I think you made a mistake in the jacket length.
I believe that 9.5E will be too big. I recommend 9E.

I take a US11.5D in shoes on Alden Barrie last and a UK11.5E in shoes on C&J 337 and 324 lasts. I wear a UK11E in shoes on C&J 325 last. I wear a 12D in shoes on C&J 236, 341 and 325 lasts.

Same last?

At first I assumed (and, I think, many people have assumed) that C&J when making shoes under various US labels (RL, BB, Barneys, etc.) would simply remark UK standard width shoes with its corresponding US standard width size; that is, it would remark go up 1 full size and go down 1 width. For example, I assumed that...
