LOL.

No.

Ask again in a few years. I do have an odd infatuation with the Dover, especially as I've a) never tried a pair on and b) never seen a pair in real life. So I am sure, provided they are confortable, one will make it's way into my shoe closet.

Yes RogP's are new. And willow might be gone forever. And you'd be getting them at a great price. Now I'm done being the pusher man.

Ok, so Clags being a bargain shoe guy. Can you recommend a bargain pair of your precious suede brogues? The peer pressure is too much and I'm actually considering expanding my suede collection. (My stance on them remains the same though)

Nice, but too light. I think there might be some you can buy from Carmina directly. Though if you mean real bargain and not SF bargain, Herring continental has some GYW leather soled that look nice for 147USD. Never bought anything from them (though if it weren't for the cheap Carmina at the moment, the shoe is nice enough at that price that I probably would), but they are probably at least in par with Meermin I would think.

If you don't care about leather soles, these would work well with what you often wear and the shape of many of your trousers:

Also this one, but it just looks identical to Meermin's:

Looking at the three, price aside, Herring would probably the direction go in terms of ease of use. But I'm happy with my suede oxfords.........though they are a different shade if brown...

Yes, Fox suede is a pretty light.  I prefer snuff suede:

@Claghorn  et al, any direct experience with Herring (particularly the Classic Line)?  They seem a nice competitor to Meermin if they're well made.

The Classic Line is made by Loake or Baker. Type the number of the last of an Cheany shoe in the search field and you can see which company uses this last.

E.G. the shoes with 026 last are from Loake and with the 386 last are from Barker.

 

I have an Herring shoe made by Cheaney and it´s one of my favorite shoes (That canvas/leather spectator)

Thank you @Murlsquirl and @Claghorn. Since I am not a huge suede guy and probably won't be wearing them as much as some of my others, a bargain is definitely appreciated. Especially a bargain like $147 U.S. Can anyone tell me about sizing on the Herrings? Should I order a full size down from my U.S. size, or just go half a size down like the website suggests?

post #1708 of 2070
I have Loake shoes and I size down 1 and that is pretty uniform across all English makers (and Meermin) for me.
post #1709 of 2070

That's probably what I'm going to do, but there is an oddity with he sizing. I wear a 9.5 US, I usually go down to a 8.5 when ordering British sizes. However the website equates the British 9 to the European 43 and I know I usually wear a 43. So I'm confused. If you say I should go a full size down then that makes me feel better.

I hate my feet. I wear a full size difference in some brands due to their shape (Meermin I wear 8.5UK to 9.5UK depending on last). Trying to remember what I wore in Rain.

Herring, I bought from once. Went half size down (9.5UK) and the shoes were way too big. Full size is probably the way to go.
