Unfortunately no, the Austerity brogue is on the Rain last, so it can only be done in Mediums.
The Bal boot, Shortwing boot, and Plain toe blucher are all on the Forest last, and those can be done in wides.

And, what last will these python shoes be on? I assume python gets tighter as you wear them... :-)
Yup, I think that a 10.5 wide will be spot on.
Python shoes will probably be on the Rain last as well. I'd recommend doing an 11uk on those. They'll probably be a little long, but they should fit good in the width. And I'm all for cheesy python jokes!

Shell Bal boot has a storm welt and york sole. You can see pics and a description at the preorder item page:http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-1385/Special-Order-Chestnut-Shell/Detail
Shipping to Australia will be $30 for Priority and $40 for Express. Either is totally fine and very reliable. You might want to check with other members from AU, but I'm pretty sure that these boots will not be subject to any import tax as they're under $1000.

I'm probably in the minority with your customer base, but I am not in need of shel

I would be in on a calf version if available/recommended and if others were interested.
Well, we're going to do an entire run of the Austerity brogue in Chocolate Calfskin for early September. Price on that is probably going to be $525. So we don't really need to do an MTO project on calf - but I can certainly take paid special orders if anyone needs a size smaller than 7UK or larger than 11UK. I have another two weeks to finalize that.
Navy shell is going to be RADIANT in this style. I have a pair of Navy shell Edward Greens, and I can't believe how much I love them. They start out as a dark midnight tone, and the true navy comes out with wear. It's a brilliant leather.

if i could pick, i'd do calf for the austerity and shell for a cap toe double monk like Epaulet's Salinger. that's just me, but any combo will be killllllller

We can easily set up a Navy Shell Salinger double monk project too. The Salinger is already coming in July in Color #8 shell as a regular production run.
