So, quality wise, how's the classic collection compared to AE? It's much cheaper than AE if we are only talking retail price.

Meermin Mallorca Shoes - Page 43post #632 of 153826/5/12 at 1:23pmpost #633 of 153826/5/12 at 1:55pmpost #634 of 153826/5/12 at 2:34pmQuote:Originally Posted by The Upright Man
Received my Meermin dark brown calf double monks yesterday and they are fantasic!
The colour is very close to that of the website - the 'reddish' hue only really seems to come out under artificial light. I'll be able to provide a better assessment of their true colour during the day after I take them on their madien voyage tomorrow if anyone is interested?
As for fit, I can only comment on the difference from loake's 'captial' last but there is less room in the vamp/upper. This is great for me as I have to wear inserts in my loake strands - I guess I have a relatively flat foot. The length is spot-on for me also (my strands are a UK 7 as are the meermin double monks).
I would also like to echo everyone else's comments regarding the quality of service from Meermin. The guys are extremely friendly/helpful and the shipping (to Australia) took 6 business days! Highly recommended.post #635 of 153826/6/12 at 2:41amWell they've just arrived and i have to say for the money handed over they have exceeded my expectations!!
Quality wise i'd put them between the C&J Bench & Handgrades, the colour has again exceeded my expectations. I'll leave others to judge the finer elements of quality regarding leathers and finishing but if i'm being honest from very much a "laymans" perspective i cant really see much difference in finishing from my Handgrade Belgraves or Grenson Masterpices. Fit wise i'm a 6.5UK E in C&J Handgrades and these fit virtually the same being a 6.5UK too, being very much the same in length with plenty to spare in the toebox.
I just hope these pictures convey how really nice these shoes look for the money paid and i'm so pleased i took what basically was a punt based upon photos here and the fact by all accounts they are related to Carmina's.
It must also be said that Meermin (Jose & Sandro) have been a delight to deal with, full marks to them!!post #636 of 153826/6/12 at 3:01amQuote:
Save some money for the Carmina store. They usually have some pairs on sale for as low as €218, and you might happen to like some of them ;)post #637 of 153826/6/12 at 3:16ampost #638 of 153826/6/12 at 3:18ampost #639 of 153826/6/12 at 3:27amQuote:
