And what makes you think I've never asked?

Standard Merm brouging on the toe still might be a nice touch. Not super keen on calf plain-toes; been there, done that, wrote the movie, sold the rights. Dah well. Opinions...

Finishing is good, one toe tap is not on even and there's a gap (still functional right?) and some wrinkles in leather but nothing major. Also did anyone have a strong chemical smell on their shoes? Mine reek? Maybe just hot LA weather

Also had a shipping address that I wanted to change, thankfully I had not paid or they would have been sent to the wrong address.

That's weird. Did you get a invoice with the shoes or did you take them as a gift? wink.gif

So I've read that meermin manufacture their shoes in china- however on my recent order the shoes say "Made in Spain" on the insole. These are from the classic line.

Yeah, a large bulk of the production is said to be done in China with the finishing in Spain.

Mate sry for my rusted brain but I couldnt get points between your lines... Are you saying if they're indeed made in china then you gonna end up buying Meermin...? Or you gonna be devastated for haven't got enough pairs of meermin...?
IMO even if they're made in china, they're not overpriced. And even if they were made in china, still many people were happy w/ the shoes and thinking ordering more pairs

Lastly, we don't know if the requisition of both Plum and Hatchgrain will run concurrently or consecutively.

Thanks for the briefing!

Nothing to read between the lines- no wonder your brain is rusted! Where it is made is not that important because the product is what it is and the value proposition is clear. Don't know how you somehow drew an inference whether or not i'm going to buy more, but that is probably the result of the severe oxidation in your brain. foo.gif

Haha no pepe sent me an email after shoes were made, though one would think it should be before shoes are made

So, we would be looking at 5 months or so, based on the Museum MTO. I don't know if the hatchgrain requires the same time to be completed or if it's something they have on hand, or easy access.

In for Plum

 

Actually it is possible to run both of the projects at the same time. I know for hatchgrain, there is stock available at the tanneries. However, for plum museum, Ilcea definitely has to make it and it will take a minimum 2 months for them to prepare the museum calf.

 

However, what I worry is that with so many special orders going on (including a re-run of the museum calf by PR), there will mistakes on the part of Meermin. This including the fact whether they are willing to do this too.They are a small outfit really and Pepe is busy running around doing a lot of things. From what I was told, he is the only one supervising MTO orders. Also, for special orders like this, like the previous one, 100% payment has to be made upfront rather then the 50% payment usually reserved for the usual MTO's.

 

But I'll give him a call tonight and see if it is possible biggrin.gif

Would you be able to make Pepe aware of the rerun of the museum calf MTO? I've gotten a few more PMs, and we have 14 interested parties thus far.

Thanks for the reply TS. I am just thinking it would take 8 months to receive them if we wait until after the hatchgrain.

Have we picked a chukka model?.

Ok, I'm 100% not missing one of the museum calf group buys this time. I'm not sure which I'll go with yet, but please do post when each is decided upon for sure.
