I own the 1907
which I believe is the same fit as the jcrew model (875 should also be the same I would guess). If you have a Red Wing store I'd go try on some 875s. Otherwise, I found through trial and error with my 1907s that they fit true to size. I wear a 12 in sneakers and 11.5 in most dress shoes and ended up staying with the 11.5Ds in the 1907. I actually bought the 11s first because I heard from some people these run a little big, but found they were too narrow and shorter than I expected. I believe they do run true to size if your feet are normal to wide in width.
