    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.

    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.

    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
