That's the pair that I've gotten so far and you're right, the look in person is amazing. It's refined and professional without being agressive. I had ordered the regular stitched oxford, but because of QC issues they weren't going to be able to ship it in time for a trip I was taking. Instead, Luisa offered to express ship the reverse stitched in their place and I'm very glad it worked out that way. I now have the dark brown double monks and the black wholecuts from the classic line on order as well as the burgundy side stiched oxford from the maestro. I'm definitely a fan.
Anyway, good luck on the next order.
I wanted to go Maestro too on the beginning but honestly in my work environment I'll be the one with the nicest looking shoes also with the Classic line, so I rather save 100 euro and buy my self 2 handmade shirts (I got a guy who makes them totally mto for 55 euro,they still forever and fit like a glove) .
I also wanted the stiched ones, but dunno the stichless kind of grew on me while I was choosing so I went for the feeling! Did the right thing they look awesome!
I really believe if you can't go for C&J Lobb or EG , Meermin are the nicest looking shoes around (I really don't like Vass style and Carmina is bit more "old" looking to me..)
dunno Meermin is elegant but modern, I guess everyone has his own idea in those matters though not really something you can say one is right or wrong!
