Loves everything except the mushroom toe caps.  Would rather see the stitching instead.

No.
Is that a level surface? The gap under the left heel is pretty bad.

Ah - I suspect the surface is not level as the profile shots don't seem to have the issue, and the camera's position does not change (much, if at all).

NAMOR, price was 250 euros + shipping. I had to wait around two months for this pair, I placed my order before the factory's order book got swollen with SF members. Unfortunately the last was too pointy and small, but Pepe agreed to receive my return and now this pair is being made on Meermin's classic round-toe last. with a few changes. I'll post another set of pics once the pair arrives.

Black oxfords are everywhere, but black suede oxfords are a relatively understated change for anyone wishing for a bit of whimsy.

Color in your pic appears more reddish (oxblood?) than true brown. Cannot wait for your detailed review...literally.  I hope to place an order this week ( if they ever respond to my email), but still want to know your thoughts on fit and quality, as I am able to get the Loake Cannons for US $255 delivered, and not sure how long I might have to wait for these ( assuming it is worth the wait).

I typically wear a US9D and these UK8 fit very well, but I only tried them on briefly last night. A UK8.5 would've def. been too big.

No experience with the new Loake Cannon, but I had the Loake Strand from the 1880 line and I'd rate these higher quality-wise. Calfskin is thicker than I expected, esp. for the price. Grain is very nice and there's a nice depth to the color, i.e. it's not 'flat', despite the fact that there's no burnishing. Color is pretty accurate in my pic; they're more red than they appear in Meermin's stock photo. Mahogany perhaps? I just put on some Saphir Reno and a light coat of Dk Brown Saphit wax before that pic was taken.

I got dinged $70 Customs brokerage/duties/taxes (shipping to Canada), but they're worth every penny at approx. $280 all incl. Easily on par with C&J Benchgrade/Handgrade imo, tremendous bang for the buck if that matters. If Meermin's quality is consistent with these, I can be very happy only buying from their stock shoes and/or MTOs.

Good eye! Nah, those are #13 size Triumph nailed-on metal taps from a UK seller on fleabay. I also use #14s depending on last shapes. They're def. better than the nylon/plastic kind. I have a local guy who can do flush plates for $20, but it's a bit of a hassle getting my shoes to him since I no longer work downtown...

Linea Maestro pairs are hand-lasted and -welted (see Meermin's Vimeo vids) with uppers from Rendenbach. Quality-wise these are better than Edward Green's offerings, which are machine-made. I don't know how they manage to offer so much for so little, but I wager they will be raising prices once more orders pour in. Just like G&G did.
