    Great looking shoes!

    I'm guessing these are in snuff suede? They are quite light. Do you find they pair well with your dark grey trousers? I thought they might 'stand out' a bit much with a relatively sombre trouser such as those?

    Colors...

    They are Noix Januscalf, similar to Snuff, but a tad lighter and more yellowish, I'd say.

    Indeed, when I received them I browsed my wardrobe for matching pants and found this will indeed not be quite easy. So any suggestions are appreciated.

    Anyway, the wool pants pictured are brown. As many of us will have found, colors frequently come out unrealistic on iPhone photos, this currently being the only device I use. I do agree that these shoes should definitely not be worn with grey or black ;-)

    let me preface this by saying i have browsed and searched this thread extensively for an answer but have found little insight aside from one or two quick mentions and a photo comparing two LWBs. a quick question for meermin + alden owners--how does sizing translate between the meermin lasts and alden aberdeen or barrie? TIA

    Great to see new styles and finally(!) LM shoes not on the New Rey last. If /when the austerity brogue is there in burgundy, or maybe a mid brown, an order will be placed.

    I ordered the dark brown double monks, Style: 101341-S, from their classic collection and received them today in the mail. Upon inspection I noticed MANY imperfections:

    Right Shoe
    1. Crack in heal/outsole
    2. Splitting of the outsole
    3. Discoloration on the quarter
    4. Scratched clasps

    Left Shoe
    1. Scratched clasps
    2. Scratch/scuff on the leather piece that covers the tongue
    3. Glue residue on the tongue
    4. Discoloration on the vamp. It looks like the uppers were black and painted dark brown

    In the end, the shoes have too many imperfections to pass as first quality. Additionally, the leather seems very cheap and stiff, a shoe I would expect to see on the shelves at Macy*s with a stamp on the inner tongue - Made in China. Also, the left shoe looks like it started as a black shoe a[​IMG]nd then painted brown with a paint brush. To conclude, I am returning the shoes for a full refund. I guess you pay for what you get.

    Here are a few pictures I took quickly.

    It's known that Meermin's QC is not the best but their customer service is very good. Get in touch with them, they will take care of you.

    Honestly, even if their customer service is good, that sort of thing is unacceptable. Price aside, you expect the product to be what you ordered, without flaws. Yes it happens, but to allow a product to ship with all those issues is simply unacceptable and will surely paint a negative picture about the company (in time). They can fix the issues all they want, but at the end of the day first impressions count. Not trying to sound negative because I have a pair of DM's being made as well, but if they came to me like that I would never order from them again.
