    I just received the English Tan Latigo version of the same derby. Considered the CXL, but decided it was too close to the SF MTO I recently received.

    First time posting but long time lurker. I'm also considering taking the plunge on these country derby's from brooklyn clothing. I'm a 10E on brannock and wear a 10 in the OSB trench. Those are the only two reference points I have. Should I go for a 9 or 10 in the 2040? Or should I just wait until I find a 9.5? All that said, I know it's a crap shoot.

    From Vibergs site i'm gathering you should stick with a 10?

    The 2040 is a single E width Munson style last. The Munson last was developed for military use by analyzing x-rays of the human foot and adopting a more anatomically shaped toe box. From above the Munson last appears flatter on the medial side of the foot and rounder on the lateral. Our 2040 has a low heel and narrow waist with a slight bump in the toe. The 2040 is a great option for those who appreciate the fit of the 2030, but prefer a more traditional boot shape.

    Correct, it's a crap shoot. I am a 10.5 in most shoes, 10 in Alden Barrie and Trubalance and a 9.5 in all my Vibergs. But again, it's a crap shoot and you should not take sizing advice from the internet.

    It is for me too! High arches and flexible feet bones acct for it (so I finally learned from a foot dr).

    Boots & denim look great. Well done. Jeans especially, look like the perfect hem width for you.

    And having just picked up a 2040 last Viberg, I couldn't agree more. I always like the look of the 2030 but just don't think it would work for me. 2040 is a great compromise with a similar appearance but a bit more room.

    For me lengthwise they are identical at the same size.

    My observation is from having

    1) a size 7.5c 975 (width is ok, too short)
    2) a size 8c 975 (perfection with medium wool dress socks)
    3) a size 7.5 2030 boot (width is ok, too short)
    4) a size 8d barrie boot (width is slightly snug up front, but wide in the heel with normal cotton athletic socks)
    5) a size 8 2030 (perfection with medium wool boot socks, quite close my 8c 975s. Note that the 975s are actually slightly longer)

    I will say my size 8 2030 brandy boots feel oddly less wide than my size 7.5 cxl 2030... at least a bit more snug in the heel and instep, but they're also a bit less built so there is that.

    There is absolutely no way I could do an 8.5e in a barrie boot. My foot would swim in them. I can wear my 8d barrie boot with the boot socks I use for my vibergs, a bit snug up front, but not painful.

    Can anyone confirm that this is the 310 last with the turned up toe?

    It appears to be, but I'm not 100% sure. Whatever it is, it's phenomenal.
