    Here you go [​IMG] I'm not sure if Meermin is considered as a 'high volume producer' or not.

    Who's KW?

    Terror, is it too late to participate in the MTO order with Meermin?
    Would mind trying out a couple pairs first.

    I am presuming Meermin makes KW shoes?

    Just checked their website and the last looks interesting.
    Can't give full assessment until you smell, feel & pinch
    the end product in real life....

    Their Double Monks in suede looks like JL Chapel,
    and possibly finer tuned in certain angles.

    Thanks



    I agree 100%, these don't have the norvegese stitching I think, just the regular Vass stitching in white. I didn't order any of those things so they were returned today.


    These ones did came exactly as ordered, Budapest in Cognac calf

    What has scared me from ordering VASS in the past has been how confusing the sizing seems to be. I've read a lot of conflicting data on this thread. Also since I have a narrow foot, there seems to be less sampling data.

    I wear a 9 D UK in EG
    8.5 UK Carmina in Simpson and Robert lasts
    8.5 UK in C&J 360 last

    Perhaps someone can chime in with advice?
