    Wow that is stunning, is that Rois last? And how much generally do you charge for patina?

    Funny as I posted a while back I dropped down the usual one size on my rui boots as per standard up to us and think there is WAY too much volume

    Granted I have slightly lower volume feet but I easy could have gone don another .5

    Those look really good @Fab75, Meermin is similar to Loake, so much quality for the money.

    Similar to how Loake used to be, before they banned UK retailers from exporting and jacked up prices by 80-90%. Meermin are now significantly cheaper for most of us. I used to buy Loake and recommended them to a lot of friends and colleagues, now I’ll point them anywhere else.

    Yeah, I agree. Loake used to be such a great value, but man, now they're not even a consideration for me. How can that move be paying off for them?

    I got both brand, bought recently a pair of liake and was very disappointed, better to buy a pair of Meermin. You add a nice patina on your Meermin and you wear wonderful shoes
    Cheers

    Hey guys,

    Posting a non-shoe inquiry if thats ok, still Meermin tho!

    Does anyone have any experience with their wallets? Quality, size, etc? Any actual pics would be great!

    Choosing between two of their classic bi-fold wallets. The burgundy cordovan (how is the quality of their cordovan?) or their gold museum calf (would love to see actual pics of the color of this)

    Thanks in advance!

    What company does Meermin source their shell cordovan from? The listing says from Italy but doesn’t mention the manufacturer. Kind of interested in the brown tassel GMTO that just opened.

    Thank you

    Thank you. That’s encouraging. I will do some reading on Rocado.
