Looking good so far. Now beat on them for a week and report back
Wow! Looking good! How does the last fit?
Definitely interested in a review of the double monks they look great! Would love to buy a pair
My 3-yr-old daughter is demanding, I poop you not, that I watch "Cinderella" w/ her. So the commentary on these magic slippers will have to wait til later.
Based on my 9.5UK size in AS last 87, C&J 337, etc. Mr. Albaladejo suggested I go w/ 9.5, & I did. The length is pretty close to perfect, but the width is a little too narrow. The curve of the shoe matches the ball of my foot & instep, but it's a little tight in the vamp along the top ridge of my foot that parallels the instep. After about 15 hours of wear over 2 days the shoes are stretching, & I hope that they'll keep stretching. If not, I'll have a cobbler stretch them a little & add another hole in the buckle-strap closer to the toe (there's only 1 position!). I asked via email whether I should've ordered a 10 or wider fit, here's the reply I got from Mr. Albaladejo:
Well, currently we are producing standard wide for our lasts (Each last its width; The New Rey is one of the narrower lasts, we have other lasts which are wider) but as a MTO we can make the a wider New Rey.
In my opinion I think is better to have a wider MTO New Rey instead of taking a 10, if the length is the right one.
More later on finish.
Quote: HI Mr.Invariant,
Sorry to hear about that, please email us at: [email protected] and we will replace the pair, because this is not usual.
Thank you very much.

VERY Excited about ordering a pair or two of these in the near future! Can't wait for the online shop!!
Approximately what total cost am I looking at to import a "classic line" aka Double Monks minus VAT w/ shipping to the USA???
Thank you very much for your interest in Meermin.
Please contact us at: [email protected] for proper information.

I fit the 9.5D on the Alden Barrie last very well. What size does that make me in Meermin?
Why would anyone take a Barrie last as a guidepost to wearing a EURO shoe?
Its the only reference I have... other than a 10E in Aberdeen or a 44 in Vass New Peter. I'm seeking size guidance for a new maker in which little is available. No need to be a dick.
Vass would have been a better reference point. Barrie = blobbiest of the blobs.
Thanks. The only other euro shoe I have are tyrwhitt boots in 9.5 uk. I just pre-ordered the double monks in dark brown suede in 9.5 uk. I hope they work out
