OSB actually says to size down one full size from dress shoes with thin or no socks and half a size down with regular socks. Tim from independence, I believe from earlier in the OSB thread, said to size down half a size from trail oxfords.
Yeah unfortunately to my dismay, that's what I thought as soon as I put them on. Any reason why you're suggesting also going wider in addition to half a size down? I figured I'd just go down half a size to 6D.
Nice! I just got the same shoes as my first pair of Alden's. I tested out my size with the 975 and thought I was set with 6.5D. Trying on the natty cxl ptbs, I feel like I should go down half a size. Ball of my feet feels right though. Thoughts?Where it creasesBig toe on right foot
