    ^ +1. I sized down 1 whole size and it was a good fit. I bought their classic line as my first Meermin shoe to try to get my size down - that way if it wasn't a good fit, I wasn't out a whole lot of money. Might try their LM line next

    Hey, A google search for "pebble grain double monk" brought me to this thread. I'm wondering if Mermin is still making these from a few years back. A true beauty. There no longer on the website. If not here who should I reach out to for an answer? Thanks!

    Hiro in 8UK is more roomy than 5-last in 9UD.

    Are there any non-suede group MTOs for Meermin at the moment?

    Yes

    There is a museum calf austerity going at the moment. I believe it's dark brown museum calf in either the olfe or park last.

    Thanks! Is there a separate thread, or someone in charge of this?

    I believe sarteaga is running it, but there' no separate thread for it. He will give us an update when Pepe replies.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I might go 8.5uk to be safe. I'm located in Australia so exchanges would probably cost me the value of the shoe in postage.

    Edit: and I will definitely pay more attention to Olfe!

    All the best! Do report in how it goes, particularly delivery times to Oz. After reading all about it, now I'm not too sure about which last to go for (Hiro or Olfe) but the Olfe is looking to be the safer bet for those with small toes which get crushed more often than not!

    If you go safe. I would get a boot. That way the heel slip will be minimal/not noticable

    Hey everyone,

    I have a sizing question - I want so order some loafers on the Ron last (which I understand is similar to the Hiro last).

    My current collection is as follows:
    - Carmina Simpson - 7uk (perfect)
    - Carmina Alcudia - 7uk (slightly snug around heel)
    - C&J 348 - 7uk (slightly too large)
    - C&J 348 - 6.5uk (slightly too small)

    Which size should I order 6.5uk or 7uk?

    Cheers,
    Oolong

    Ron is wider than Simpson, and if they are suede loafers they will stretch quite quickly.

    Those are all pretty narrow lasts, right? Ron is reasonably normal/wide (moreso than Hiro I think), so my hunch is 6.5. I have a slightly wide foot and went down one full size from my US size.

    Can anyone who has previously ordered one of the museum calf Group MTO's (such as the dark brown museum cap toe) confirm whether the price was the same as the LM plum museum calf offered on the site now (310 EUR w/ VAT)? I'm thinking I want that dark brown one I missed out on over the plum, which i imagine is not as versatile, but curious if cost plays into the decision at all (assuming I can get another group of 6 to waive the MTO fee on the brown). Some of the pics of the plum make it appear more burgundy undertones, which I think would be great, but I'm a little worried they'll show up and look purple.

    Also, what's the deal with that Skoaktiebolaget site? Is it just me or are those Carmina prices way lower than other sites?? $412??

    As far as I know museum calf MTOs need 25 to waive the fee.

    Once you factor in shipping costs its still cheaper but about on par with most other places.

    Quote: goo... that's right, I do remember hearing that now. I feel like there should be different rules for re-ordering the same exact shoe as a previous Group MTO [​IMG]. But I guess Pepe has to go source the leather again and needs the buying power, huh? To that I say they need some permanent LM shoes with Brown Museum Calf!

    Quote: Looks like it's ~$45 to ship to US... can't imagine many places do much better than that? Leatherfoot looks like it's ~$30, but the shoes are mostly $510 - $550. Are there other places I should be checking out for Carmina?

    aaand I just placed an order for two Meermin's. Country calf double-monk and snuff string loafer... sweet! [​IMG]

    Looks like Meermin too have revised their shipping policies. It used to be 2 pairs of shoes for the same price and now to Oz it's a bit more with a 2nd pair.. Have been looking at the plum museum which look really good, and appears darker than I thought. WiIl be pulling the trigger once the next pay day comes in.. Don't know what I'm going to do with another shoe in the collection! Just fingers crossed that it will fit very well... It's all by luck, shopping online. [​IMG] Hopefully no regrets....
