Hey tubes... welcome from a fellow Oz denizen. 4x the price? Lemme guess, would it be Parker & Co that you saw those shoes? I hear the Carmina e-store is pretty reasonably priced (ex VAT of course), in the vicinity of $350 to $500+ for a decent pair of shoes. The problem, as you surmised, is knowing which last fits you. Do you at least know your UK sizing in a wide-lasted shoe? E.g. the C&J Westfield.
