8.5 Double Wide.  If they don't (they prob don't), than 9 UK Wide.

Thanks for the information, Meermin.

Have one more question. What's the typical delivery time for a pair of shoes to Portugal? I'll be there for 2 weeks and was wondering if they would arrive within 14 days.

And have a question for everybody else. Where would you rate the linea maestro line to Carmina's offerings?

^ Pretty good but not quite up there in terms of leather quality and general build quality. Still nice and the fact they can install sunken toe taps is definitely a bonus for me.

Speaking of which -

Some new Meermins today, snuff suede Austerity brogue. Happy bar an issue on the front left toe with the suede, which I am emailing them about now. Won't get a wear until next week when I'm back from holidays.

Bummer... My order just arrived today and I was happy they didn't charge me on the spot. I guess I'll get the damage in a few weeks...

Anyways, just got two pairs of RTW Classics—the black oxford (http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2033) and the snuff rapello suede (http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2749) in 7.5 Hiro... My first ever dress shoe purchase (I'm in college)! They were fine lengthwise but really narrow at the toes ffffuuuu.gif hopefully it stretches a little bit after a few wears.

Shoes were nicest pairs I've ever owned (but then again, I've never had real shoes before). As for the fit, they were fine lengthwise but really narrow at the toebox ffffuuuu.gif hopefully it stretches a little bit after a few wears.

The calf leather Carmina uses doesn't seem to be all that good, and LM are hand welted while Carminas are machine welted and gemmed - I think LM is up there with Carmina's calf offerings, if not better. Shell is a whole different story though...

LM MTO is better than Carmina IMO, despite one out of two dissatisfactory experience regarding museum calf leather usage. Otherwise Meermin is very generous and flexible with customizable options.

does meermin have more styles than are currently online though (so i dont have to do MTO)? because if I have to get MTO carmina, it makes the price basically on par with C&J and Carmina RTW options.

Think their tumblr has more options. In my experience they'll also make a style in a different leather without MTO charge. Dunno what you could be looking for that isn't on the site in some form tho

Oh okay I didn't know about the leather switch for no charge, that makes more sense now.

Don't hold me to that info tho, my order was a year ago, things may have changed!

MTO with last change only I think. Would run you an extra 150 Euros

Right, that was my understanding as well.
