From what I have seen of the 1220, the shape is vastly different from the other two. The shoulders are quite strong and measure a bit wide, and the chest is slim, but not RLBL slim. On my size 40, the typical measurements of a 1220 are 19" shoulders, 43" chest; conversely, RLBL is 18.25" shoulders and 41" chest.
You have narrower feet than I do (13C) and I have tried several C&J lasts, all of which are too wide for even me. I also have been loafer shopping and was impressed with the styling on the following Alden: http://aldenshop.com/Store/DrawProdu...ageID=&Action= And since it is on the Aberdeen last, it will be inherently narrow. They're not suede, but I fancy the style.

Buying your tux is the best possible advice. http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop...1_10050_101786 That is a forum favorite with classic styling. If you wear the tuxedo twice, you're in a better position than renting.
$100 Brooks Brothers gift card. Will either trade for close value to another store or sell. Please PM offers. Don't really have an idea of trading in mine. If it is a sale, it is for a pair of AE from allaboutshoes or for a pair of seconds during the ongoing tent sale. I also have no problem keeping this and buying something during thee sale next week, so please don't low ball me.
