Would a C be wider than a D? If so, that would make sense since the Van last I believe is slightly more narrow than the Barrie last. I would probably choose an 8.5E.  However, I am wondering if I bought a size more narrow, would be possible to have them stretched out.  I will probably take the plunge and hope for the best. Thanks!

C is narrower than D. And I wouldn't count of shell LHS stretching much any. I wear 10.5E/11D Barrie and I went with 11D LHS after getting the chance to try them on in person. I'd say the Van does fit slightly smaller than Barrie in the same size, and most people want a loafer to be snug since you can't resort to tying the laces tighter...

Good luck.

^^ would you say the heel of the van last fits a bit more snug than the barrie last?

Looking for the 9D list and 9E lists.

Maybe we should post the lists here in .pdf format (?). Seems like some get them and some don't. Looked in my spam and don't have anything.

Looking into getting an NST boot on the barrie last. Has anyone found the sizing to be different than their barrie last shoes? The only barrie last boot I own, the J. Crew perf cap toe, fits true to size for me whereas my barrie shoes fit -.5. Just wondering if this is the case for the NST boot as well.

I have the same opinion!

My barrie tanker boot (basically an NST) fits narrower than barrie shoes in the same size. I wear the same size in both but others do size up. If going up a width is possible in the model you want, you may prefer that.
