Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 401

post #6001 of 11558
What a nonsense! So to get my new pair of shoes to look alike I will have to spray them?!

^Ridicolous answer, and even the right cap toe seems to have a flaw in the center area near stitching.

The problem isn't only the colour but also the rougher nap of the suede in that area that make the difference more evident and is the real defect.

The QC issues Meermin has is what makes me second guess ever placing an order, but the successful MTO shoes are what keeps bringing me back.

People do have to realize that at the price point, I've seen as many cluster fucks. Even EG has its share of QC problem that's ignored by brand whores.

^ That's true. They're very affordable and offer good customer service for shoes of that price point.

It is not a question about value.. To me these shoes are worthless..

To me I'm afraid it's a management issue.  Irregular finishes, mis-aligned toecaps and the like are going to happen everywhere now and then, but the point is what you do about it.  Sending it out to the customer is just wrong.

 

The problem is two-fold I think: firstly, the customer is always waiting for the shoes for a while because they carry so little stock (in a way, most of their shoes are "made to order"!).  So calling their shoes as seconds when they've already waited two months, and starting the whole train again, is a pain.  But also, as a small company I think they're falling to the temptation of sending seconds out regardless in the hope that not all customers will return the shoes, and they won't have to shell out on replacements.

 

Making all their shoes in China, at least partly, makes a long logistical chain to try to order for demand instead of keeping a buffer of stock, and and punting obvious seconds at customers, all says to me that they're struggling to maintain their finances and cash-flow.  Given their general courtesy, I can't think that it would just be contempt for the customer!  I fear for this company - the igent generation are making their business, but can just as quickly abandon it if they keep taking the piss.

That turned me off to Meermin completely.

Thanks for posting that, and the absurd customer service response. They don't deserve my hard earned money.

Yes, there are 2 going on. I am handling the plum museum calf MTO while PapaRuberry (Alex) is handling the re-run of the dark brown museum calf MTO.

Yup, it will. It will follow the exact design of the picture I posted biggrin.gif

 

For those who have sent me your information, thank you very much. Do expect a mass email on the total specs of the shoe by this weekend; will be calling Pepe on Friday to discuss the specs but will email him the details so he can go through it again.

It will be on hold until Pepe has made sample shoes out of it (he informed me he wants to try working on the leather as this is their first time handling hatchgrain); once he gives the green light we will proceed with it.It will start a bit later then the museum calf MTO but certainly not after these MTO's are finished. That would be too long of a wait biggrin.gif

I might have to start all my posts with a giant "DARK BROWN MUSEUM CALF MTO" header from now on!

 

Chasing the following people:

 

kwhunter

vriche

lychyrychy

Fiestaplatypus

WiredandTried

 

And I'm also chasing a few others on another forum, and some real life (tm) friends as well.

 

Waiting to hear back from Pepe in regards to the possibility of museum calf belts, as well as an ETA from the tannery, etc etc

 

But thanks to those who have PM'ed me back so quickly with their details. I have 18 people's details so far. Great work everyone. Sorry if I'm brief in the PM's; but there are a lot of you messaging me and unfortunately I have a life outside of SF that needs attending to. 

 

Cheers,

 

Alex
