    The classic line takes a long time to break in. My three hand welted pairs became supple very quickly. True, they take longer to break in compared to my vass, eg and Lobb but the hand welted range are decent.

    Thanks for all the input everyone - unfortunately, while I was fence the MTO got funded and I missed out on this go 'round. But I got enough good input that I'll probably take a stab at it next time.

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a good shoe to wear to a couple weddings this summer, as I don't have a "light" oxford to fit that gap. Since it will get relatively minimal wear, this option looked promising:

    https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=1967#

    Unfortunately, it's on the new rey last, which I don't think will work for my foot (high arch and wide toebox with narrow heel, which is basically as far from this last as is feasibly possible).

    I also looked at this shoe: https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4609

    which seems a great wedding option, given its color, although I'd prefer a medallion captoe.

    Has anyone seen this color calf in real life, or can comment on this particular makeup? It looks promising, all things considered.

    You could always go for the suede, so that it can do double duty as a more casual shoe.

    I'm not so sure that'd work well with a worsted wool suit, though, is my only hesitation.

    Looking for calf-skin shoes for my wedding. I'm wearing a black tuxedo, but I'm not into the patent leather. Was looking at the following shoe, but I where a similar shoe to work pretty much everyday so something different would be nice.

    https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=2033

    Any recommendations from meermin besides the above?

    Meermin had black calf wholecuts before, it's a shame they don't offer it anymore. Carmina offers black calf wholecuts that look real sweet.

    I think Skolyx offers a black wholecut. Price is between Meermin and Carmina.

    And it's on a beautiful last, at least in pictures since I've never seen it in person.

    I literally just bought your second link https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4609 for wedding this summer and any other time I need a light summery Oxford.

    I plan to wear it with seersucker suit though, not wool. Either way, I really like the look of them.

    The color is antique chestnut where the antique prefix refers to the burnishing I assume. This effect isn't distracting or over-pronounced in person, it's played up more on the website photos. Maybe later I can take a few pictures of them.

    I wore them with jeans and a silk/linen sports coat the other day and they actually worked really well. I was a bit concerned because I wear nice jeans, but not the super skinny taper jeans a lot of people wear and I wasn't sure if oxfords with jeans was only going to work as a statement piece with tapers, but it worked well with dark wash regular/loose jeans, a cotton dress shirt and a jacket (also, I bought the matching belt).

    Just received my Longwing shells. (This one: https://www.meermin.es/grupoMTO.php?idGrupo=125 )

    I got a UK 9 which feels a little big, but I prefer a little space rather than feeling tight. Perfect craftsmanship, no flaws. Smells amazing!

    I'm surprised they have a bit of a patina/fade to them which I didn't expect, but I'm fine with.

    Showed them off to two shoe guys in the office (brought them in to just wear on the carpet to break in) and got lots of compliments.

    I may have a couple of Meermin converts in the making.

    I think the Linea Maestro is great quality, on par with more expensive an famous brands. And the classic collection is a good value.

    Thanks for the tip! I was travelling when you wrote this so I'm now a couple of days late, but am giving it a shot anyway - we'll see!

    After much debate, I just put in an order for these guys yesterday. No invoice yet. Wasn't sure I wanted the rubber sole, but figured it would be a good pair to have on if it ever rains in California again. This sunlight shot makes it looks like there may be some good depth and color too.

    And PSA for anyone with wide feet looking for basics, the next round of GMTO's just went up and it's all on a newly available Hiro G last.

    Anyone have advice on how to fit the new Hiro G width? I'm normally an 8EE/EEE in Allen Edmonds.

    Your only option is to order them online from meermin.es or buy them on ebay or in the SF marketplace, etc. They have shops in Spain (and Japan) but none in the US.
