I think there's only one width for 2040. Where does it say narrower?
From their latest bulletin.

This Service Boot is indicative of the military form of the 2040 Last in a slightly narrower E width and unstructured toe to communicate a sleek form for soldiers coming from the battlefield to battalion headquarters

Wow. That's very... just very.

Maybe they're trying to say that it's narrower than 2045, the other Munson last.

The 2040 is based on the Munson last, which is typically EE. So I think all they are saying is that this is a slightly narrower version of the Munson last. But this isn't a narrower version of Viberg's 2040 last.

Also, is it especially important to communicate sleek forms specifically for the trip from battlefield to headquarters? What about from the barracks to the battlefield? Or the mess hall to the latrine?

Yea, I guess that statement only affects people like me, after getting misinformed by DR themselves during one of our email exchange that the 2040 last was in EE width :lookaround: Not a bad strategy DR.. :lol:

I ordered the bone chamois lactae hevea service boots from DR last week. They called me immediately and interrogated me about my Viberg sizing. They arrived today and they are awesome.
Yup they did the same to me when I bought my natty cxl horsebutt. Had to basically argue with them about my size...

I had a really pleasant convo with Jason about my 2030 size.
