I'm also curious to know how these two brands stack up against each other in terms of craftsmanship, value, etc.. 

Thirded! I'm very much on the fence between the two brands. Although I'd like to bring up the comparison between Kent Wang's handgrade (specifically, the brogues http://www.kentwang.com/shoes/handgrade-brogue.html in brown) and Meermin's Linea Maestro (specifically, model 102461 http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2723 but in dark brown, which could also be described as model 102390 http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2353 but on the olfe last, which according to Al in Philly's exchange with Pepe, will hopefully be available soon as a regular model instead of MTO).

Not me! I got a paltry 13 orders. (With one pending!)
Terrorsquad's the man on point for the Phillip II. Tho to be fair, its such an awesome makeup I think he could have doubled that number

I'm in contact with him to write an interview for the blog, but I don't know if I have so much influence!

However, I know that they're working on new models to fix the low options they offer right now.

Guys! I need your advice!

 

I ordered a pair of double monks, linea mastro range in Feb this year. 

I've worn these shoes about 20-30 times and I notice that my soles are beginning to split!!

 

Have any of you guys experiences this problem before or is this considered a defect?

The gap can be further widened when I pull the soles apart :(

 

As some of you know, I'm involved in the 2MTO ordered (from Terror and OzzyJones), and another 3 in the making..

I hope they don't turn out like this... :(

 

I've emailed Pepe and Luisa...

This is the other pair. You can see a very faint line on the middle of the sole which is not very noticeable.

But when I pull the soles, the line widens and becomes a gap.

 

I always assumed that splitting of the soles won't occur for handwelted soled shoes?

post #5280 of 10141

try not to widen the gap.  rubber cement should fix that.  shouldn't happen.  talk to meermin.

 

at least its only sole split, no gem slipping.

 

p.s., didnt happen to mine, after full 6 months of wear.  def not normal.
