OK, I think I found a shop with my size in Cordovan Indys.
I'm concerned about the sizing.
My longer foot is a 11 on the dot on a Brannock and the shorter is between a 10.5 and 11. Both widths are precisely in the middle of D and E. This is barefoot.
For what it's worth I wear a 11.5 in Asics running shoes.
I talked to J Gilbert while on the hunt for them (they don't have any) and they say that I should go down to a 10. Popular opinion says I should be a 10.5 from what I've gathered...
I don't plan on dressing up these often. More often than not I would be wearing medium thickness smart wool or people's socks.
I don't have anywhere to try Aldens on, unfortunately.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Sounds like you're trying to make the case for the 10.5D. You are probably correct.
