I second this. I have not been able to find my "happy size" in the Aberdeen last. 10.5D is too tight around the instep. 10E is almost right, but my fourth toe touches the front of the toe box. 10.5E is a bit loose all around but probably the best I can do. 10D on the Barrie last feels perfect, however.
Everyone's foot is different, however. So YMMV, as always. Just remember that internet sizing advice is worth exactly as much as you paid for it.
