On certain brands of shoes (like Alden), yes.  I can't be 100% sure, but I don't believe Rancourt offers a combination last like that, even for custom.  Don't take my word for it, give Katie a shout and she'll get you squared away.
I can't judge length by photos, but yes, the width looks far too wide for your feet.
True enough...I was just confused by the email that you posted.
Isn't this just saying that you can't order a pair of shoes that have 2 different sizes from their readymade line?  As I see it, this isn't talking about whether or not once can use a $50 giftcard on the readymades.
My pleasure.  I'm a 9 on the brannock device, and wear a 9 in Allen Edmonds #5 last (generally considered pretty true to size), so I'm an 8.5 in Rancourt Beefrolls, an 8.5 in Rancourt ranger mocs, an 8.5 in OSB trail oxfords (ranger moc by a different name) and an 8 in OSB Beefrolls. Hope that helps!
It really depends on what dress shoe/brand you're talking about.  Generally speaking, when people are talking about sizing down from somewhere, unless they specify what brand, they're talking in relation to your brannock size. Dress shoes come in hundreds of brands and lasts, so one could be talking about dress shoes on an Allen Edmonds #5 last (park ave, strand, etc...which I wear in a 9) or dress shoes on an Alden Barrie last (which I wear in an 8.5).  That's why the...

...isn't that what I said?
I don't think pain is ever a good thing.  I do, however, think that it's important that penny loafers fit nice and snug out of the box, to take into account the lack of laces and the stretch of CXL.  Mine are undoubtedly snug and as tight as I'm willing to go, but they don't hurt at all.  I'd never buy a pair of trail oxfords/ranger mocs that are that snug (sidenote: the penny loafer and ranger moc are on different lasts, so I'm an 8.5 in both, and they both fit...
