I don't know that I'm necessarily qualified to answer that, I own a pair of Cliftons and Strawfuts, both in 11.5 D, but I don't know which last they're made on.  They both fit me well.  The Rutledge has an elongated toe box, though not exaggeratedly so, so at first it feels like it's a little bit too long in the toe.  But it seems that for such a toe box, you're not necessarily supposed to fill it out.  I find that they fit very well and are very comfortable.  They feel...
They are gorgeous and I'm a bit sick to part with them.  However I need to thin the herd - I've got more shoes than I need and some expenses coming up that I have to deal with.  I work in academia so these shoes don't get enough sunlight (I have a pair of brown and burgundy wingtips, non AE, that pair better with most of what I wear to the office, and some black cap toes, Clifton, for more formal occasions, and that's not mentioning my spectators, Strawfut, and boot...

I've enjoyed this thread for some time, but this is my first time posting.  I have to thin the shoe herd a bit, so I just wanted to give a heads up that I put the shoes pictured (The Rutledge in 11.5D) up for auction.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/151104386464?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
