    Long time no post.

    Today I received a pair of Meermins from Pepe.

    Just wanted to say how excellent the service was from Pepe and the shoes themselves are really nice.
    They are the double monks.

    I own a fair few pairs of made in England brand shoes (not John Lobb!) as well as your Guccis etc and I would easily place these next to them, so I would highly recommend them for the price and style. I had been planning to get the John Lobb Double Monks "some day" but at £650, I knew that I would not enjoy them 5 x more than these, so decided to give these a go and if they didnt work out, then I had only 'lost' £150.

    As it turns out, I am incredibly pleased with them and will be ordering from Pepe again soon. It's nice to see European business, be they English, Italian, Spanish whatever making a great product at an affordable price.

    :)

    Oh god. This is not even funny. I would like to say I have no clue that the aforementioned pic is suggesting but I'm all too familiar

    FWIW, I'm 7.5 UK in C&J 348, and the Meermin New Rey 7.5 UK was too small for me. I'm now waiting for them to restock 8 UK.

    Please keep us updated when you receive them. Since my 348 are a tiny bit thight for me in 7, New Rey in 7.5 could be a perfect fit.

    update on new rey last fit. Pepe provided the measurements of the outsole of 3 sizes: 10.5, 11, and 11.5UK.

    10.5UK

    Length: 320mm
    Width: 110mm

    11UK

    Length: 324mm
    Width: 111mm

    11.5UK

    Length: 329-330mm
    Width: 111-112mm

    My initial understanding of the new rey last was to size down one size. However, once I compared measurements, its clear that New Rey last fits my foot best by sizing down only 1/2 size. 11UK is equivalent to about a US11.5 while the 11.5UK is comparable to US 12.

    I'm a 10E in all of the AE lasts I've tried, 10D Alden Barrie, & 9.5med UK (Cheaney, AS, Barker). I received the double monk on the New Rey in 9.5 about a month ago, & it was very narrow, but the length was right. I ended up having them stretched, & they're now OK. They're pointier than I prefer, so I probably won't order on this last again, but if I do (I have my eye on the wholecut goysers) I'll go MTO wider or standard 10.
