you wont be able to strip aniline dyed through and drum press coated leather such as museum calf with renovator or other stronger wax stripper.

This may be nitpicky, but how come Meermin doesn't move the imprint on the bottom of the sole? After a few wears, all of that gets scratched off and disappears. Or do you all wear shoe taps to prevent this from happening? I'm kind of sad that there is no more imprint on my double monks anymore.
Was hoping that the Museum MTO would be different since it's a LM shoe and maybe they would've imprinted it somewhere else like other shoemakers do so it won't disappear after a few wears.
Not even had that!!
I hastily slipped them on to gauge the fit, and from that one time they seem to fit me quite similarly to a pair of Vass U last shoes. Snug, but not tight. I believe they'll break in very nicely.
Haven't scrutinised much but they look stellar, and I really couldn't ask for any more.
Now I just need a special occasion to wear them...
Huge shout out to terrorsquad for organising this. I really, really appreciate what you've done, and the next time we meet lunch's on me!
I'll take a few pics of mine soon.For those who have not yet received any form of notification by tomorrow, please PM me and i'll sort it out with Pepe ASAP.
Looking forward to organizing the next MTO special order with Meermin (in the works actually); hope the next group is as awesome as the group that participated in the museum calf MTO
Gents, has anyone with black shoes from Meermin in either line experienced issues with the edge/heel dressing? I got caught in a heavy rain shower and when I got home I gave the whole shoes a wipe over with a damp cloth. To my surprise a great deal of the dressing came off particularly from the heel of both shoes. You can see the brown stacking underneath! Help!?
Just uses edge dressing or shoe cream to re color them. Or if you want to go all out, sandpaper them at 200+ grid before using edge dressing or black dye.
