It seems like most people get/recommend the same size in Barrie as the Trubalance last;

 

Is it uncommon that I wear a 9.5 in Trubalance and 10 in Barrie?

i would say no. i am a perfect 8.5 barrie so i ordered 8.5 roy, but it was a little big on me.
i have worn them for ~3 years without shoe trees so they have shaped to my foot fairly well but i would be curious to see how 8 roy would have worked for me.

I'm normally 12D/E. 12D is usually pretty good fit, but a touch snug on the sides at time, depending on the last. (12D on the AE 1 last is great with thin socks, 12E with thicker socks). Would someone who is 12E wear a 12D in the barrie?

i would size down 1/2 size from your normal size. going tts in the barrie is alot like, you know, when you get a hot dog with too much bun; like 1/2" extra on both ends? the sausage is dwarfed in comparison to the bun. sure you have a lot of room for your sport pepper, and pickle, a line of mustard and ketchup and mayo (if your into that sort of thing), but you bought the bierwurst for the meaty, garlicy, fatty flavor. you could go down a bun width but will still be too long for the sausage. so sizing down 1/2 size ensures that their is just the right ratio of bun to meat allowing still plenty of room for either a thin or thick sock. i hope that clears it up

I've never heard or read sizing advice stated this way. But I think I like it.

Damn bun. We've all been there ......

That's interesting, have 2 pairs of alden shells, both #8 and they don't seem to welt up after a few wears - no matter it dries up - maybe its a cigar thing?
