post #1201 of 6514

Has anyone tried the red dog leather? Any thoughts? Any Pictures?

Hey, I just found out that Viberg is going to add a 20% surcharge for custom orders. The MTO 145 oxfords that I just posted cost around $620, the new MTO 145s that I want to order will cost $765. Has anyone else heard about this?

^^^ Haven't heard this, but it makes sense.

20% is way too steep IMO. They are already a pretty premium price. I am about to place an order and if they tell me it is 20% above my previously quoted price, I would not order them

Yeah, boots that were in the mid-600s a few months ago are now in the mid-800s.  The new website prices are typical now apparently.  It's a-whole-nother level....  Great boots, but that's SERIOUS money...

They are in 750-800$ retail and with the price increase, we are talking, 1xxx$ range here in Europe or 3,x pair of red wings or 1,5 pairs of Trickers.

Styleforummarket will be doing exclusive MTO "group orders" in the near future. That's about 99% certain. They will be presold only, but we will be able to offer free shipping to the CONUS, and a very low flat rate to most of the world, and we will be exempt from the MTO charge. We have a good relationship with Brett and Guy, and while we cannot undercut their prices, for obvious reasons, we will be able to get you actual, exclusive, product, that will be decided on by just a few of you. And there will be some interesting incentives that only I will be able to offer, because of the unique model of the Styleforummarket system. You'll have to stay tuned for that.

Cheers,

Fok.

Viberg should not make the same mistake as many brands before. As they feel the hype they get dollar signs in their eyes. All becomes more and more too much business and the heritage and authenticity gets lost. Being a European who has lived a couple years in Canada I have seen this a couple times. Canadian brands weren't the best in properly being confident about their values and selling their strength in the past. But I guess the west coast is more laid back (I lived in Toronto...) and I am sure (hope) that Viberg won't go that way.
Having said all that I am currently waiting for a pair from their web shop I ordered a couple weeks ago. I'll be in the US next week and will pick them up there. Keeping the price in mind I was quite surprised that I had to add 75/150$ for shipping! Something I have never come across before when I ordered something above 150$.
Also, even if we now talking about shoes that are more high fashion than really workwear, their website used to be "workboot". I don't know any "worker" who could afford a shoe around 500$!! Maybe that is different in North America...
