 I can correlate on some of your references as I've got AE Strands, I previously owned an Alden on the Leydon and have three Viberg boots on the 2030 last. -  I am 8D TTS on the Brannock.-  The AE Strands are 7.5D and if I had to do it again, I'd go 7.5E.-  I had the Leydon in 8Eand I should have gotten an 8D (advice on Leydon is usually TTS).-  I have one 2030 boot and it's a 7.5.  There's ample room although with thick socks, they're okay.-  I have two 2030 boots in 7. ...

I had to tell the tailor it was okay to remove the white herringbone tape. They came out perfectly.Good luck!
Thanks for posting. Very nice indeed.
