I’m not sure what fit issues you have, but I have found the Hampton, Barrie and TB lasts work well with my high instep and wide feet. If you dialed in the Barrie you may give a look at Hampton. Oddly, I wear the same size in all three.
I think @M635Guy might be correct that my 975AC are seconds and might have lasting issues. This leads to some discomfort.

Sorry for newb question in advance. How can you guys purchase in cordovan LHS loafer in rare color? (Cigar, Ravello, or other rare color)

Is it through GMTO only? If so, does any Alden shop offer that?

Shops have their own make ups that are made as they are given allocations. It could be as few as 12 pair a year. You'll need to find a shop with a style you like and get on their waiting list. Depending on the color/model, you could be waiting a few years. I suggest building a relationship with a shop through purchases as well.
There's no MTO with Alden, and GMTOs would be organized through your relationship with a shop.
