    Side-by-side, the 7000 looks significantly better to me.

    Very similar but the Meermin looks like a wide fitting.

    pm'ed, +1 Hiro last, LM hand welted.

    Probably because Meermin is in a derby form without a hard closed vamp stitching?

    JL has much more refined lasts for sure, but Meermin still has considerably better last than AE/Alden or more last options than C&J.

    I thought Olfe last was pretty slick already. New Rey would almost touch clown shoes territory for me.

    Sounds very useful.

    Also, if gyasih or someone else can comment on which Meermin last (or lasts) have a high instep (ie high vertical height), that would be extremely useful to me and will be greatly appreciated.

    Olfe is a nice Last, New Rey is too much.

    I don't know enough about shoes to comment on instep.

    Thanks Dieworkwear for the great photos [​IMG] I personally think that it would look nicer on the Olfe last which is almost similar to JL's last.

    I'm also declaring that orders are closed for the group buy. Received more then 15 inquiries/confirmed orders and eventhough some one them will cancel their orders., I think we have the 15 pairs that we need for this group order.

    I will sort out with Pepe on the specs when I hear from him and also the price/last issue (whether we can get it done on both Hiro/Olfe last). For those who have kindly provided me their email, I will update you guys via email [​IMG]

    Just saw these on the tumblr, along with a bunch of other nice MTO.

    Interesting... Carmina has a model like that ^
    I wonder why don't they update their site, it lacks quite a few models posted on tumblr

    Actually, no. Just want decent quality hand welted shoes.

    Hand welted shoes wears very different from gemmed shoes as well.
