Working at home today, so much more casual than yesterday. Navy CXL and denim!
Crazy how different these Kirks fit compared to the Nordy/USA made Sea Islands. These are 9B (my 5-last is 9D; 9D might have been best in these but I was attempting to control for volume, knew the cxl would give slightly, and wear them with thin no-show socks), yet there was NO way I could make 9.5D work in the Sea Island, even knowing the suede would stretch.

So your advice would be TTS/possibly down one width on the Kirks, up a full length on the Sea Islands?
I found the latter to be true for me, but haven't tried on the Kirks.
