This is the time frame from ordering to receiving in case anyone is wondering. Around 2 months. Hope it helps. 

 

26 Feb: Ordered

27 Feb: Order introduced into system 

28 Feb: Order initiated

18 Mar: Invoice for payment. "your order will ready to ship within 12-15 days".

15 Apr: Order finished

15 Apr: Order sent 

22 Apr: Order received

 

That's not a good sign.  These are lined suede so they likely will not stretch as much as you'd like.  I'd exchange for a 1/2 size up.

Just received two pair of Linea Maestro shoes (burgundy side-laced oxfords and black wholecut oxfords) which took just over 40 days to deliver and came in perfect condition.  My wife said they looked like works of art and I have to say they're downright sexy.  The only problem with shipping occurred due to the inclusion of a jar of Saphir shoe crème which caused FedEx to require that I send them a toxic safety compliance release form, but that only slowed delivery by one day so no worries.

 

It seems to me that Meermin is getting back on track with delivery times and I've never experience a problem with quality control with any of my four pairs.  Consider me a very happy customer.

Ok, yet ANOTHER sizing question!  I'm placing an order for 2 pairs, one the long wing blucher on the Rui last, and the dark brown double monk on the Hiro last, both linked below.  So my foot measures a touch over a sz US 9 on the brannock, and probably the narrower side of C, which causes the bulk of my issues.  When searching for shoes i generally have to default to an 8.5d and hope it's long enough so as to not crush my pinky toes.  I exchanged an email with Luisa, and I should probably trust the expert, but I wanted to get real world experience from anyone with a very narrow foot.  For reference, in an AE 5 Last, I get a bit of discomfort in the pinky toe, but it's not a terrible fit.  My AE LaSalles on the 8-108 are definitely tighter than any of my shoes on the 5 in an 8.5d, to the point where I'd definitely investigate a new size next time around.  My foot measures about 10.4in at it's longest and under somewhere just under or over 3.5in at it's widest.  

 

Luisa suggested the length in both shoes should be good in a UK7.5 and even suggested insoles for width.  What do you guys think?  I've gone from thinking UK7.5 on both to UK 7.5 on the LWB and UK8 on the Double Monk, to UK8 on both, and now finally back to the 7.5.

If you feet measure a little over 9 with a C width, why don't you just buy AE shoes in 9C instead of 8.5D? I wouldn't be surprised they don't fit you well! Personally, I'm hamstrung by the fact that almost nobody makes a 13.5 length.

 

One of my feet is a half size longer than the other. In my (accidental, see above) experience, I found that down 1.5 from US size was too short, down 1 was the correct length. I also think Hiro is too wide for a C width foot, but maybe an insole would work. I don't have any experience using insoles with dress shoes.

I'd be tempted to try Olfe/New Rey to start if I had a below average width foot.

How is the Museum Calf MTO going?

Fingers crossed for shipment to begin in May?

 

I just got burnt with another pair of MTO's that the maker stuffed up so I am itching to get something in my hands.

Meermin or another maker?

Accessibility to normal D widths vs Cs in B&M stores.

Mantorii.

They got the width right, fucked up the length.

 

I am quietly confident in the Meermin MTO as it is a normal size shoe shoe for them, they are using an existing last and making it to their standard size.

Thanks for the replies. My order experience thus far is as follows:

Placed order 18 April

Paid 24 April, received invoice 5 mins ago

Awaiting shipping confirmation

 

Could this be a new speed record for Meermin?

that´s enviably fast. I ordered an in-stock item on april third, which I was told would ship witihin a week. Now it's been almost three weeks since it "was introduced into the system". Oh well, as long as the shoes are nice I'll cope..
