    I should be receiving 2 pairs of the classic line in the next few days and will post the photos on here.
    One dark brown dub monk and one punch cap oxford. Will be interesting to compare vs the shoes I have already which are all English made.

    :cry: I am however in serious, serious trouble, after receiving 3 pairs this week and iminently another 2 pairs this will take my current rotation to about 15 and the wife is going to flame me!!

    I want another pair as well! But as a second year college student, its tough. I have to actually save money but this damn forum has me addicted. I work for a major airport in advertising and sponsorship (intern for 4 months) and everyone looks at me and says, where did you get [insert article here].

    My parents arent too happy. hahaha

    Got this dark brown oxford last 2 week and wear them few times. I am happy with the leather quality, however there is a disappointment that i found a crack between te welt and outsole along the shoes juz after few wearing , damn horrible with the craftmenship!

    I know the price of my shoes is unexpectedly low compared with my other english shoes, but meermin need work harder on QC.

    Hope Meermin need work harder on QC though price is attractive, it is juz my little complaint.

    For me it fits equally to the 348, maybe a tiny bit smaller.

    Oops! I'm already rehearsing in my head how to explain I paid for the museum calf MTO months ago. It's a no win situation; if I paid for them now it means I'm still buying shoes, if I paid for them 4 months ago it just makes me strange [​IMG]

    Wait, really? That sounds like it's fairly narrow. C&J 240 is too narrow for me, and the 348 is supposedly more narrow than than.

    Too bad for me.

    No trees. I started to, but heard trees cause int'l customs problems & are overpriced, so I had them removed from my order. I answered FedEx's questions to the best of my ability but they said they needed more info so they're contacting Meermin. Not sure what the outcome will be.
