In my experience, if you are 9.5 in Barrie/Trubalance then you'd be 10 in Plaza.

That mock-up of the Alt Wein looks a little spooky...  

 

It is really a storm welt?  I thought the original one was a flat welt...

Agreed. I am 9.5d in Trubalance, 10d in Leydon and 10d in Plaza is too narrow for my feet so definitely go with half size from Trubalance/Modified last.

Copy says reverse 360 welt. Is that the same as a storm welt? The Innsbruck I believe is more casual than their usual #8 alt wien. Here's a version in CXL. I think it's going to be just this but with #8 and matched eyelets.

Think I read to go up a width from Barrie (i.e. 10.5D to 10.5E), which is what I do with Grant and Aberdeen, but can't find those posts in this massive thread...

Go with your Aberdeen size.

As others said, you will want to go with the 10, as it is not as general us of a last as the Barrie is.

...but they show the previous version with hidden eyelets and a flat welt.  I'm not trying to stir controversy, but I'd like to have it rendered explicit.  If someone else is calling them I'll avoid doubling up, but I'd like to hear specific answers...
