I've been eyeing this pair for a while now. Can someone comment on whether the colour is somewhat darker like on the meermin website or as the photo above? Also, any idea of brands- lasts I can try on to get an idea of the fit would be helpful.
Thanks in advance
That color is accurate when in daylight, but they do come off as dark brown like on the website when indoors.
My tassel loafers arrived last week, and I finally got a chance to wear them, as the weather is great today! All in all the whole process took 1,5 months.
The loafers look absolutely amazing, the color and suede are very nice. The construction quality is definitely not what you'd expect from €170 shoes, it's much, much better.
The last is a little narrow, especially in the toebox area. They fit a little snug when I put them on this morning, but they've stretched out a little during the day, and they fit perfectly now. If I sized up half a size they probably would've been too big.
Dang now I need a pair of those. Cant decide between the suede and the leather! :( did you pay any duties when they got to you?
I had a hard time deciding too! I'm sure the leather ones are very nice as well. I live in the EU, so no duties for me, just the standard 21% VAT.
Ok thanks. I think Im gonna get the suede ones. Do you have any shoes on the Hiro last? Kind of wanted a more sleeker shoe than the Hiro.
Depends on the brand: some makers (C&J, JL, EG and GG) use E as "medium" width, but their lasts tend to be on the narrower side to start with. An Edward Green UK "E" is in my experience a lot narrower than, say, an Allen Edmonds American "D". Perhaps these more upmarket makers equate slim with stylish, and so err on the narrow side.
Others e.g. Church's, Cheaney, Barker, Loake, Grenson etc etc, use "F" as medium and "E" for narrow. Personally I also find Church and Cheaney's "F" on the slim side. Last vary, of course. Oh, and Tricker's shoes come with numbers - 5 is medium, 6 wide, etc. And John Lobb, although they use "E" for medium, then use "EE" instead of "F" for wide. You'll also see FX (Barker for instance), meaning not quite wide, but a generous medium, and EX for a stingy medium. But in general, for all those mid-market brands, "F" is medium and "G" is wide, and unless it's sized American, "E" is definitely narrow. Church's are the only one of those I can think of that even make a narrow "E" fitting as a matter of course.
So it's a bit of a minefield. But I'm pretty sure if Meermin say "E", they mean narrow as in the UK, or medium as in the meaner makers (!), and definitely not wide, as in the US measurements. Anyway, ask them...
