    Thanks for sharing, pics look or give a better impression than meermins own website :p

    ---

    I thought I understood shoes pretty well these days but I have no idea what half the stuff on that Adelaide suede mto table means, I was contemplating switching from the other one but will just stick with what I know now.

    I have seen meermin use crust leather, do they dye the shoe themselves, can they do certain colors on request, and do burnishing?

    blue2007 no opinion ? ? park




    A couple questions:
    1) what in the world does lining color: sharp mean? Does that mean bright?
    2) For lining colors do bright colors end up looking ratty after like 10 wears? What colors will not look like crap after a few wears, preferably someone with a pair of lined meermins?
    3) What is the actual history of the peaked heal counter? Does it have some functional purpose? It seems like an asthetic that is a bit out of place with any shoe since it does not follow the normal curvature of the shoe.

    Comments:
    1) belts are 100% up in the air. Do not expect to get them. Ill ask pepe. If he says ok then yay. but otherwise not much to do.
    2) p.henrik it looks like the medalioin toe is not going to win in the voting. Sorry :(.


    Also the original pic of this was the ben last not the new ray... Incase anyone was wondering: http://meermin.tumblr.com/post/32809013389/mto-for-hcl-cap-toe-adelaide-oxford-w-peaked

    Is it just me or does this shell cordovan look alot like calfskin/ very matte finish for tight grain shell?

    Also how do you like the shell? Does it feel like it was worth it over the calfskin?
    Any other shell pieces to compare against?

    Anything you hate about it?

    1) Should be bright color, like purple, red...to bring larger contrast as I would like to
    2) If your shoes size is fit, it shouldn't look like crap after couple wears
    3) I just know this is the difference between G&G St James & St James II....but i am not sure any history behind

    Hi guys! I've been lurking on here for an eternity, for my first post here's my Classic Collection reverse stitch captoes. Almost a year old now, worn twice-weekly...I think they've held up beautifully.

    Can I recommend that this be done via email? Its making the thread a bit cluttered

    Indeed, most MTOs are done via Private Message.

    All these charts are making me interested in the MTO. How much is the MTO when shipped to the US?

    I agree that at least a periodic update on the status on the MTO is helpful for those considering it.

    I have been going through pages of this thread for other MTO possibilities. I have no idea what else might be out there.

    I'm trying to get in on the boot (EG Galway knockoff) and I'd love a museum/misty dark brown balmoral.

    CB, I have you on my list.

    Follow up question, does anyone know how many orders we need to avoid the MTO charge. I thought it was 20, but I cannot remember.

    I will make a separte thread and only occationally post updates here then.

    I like to have an public chart so that everyone knows everyone elses intensions. (less infighting :p )

    But i understand that clutters things. So ill make a new thread shortly.

    6 people I believe

    Likely 260 + shipping (Exacrly like an regular LM shoe)

    I've noticed Meermin has removed the navy calf adelaides from the website. Anyone know if they are planning on bringing those back? I was just about to place an order and I hate to think I've missed out :(
