How many wears do you have on them?  If the one fits fine, the other will probably come around on it's own.
I too, am a 9.5US and I wear the Uetam loafers in 8.5UK
From what I understood, it would be a maximum of 2 shell makeups.  Looks like one is an armagnac frankenstitch boot, and the other is a bourbon longwing.
Should be US - 1 So if Brannock is 9.5US, you should be 8.5UK for Uetam, if that last will work for your foot at all.  Could be called narrow, and it could be said that the instep is not especially high, however, it is consistent with what I experience with other loafers.
Might make sense to just get measured with a brannock device.  It will give you one single measurement.  Then you can use that as a reference point when asking for sizing advice for specific lasts.
7D US Barrie should generally mean 6.5UK Forrest
Is this the color they call Peanut?
Don't get me wrong, there really is something about.  Especially when you get a real nice hide.  Just seems that nobody can quite put their finger on what it is.
Some will name shine, durability, and reasons like that, but for many (and most won't admit it or don't realize it), its the scarcity, and the prestige that comes with the high cost. The more scarce, the more coveted. The more expensive, the stronger the desire.  (Some interesting consumer behavior studies have been done on this one) Not saying everyone or anyone in particular, so nobody needs to get defensive.
FWIW, when I was at the SF Proper Kit show in November, they did have multiple [different] Kudu swatches, as I recall.  Maybe 3 in total. I don't remember much else about it, but I think one of them was darker than the natural fleshy color that we are accustom to seeing from Carmina.   Edit: I think this Llubi boot in the middle is what I'm talking about...
