Too lazy to shuffle through my stacks of magazines but the design isn't new or original.

But whatever floats your boat.

Good looking boots btw, except for the pull tab part.

UPS was doing the custom clearance with a wrong tariff code, and the

 From the last days all the shoes are leaving Spain with the tariff code

6403.59.30.40 (leather shoes with we on the invoice and UPS will

Please if you can inform about it in styleforum it was very grateful for

another costumers.

 

Many thanks

Not my area of expertise, but I'd be surprised if UPS can do anything about this after the fact.  The shoes were taxed at the appropriate rate for the tariff code indicated.  I would demand that Meermin make this right, though.

Thanks for sharing, beautiful shoes by the way.  I'm considering both the single calf and double monks, but I'm a 10E in US sizing. Louisa has advised me to go only a half size down... I'm worried that the shoes will have a bit of extra length to them.

Oh, so for the record, they were catering to your whim all along as these are your designs. Got it.

This is rather disappointing. I am the poster who called UPS and figured out the HTS code to use, in consultation with the UPS expert. The reason that Meermin is now quoting that code and estimating a 5% tariff is due to my leg work. I emailed Sandro with that information. However, I have heard no response on my request to get a refund on the additional $100 charged to me due to the error by Meermin. I emailed Pepe and Sandro twice, asking about a resolution, and noting that this issue is being discussed on styleforum. The fact that they are claiming an error on the part of UPS in inaccurate. It was Meermin who submitted the wrong code, and UPS was simply applying the appropriate tariff. My conclusion is that Meermin customer service is abysmal. You might think that they would show some measure of gratitude, since I saved them a lot of headaches with the proper code. But after two emails, they have simply ignored me and now want to spread the news here about the new correct code. Sigh.

Error on their part to some extent but ordering shoes from overseas means you take some risk as well. No vender should be responsible for any customs / duties / brokerage

No, they're not responsible for the duties, but if they ship internationally they ARE responsible (and solely responsible) for filling in the forms correctly.  It's an error on their part entirely, not "to some extent".  A lesson learned for them I guess - or it should be  But really, blaming the courier, then not giving at least a credit note or something by way of apology/recompense, is really shitty treatment.

I really think they should liase with UPS and get them to refund the buyers.

Even if duties and taxes are not their responsibility, if it arises as a result of their error, they should set it right for those who are affected.
post #6551 of 11761
I don't get why Meermin doesn't just refund you. The financial costs of that are nowhere near the costs of the bad rep they're getting around here.

Just received my Museum calf MTO, but they turned out to be too small. If anyone wants to buy them, let me know. They're size 10uk.

I agree with this. I was one of the people who got hit with the exorbitant fee. Better for Meermin to extend a credit toward next purchase. It's a goodwill gesture and an incentive to buy more shoes. They are in business, after all, to sell shoes.

Did you move up or down or just go with your normal size? I'm an 8.5 US and size a UK 8 in G&G TG73 and EG 888. I'm a bit concerned that I should have gone down a full size instead of my usual half.

I used my normal size. My Meermin loafers fit fine, so Luisa said I should take a UK10 for the Hiro last as well. Slightly pissed off, as the Hiro is a lot narrower, especially in the toebox. Next time I'll go up half a size.
