From what I've read on the forums, it's suggested to go down half a size from your brannock size. I just got this response back from Katie @ Rancourt.
No problem. Loafers run pretty true to size. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend going down a half size – at least not from your AE size. Normally, for the best fit in our hand sewns, we recommend going down a half size from your Brannock measurement. Anything in CXL will have the most give and stretch.
I hope that helps.
I did tell her that my AE 5 last size is similar to my brannock size so I was initially confused at the first two sentences. I'm a size 6.5EEE on the AE 5 last and size 6 D/E on my left foot and 6.5 D/E on my right foot for the brannock size. I'm just not sure if I should go with D width or E width. I'm thinking D width since I expect it to stretch and I'm in between widths.
Edit: Per Katie's suggestion, she suggests I go with the narrower width (D) which I was leaning towards! Hopefully that helps you out.
