If I was you I'd get them in both UK 9.5 and 10 and then return the pair that doesn't fit. Ofc if you're from the US of A it's a hassle with the returns and also painstaking expensive.

 

Comments based on personal experience from the AE 5-65 in B width and Meermin New Rey, Olfe and Ama.

Thanks. My 10.5Ds are pretty snug, so I'm thinking 10 is probably the best bet. Return shipping sounds daunting..

snug length-wise or width-wise? fwiw, i am somewhere between a 10.5D and 10.5E on the AE 5 last (D just a bit narrow for me), and i have a pair of 9.5 meermin in the ama last that fit well. a size 10 would have been too large. you can email meermin for sizing help if you haven't already. i had a lot of trouble with getting a correct recommendation based on their "trace your foot and send a scan" method, and instead took their advice based on my AE size.

I am wearing 8.5d for alden barrie last and find the uk8 hiro double monk just fit. I am sure Uk8.5 would surely be too large.

Just bought a Carmina uk8 in rain last and find the uk8 simpson last also ok to me. My question is, what size shall I get for the new rey last of meermin.

Snug wise. 

 

Great, I'll email them today. Thanks!

Carmina dark brown (oxford, left) vs meermin dark brown (double monk, right).

Not a great photo, but colour relativity is reasonably accurate.




Edit: better picture of meermin dark brown captoe after a quick polish.

Remember that the Hiro is a little smaller than the Ama. That's why I'd personally take both sizes and return the one I don't need. That's enough to establish one's size for all the Meermin lasts.

Some updates on the plum museum calf MTO. Below are the pictures of the samples shoes; I think I am changing my order to the single monk as to me personally they look fantastic on the Olfe last icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Delivery is expected in November (due to a delay in the leather) so hopefully everyone will get their shoes then.

 

With regards to the hatchgrain MTO, the new last has been sent to a lasting factory for several sizes; bear in mind that the new last is similar to the Vass U-last so it will look super sleek. smile.gif

I'm sorry to have to rain on you cheerful shoe parade. 

 

I have been looking for a stylish briefcase in good quality leather and I came across this from Meermin http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2852 which I find highly appealing. Does anyone have experience with Meermin bags and briefcases? If so, could you make a qualified comparison to any established brand within the leather goods market? I.e. Mulberry, The Bridge or something similar.

 

Thanks.
