    If I'm not mistaken, I bought the exact same double monks. Mine shipped the 19th, so I guess yours are finished too. Have you asked if they can ship them individually?

    Okay, I hope that you are right in this case although the Meermin cannot compare to St Crispins.

    Finally had the chance to take a picture of my newest acquisition:

    Double Monks in the Light Brown Rapello Suede on the Hiro last. Due to the current weather conditions I haven't taken them for a walk yet. I sized down half a size on Pepe's recommendation and they fit pretty well, however the leather seems to be pretty hard (judging from the few walks I had around the house).

    I guess they could but I'm not paying for that.

    NOT that much difference between Meermin or Carmina MTO cost.

    Nope, but its 80%+ there at 1/3 the price? And Zonkey Boots is 85% there at 2/5 the price and runs by the same guy that started Saint Crispins factory?

    Quality can be have for a price.

    I would gladly trade my gemmed shoes for handwelted shoes and receive a 20% discount any day.

    Carmina have a 50% up charge for MTO, charge more for shipping and are more expensive to begin with. We're not comparing the same animals here gents. If you don't want to wait( and it's not usually 5 months, that's for the group MTO where 2 months of that is waiting for the leather) go elsewhere but expect to pay a considerably higher price. IMO!

    Are these MTO or did you simply ask if they had the double monks in light brown suede?

    You're comparing the LM line, Meermin's quality to price/style ratio on the "normal" line is unmatched.

    As far as LM goes, Sure I could buy a fugly boxy pair of AE's for 3 hundo and some change, or some Carminas for 450-500, but why? Because SF groupthink says Carmina is the better shoes by default?

    With regard to MTO? it's not even close, Meermin by a country mile.

    You have the perfect shoe for those conditions, just spray them with water repellent suede spray.

    I just asked around mid-october if they had them in light brown suede. Back then they just had started the production in light brown.


    The photos give a false picture of the weather conditions. It was a mix of a lot of rain and snow the days before, my shoes were usually soaking wet within 30 minutes. Weather conditions have improved so I'm already looking forward to taking the shoes for a walk :slayer:

    Those MTO's are incredible. I'd like to get something like that myself. I have the blue suede double monks and I love them. Can't wait until print to rock them again.
