    Well their LM lines are hand welted which is more a sentimental upgrade than having any true quality effects (as far as I'm aware though I do believe it results in a sturdier insole. - if I'm wrong please correct me), its really just preferable as its so darn rare nowadays. The Linea Maestro line has much nicer looking sole work and general finishing than the classic range and I believe their leather is sourced from some of the tanneries that supply makers like Alden. I'd say if you have the money to upgrade from the classic collection go for it but from what I've seen so far (with a couple of exceptions) the classic collection is of high enough quality to satisfy you if you're not hugely into footwear... and you'll have a pair of shoes that look better than most men's as you wanted.

    Ps dammit Pepe send me my shoes now!!! *sulk*

    Anyone managed to get a response from Jose or Sandro these few days? I've made my payment on Thursday and thus far not provided any shipping information yet.

    Bloke I ordered on Thursday and received a reply Saturday morning. Meermin then communicated with me several times throughout the day. No word on shipping, so maybe we have to wait until Monday.

    The wait is torturing.


    Sandro and Jose will exchange direct emails with you once you've submitted the contact form.

    Jose estimated that I would receive my boots in 15-20 days. That was in the beginning of June. The wait is torturous

    Which line you ordered? That duration is plausible for MTO orders.

    these were ordered in March with a delivery date of June. Honestly, i think after the SF surge, everything, all the orders including my shell jodhpur from LM line got pushed back. thanks SF!

    I paid for the suede double monks ten days ago and have not heard a peep since. This is despite having been told they would be posted last week, and also despite my having gotten in contact to ask why I haven't heard anything.

    Just take it easy, Meermin is clearly dealing with insufficient staff regarding the sudden jump in demand for their shoes, which is totally understandable. Sure, they can, and probably will hire more, which will end up pushing up the cost and everbody knows what that leads to? Yeah, just calm down, they will arrive.

    With all due respect, given that none of us has their sales records at hand, I wouldn't say that that is clear at all.

    I am not unreasonable and would be fine with waiting patiently if I had heard anything at all.
