Damn, that's very nice!
Group MTO put together a couple of months ago. Austerity brogue balmoral boot in either dark brown on dainite or light tan on double leather sole.
Getting to the good bit now!
Any news about the hatchgrain MTO?
Nice! How much cheaper do you get these kinds of orders when you make it in a group?
Saves the 100 euro MTO charge and you get to make something they don't have yet
Thanks for the clarification.
friend ordered two pair of shoes... took two months. no joke. a shame to wait that long. he was quite pleased with the quality as usual
No probs G. Hope they come out right!!
Has there been any discussion of a group MTO for something in dark green like this?
There will be now I expect!
This is incredibly confusing. I just checked Meermin's sizing chart, and it seems to have changed. A couple weeks ago the sizing was conventional: each UK size was one number lower than US sizing. Isn't UK sizing just one number lower than US sizing? So why does 6.5 on Meermin's size chart now equate to size 9 US? This would mean that the size they gave me is indeed a US 9, being a 6.5 (this number written inside the loafer). However the loafers fit incredibly small, and the number on the box was an 8.
I was about to reply that "that's not the sizing chart I see on their website", but then I checked a different shoe...
It seems that you get different charts depending on which shoe you look at:
The normal one:
The "6,5=9" version:
That's very odd. There are two sizes that equate to US 9 on that chart: 6.5 and 8. I ordered an 8 UK. would that be larger than the 6.5? How confusing.
Doesn't matter what the size chart says; you ordered an 8 and they sent you a 6.5! Fwiw I've never seen any shoe where a 6.5uk=US9.
That chart makes no sense at all! I think someone's been messing about with it!
IMO it's obviously just an error when making the chart, it should be 7.5.
