I just bought a pair from www.globetrotter.de
A german website (use google translate if you need to!). They shipped to London for 10 Euros and took less than a week.
For sizing, you can try on Meindl Borneos or Burmas which are readily available in the UK and they will be the almost same - the Perfekts are a tinier bit roomier but only a slightly thicker pair of socks roomier.
They are fantastic boots but they do take some wearing in.
I'm a Meindle Perfect user, already used two pairs (in 15+ years....). But indeed they are heavy, very heavy and not easy to get snowproof. You need to maintain them very good to keep them kind of waterproof. But snowproof is almost impossible. In snow the leather will get soaked slowly even you've made it waterproof by good maintining and finaly you will get cold and wet feet on a multiple day hike thourgh snow.
In short for winter use in snow I would advice a shoe with a liner and not the Perfects. Those are great, but heavy, for all other seasons and terrains (except alpine with crampons, modern crampons aren't that compatible with Perfects and Perfects are a bit too flexy for crampon usage (heavy C not D).
Other nice gimmick of these Perfects is that you can kick very well and hard at stray bloodlusting dogs trying to bite you in the calves
