post #14356 of 56309

Had some Meermins arrive today:

 

http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=1925

and

http://meermin.es/ficha_articulo.php?id=2339

 

Out of the box, I prefer them to the Herrings I have (plus they fit). A couple of things to note:

 

Customer service is top shelf - I sent 4 emails in 2 days, and all were replied to in under 2 hours, no matter the time.

When I was told the expected delivery date (by Meermin), that meant the date they were collected by TNT, not when they arrive.

They didn't have any trees in my size, and they are an additional 35 euro.

A couple of very minor finishing issues (nails leaving a slightly bigger hole, some dye stains on insole, punches in the captoe not perfect etc.) but by the looks and initial feel, I'm very happy for under $200/pair landed

 

Also, TNT tracking/customer service isn't the most reliable, but they got them here in 8 days.

 

Pics may follow

good evening gents,

 

can anyone suggest (locally; Sydney) where to buy charcoal wool ties?

 

e.g. http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/tiesandpocketsquares/woolties/PRDOVR~39906/39906.jsp

 

cheers

What's up with Dents gloves in Australia? Dents UK lists all these cashmere, wool, cotton, silk lined gloves of different leathers and the ones I find in Myer and Siricco etc are polyester?

Not as far as I know - we didn't discuss any further once I was told they were out. I imagine they'd put them in the shoes, as mine came with paper stuffed in the toe & vamp, and pressed forward with a piece of plastic tube - imagine a really low budget tree.

Under $200 including shipping ?? Yes, but the mto upcharge would put it over.

Once you order how long do you have to wait before the arrive is Oz?-
And when shipping to Oz do they deduct the VAT ? yes
Sizing I am US8EEE . Do they do EEE sizing ? MTO maybe iirc terry isn't used in any current models http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m2dyjhkLq21r3fk48o1_1280.jpg
How would you compare them with AE ? Given Ae are Imo worse than Loake for Herring...

Woke up to this news this morning quite a loss and while I didn't agree 100% with a lot of his philosophical views the program was always engaging and stimulating. Presented excellent food for thought of which i have a vast collection of podcasts of the show in my itunes library.

Try DJ in the city

Anyone have any experience with the scarves from Henry Carter (Charlie/Jason). Getting cold for those morning/night train rides home.

Btw, how are the sales at DJ's? Anything good in terms of 50% off suits? I find the D'urban suits fit well for the price.

Anybody know the shipping times for a Fine Pair of Shoes? No pervious experience with them so would appreciate some first hand knowledge.

From memory, the VAT discount covered the shipping for the pair that I purchased.
