Ok that makes sense. I have Alden suede and J. Crew Ludlow suede penny loafers (made in China), both of which I enjoy but are clearly at different quality levels. I would expect the Morjas to at least be on par with the J. Crew quality but not nearly as nice as a $300+ shoe. If that is the case, I'll be happy with them.They weren’t bad shoes. For me it was the suede quality that was less and the shoes were not as comfortable as more higher end. Also, the fit wasn’t good but that is something personal ofcourse.
I'd totally try a tongue pad honestly if you like them. Skolyx has some for 10$Update: I received the medium brown suede penny loafers today. They look quite nice. The suede is very good looking and the overall craftsmanship of the shoe seemed on par with the price and they look more expensive than they are. Unfortunately, they fit about a half size too large in length for me. The width was great. I usually wear a 6 1/2 in loafers and these felt more like 7, thus quite a bit of heel slippage. So, I'm returning them. Sadly, they don't have a size 6 so I need to find something else. I'd get another pair in a smaller size if they had them.
No experience from Morjas myself, but judging by people here, they need to spend less money on marketing and more on QC...I bought Morjas suede PTB some months ago, and I’ve been wearing them alot. I needed another pair of proper but discreet looking to wear at work and whatnot, but didn’t want to spend too much. Everyday beaters. Given the price, I expected solidly made shoes with less fancy materials, but it turned out to be the opposite, sortof. The suede, while not being luxurious in any way, feels relatively nice, and has withstood many swedish downpours very well by now. But the quality of the welting and sole work in general - disclaimer that this is my only pair of Morjas - is disappointing. The welt stitch is dangerously close to the edge in some areas (or rather the sole was sanded down way too much), the storm welt is unevenly fitted against the upper, and also the rubber sole wears down surprisingly fast and also bends in weird ways around the edge. Why the latter occurs, I have no clue. The fit is great though, I have to say. But given the hard factory trimming of the sole edges, I doubt these will last for a second resole, unless I’ll also have them rewelted. And I’m not sure I want to spend that much money on this pair. Next time I’ll buy a similar pair in the same price range, I’ll go for Skolyx I think. Similar looks, but something tells me they’re not as sloppily made. I will also look closely on all details before taking them outside. Lesson learned.
I'm glad you drew the circles otherwise there's no way I'd be able to see what you're talking about.Hello, I bought a morjas belt in November and after some wear like 5-7 times the upper leather already starts to Tear and break. Did someone experience something else ? Or did I do something wrong, I wear the belt quite tight but I think not too tight. Other belts of mine didn’t tear like that but they‘re smooth and not grained leather.
i can not see anything and i think you're being extremely nitpicky and looking for issues. if you hadn't circled those miniscule spots i'd have no idea what you're referring to. it's just a beltHello, I bought a morjas belt in November and after some wear like 5-7 times the upper leather already starts to Tear and break.
