Meermin’s Green Cordovan Monks

Meermin Green Cordovan Double Monks

I have never really been one of those people who was absolutely enamored with the idea of cordovan leather. I always felt, “gosh that is a high price for some stiff leather.” But it seems to be popular for a reason and when one puts a bit of thought into it, he/she must see that there has to be something special about it which thus makes it so popular. The Spanish makers seem to have capitalized on this very same idea. Meermin, getting more and more known for their ability to make some crazy-colored MTO’s in Cordovan (as shown here) and well, Carmina has been pioneering it for awhile now. One like me who sees cordovan after cordovan longwing most likely doesn’t seem to think much of it, but when coming across a pair of monks like this, makes you think otherwise. Not to mention all of the whiskey and navy cordovan that I have seen as of late. I don’t know about you, but I am becoming more and more intrigued, thinking how I can go about sourcing it myself to make a sample in it…. But for now, I will simply leave it to Meermin and the like to remain as the kings of cordovan……
