    I´m looking at the Meermin webpage right now, but I´m seeing loads of awesome looking shoes in this thread not listen on their page.
    How does one get to ordering those, and where can I find a some more information/pictures of them, as well as the price.
    Looking to order around 3 pairs.

    Using 10E in Alden, and I believe 10.5 in edward green. Any tips?

    thanks

    You can contact them through their website. If you're not sure what you're looking for or have sizing questions, just ask and they will assist you. Ask your sizing questions to them directly as they know more about their shoes.

    Quite a lot of the shoes posted on here are made to order (MTO), and are essentially created as specified by the consumer. These cost a little more, though they're apparently a bargain compared to other brands. Of course, I'm not sure what the total cost is as I've yet to order an MTO shoe from them. I ordered a shoe from their LM line and want to see how they hold up over time before I invest more in their shoes. Furthermore, they probably have shoes which they sell but aren't posted on their website, so you could inquire about those also.

    I like these, but I don't think Jodhpurs should have a two piece front (if that makes sense).

    actually I like that additional line at the otherwise plain vamp. Wouldn't it help in shaping the form (at this price level)? Other makers such as C&J and Tricker's jodhpur vamps, before broken in, look shapeless unlike EG or JL jodhpurs. I think it also added a touch of ruggedness and masculinity.

    Thanks for the update. This thread was a bit too long to read through!

    I will probably try a pair or two from the LM line too.
    Does anyone have a price example for the MTO´s?

    My MTO's were about 350 euros with trees and delivery.

    On par at worst. I believe my LM examples are superior to AE in most every way, it's been debated, though.

    Can anyone comment on the "Rui" vs the "Hiro" last? I have asked carmina twice, they just say "they run true to size", which I believe, but I find it likely that one has more room in the ball of the foot. Anyone have experience in this regard?

    Most people wear the same size in both.
