If I wear a 10.5UK in EG 888/82, what would be my correct size in the Meermin New Rey? 10UK?

 

Thanks,

I don't have direct experience with EG so feel free to disregard this, but I think you got it right.

 

EG82 9.5 is comparable to the Carmina Simpson in 9.0 (this from the Carmina sizing thread).  Simpson fits similarly to the New Rey (at least for me), meaning typically a half size down from EGs = 10UK

I ordered a snuff sued belt with my snuff boots, its a pretty nice belt, seen better, but its great for the price.

I also own a belt in snuff suede. I actually like it a lot. Plus Meermin is one of the few places where you can buy 80 cm belts...

Do they use the same leather for the belts as for the shoes?

But I like the belt; it's a good buy at the price. Hard to comment on quality until I live in it a bit, but the leather is soft and supple and the first few wears haven't produced any odd creases. It's slightly wider than your standard dress belt (35mm = 1.38"), which I like.

 

Thanks for the info, have been looking at getting a black and brown one myself.  Going to need to check that size will fit the belt loops on some of my suit trousers though.

Yes, atleast for the snuff.

fwiw, i wear a UK 10E on the EG 82 and my colleague just bought a UK 10 on the Meermin Hiro last. they both fit me well - i'd say the Meermin is about a 1/4-size larger between the two. with the new rey being a narrower last, i would recommend the same size for eg 82 and new rey. but i can't compare directly.

Thinking of buying these for autmn/winter beaters, anyone have these? Also, how long is the shipping time?

Long waiting times 1 month +

Thought I'd share a picture of my black shell captoes that have now got a good 10+ wears and a couple of months on them. The cordovan still needs some more wearing in and nourishment, but they're getting there!

^would you say they are worth the bucks?

post #8157 of 11564
In comparison to what? As far as workmanship goes - they are spot on. As far as cordovan vs calf I much prefer cordovan. But you don't buy cordovan for what it looks like after 3 months, you want to see what it's like in 3 years. It's about the cheapest pair of new cordovan black shoes you'll get your hands on. For sure Alden/Allen edmonds/carmina shell is better quality. But I think as these continue to wear in and get brushed and reno'd these will be as good as those.
So I think the value is there - though the cordovan isn't as good as other brands

^ this is exactly the answer I was looking for - thanks.

I got a black one and returned it, because I felt it was too wide to wear with suits. Note that the buckle is brushed steel - looked a bit cheap, but maybe that's just me.

I've got a suede belt from them, it's fine but it seems pretty thin and stretchy, like it needs a double facing of leather or something. Looks good though and not all that expensive.
