Timo, most likely a modified Hiro or Olfe to make it sleeker; I'm seeking Pepe's advise on which one will be more suitable to be modified.

I'm thinking of using the museum calf as an insole for the shoes;again have to consult Pepe on whether this is possible but was inspired by a G&G in hatchgrain that I saw in another thread.

Have a few other ideas but will run it thorugh Pepe first smile.gif

I think I'll sit this one out -- don't like a plain toe nor broguing on the captoe.

Ok, guys, for the plum museum calf MTO I have decided that we should do 2 styles for the adelaide:

 

 

Adelaide 2 (plain with no brogueing ala Carmina )

 

 but will be made similar to this one:

 

 

 

Also, I am thinking of having the soles painted dark red (similar to the plum museum colour) .

 

So far, based on the pre-orders I have, the response have been very encouraging icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif

 

   just for clarity . . . . are we saying plum museum precisely like the carmina above ?

   also, price & last check please. apologies if it has already been discussed.

Will the Adelaide 1 have the peaked heel counter aka G&G St James II?

I don't understand why you're jimmies are so rustled over creasing.

 

Are shoes not supposed to crease if MTO??

 

Please shed some light on this.

There are creases from normal wear and tear, and there are creases from improper sizing.

 

Worst case, there are creases from not-so-good manufacturing.

 

My MTO has the the latest, which I mind but couldnt give a fuck to resolve.

I mind too and have resolved to try not to give a fuck! Shoes crease, I get that, I like that! But looking older than my 20 year old onslows when I've walked half a mile in them is less than I expect for over £300 with a 4 month wait. If I've mis-sized, my bad. I still fail to understand why my larger foot causes serious creases all the way along the side of the shoe while my smaller foot has what I would expect of regular creasing. Anyway it is what it is. I'll live with it and move on

+1, not sure about the broguing.

Also waiting for an answer to the heel counter.

Thanks

Just received my firat pair of Meermins and I must say it was a disappointment! The suede on the left shoe seems to be damaged as it has become thready and is of lighter color than the right one!

Same was true on my suede oxfords I bought some time ago. They said it's the norm, and quite common on most of their suede shoes, and for 160 euros, I couldn't say much.

That is shitty QC!! I am a fan of Meermin, but this makes no sense.

"Pepe Albaladejo - Meermin

9/6/12

to me
Hi Mr ...

The difference of the different pieces of leather is due to the finishing of the Suede we have made to the shoes, maybe you don't like it at all but is not difficult to get an uniform tone using a Spray."
