Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 378

That's what the picture said. Ama v New Rey -- but I don't know for sure, so you might be right.

Okay, let me temper my response: I think there are BETTER lasts than the Olfe. It's a fine last in and of itself, but in comparison with other lasts, I think there might be better.

I had to size up by 1/2 on New Rey though because it's quite sleek and I have a wide forefoot.

The Ben last, on the other hand, based on these comparative pictures below from Chogall, looks pretty decent.

Though I'd welcome TS modifying the Ben further. I'm sure he can take the next MTO to the next level, where others cannot.

Papa, as previously stated, 25 order minimum for this leather is because Ilcea won't supply it in smaller quantities. I think there's enough love for it to get enough orders if you put a group together

 

Apologies on getting the price wrong. 

 

I remember you saying about the minimum order quantity. I was hoping the popularity would result in Meermin taking the risk on ordering the leather before people had ordered shoes. 

 

I may just have to run a group order myself! 

The museum calf would make for a beautiful belt too.

I might email Pepe and see if they are willing to do group MTO in museum calf with a smaller minimum order number. God those look fantastic. So do the hatchgrain wholecuts as well.

I for one would be interested in a second run of the museum calf oxford, preferably with the exact same specs as before.

@bboys, the olfe is beautiful in real life, and most definitely not bulky. Bulkier compared to the vil or new ray sure, but bugger all people can fit in to them!

^I'm sure it's a fine and beautiful last on it's own smile.gif

Have no doubt about that! It's the comparison with the other lasts that matters! How do you find the Ben last?

Ozzy, it's AMA and New Rey. That's my photo.

Gyasih, can you provide some feedback on the lasts? In your opinion, between Olfe, Ben and New Rey, which looks sleeker and more elegant?

PapaRuberry, would be great if you can organize one for those who have missed out, I'm sure a lot of people will appreciate it icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

I would do another museum calf version once the hatchgrain one is finished. Most likely in plum museum calf . Anyone has any idea what other makers makes a shoe like the one below?I know Cleverly's and Bestetti do. Would appreciate some pics biggrin.gif I think they will look awesome in plum museum calf.

Smart. Now everybody who ordered the museum calf in the first MTO run will be interested in the second because there is some variance, and those who missed out in the first would also be interested in this order because it's essentially also made out of museum calf.

Here are some pictures:

The last makes the difference.

One suggestion: For the hatchgrain wholecut, how about five pairs of eyelets instead of six?
