Personally, I would rather them spend time on their QC and product expansion than worry about this thread. Now, if they stop answering emails and abandon all communication and customer service, that is one thing. Trying to keep up with this thread and deal with all us OCD SF people would not be of any benefit to them, or the customers.

I think their goal should be both...there's plenty of examples of reps handling the same issues and they manage to deal with the community and look after their products, good examples include Kent Wang, Luxire, Equus leather.  I am sure there are many more those are just the three I am familiar with.

Speaking of...

Has anyone heard anything regarding either the boot or balmoral museum order? Last info was end of November IIRC?

I asked ten days ago by email if they had a certain pair in stock.  I guess no answer means "no"...

 

It seems to me that their complicated/long supply chain and lack of stock means they're always fire-fighting to keep up with orders and irritated customers.

 

They would be better off halving the size of the RTW range, keeping it fully in stock so it's ready to order, and referring the less popular items to MTO.

Hi everyone, pretty new to these new tiers of shoes. Have been looking for a black plain toe-cap Oxford and I have narrowed down the choices to the Meermin Black Calf vs the Allen Edmond's Park Avenue. In particular, I am questioning the quality of the Meermins. Much of the thread is mixed, any additional input is appreciated from this shoe noob!

I'm also one of the unlucky ones who just can't seem to get any replay from the Meermin guys :/

 

Can any of you guys help me out? I'm looking at the Ama and the New Rey lasts. I'm generally a size 10 UK in the C&J 348 and JL 7000 lasts. So I was thinking of getting the Ama shoes in size 10 and the New Reys in 10.5... Would that be good?

 

Greatly appreciated!

I wonder what width fitting you take in Church's, as they are a little narrower than Loake's shoes in my experience.9uLlxh

Anyone comment on the size of the Ben last? 7.5 in the hiro, same in the Ben?

Good evening gentlemen *

 

Can anyone tell me how the sizing on the Meermin monks (hiro last) compares to Loake Cannon.

I typically wear a 6UK in Loake and Tricker's.

The pictures of a similar Meermin monk listed on eBay look rather a small fit.

Best Regards

I'd like to buy a pair of suede double monks, but I don't know which one between the Snuff Rapello suede (http://www.meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2694) and the Dark Braun Rapello suede (http://www.meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2311).

Any advice? Which is the most versatile?

Probably i prefer the Snuff one, but i'm scared it's too light...

 

thanks

The dark brown is more versatile but the snuff is a much more beautiful colour on its own. I would say the snuff doesn't go well with earth colours such as terra cotta, navy or dark grey while the dark brown goes with everything but black.

I didn't see the post from a Cpl of weeks back Brill.  Thanks for the pics.

 

Don't imagine they will but looking forward to see the burgundy oxford and the dark brown suede boot go up on the site.

 

Interesting to see a pic of pepe, for some reason I had imagine him an old guy who'd been making shoes for the last 50 years or so :p

Also thought the same and was surprised.
