Vibergs are typically out of his range new, but he might be able to get a pair second-hand. Also, I know the brand is a bit controversial in terms of quality, but Fiorentini&Baker might be to his liking. Blake-stitched, I believe, and with a more similar aesthetic to those in this thread than AE, RW, etc. Back before the illness took hold, I had a number of pairs, since there is a big retailer in San Francisco, and they were always solid for me. Crazy cheap on EBay.
