Anyone got natural photos of the country tan calf?
Is there a Meermin sizing thread like the Carmina thread?
No just ask what you need to know.
Looking into Meermins, I wear AE 5 lasts in 9.5D. What's my equivalent sizing? Specifically considering the double monks.
Here are my thoughts. I'm a 9D in most US sizing, but when I sent in my foot measurements to Meermin, it was recommended that I go with an 8.5UK. In that size, the Olfe is about as perfect a last as I can find -- the shape is exactly what I like, and the fit is impeccable. The Hiro in comparison is a little looser -- it is definitely a last that will feel larger. I ordered two models in the Hiro -- a standard lace-up oxford, and a double-monk. I found that the standard lace-up oxford still fit really well and didn't have much slippage, but actually the double monks are much bigger feeling and slip a lot (so much so that I need some sort of heel insert to make them fit well). I'm not sure why the lace-up works so much better, but it may simply be b/c the laces allow me to tighten up the shoe more.
^^ Hiro last in UK 8.5. The Ama last will also work for you.
Wished they made more shoes in Ama...and I'll say it again...more Burgundy.
FWIW I am a US8.5 and was told to go TTS in Hiro, 7.5UK
I mentioned the lasts of the AE Leeds model and Loake chukka, too.
who do I contact to get in on the group buy?
oh yeah... I don't even know my options!
I guess I should search the thread on the open group buys first...
where can I find a current list of all open GB's ? (well, besides going page by page..)
This is my foot according to Koji Suzuki's Measurements. Here are the measurements according to Meermin for the Ama last. What shoe size do I need? Thank you!

I think the only possibly open groups just now are Konda's potential jodphur boot and Terrorsquad's hatch grain. There might be an Austerity boot mk 2 in the pipeline. What you looking for? Start your own group!
