Meermin was out of shoe trees so I'm using a pair of Allen Edmonds trees for now.

You're as bad as me with getting matchy-matchy. Where's the shirt from?

It's a Thomas Dean shirt from Dillards. This is where most of my casual shirts are from with the exception of a few I picked up from Saks Off 5th.

Contacted Meermin because I was afraid I wasn't going to get my black wholecuts before my wedding, they updated me and let me know they are due to arrive in 2 weeks, roughly 10 days before I need them icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I love good customer service

I finally received my double monks that I ordered on December 24th! I must say, they were definitely worth the wait!

I'll upload pictures of them later.

Wow! Why did they took so long? Special MTO or something?

That MTO indeed looks lovely.

I missed the opening post on it, what last is it on?

Guys, for the museum calf group MTO, will it be alright to use the Saphir renovator? Will it strip the finishing?

Once I receive my pair, I'm planning to use the renovator on the whole shoe, and a neutral shoe polish on the toe cap. Is this ok?

Does anyone have the Tan Country Calf Boots? Any opinions on it? and sizing wise?

AFAIK, Museum calf is glazed aniline leather that comes finished from the tannery (instead of dyed and finished at the shoemaking factory, i.e., EG, G&G, etc) so the top coating won't easily come off. This is not to say that it won't be finished again by Meermin but its finish will be sturdier.

Why not just neutral shoe wax the welt and stitching? The key is to make sure the threads stay well waxed and flexible, not making the leather soft and pliable. Water is better than Renovator if the latter is the goal.

I saw a new country boot at Meermins trunk show in Stockholm yesterday. Same leather, differen last. The leather looked very nice.
I am sure you'll be satisfied!

Anyone get shipping confirmation for the Museum MTO?
post #5430 of 11766
Thanks. My goal is to condition the leather so that it would crease well over the years. I usually apply renovator (twice a year), shoe cream (twice a month), and occasionally wax the toe and heel.

For the museum calf, I plan to skip the shoe cream as it'll ruin the color texture.
Just unsure if I should apply the renovator or mink oil.
