    Very nice. I've been thinking about getting a pair since I saw it on their site. The tan makes for a good casual shoe.

    Hi sorry if I'm jumping in at the wrong place on this. I'm getting my first pair of Meermin Linea Maestro tomorrow and depending on fit/finish I was thinking of enquiring into an MTO austerity brogue boot along the lines of the LG beaulieu. Anyone be interested in jumping onboard?

    Finishing looks fine and the Hiro is a perfect last for those shoes, not too round, nor too tapered. Great shoes and even if color in pics isn't exact, I love the tan saddle color

    If this is indeed the group buy, I would almost definitely be in if I could get it in brown calf or bordeaux shell. Ama or Hiro last would be good but I don't really have a strong preference.

    Those are C&J I think. Older looking style but better made. Pretty happy with my dubmonks minus sole split. Haven't worn my shell ones yet so can't comment

    Agreed.

    As the price point goes up, the options open up.

    I do think that their Classic Collection is probably one of, if not, the best options out there for entry level or everyday beater.

    I just received my Meermins in light brown calf (Rui last). I think they match up well to my Allen Edmonds. To my untrained eye the leather seems comparable to AE (although, I cannot wait for the Meermins to develop a patina) and they seem quite sturdy (the soles are quite stiff). These seem well worth the price.

    I asked Pepe whether he can source something similar to John Lobb's museum calf for the group buy. Fingers crossed [​IMG]

    This is really a nice colour for casualwear and a nice base for antiquing polishing.
    Can't wait to receive my grain monks, hope they will fit.

    I was in the same position and bought a pair of Loake 1880 Aldwych's and then black wholecuts and single monks on the Ama last from Meermin.

    First up, measure your feet. Second, go to John Rushton's on Wimpole Street and see what is available in your budget - try them all on. Third, make your decision based upon estimated fit (you can obtain measurements of the Meermin lasts in various sizes) and style - since price will be there or there abouts (Meermin will be probably cheaper inc. shoe trees).

    FWIW, the only British shoes I own are the Loakes. It took me ages and I mean ages to properly break them in. The upper leather was so stiff, as was the insole felt very, very hard. I believe it was only start of November - after wearing them once or twice a week - until I properly felt comfortable in the Loakes. No such problem for wholecuts for single monks. The Loakes were also bought at full retail £195 + £35 for shoe trees. A bit more expensive than the Meermins.

    I actually do not like the style of the captoes in the classic collection. However, you may feel differently.
