If I'm size 9 in Virgil, do I take same size in Brigadier?

What’s the deal with this seasons sanjuro jacket. I just saw an iteration at Pancho and Lefty. Looks like it’s not down filled. Can’t find any other places that cary it or other color ways. Appreciate any more info
The quest is over! I just received my mud dyed ICT Virgils!Hello there!
Not too long ago I spent a semester abroad in Japan and I fell in love with the country.
While I was there, I also got to explore visvim. Spending time in the stores, touching the products and doing more research about the brand changed my perception of visvim. It altered from it being an interesting, but too expensive brand, towards it being a brand which is expensive, but in a way worth it.
Recently I wanted to buy myself a pair of mud-dyed ICT Virgils. I love them not just because of the beautiful color and the interesting production and dying process, but also because how it connects me to Japan.
With the shoes having been immersed in the mud of Japanese rice fields for many days, I will, in a way, always walk on Japanese soil wherever I go and it will remind me of the beautiful time I've spent there.
Then I bought myself a pair on Grailed and I got scammed. lol
Now I am pondering if I should get a pair of www.humanbehaviour.com (http://www.humanbehaviour.com.hk/showroom/model/F0027/templateProductDetails.do?ParentId=1203123303468¤tPage=4&editCurrentLanguage=1161381307766&webId=1161381307749&productId=1553050455170121052)
It's of course more expensive than the Grailed deal, but I get a brand-new pair and I can start the wearing/ aging process myself which is also kinda intriguing.
Also, I will be less prone to getting scammed. (HB is still legit, right?!)
So the question is:
Would you recommend waiting for another iteration of the mud-dyed Virgils to be released in visvim's online store, wait for another deal on Grailed, or to buy the shoes of a proxy like Human Behavior?
Thank you for the help!
P.S. Sorry for the long text.
I always thought site was a moody one, considering they ship from JP to US anyway. There is always inconsistencies I guess. END is notorious for marking stuff up. If you have the audience and they will buy, then why not?Saw something interesting today, looks like prices on BlueOwl for some items is significantly cheaper than on Visvim's own US webstore.

I wonder why that is.
I think you can put stuff on sale after two seasons for Visvim. That's usually when I see Ssense and MrPorter put their stuff on sale. European stores seem to traditionally have more freedom, perhaps due to laws around when sales can happen.business so tough recently it looks like stores can decide the pricing more freely in order to clear the inventory. stores seem to be able to apply discounts now as well (it used to be forbidden by Vis)
I believe the US store is now local stock and no longer ships from JP, could be wrong though.=

Problem is Porter usually has a low stock of each item/size. Some don’t make it to sale and can go quick if they do.Hipstore /Mr Porter... have always been good for Vis when the sales start. I have picked up a lot of things 50-60% off...
(probably now JP retail).
My Mrs grabbed a pair of brown roland joggers for £220... which whilst expensive... seemed like a fffing bargain
