Just wanted to share my expirience.
Went to CM and tried the following, beefroll and new venetians loafers. I'm TTS 9D and wear Alden 8.5 Barrie/9D Plaza lasts. For Rancourt beefroll and venetians with extra thin loafer socks I was spot on wearing 8.5. So for me sizing down .5 size on Rancourts works.
