Buy whatever speaks to you.  There is no universally correct answer for this question.  If you see a shoe and like it, buy it.  You will be much happier with this approach instead of blindly following the advice of a stranger on the internet.  Wardrobe should be an expression of your own taste, not the taste of anonymous internet users. Based on your wardrobe and intended use, Vibergs sound like they might make more sense for you. Inevitably people will argue that they...
Keep me in mind if you ever come across any zip-fly heavy selvedge. (other than 501Z)

I will add that they have a variety of different types of suede from multiple tanneries.  Each tannery is world renowned.  Rancourt does not cut any corners in regard to the quality of materials when it comes to suede. http://www.rancourtandcompany.com/leathers Here is a shot of Snuff Repello that I waterproofed when new, and have not babied, nor thrashed over the past 18 months.  Conclusion: Their suede is as good as any.  They have different choices with different...
