It is sad to hear the delay, hope the quality of museum calf would be fine....

Why do you regret? Do you not like suede, QC or something else?

Thanks for the update Terror. Did Pepe share where they were sourcing the remaining plum museum leather from given that Iicea has gone bust? Or more of the case whereby Llcea is still supplying the leather, but was delayed?

Curious as well, since I just bought the snuff rapello suede chukkas.

I, for one, really loved them: the last is imho more elegant than the Hiro and works well with the wholecut type. The color is nice but alas more difficult to 'dress up' than darker or lighter suede. The suede quality is ok but you shouldn't expect top notch suede at this price point.

 

Awaiting the size 10 after returning my 9.5's which were too small.

Are you thinking of a country boot or something else?

How do you guys comment on Class line of Meermin and Loake 1880 series? In term of quality and price-to-value.

 

Since the price of both are similar, i am considering my first pruchase on Meermin.

 

Thanks.

I have only positive experiences. Recommend. Have two pairs for and just ordered third pair. All of these have been classic line shoes.

I have no meermin but as far as Loake 1880 goes they are really nice shoes, they are usually more expensive than meermins though.

 

What Im assuming is that AE/loake 1880/meermin are all of similar quality, so to me the decisions seems more to be one of pricing and what models you want/fit well.

post #8262 of 11321

Along those lines, I'd mention Jalan Swirijaya. Generally only available in Japan or South Korea but you can get them from Unipair on SF. Costs a little bit more than AE or Loake, but the finishing and construction is much better. I've not had my pairs long enough to speak to the quality of the calf leather (only that it isn't corrected).

 

Can't speak to Meermin, but I just got confirmation that my order has been completed (the shell split toes) and I'm now awaiting a bill.

post #8263 of 11321

Generally speaking most would consider the Meermin linea maestro line to be on par with Loake, meermin excel and newer and more contemporary designs too where as loake tend to stick to the classics.  The classic line I would say is not as good as the loake 1880 range or AE but its also notably cheaper in price as well so.  I have no complaints with my classic range, happy with the purchase but the above is how I would compare them and I've seen others make the same comparisons previously in the thread.

I have just received my first pair of Meermin shoes a pair Black calf tassel loafers. I am happy with the purchase, only having worn them once I can not attest for longevity but initial thoughts are very good. They did break my feet down after a few hours though! I won't be going sockless for a while.

Anyone got a estimate of pricing for a pair of MTO Shell Cordovan brogues on the Rui last? Or just how much they charge for Shell on a MTO in general.
