I found the selection in stock online limited (Falke's own site that is), and also they didn't seem to ship outside the EU.  I emailed them to ask about that; basically if there's a retailer in your country that stocks them, great, or if you're in the EU you can buy from your language-specific site.  Otherwise, tough shit.

A real gentleman and snob with style is not allowed, at any circumstanses, to expose his white legs under the trousers. That´s wy we always wear knee stockings or suspenders, doesn´t we?

Mimo: I have bought my Pantharella socks at Hans Allde, a gentlemens shop on Briger Jarlsgatan here in Stockholm. But they were really hard to find.

Horribly cheap, corrected grain leather, brightened up with some coloured laces ( not quite so brightly different as in the photo ) filling a gap in my shoe wardrobe and useful for bad weather.
Just as proof that it's not always a suede shoe day for me!

9.5G.  Over the years I've also had a few in 9.5F, or even10F like those pictured above, but it's usually a bad idea.  These I've had for donkeys' years and they're comfortable enough by now, but if I'm honest they weren't really a great fit to start with and I shouldn't have bothered.  My foolish youth.

 

I also have a slightly smaller left foot, perhaps a higher than average instep, and what my mother used to call "banana feet"!  In short, everything calls for bespoke shoes but my budget!  One of these days...

Got ya. I was trying to get perspective from your pictures if your shoes were short or if they were just really wide. I guess wide it is. At least you should be able to find closeouts and sales. They always seem to be really wide.

Actually these are the other way around - a regular 10F.  If you're not familiar with UK sizes, F is normally medium, G wide.  A few fancier makers including EG and CJ use "E" for medium, so F would be wide and G extra wide.  These old derbies are Loakes, so F is medium.

 

So actually, they were originally too long and narrow.  It must be the angle I take the pics from. My little camera seems to exaggerate perspective a lot...I will try a different angle next time!

 

Here you go (sorry, second one's a bit blurred):

More wet weather fair, but of a better quality. Chunky chukka boots, houndstooth socks from Timothy Everest & grey flannels.
