When did you get your double monks?  I know Meermin was having some QC issues about a month ago but thought they were pretty well cleared up at this point.  Maybe that's just wishful thinking since I got a pair in today and haven't had a chance to wear them, yet.  I'll definitely post if they do end up having problems.

Just wanted to let you know that I finally received my shoes last week. Meermin apologized for the delay and they sent me the exchange pair via FedEx Express. I really hope that this was a singular issue. Seeing all those great pictures, I can barely resist ordering another pair soon. However, I will first need to check the current pair regarding possible squeaking or sole splitting issues (as this obviously has not been completely resolved so far).

 

Best regards

got hit with a $174.50 fee from fedex of which $168.00 is duty. The price of the shoe is marked at 448. It seems like their may been in error in calculating the duty (i hope), because 30% seems high.

Exactly one year ago, I sent Meermin $532 for a pair of MTO jodphurs which were eventually exchanged for a pair of MTO double monks.
Add the $168 and the CA use tax bill i got hit with ~ $50.

Im looking at $750 for that pair of Meermin which is unfucking real

you're right, i missed that on your list.... 

I didn't get hit with any CA use tax bills but I did get a letter from state of CA saying they are aware I have been importing shoes and I owe the use tax.... due and payable by April 15!

^ likewise. since i returned the jodphurs, i shoudnt have to pay use tax on them. it should be fun trying to prove that.

Whoa!! Have they charged you for both pairs in that calculation? Puts VAT in perspective! Proxy anyone?

I would love an update on the museum calf MTO. Some pictures of the process?

I recall the total fee being about 10% including the Fed Ex fee.

If you check the site:

http://dataweb.usitc.gov/scripts/tariff_current.asp

This is the closest number I found (quick search) for duty description

64035960 Footwear w/outer soles and uppers of leather, not cov. ankle, n/welt, for men, youths and boys (Begin Effect Date: 10/31/2012)

Shows the fee of 8.5%
