This wasn't directed toward me, but I will be more interested if the Jodhpur MTO is in the new modified last.
Don't own any suede pair from either Carmina or Meermin, but Meermin use split suede (cheaper, less refined) for their classic range, and reversed calf (full leather, higher quality, thicker) for their Linea Maestros. Carmina only use reversed calf, and those I've seen in person and looks to be of quite good quality with great luster.
Thanks for the info!
No, not yet. Once I get my boots I can compare the simpson and Olfe myself. I did try the Olfe when I was in the store in Madrid and the 9UK fit me best in both lasts. (I'm also a 10E in the AE 5 Last, so who knows; I have odd feet)
Yeah it is a bit disappointing regarding the service and the mixed experience of people. I think of particular issue is the up and down replying - consumers very much like consistency. I was pretty keen to proceed with an MTO after my first pair of meermins, I got an initial followup from my query from pepe very quickly, but over a week later and no response to my final question. Maybe the online business is just an adjunct to them and they prefer the business from the walk in stores and thats fine but set that expectation.
