    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!

    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

    Has there been any discussion of a group MTO for something in dark green like this?

    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.

    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.
