    Hi guys! been lurking around for awhile now and loving the two group MTOs for the dark brown museum calf.

    I read somewhere in the thread that meermin is thinking of making this a permanent LM RTW model? If this is true, does anyone know when it is likely to happen or are people keen to start a 3rd GMTO? lol. loving the brass initials at the bottom of the soles, don't think we get to do that with the RTW right?

    Thank you for the advices.

    I agree with the comments, that I might need something else than dark brown.

    I actually already have a pair of black oxfords lined up for purchase. Also I'm sure Rui is the only Meermin last for me.

    I'm now trying to decide between the tan longwing I listede or these blue suede shoes:

    However there seems to be very little information anywhere on the classic collection - casual models. Can anybody vouch for this nacy rapello suede?

    I ordered a pair of black cap toe oxfords from the classic line. The leather is quite stiff and I can barely flex the single leather sole with my hands. I visited the Meermin trunk show in NYC and tried on a pair that really didn't have any of these issues. Do these shoes just need some serious breaking in? To be honest, I've never seen a pair of new shoes this stiff.

    Guys,

    any of you interested in boot like this through meermin. It could be either Black, Dark Brown Museum or depending on the number of people interested in multiple colors. I would prefer Hiro last but maybe we can have multiple lasts too.
    @terrorsquad what do you think?

    ^ My classic line monks were really stiff the first day I got them so much so that they felt very cheap (ie: I much preferred my cole haans to them and they didn't compare to my AE's) but they finally softened up after the second wear. I love the looks and the cost/value ratio is great so we shall see how they age. I do have to say that their responsiveness via email is great and everyone over there is very polite. My buying experience was very smooth and will not hesitate ordering from them again

    Hi Sirs!

    We hope you are doing great!

    Is great to see the growing interest in Meermin Mallorca & this time we would like to thank you, again, for your support. Its great to see the thread growing day after day, and you are the ones who made this possible.

    As you may now, for the moment we are not able to be more present here, and be able to help you more regularly, but we thought it will be a good idea to keep you updated at least, of what we have just released:

    The #101509 our new Full brogue wingtip oxford in black calf. The popular #101482 brogued cap toe dress oxford, now in black calf and rubber soles. And finally, to complete this selection, our #101477 balmoral boot in black calf & black grain shaft that will be introduced soon.

    All of them are made on the classic Hiro last & are paired with a rubber sole, making them very versatile shoes!

    [​IMG]

    This coming weeks & months will be very interesting at the same time as stressful here at the factory, since many new styles & colors will be introduced; new loafers, the new crust offerings, new boots along with new colors, many new ladies... Moreover, we are working on a brand new website & in a new automated updating system, in order to have to as updated as possible.

    We would like to thank you again for all your support & patience!

    Best regards,

    God those are awful. No offense. A basic jodhpur would be so much more useful.

    I always wondered how jodhpur's fit. Are they like an loose boot?
    I really like my lace ups since I can em really tight.

    Also if you make meermin make those ones they are going to have to make an new template. Which means time/work... That means that you can an expect a 25 person minimum atleast. Good luck getting that. But Ask pepe anyway maybe he will say yes.

    They fit like regular dress shoes / boots. You just cinch the belt tighter.

    One lady at a time, Pepe! Although many new ladies are always interesting!

    Looking forward to the Balmoral boot. Looks lovely!

    Burgundy Shell Cordovan finally came in [​IMG] and they fit great. I am a size 8UK in C&J Selbournes and I got these in an 8UK.

    Maybe it's my comprehension skills, but a couple of weeks ago I got on email that stated, "We are pleased to inform that your order is ready to ship." and asking for money (which was of course sent the same day), followed by confirmation of my payment. Since then my order status hasn't updated and an email to ask what was going on a week ago has been ignored.

    So my question is - does "your order is ready to ship?" mean something other than what I think it does (i.e. that my order is ready to ship once I've made payment)?
