    Would prefer the Carmina Adelaide, but in for the Adelaide regardless!

    Sweet! Thanks for this sir. I have no idea how these are sized but I'm a solid 8UK/ 8.5US.

    I would also prefer the Carmina version, but will get onboard with either one.

    Personally don't like the Carmina version ... I'd only be in if it was the G&G model.

    For those who aren't interested in the Carmina Adelaide, are you not liking the plain toe, or the toe shape?

    I'd prefer no cap, open to both toe shapes.

    I vote for the Carmina style.

    The G&G looks nice but I don't trust Meermin to do a good looking perforated toe cap. Sorry to say, but the quality of toe caps that were shown on the brown museum calf look like shit.

    Maybe a compromise? Take the brogue style of G&G but have it punched on the upper without the cap toe, sort of similar to the shoe below.

    ^ I would like the Carmina adelaide with this medallion on the toe. Leave the brogued long wings out of it. It spoils the entire aesthetics of the plum museum.

    Here are some examples of Meermin's adelaide ala G&G:

    With regards to last (as some have sent emails asking which last will we go for the MTO), below is my suggestion:

    Adelaide : Olfe/Hiro
    Single Monk : a modified Olfe/Hiro last to make it sleeker, similar to the John Lobb Vale

    So far it seems a lot of people prefer the G&G look. An adelaide in plum museum calf reminds me of the G&G St James II in cherry [​IMG]

    I proposed the Carmina adelaide version as the clean toe will highlight the museum calf [​IMG] It may also help that Pepe's grandfather is the founder of Carmina;maybe he can seek some advise on executing the style.

    Can you check with Pepe about ordering the belt alone? Thanks!

    I'd be in for the G&G version.

    Any chance of doing it on the Ben?

    I like G&G version but unfortunately I have the same style shoes from CJ& Westbroune. I would be in for Carmina version. Do we consider New Rey last? I do support to have the Plum Museum Calf bet as well.

    Why people seek to get something G&G with Meermin MTO? That must break Pepe's heart.

    Is this similar to 'hermes' effect?

    cool that you guys managed another round of museum calf. My next order with Meermin will will probably be an MTO suede punch cap on the Ama last. Just received a pair of classics, and they fit like a glove...

    For adelaide I believe plain toe with medallion is by far the best choise. I don't think their current adelaide cap toe is too nice.

    For single monk they already have burgundy olfe version in production and IMO the style looks quite elegant.
