Another vote for C&J. +1 on the advice to go down a full size, however the narrow width of your foot might be an issue. I'm a 10.5C and ordered the Belgrave in 9.5E (337 last) and felt like I was swimming in it, particularly at the heel. With B width hooves, I think you're gonna run into this same problem, sorry to say.

BR online doesn't show available in store stock. A call to a nice lady at BR however showed limited quantites in Altlanta, Kansas City, Houston, and Dallas for beeswax - Miami, Omaha, and Westport for black. Atlanta was a little funky at first, taking a credit card order over the phone - just talk with a manager and it's all good.
BR in Atlanta had a handful of beeswax in store as of yesterday. 404-231-4905, $22 shipped.
