My heel to toe length is a solid 11C (as fitted at the AE store).  But the 11C doesn't fit me; it's too tight.  I got my own Brannock device.  I measure an 11.5 B/C heel to ball.  The 11.5C is a little loose.  The 11.5B is a little tight.   I actually went with the Alden shell cap toe in 11.5B, on order from Alden NY.  Shell cordovan is generally a little looser than the calf version.  However I wear the Neumok (also #5 last) in 11.5B, and they fit great.   The advantage...
Ah, thank you for the clarification.  This potentially opens up new opportunities.
I hear you, I'm in between a B and a C.  Literally, right in the middle. 
True, but I didn't realize how easy it is to screw up shoe sizing.
Carpe diem, dude!
Let us know how you make out.
No, you should not live with it.  I suggest you get a fitting (anywhere) and ask the salesperson to show you your measurements.  Read up on measurements here   http://brannock.com/cgi-bin/start.cgi/brannock/instructions.html   This is how I discovered that I had been fitted incorrectly (after trying on 15 different sizes of Park Avenue shoes).  I discovered my correct size by accident.  A proper Brannock measurement would have gotten me there in one shot.
You're usually a 9D in AE? Or some other type of shoe(s)?  You have two photos here.  What are their sizes?
I think that's a Barrie.  They don't make a Balmoral Modified as far as I know.   http://www.silver-and-gold.com/posts/tags/alden/
I'll post something tonight or maybe Saturday morning.
