    Thanks for info! Did you try any other last, like the Ben or Ama? Did they recommend you to go up half a size to 7.5?

    Damn! Pepe just emailed me to say the model i wanted was out of stock.... Back to the tumblr to look for others i guess.

    Wish the e-store was open so i could check they have my size before getting my hopes up!

    [​IMG] i think i might go with the shell jodhpur instead of the db monk boot. I wanted a db monk boot with a cap toe but even pepe thought it would look better with a plain toe

    I don't think I've ever seen a shell jodhpur before, may this be the first? Still thinking about my black shell adelaides, would be a perfect gift for myself for finishing my bachelor's.

    Due to an overload of orders, Pepe won't be taking any more mail orders unitl further notice. I believe it will be around the same time as the web store opening.

    Directed to me? I didn't try any other shoe, don't like the norvegese and was really only looking for model 102374.
    Saw a very nice adelaide on a pointy last (probably Vil, anyway pointier than 348).

    Half a size was an educated guess as I was able to cram my feet into a 7, but would like to try on in person before the first purchase.

    Staff did take note of my name and email address and promised to send an email when that model will be back in stock.

    I just got the same email, from Pepe @ meermin just now, so looks like anyone who doesn't already have an order in/pending is out of luck for a while until the web store is up. Bummer. Not too much of an issue for me as I don't need my next pair till march next year.

    Hi Jason,

    First of all, thank you for your interest in Meermin.

    - We are currently working on the launch our online shopping service for our website:  www.meermin.es
    - Due to the big amount of orders received in the last month we are not taking more mail orders, because our factory is currently overloaded.
    - We will contact you back when mail orders will be taken again.

    We hope you will understand.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you very much for your interest.

    Best regards,

    Pepe Albaladejo - Meermin Mallo

    Wow!

    Is this forum/thread responsible for overloading their factory?

    :happy:

    I wouldn't chose black. Depends on what you have already; and If I'm not mistaken you have a pair of light brown already? In that case I would have chosen dark brown.

    Right. Have the chestnut jodhpur. I've narrowed it down to brown or burgundy, medallion, croc strap

    Maybe! I'm glad I placed my MTO yesterday. Pepe said it should ship around July or so.
