    Can anyone tell me the name of the shoe pictured as the sample for the Ama last? Looks like a MTO, but I wanted to make sure of the leather/color.

    Thanks.

    How accurate or not, I don't know, but the Indy is on TruBalance similar to Barrie, so a 1/2 size change is convention, and therefore yes. I wear Aberdeens and are a half size smaller than Barrie, which I own in Shell PTB. However, that doesn't help unless you specify which Meermin last you are discussing

    I'd size up one full, but would ask Pepe for easy answer to that. Yes, Hiro is a little wider in the forefoot ( slightly), and roomier in toe, but without getting a consensus answer from other Hiro wearers, or pepe's answer, a full size up is safe.

    Not sure what "tru balance" is, but from most Allen Edmonds lasts (in which I'm a 9D) I went down 0.5 to 8.5UK and it was perfect. Hiro last, black captoe oxfords from the classic collection.

    Pretty sure it's random -- I paid $17 duty on a pair of classics.

    Gentleman,

    I have heard back from Pepe on the museum calf and also the prices. I frankly would say they are absolutely freaking reasonably priced! For those who have provided me your emails, I will be emailing you guys on the details of the MTO group buy. I am very sure you guys will be very happy when you read the email, especially on the price of it [​IMG]

    For those who have expressed their interest, but have not provided me with your emails, please PM me your email as soon as possible.

    PS: I have decided to open the group buy to 25 people so there is still some room left for interested participants.

    I'm pretty sure I shot you my email, however being the impatient bastard that I am can you spill the beans on the last, design and leather that Pepe said could be done MTO.

    thanks.
