wow, pretty incredible!  Congrats!
I guess it might be boredom with the "standard" look but I thought I'd try putting some black crème polish on my Colour 8 PCT Service Boots.  I wasn't too nervous as I'd done something similar to some Dublin leather Wolverine 1K boots a while back and liked the results.   Here is a pic from Nov of last year:     After application of the black crème:     I couldn't get the lighting exactly the same but they are definitely darker and I think exhibit more...

 Man, I'm sorry I posted this before I read the subsequent back and forth.  No desire to derail this thread as I do really love Aldens as well.
 I have a few Vibergs and quite a few Alden boots.  I love them both; they're just quite different.  I would say the build quality and materials on the Vibergs are a notch above Aldens but not by a huge amount.  I just love the variety and the option to choose boots from different makers every morning.
Sorry, no Skye 2 here, but what color shell are your Harlechs?
 You guys have been awesome to work with.  I got a pair of the olive Guidi calf boots on the first run.  My favorite Vibergs. Glad to see you guys on this thread.
