Thank you, will definitely wait.
I have looked back in this thread and found your photo.quite nice!
After much time spent longing after Meermins, but not ready to make the splurge, I unexpectedly won a pair of seconds on the bay. Am now waiting for them to arrive. Double monks in dark brown as well, apparently the defect is a slight nick on the covering piece. Am pretty excited.
Good for you. I've seen many meermin's second recently on ebay too. Unfortunately not my size. The defects are mostly little indeed.
Having trouble inserting my images.
These are the dark brown double monks I received
Thank you sir. This explain the tone reddish dark brown. Almost burgundy from my view.
I just received yesterday (4/15) a pair of dark brown oxfords I ordered on 2/26. I think the shoes are nice. I also own a pair of monks from Meermin as well. The oxfords seem to have much thinner leather than the monks and my AE PA's. Is the thinner leather any indicator that the shoe is more fragile or delicate? If I want this shoe to be a workhorse shoe worn a couple times a week will the shoe wear too quickly?
I'm not an expert on shoes but I would say when I go to Nordstrom and feel the leather on say Bruno Magli's or Too Boot NY's, the leather feels similar - soft and thin. On the opposite end of the spectrum, my AE's are stiff and thick. From what I've read Bruno Magli's will wear quickly and not last very long because of the leather being this way. I'm just a little concerned that the same will happen to my new Meermin's.
Sorry to interrupt…
Has anybody heard from Pepe since last Thursday…? Got no respond since that time…
I'll ask for an update from him; giving him a call in the next day or two. Getting these below,the double monk scotch grain and also the double monk in dark brown calf.
I heard from him yesterday by email
Agreed, though red is quite prominent in sunlight.
Here are mine new:
Before a little reno recently at 40ish wears, almost all for going out, lots of abuse nothing but reno on it. For color reference, green shoe is Gaziano & Girling racing green and burgundy shoe is Edward Green Burgundy Antique. And my foot
Wow. 40 wears hold up quite nice. Will you use the saphir dark brown cream in the future?
They are club beaters probably not though might not hurt
Did also forget to mention soles split wearable but an issue meermin used to replace but didnt for me
I am looking at these wholecut oxfords, which are priced way lower than any similar shoe Ive seen. I like the clean lines of wholecut shoes and since it will be my first serious shoe, I want it to be versatile enough for formal functions. Can anyone comment on the fitting and lasting? I am around a US 11, although I do wear a 10.5 in certain slim, athletic shoe styles like onitsuka tigers
