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
Country calf boot is on Rui last no? Fwiw I was sizing down half on those. (Cancelled frown.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.

The original museum calf is nice (I have Lobbs in them). Now, the plum museum calf is a game changer. It's honestly rare to find shoes in it -- always sold out.

Oh yeah??? can you pm me the detail? thanks!

although I am very envious of those, who have just received the MTO in museum calf, I must say that I am very pleased wtih these wholecuts on the Ama last from the classic line. Fits perfectly out of the box ( much better than my Olfes).
Bought a belt in the same leather which is great too:

If anyone wants to buy a brand new unworn pair of double monks (Hiro last) size 8uk shoot me a PM. Dark brown. Will ship from NYC so you should receive within a couple days. Takes all the risk out of international shipping.

I'd be interested in a plum museum run moreso than the hatchgrain (though there's nothing stopping me from participating in both).  Already owning austerity brogues, I'd be more interested in an adelaide like below (but in plum museum). It comes together nicely in my imagination but....I can try to render a bunch of different models in the plum museum and hatchgrain if anyone would like?
