Awesome to know, thanks for the info, will email direct rather than through site when they get back next week.

Have any 2nd run brown museum calf buyers heard anything from Meermin yet? An ETA?

They look absolutely stunning. Already seriously considering an mto oxford version of that light tan and red lining combo for next spring/summer.

Personally I am yet to be dissapointed by Meermin. But then again I've only ever purchased one pair (LM).

Just noticed that the heels are starting to split on my Museum Calf MTO. Have worn them less than 10 times. That's my second Meermin pair this is happening to.

I doubt they'll send one pair all the way to China to be rebuilt but you never know

Hey mate,

 

I've emailed Pepe about a week ago. Will let you know when I know. 

 

Cheers,

It's not too bad at the moment, but I hope it doesn't deteriorate any further.

Ozzy -- the boots look great! I love the dark green lining.

Going to order two pairs and take the leap

I don't own a proper pair of brown shoes so I thought these two would fill the void nicely. I already have a pair of black cap-toe that I love very much and has similar shape. Also already own a pair of chocolate suede chukkas

Classic line in Hiro last

http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=4071

Handgrade in the New Rey last

http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2353

Do you guys think the colors and shoe are too similar? I wanted a darker brown for suits and the Classic line did not offer one except the one with the medallion on the cap-toe that I am not fond of.


I take 8.5US or UK7.5 .. should I size TTS? I think a 7.5 in both will be fine, and I do not have a slim foot FWIW.
Also, I will be ordering from California. Any heads up would be appreciated!


edit:
I had to look through more photos but it seems Classic line has this in dark brown

Initial photos are like a medium brown. Not reassuring lol

Yeah buying brown online is always tricky, the newer pics were meant to more accurately reflect the products so I am hoping its the dark brown in the newer pics as I agree with you that the initial pics look like a medium brown.  I guess the beauty of brown is you can always darken it with polish etc, although not ideal.  To answer your question though yes I believe there is sufficient difference between the country calf in your first pic and any of the dark browns you may be considering.

Fwiw the sample boot pics I posted a few posts back show a direct comparison between LM light and dark brown, albeit in an unfinished state.
