    Haha, I usually fold those inside! The fact of the matter is that I'll be wearing black oxfords for 5 days of the week, so it doesn't really make sense to have 8 pairs of brown shoes and only 2 pairs of black shoes. I'm selling some of my brown shoes so that I can buy some more work appropriate shoes/suits. The boots are also slightly too big. They're fine with some thick socks, but it's just annoying.

    I might just order the boots again in black, because the design is gorgeous and I do like wearing them.

    Would be good! Just a shame you have to run the QC gauntlet again!

    Yeah, I got lucky last time, but that might not be the case this time. I might just shell out for a Carmina MTO (maybe in black shell), but that will probably cost me double.

    Great news! Does "next week" mean the one with May 30th, or the one with June 6th?

    When meermin says next week I usually assume 2-3 weeks. :)

    Week 22 or 23 is what Pepe said. Currently it's week 21 starting Monday 26.

    Look darker than expected, but maybe it's lighting. Excited to finally get them.

    Once you get into LM price + MTO fee + shell...or Carmina MTO at all, I feel Vass should be calling you. Or you calling them!

    To those who has participated in the dark brown austerity brogue MTO, i have touch base with @sarteaga and taken the lead for this MTO due to other priority in his life. I will be sending you guys individual PM to confirm your order again while I get in touch with Pepe in the meantime.

    Let try to confirm this MTO by 1st June, this weekend so that i can confirm with Pepe and proceed with the MTO. Of course for those who is interested I can add on your order to our list. End product will be as followed. Colour will be dark brown museum. Last can be in Olfe/New Rey or the new Park. Cheers!

    That is fresh out of the box but without much direct light. It is only natural light from the window on an overcast/rainy day, so it's definitely lighter in direct sunlight. However, I think it's slightly less bright than the pictures on Meermin's website since that's under direct/bright bulbs. I could try to take some more pictures in direct sunlight but it would be a few days before I'm home with them in sunlight. The belt was 37 euro ex-VAT, so about $50.

    Again, my apologies to all of you! This is also my reasons for the absence from SF. If any of you want to take over the GMTO please let me know, as we can expedite this if I'm not doing it.

    Best,

    Are you guys getting any communication from Sandro? Meermin is supposed to refund me a money for a pair of shoes I returned over month ago. I have not heard from them at all. I sent the message to Sandro a few days ago but I received no reply.

    Can anyone who has the new string loafers can give me a size advise. I usually wear 8,5UK. In Crockett and Jones 348 and 360 are my best fitting lasts.

    Just got my string loafers in size 8 uk and it seems that my first wear seems tighter compared to my 9d AE veronas(dunno what last) . I dont have any experience in c&j's but i do have the mora 2.0 and a grayson loafer both also in 9d yet I havent tried them yet.

    If i get the chance to try them later, ill post back results.

    Hi got to try it already, mora 2.0 was spot on in size. It was neither tight nor loose. However the grayson was a bit loose on the heel. There was a bit of heel slippage in some steps although the width was good.

    Hope this helps ya!
