Any word on where the plum museums are at in the process?

Woot! My snuff suede double monks are ready to ship and have been paid for (less than a week after placing order). Maybe this means they are in stock, so if you've been on the fence now might be a good time...

For those of you who have ordered recently - RTW, not MTO - what turnarounds are you experiencing? Skimming recent posts, it looks like 30-45 days from order to delivery? Anyone seeing better or worse than that range?

My first Meermin purchase was super easy. I placed an order on Tuesday 9th and received on the Wednesday 16th. This was shipping to the UK. I did initially try and discuss an MTO with Pepe, email replies were a little sporadic, but having thought I should probably try and get a last dialled in I placed an order for 2 pairs of Classics an 8 & 8.5. I checked available stock levels with Luisa and have always receive a reply in 24 hours. Once order was placed, invoices were sent through promptly, even Sandro reared his head for this portion of the order! I wanted to change the delivery address post order, both Luisa and Sandro confirmed this had been updated and the UPS link duely arrived.

Shoes are great value, suede is nice and consistent, the nap doesn't all run perfectly one way & one pair had a tiny knick in the binding but this was directly underneath a lace so I don't see any cause for complaint. I wore the 8's today and they are a bit of a squeeze so I've switched to the 8.5's. I like bit a roomy shoe. 8's now on EBay.

On the whole I've had a really easy buying experience - Luisa's English is much better than my Spanish but I did find myself sometimes having to ask a question twice to get an answer. But if she'd asked me to write to her in Spanish I'd be lost so an extra email, and a bit of patience, is worth it.

Pics!

It really depends - you can get a reasonable estimate on when the particular model you want might ship by emailing Luisa. My first pair was ~40 days, this one is looking like 7 or so.

Maybe if you're not the patient type, it's good to just ask what's actually in stock in your size - they don't necessarily tell you when you order unless you ask, and the website gives no indication of what's there, and what will have to come from China.

Ordered RTW boots; I don't know if they wait to produce boots so they are ready for fall or something? It's been 2 months. 19 days ago I was told they would ship in 15 days, but they didn't. Anyway, just want them for fall so I don't mind too much.

Please post pics of them when you get them!

I'm somewhat skeptical about the listing which is why I chose to pose the question to the community.

Many thanks,

Val

I just came across a similar listing with some double monks listed as Elton last, the outsoles also look pretty different. Any ideas on authenticity, they are listed as seconds? Have no intention of buying but I was curious and couldn't find anything on even a google search.

I received a pair of Navy Suede Derbies in around 3-4 business days from ordering (I enquired if they were in stock and they were - hence the quick turn around)

 

If it's something seasonal (and current), or a model you've seen recently on a twitter/instagram feed, it's likely to be a short turn-around, but anything else can be quite long.

I tried to ask, but the conversation was going nowhere. When I ordered my double monks, I asked if the black calfs where in stock. They replied and said it takes about 30 days. I tried to inquire about the other double monks, but the response was "it takes us 30 days to make them". I just assumed that they didn't have my size in any DB model in stock (which would be very weird).

I don't know if it were a communication error or what, but I think I was very specific that I wanted to ask about stock levels.

Yeah thats strange,, when I enquired into some brown captoes in X size, I got a response the next day saying unfortunately that size was out, the next available size in stock was Y or the 30 day spiel.  I thought that was pretty helpful.

post #6868 of 11029
It took me about 20 days from my order started. And when my order was ready to ship i changed my order and took 15 days after that. All pretty close estimates.

Also got the snuff suede loafers any one have any recommendations for suede care? I already have some scuffs. I'm pretty clumsy.

Took me roughly 2 weeks from ordering to receiving these. I'm pretty happy with them, although they're slightly smaller than regular English eights. I'm sure they'll work just fine after I've walked a couple of blocks in them. I'll definitely try Meermin again. Maybe it's time to order now if I'd like mtm winter boots?

I hate all of you that can fit in non-MTO sizes.

That is all.
