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.

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.

Damn that sucks. Seems this is real catch as catch can on sizing.

Well EG and G&G are half size down standard sizing, meermin is full size down similar to say C&J

Well that doesn't bode well for my MTO. I ordered an 8 UK.

Depending on the last, surely?  Considering some of Meermin's are so narrow, that will certainly not always be the case.

Ah true I guess but other than Vil / New Rey I think it should be one size down?

Well, Monkeyface (above) used his normal UK size and is was too small on the Olfe.  I'm just saying if you don't know the last, be careful.

I think his MTO was actually on Hiro, which I believe is wider than Olfe. Sizing really seems to be hit and miss

On the other hand, I don't know anyone that has ordered enough pairs here and could comment on sizing consistencies or the lack of, aka Vass.

Actually, the sizing is a bit inconsistent in my experience.
