I was actually talking about asking Betty Albaladejo with Carmina, when it comes to Carmina sizes. When it comes to Meermin sizes, I always mail both Luisa and Sandro.

Have not been following Meermin for some months due to my recent fetish in Carmina. What is the Park last? What's up with the chiseled toe last: is it ready?

The stitching on the back seem of my meermins is ripping, it's a shame. Any idea where I can have the back restitched?

I need advice on my next shoe purchase.

 

Im slowly starting to build me a more classic wardrobe. For now I am mostly wearing Chinos and Corduroys. I have recently bought:

Probably your local shoe repari store.

 

Also try and learn to stitch leather your self. Its really really easy. And unless you are rolling in dough it will be good to know.

 

Really basic tools:

Barge rubber cement

Awl

2 blunt needles

waxed thread

 

All together can make anything hold together... hell you could even resole a shoe with just that.

Here is a good tutorial on basic stitching:

Bluchers are great for chinos and cords. I would pick up something a tad lighter than what you have, since you seem to have two darker color already why not try the cognac gunboats? Just ask yourself "When would I wear these when I couldn't wear something I already have?" With your first two choices the answer is neither. Don't get me wrong, some overlap is ok for proper rotation, but when you are starting small when want to get the most mileage out of your purchases (by which I mean gives you the most versatility within the subset of clothing you already wear). Hence, oxfords are a bad choice for you atm and the following grant you something you aren't already doing:

Thanks, pretty helpful.

 

I love doing things by hand, but I haven't had much free time (other than SF browsing) in two years thanks to my studies/jobs.

 

Also not sure that stitching would be comptable with the back seem as there is a lining.

Brown is versatile but too much brown can also be bad.

 

How about some blue sude?

Yea b/c of that you may want a professional to do it. But if they are my casual shoes i.e. not black i think some weird random sticthes add character.

 

I have old leather jacket I have put back together like 6 times now. I was an old family jacket and I like the coat just because of all the battle scars. I can even see how bad at sewing I was at the start.

I really don't know how you get from too many brown shoes to blue suede. Seems like you skipped quite a few things there considering he's just starting out. Although, maybe I can see considering Meermin's RTW selection is very sparse right now. Personally, I would think a different style would help offer more versatility and I would consider monks and loafers in suede or maybe the country calf for the monk.

Personally, I think he has enough bluchers and he won't get much out of oxfords so I would consider monks and loafers in suede perhaps or if calf is preferred, then burgundy or tan to get the most versatility.


I do not really have an office dress code so I wear things when I feel like it so blue suede to brown calf is not that big a jump for me.

but if i was an stock broker or something then you would likely be right.

Just out of interest, can anyone tell me why the Incas are 60 euros more than the Rains?
