    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.
