I could be wrong and I'm just speculating here, but it's entirely possible that these retailers are frustrated with the small shop that is Viberg.  We as a group have a lot of patience with the brand because we appreciate what goes into it and it's totally worth it to us.  But when you're a retailer that's in business to turn over product and restock as quickly as possible, a small batch boutique brand like Viberg isn't going to pay their rent.  Again, just a guess, but it seems logical to me.  We think...would they really sever ties over an incorrect order?  Well, yeah, possibly.  Especially if they waited a long time for fulfillment of the order and it was ultimately wrong after all that.  If I were a retailer and all of my product was from companies like Viberg, I'd probably be out of business in short order.  I'd carry Viberg because I'm passionate about the brand personally, but I'd also carry Red Wings so that I could put food on my table.

That was an odd one but that was also over a couple pairs of boots they had for many months. Not a new order.

I wondered if it had to do with losing key inventory right before the busy/profitable Christmas season that led to some behind the scenes issues.

Who knows. The answer is likely to be really boring though. peepwall[1].gif

There's a few one-off collabs and former stockists that haven't been removed.

I see.

 

I'm assuming this applies to Haven and Gentry?

Funny, I'm reading all these things about retailers pulling out and it reminds me to check out some of their websites for new collars and saw this:

possible natural chromepak makeup coming??

 

Hoping to hear more about awesome new makeups rather than everyone pulling out.

Haven still works with Viberg I was recently in there store and they have there new collaboration coming Dec/Jan. They confirmed unlike other stockists they like to do one collaboration a year not restock like others making them more of a limited edition

Viberg doesn't need these stockists. While such relationships are important for different reasons, is Viberg not doing these small boutiques a favor by making them a small batch of some special make up? Lending their brand to make a store more reputable? Sure, that's a two way street but who the fuck is Standard and strange outside of their state? Now they're a Viberg stockist (or were). money is to be made in the stock they sell on their own site or at bigger outlets such as Mr Porter. The snobs at Tate and Yoko should stick to their shitty overpriced naked and famous denim anyways (I've had bad experiences with them, just speaking my mind wink.gif

For all you 310 fans (or fans of anything other than the 2030 last) have you heard of Radiance Blue?

Couldn't sleep and just went on instagram to see who was posting what with #viberg and came across these aged bark 310. Pretty good looking (even if the last isn't for me)

they were also showing a waxed flesh on 2040 and pit bison on 1045
