I’ve always been
Me too. 13s in both. Brannock is 14C. My feet are a bit narrow so going down a full size works.
I find the width to be very similar, I think the HM boot might be a wider but the cxl
If your HM size and Indy size are 9.5 then you're "normal". It seems that your Brannock leans to a 10 or maybe 9.75. 90% of Alden sellers say go down 1/2 size from your Brannock/dress shoe size and/or 1 size from tennis shoes or sneakers. When I go buy the boots I'll check out a 9.5 just to be safe. As far as I've read, ONLY the Shoemart says take anything in Truebalance on your Brannock size. Everyone else says got 1/2 down from that. (of course, everyone has different feet) I don't want to be one of those guys on eBay selling his Indy's for $300 because they don't fit correctly..... 😅
You’re spot on my about my feet. The associate that I trust the most told me, I’m a 9.75 and always go based of my biggest foot. Therefore, I slowly started telling myself I’m a brannock 10.

That last part is hilarious! Lol! 🤣 I have to admit, I love those kind of guys, my collection largely has benefited from them 😈

l love looking at @mdubs photos, not only excellent footwear photography, but they are all in such a pristine condition. I only wish I could do the same. I can't seem to wear a pair without starting "Patina" within a few minutes :)
I thought his website was a store when I first visited it.
