Where did, you learn, to punctuate? 

 

Your comma, usage, across the boards, is unique to say, the least.

Do you feel that, because of recession?

Guys, sorry for the late pictures. Here are my Classic DBs in LIGHT brown. The color is very similar to my pictures, but they are quite a bit darker then the pictures on the website. Quite a lovely cognac/brown color. Comfortable, but a bit narrow. These were after 1 full day of wear.

I'm really liking that color, and it makes me think the tan would have been a good choice as well. Now, these pictures have me anxiously awaiting Meermin billing me so that I can look forward to some new double monks (not these). I might order those too though because, actually, if anything, narrow might work for my narrow heels.

The color is gorgeous. Wore them out for dinner with a nice navy SS suit, and the color really prevailed. Definitely got a lot of looks wearing them in Toronto.

Will check with Pepe for updates; he must be super busy since he has not yet replied to my last email to him.

Just received my shoes this morning!

 

2 weeks ago, I made a last minute request for Meermin to change my black wholecuts to a captoe, and told him I'd need them by this weekend. 

 

Here they are!

 

Hiro Double Monks and Hiro Cap Toes. Compared to my Carmina Simpson Cap Toes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a few imperfections on the shoes, and I can see why some SF members would demand an exchange. For me, it just isn't worth the hassle, and the quality of materials used on this line IMO far exceed that of Loake 1887, Barker, Cheaney, and AE, while the finishing is comparable. Also, IMO the Hiro last works much better on the monks than it does on the on the cap toe. 

 

I still very much prefer the aesthetic details of my Carmina cap toes over the Meermin version, but they are over twice the cost. 

 

For 135 Euros afer vat, these are an insane deal. I'm glad I can finally see what all the excitement is about.

My penny loafers (light brown calf, size 9.5) shipped today (ordered Feb 27). I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on the quality of construction, but I would be happy to take some detail pics once they arrive, which could still be some time from now.

I skimmed the thread too, but couldn't find much either. Anyway, I'm looking forward to your pictures!

Danite, imo. Full rubber > Combo of rubber/leather.

I want to buy hiro double monk.
When I'm looking at his web side (size chart) I see- 9 UK- witdh 102mm, tall 289mm

Are they size larger than normal ?

Could you tell me 9 UK or 8,5UK will be good for me?

My foot is 27cm long, when I measure like this:

I have 9UK Markowski balmoral shoes, fit me like a glove- almost too small.
My foot looks:

I was just contacted by FedEx asking for help to fill out a customs footwear declaration.
