Right, that question of quality is the thing. I have never held a pair of White's horsehides in my hands, though I will soon. But I briefly owned two different pairs of Viberg HH's (had to sell because of fit). Honestly, it was just a gorgeous leather. Rich and distinctive, without being overly dressy. A slight glossiness to them, but not as much as CXL. I talked to lots of folks, both at Whites, Bakers, and Vibergs, but also on the boards, and everyone who had HH agreed that it was a fairly thick, and very tough, leather that wore well over the years.
Again, I basically fell in love with the Viberg HH (and I've had boots in oil tan leather and in CXL), but I will let you know how White's seems once they arrive.
