    I've noticed that no one has complained of bad quality control in the last few weeks. Hopefully, this means Meermin has tightened up on things - which could also explain the slow down. In other good news, I just got an email saying that my double monks will be shipped next week. I can't wait to see them in person.

    Lol! That would be a logical conclusion...

    However, I got a pair and so have several others based on the posts and pics so I think we have to rule out that line of reasoning.

    Although I haven't held the shoes in my hand YET (I hate waiting..) the overall consensus from my father was the shoes are excellent quality. The leather looks plush without irregularities and the sole/stiching looks on point. Obviously I won't know until I have them physically in my hands, but I think the people at Meermin have taken notice at the less than stellar quality control practices.

    I know I couldn't be happier with the pair I've recieved. As you said, quality leather and well made. I hope I can say the same for the next pair.

    On another note, these bags are gorgeous.

    Really hope it wont reach that kind of number; most likely will limit it to 15 pairs only per design (thinking of doing it in 2 designs)


    Will definitely do so =)



    Here you go my friend =)

    Received my double monks last week!!
    Very pleased with me shoes [​IMG] Did a close inspection and couldn't find any faults with it.

    They're extremely comfortable and surprisingly, didn't need wearing in.
    Am looking to get another pair with them [​IMG]

    This is after I added some of my own finishing touches at the toes.

    I am torn between a wholecut and a chukka boot; Chukka most likely will be in the Ben last as I like the chiselled look. For the wholecut, I am trying to have an existing last modified for this MTO so that it will be along the lines of a G&G.

    But maybe I'll offer it in 2 designs so you guys can choose =)

    How about:

    Brown hatchgrain
    Design like the G&G Arran
    Rubber sole
    Olfe/Ben last
    ? lining

    The perfect chukka IMO.

    Hatchgrain wholecut in GG-style last sounds so awesome. So would love a shoe like that, definitely would like to be a part of an order like that.
