There is a gap for sure, uniform down the whole layer
Where can I see all the colors you can order suede double monks in? I've seen people with blue ones and those aren't listed on the sight.
^ That's because you need to purchase them as a special "made-to-order" (MTO) makeup.
Black, dark brown, light brown
I received my double monks on the New Rey-last yesterday. They have been long awaited! Though I am unsure of the fit... I recieved a pair of oxfords in size UK9 on the Olfe-last a couple of weeks ago, and they were a bit narrow. The New Reys are UK9,5 and they have enough room in them for the heel to move around a bit when walking. Is this due to the lack of shoe strings that I can tighten the shoes with, or are they suppose to be tight enough for the shoe to be "glued" on the foot? Or is it simply something that I will have to get comfortable with when ordering massproduced shoes?
Dat light brown suede
Your black looks navy, your brown looks grey
hard to picture suede colors.
besides, black suede is one of the most fancy materials imo. black suede loafers...
After hearing all the stories re pro-long wait time for MTO, I don't think I want to go down that route.
The production time for MTO can be quite a while. When I placed my order on june 22nd I was told to expect my shoes in 12-14 weeks. My shoes were delivered this wednesday, october 10th. A bit more than 15 weeks from paying to receiving shoes. This was my first MTO, so I don't know what one ought to consider normal. Will be placing an order with Vass early next year, so once I get those I'll have something to compare to.
I love Meermin (own 4 pairs) they are now at the point where they cannot handle the order load. I've been trying to order another pair of LM's for 2 weeks now. I take my own advice and go on email campaigns but even that tactic is no longer working.
Many of their items are not on the site but are available in store (this includes the blue suede double monks, those are NOT MTO). You'll have to email them and ask.
I think the blue suede dub monks are at least a month away from being in stock, too. I e-mailed them, and they asked me to pay for them now and wait for stock to arrive. I declined, but they do look beautiful.
Hi, everyone! Need a little advice here.
I was looking at their Classic Collection line and came across a pair of very sleek black balmoral oxford and was just wondering how do you compare that to the Park Avenue?
The channeled stitching is sleeker, 5 rows lacing is sleeker and more proportionate looking toe. But what about quality and last?
Is the Hiro last comparable to the 5 last? I wear a 10D in PA so is that a 9F in the Meermin?
At around $200, the Meermin is in the same price range as the PA as seconds or on sale too.
Help and answer all questions please??
Hiro is a bit wider / bulkier than the Park Avenue. For sizing, email Meermin with your foot measurements
The Park Avenue isn't all that sleek to start out with so if the Hiro is wider/bulkier, would it look bad? I am trying to decide if I should get the PA or the Meermin for my first pair of black shoes because to be honest, I think the PA is dull and quite ugly... triple stitching and smallish cap toe plus one too many row of lacing...
