Local taxes may vary too!

Pictures to come later (high-res).

 

Malaysian studying in UK here. I'm curious about this. 360euros -VAT is about 284euros. Zarium, what was your cost breakdown? I'm thinking of hopping on the new MTO and have a pair delivered in UK and claim VAT icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'm not sure you can claim VAT on online goods shipped within the EU, unless you'd like to ship it to Malaysia and then carry it back to the UK biggrin.gif

Edit: Just remembered about this procedure, would this work?

Out of curiosity, if they're sourcing the hatchgrain from Horween, would Pepe be willing to do a MTO in Horween shell? I assume there would be a hefty cost associated, but I can only guess at how many here would be interested in one?

Basically boils down to you can claim the VAT back if you bugger off out the country within 3 months of purchase and don't come back for a year!

I want to order the country calf boots (Ron last), but getting the size right seems like a gamble! I'm usually UK7-7.5. I have a pair of loake in uk7 on the capital last (pimlico chukka), which is a snug fit in both width and length.

Now, to make it difficult, I want to be able to some times wear thick wool socks in the country boots. Luisa suggested 7.5. On the other hand, a few people in this thread have said they size down 0.5 on the Ron last, saying it fits big. So.. Trust meermin? happy.gif

Too true.  I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds cordovan slippers somehow amusing (now boys, make sure you don't get that extra-thick, extra-strong, extra impermeable shoe out in the wet now!).

 

I have a couple of pairs of cordovan loafers, but I use them as beaters all year round laugh.gif

Right, Rui last! Always get those mixed up. Did you want a snug fit for your boots? (why cancel?? cry.gifPerhaps safer to just go with UK7 then, so I can still use them even if I can't wear thick wool socks.

I found New Rey just slightly tight in my regular size so went tts in Olfe and half down in Rui to account for the extra width. I cancelled cos I ordered both versions of my group MTO boot and I've got the museum shoes coming on Friday. The other boots were an unjustifiable expense even tho I REALLY want them!!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I am in for it too as long as we are talking about austerity brogue model like the one shown or the existing austerity brogue from Meermin lineup.
