How often do they restock? I want some snuff suede jodhpurs, but they’re out in my size.
I'm brand new to Meermin and I guess I'm asking if they carry items longterm and restock them, or change it up every season. If they're not likely to bring the suede jodhpurs back, I'll look elsewhere for something similar.

(And maybe someone here could point me in the right direction for that!)

Any pics?
OK, upon further examination, the imperfections noted initially are not that bad, the string that was unraveling was cut by my lovely wife and looks great now, but I found this.



if you zoom it you can see the scratch/ small cut.

I recently became very interested in classic menswear so this is all a learning experience for me, the shoes are very classy and my first quality pair to be honest, so it is what it is.

They carry core items and offer mto from time to time of repeat items but it’s completely random. Plenty of makers do a nice suede jodhpur boot. I had some by RM Williams but found em hard to take off and put on so stuck to Chelsea boots.

If you have to zoom in I think that’s probably something that can be passed off fella. From that pic those look fine to me.
it's obviously more noticeable in real life, phone cameras are like gym mirrors.

Like I said, I'm just dipping my toes in the sartorial world. I'm getting a couple pairs of AMs soon, I have a possible business trip to NYC coming up so I will stop at Carmina's for sure if I'm there.

Those shoes look great! And you will never ever notice the little scratch. And the first time you polish them it will disappear. Wear them well and often.

Thanks. Thursday Boots has a cognac suede pair that looks promising for $199 USD. I think I’ll try those out.

I've decided I am going to give my meermin NST shinki cognac boots from last year a hard time this winter. The shell has a greasy sheen to it and the colour has changed to something closer to #4. Interested to see how they develop.

Take some black shoe polish and give it a rub, it'll go away.

Just got a pair of oxfords in expresso antique. They are nice, but I would prefer a colour closer to dark wood than chocolate, if that makes sense. Could I get closer to this by using a darker shoe polish, and if so, what colour would you recommend?

So, I recently got a pair of Grant Stone boots in a 9.5E and they fit my foot beautifully. I was looking at still possibly getting a pair of the Wholecut Chelsea boots on HIRO last. Would you folks suggest the 8.5UK or 9UK?

I got a pair of the RON loafers this summer in 8.5UK as said before in this thread, but was a bit too narrow and had heel slip in both feet so don't think the last worked for my feet.

I’ve not got any Grant Stone, however I nearly pulled the plug and was advised 9.5 was about the same as 9 uk so by that logic I’d say 9?

I have several pairs of Grant Stones in 9E and 9.5D and they fit me perfectly, while the HIRO boot I tried in 9UK was painfully narrow. I don't recall how the width of 9.5UK would have felt, relative to the Grant Stones, but it was definitely a lot longer.

In my opinion the HIRO last isn't suitable for people who wear a US E width but if you really wanted to match the width of Grant Stone 9.5E, you'd probably need a 10 UK.

Thanks, I may try the 9UK as I can wear 10D boots too. I am sort of pretty well on the line of D/E I would say, but not sure. I may try to go to another brand of suede boots to try to make sure first. Wish GS had suede Chelsea boots right now as I'd go for them
