OT: Interested in the sizing as well.
Long time no post.
Today I received a pair of Meermins from Pepe.
Just wanted to say how excellent the service was from Pepe and the shoes themselves are really nice.
They are the double monks.
I own a fair few pairs of made in England brand shoes (not John Lobb!) as well as your Guccis etc and I would easily place these next to them, so I would highly recommend them for the price and style. I had been planning to get the John Lobb Double Monks "some day" but at £650, I knew that I would not enjoy them 5 x more than these, so decided to give these a go and if they didnt work out, then I had only 'lost' £150.
As it turns out, I am incredibly pleased with them and will be ordering from Pepe again soon. It's nice to see European business, be they English, Italian, Spanish whatever making a great product at an affordable price.
Great to hear jedwards! Which model exactly did you buy? Would you mind posting pics?
Oh god. This is not even funny. I would like to say I have no clue that the aforementioned pic is suggesting but I'm all too familiar
I would post my own pics, but not really much point as my camera is a bit rubbish and those official pics do them the best justice.
Need a Boglioli to go with them next
Post pictures please.
FWIW, I'm 7.5 UK in C&J 348, and the Meermin New Rey 7.5 UK was too small for me. I'm now waiting for them to restock 8 UK.
Please keep us updated when you receive them. Since my 348 are a tiny bit thight for me in 7, New Rey in 7.5 could be a perfect fit.
That'a exactley the pair I'm looking on as well.
thats a great looking pair. vil last?
Yeah, only I want them in black shell and dainite soles on either 7.5 New Rey or 7 Ama, need to figure out my size.
Soooo, not exactly that pair.
update on new rey last fit. Pepe provided the measurements of the outsole of 3 sizes: 10.5, 11, and 11.5UK.
My initial understanding of the new rey last was to size down one size. However, once I compared measurements, its clear that New Rey last fits my foot best by sizing down only 1/2 size. 11UK is equivalent to about a US11.5 while the 11.5UK is comparable to US 12.
awww yeah. now you have my ear
