This is from their tumblr page.

Yeah, I've seen that one, but I think a person posted the Olfe a few pages back and it looked much skinnier, I thought it was the new ray, so I just wanted to confirm

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!

Sizing question: Anyone comment to how Olfe compares to Carmina's Simpson last, roughly the same?

Maybe, my jodphurs in NR fit great so i would prefer that.

Simpson is more narrow, IIRC I wore a 10.5UK in Simpson compared to 10UK Olfe

Thanks G! I'll hold fire until I get my boots and save a potentially expensive mistake!
On the subject of boots: Anyone had shipping notification for Austerity yet?

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)

Has a tradgedy befallen Meermin?

 

This would explain why they are unable to answer a simple email regarding the shipment of my shoes ordered more than 30 days ago.

 

I wish them a speedy recovery.

Sometimes it seems like they don't respond regularly to direct emails. I have had good results using the web inquiry form.

I have sent several emails using the online form and replying to my original order email.

Maybe try Instagram? They seem to respond there quickly

And I've had issues too but an email to Pepe is usually always answered immediately

The shoes may be great but the service is a joke.  I placed an order weeks ago (after waiting weeks for a reply to my questions) and haven't gotten any invoice, update, etc.  Too many beautiful shoes in the world to reward bad business.  So long, Pepe! 

post #7515 of 11068

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.
