Have you tried 11D or 11E, out of curiosity?
Nice collection...you need an NST!
Hate to say I told you so....but, well....you know.....
I also think that a 10EEE would do you right as well....
And remember, while Alden sizing is not nearly as wacky as Vass, it still is more than other makers I have dealt with.
IME, AE and Carmina sizing are the most consistent.
It's comforting to know that some Alden vets here have sizing issues too. You would think their feet fit every last perfectly by the size of their collections. Tongue pads are pretty much a necessary evil for me and if that lets me wear beautiful shoes, then I'm game.
BTW, Trunk Clothiers has a few pairs on sale at 50% off right now. I've purchased from them before. They ship Fedex and in a "friendly" way. After VAT reduction, they're about 200 pounds plus 20 shipping to NA.
11 would def be too long.
Hmm. Now that's a thought. Damnit. Fit is so complicated. Not really sure if that would work as my toes splay out, but worth at try.
For the record I wear 10.5 3E in all AE lasts, 10 EEE UK in Carmina Detroit, 10 H UK Bonafe, 44.5 H Vass and 10 EE UK Lobb 7000.
If only it were easy to find in my size (6D)... That's why my choices are limited.
Just for reference, I get almost as much overall width and girth from an Alden 10E Barrie as the AE 65 in 10 3E.
Yeah, my feet are complicated. Lol. My right foot is extra wide at the ball because of a bunion that I'm not having corrected anytime soon, and the left one is narrower at the ball but longer in the toe by .5 size and the big toe splays out due to a previous bunion surgery that was overcorrected/botched. The 10.5 E Barrie was painfully tight on my right bunion, and on the side of my splayed left big toe.
Ha! Sorry if this is TMI. The last's that fit me best are actually the AE 511, JL 7000, and Vass U.
I'm guessing you are a 6D in Trubalance/Barrie, so that would make you 6.5D TTS, so you'd probably want 6.5D in Aberdeen/Grant/Plaza...
Perhaps these boots could be a nice addition - a touch more formal, but a really fantastic makeup, and available in 6.5D!
These this morning.

A few notes:
The recent family shots have been totally amazing. For me, the beauty is in the variations of color, whether due to age, batch, whatever. Really incredible stuff! Thank you gentlemen.
Recently moved to the South Shore of Boston. Not that it makes a lick of difference, but it's kind of nice to know the factory less than an hour away.
My wife: You don't actually post pictures of your own shoes on there, do you?
Me (channeling Fletch): Me? No, no--never, never.
Their factory is only a few trees away from 495, and I've driven past it numerous times. Never bothered to actually get off the highway and check it out, but I've seen pictures and it doesn't exactly seem like a visitor-friendly spot. I wish they had a "factory shop" and sold irregulars there, in person only.
You may want to try leffot
they can add you size as a special order and you need to paid full deposit for it.
I ordered a 6D Naval boot and tanker from leffot!
I may have posted these whiskey gunboats before...but not with these new chups socks! Would recommend for those who like cushioning and suffer from cold toes.
