and Ben last will result in something similiar to the TG73.

Looks my shoes are arriving tomorrow. I will hopefully get pictures from my father as they are being shipped to him, but he is coming for a visit next weekend and you'll have better pictures then.

Those samples look kinda pointy - though I'm not sure if it's just the angle. I'd personally have preferred something more rounded, but I think it looks great nevertheless.

Meermin has mostly pointy lasts.

What's the most recent wait time from placing an order to receiving the shoes (in the U.S.)? Is the quoted 30 days over or under the actual at this point?

post #4449 of 11013

Mine were ordered on the 28th of January, and I will be receiving them today. Pretty bang on.

The Olfe looks much more elegant to me than it does in that graphic of the last lineup. That's going to be a tasteful shoe.

Olfe is the bomb last.

Explain this please.

post #4454 of 11013

So it looks like I won't be providing Meermin with Horween cordovan, received a pretty high quote and long time schedule for until the next supply of cordovan is ready.
