^ I would like the Carmina adelaide with this medallion on the toe. Leave the brogued long wings out of it. It spoils the entire aesthetics of the plum museum.

Here are some examples of Meermin's adelaide ala G&G:

 

 

 

 

 

With regards to last (as some have sent emails asking which last will we go for the MTO), below is my suggestion:

 

Adelaide : Olfe/Hiro

Single Monk : a modified Olfe/Hiro last to make it sleeker, similar to the John Lobb Vale

 

So far it seems a lot of people prefer the G&G look. An adelaide in plum museum calf reminds me of the G&G St James II in cherry smile.gif

I proposed the Carmina adelaide version as the clean toe will highlight the museum calf biggrin.gif It may also help that Pepe's grandfather is the founder of Carmina;maybe he can seek some advise on executing the style.

What size should I get? I wear Alden 9E in barrie last.

Can you check with Pepe about ordering the belt alone? Thanks!

I'd be in for the G&G version.

Any chance of doing it on the Ben?

I like G&G version but unfortunately I have the same style shoes from CJ& Westbroune. I would be in for Carmina version. Do we consider New Rey last? I do support to have the Plum Museum Calf bet as well.

Why people seek to get something G&G with Meermin MTO? That must break Pepe's heart.

Is this similar to 'hermes' effect?

cool that you guys managed another round of museum calf. My next order with Meermin will will probably be an MTO suede punch cap on the Ama last. Just received a pair of classics, and they fit like a glove...

For adelaide I believe plain toe with medallion is by far the best choise. I don't think their current adelaide cap toe is too nice.

 

For single monk they already have burgundy olfe version in production and IMO the style looks quite elegant.

I think the Meermin interpretation of G&G looks much better in suede.  Similar to terror's second post below, the Carmina design would provide a larger, unbroken canvas for the leather to shine through.

My votes for the Carmina as well. Just in general looks more elegant and cleaner. And like states above the museum calf mto group had some bad toe caps.

+1 on the belt, can a brown Museum belt be a stand alone purchase?

Come to think about it, I don't want to take the risk with the captoe either. I have the Museum and the cap could have been done much cleaner. My thought is to eliminate the potential for a mishap. Also would like a Plum Museum belt.

Belts belts belts. I only have 2 suits with belt loops but could probably use a new belt. Haven't buy a belt for a decade now.

p.s., it was both pattern making and clicking problem caused by both new pattern and new material. My suede MTO from last year had no such problems.

Thanks Chogall, so the possibility still exists? This will be new material again and new pattern.
