    I concur. I'm not normally a fan of suede, but paired with a light coloured pair of light material trousers for clement weather (we Brits have had our one week summer last week - normal schedule of nuclear skies and rain has resumed) would be perfect.

    A female work colleague, whom I consult for sartorial advice i.e. show her garments that have caught my eye in SF posts, has given these her seal of approval. She was very appreciative. Good purchase, RDiaz!

    Note: I was thinking of actually trying on women's boot-cut cotton / linen trousers in cream / white because the men's are all too narrow and tapered (hate tapered trousers), but my gym regime hasn't sufficiently progressed where I would feel comfortable wearing them, as I would prefer to go from 86kg to 80kg beforehand (I'm 6ft). Hmm .. maybe the sand wholecuts would require darker trousers than cream / white for a contrast? A dilemma to consider for next Spring / Summer.

    I'm not a fan of wearing shoes that are much lighter than trousers, really. I bought these just for my summer clothing, which is mostly very light blues, greys and tans. Not sure about pairing these shoes with anything darker, and they will probably go back into the closet for fall/winter...

    Glad you like the shoes, gents [​IMG]

    Yeah I was hoping they would have some classic white bucks (plain toe derbies), but nope, no luck. There was also a pair of brown/white spectators that I almost picked up, but ended up with the wholecuts.

    I know Meermin's customer service is overwhelmed by bunch inquiries, but I just wondered what's the general response rate from them to those who have gotten reply back from them. I inquired them about some sizing and customization question about a week ago yet no response.

    For me, within 12 hours as our time zones are different.

    Stopped in the store with the wife a couple weeks ago and was very impressed. We were in a hurry so i didn't have time to make a purchase but will be back in Madrid in a few days and intend to work it into my schedule. Should I start with the classic line and upgrade to the lm line if I am satisfied or make the plunge and start with lm? Also, anyone know how they handle vat refunds for non eu residents for in-store purchases? Thanks
