    So I guess they are simply owned by the same family but has completely different operations.

    Just got my Meermins in on the Olfe last. I wear 11.5 D US (e.g. on the AE 5 last) and ordered the 10.5. So I went down one full size from my US size. They fit a bit snug, but in a good way. The toe box is perfect for my foot. The sizing was on Jose's suggestion after sending him measurements of my foot, based on a pencil drawing.

    This is the 12153-Y style in dark brown suede. The color is more accurate on their website.
    Like most everyone else, I think these are great quality for the price. And the customer service was superb.

    Exactly. But to me, 2nd brand implies that they are in fact produced by Carmina.

    2ghouls: nice shoes.

    from the pictures that I have been seeing through out the tread I have to agree that they are pretty well made and the customer service seems to be very good as well.

    that being said, if my AE 2nds Jefferson turns out to have too much defect then I will simply return it and order a pair of the dark brown cap-toes or some other balmorals.

    They are not made yet, I'll probably order them in the middle of July and will therefore not receive them until mid-autumn. The plan is making them look a bit like the RL Darlton shortwing.

    Thanks, my idea is to order by them a pair similar to these Alden shoes, in the same dark burgundy shell cordovan colour ...

    This is almost how I want mine, just with different brogueing.

    Has someone who's had their Linea Maestros for a good length of time comment on aging?
