I'm with ya man. The wait for the slim's is nothing. Alden cigar wingtips took almost 2 years to ship, and some elected to wait for ravello which will likely take another 2 years. The Ryden boots as well, I'm sure will be at least next year.It's not just Viberg, many manufacturers don't deliver on time for various reasons. I don't really sweat it, gives me something awesome to continue to look forward too.
