I'm pretty sure that if you can see the welt stitch for almost the whole forepart of the shoe that's a legitimate cause for complaint. Its going to allow abrasives to get between the upper and the sole and in pretty shot order those shoes will be fucked. With regard to creases, as previously stated, I don't have a problem with my shoes creasing, I have a problem with them creasing in places they shouldn't and to an excessive degree after one wear! As to them being budget, the museum MTO cost about the same as a pair of C&J, Cheaney or AS. Not everyone considers everything below G&G a budget shoe
I was not talking about your shoes, I was talking about some pics posted earlier from some people who was concerned about a small gap where the two ends of the welt meet, often placed on the inside above the heel.
Received my double monks from Meermin and was disappointed.
The heel is uneven with the upper sole, which makes the shoes uncomfortable to walk with.
When stand leaning on the upper sole, only the top portion of the heel touches the ground.
When I lean towards the back, the upper sole is a full half inch above the ground!

And I have complained quite a bit about my shoes!
It makes me happy to see the 2 beautiful examples of museum MTO in their lasted tree'd glory then makes me sad to see my poor little ball sac leather ones. Maybe they'll look better after their rebuild
The last is pretty narrow, especially in the toe box. I usually wear a 10UK, so I ordered the loafers in 10 as well. At first they were a little too small for me, but after a week of wearing them they stretched and they fit perfectly now. Bear in mind that they might turn out to be too small for you, so sizing up half a size might not be a bad idea. I'd send meermin your measurements and ask them what they think.
Newly received Meermin 101482 in Tan country calf, Hiro-last made on double Dainite-sole, which I will use on rainy days during spring, summer and fall. A bunch of pics:

I also took some last comparison pics with the Hiro and some more or less similar lasts, since I know people often find it interesting. All in size UK10/EU44.
