    Any idea how they fit an Olfe or Rui last?

    Can anyone with experience with AE's #8 last help me out? If I'm a 7.5 in AE, what size would I be in Meermi's Olfe and Hiro lasts?

    I did email Meermin, but they suggested a size based on the length of my foot, and my high instep forces me to size up. Unfortunately, I have really fat feet.

    To clarify I like that the JAB trees are not the combination shoe trees, they are the full.

    Unfortunately I have no experience with Meermin (though I hope to soon!)

    Also to clarify. Allen Edmonds and JAB shoe trees are made by the same manufacturer, Woodlore.

    I had the same size in both, I just had to stretch the New Rey, width-wise. Remember everyone's experience could be different.

    I checked through the thread and just want to confirm: 10.5D on the Barrie last would most likely be a UK10 on Olfe?

    10.5D on the Barrie fits pretty well; a touch roomy in the toe box and heel, but the length and comfort are good. Thanks!

    I know someone posted a sizing guide in a previous page that Luisa sent and I tried measuring my foot according to that to ask her if her recommended size was still the best fit for me.

    I wear 10.5D in AE and 10D in BM pretty comfortably and she recommended that I go with a UK 9.5 for the Classic Collection and a UK 10 for the Linea Maestro. Do those sizes seem about right to you guys? Also, out of curiosity, how come the Linea Maestro requires a half-size increase?

    I've ordered the double monks from Meermin in a UK 9.5 and am wondering if I should do a UK 10, based on her recommendations, for the group buy that Terror has set up since that one is being made to the Linea Maestro standards.

    Thanks for the input guys!

    Quick question that is applicable for those who have ordered shoes in the past that were not going to be ready for 6,7,8,etc. weeks,
    does Meermin issue an Invoice to PayPal and you don't pay anything until the shoes are actually ready to be shipped?

    With the Styleforum MTO shoes, I am happy to pay the price and happy to wait the time, however I don;t want to actually pay anything until the 20 or so weeks have passed
    and the shoes are ready for shipping.

    thanks.

    ^^That would be a question for Terrorsquad. The price isn't bad, but you are holding my money for 5 months. Maybe Meermin would do half upfront (non-refundable), like many other shoe makers.

    I bought another pair of shoes from Meermin before getting in on this most recent MTO group buy and Meermin's instructions upon checkout for me told me not to pay the PayPal invoice until the shoes are ready to ship. Here is the direct quote that was sent to me in my confirmation:

    Sandro said my shoes would be ready by last Friday, but it has now been a week and I have emailed him multiple times with no reply. What to do?

    Pepe paypal invoiced me after the details are set, paid 100% up front, and then wait till he sends pictures for updates. And billed by FedEx at the time of delivery for import duty.

    AFAIK, almost every MTO/bespoke, from shoes to suits, is either 50% up front or 100% up front.

    Wait patiently.
