Viberg for Styleforummarket Order #2: Suggestions - Page 13
Styleforum Top Picks
As somebody just catching up/educating myself on Viberg, I need to find myself some examples of the 2040 last, knowing only the 2030. Also will need to figure out sizing, but that's not such a concern. Is the brogued cap toe similar to that on the nattys that Rydenfan just posted? (Btw, those look tremendous.) I can go either way on that --- brogue on just a normal captoe. The dainite sounds good.
EDIT: 2040 looks great to me. Sizing figured out. Can't wait to do this - been looking for a loden boot for a while but color has never been dark enough for my liking. This is perfect.

Thanks Fok for the swatches.
I think going for a chukka would be a good alternative to all the service boots.
How about the Ebony Essex Roughout chukka on a 2030 last with a 2060 beige vibram sole? Would def be 100% in for that one. I think it would look like this with the above leather...would slay...
But there is a pair on ebay of the exact boots I have -in the loden green--that looks ok on my monitor in terms of the color, so worth checking out:
It's a super dark color. Under some lighting conditions, it looks nearly black. I like those pictures from Ebay, which show the deep, mossy, character of the color. I can't for the life of me get the color on camera, but those Ebay pictures are pretty close.
Okay, so, tan bison boot (scout or service? I sorta like the Scout for a plain toe - it's a little more special) on the 110 last, loden green service boot, maybe a brogued captoe, on the 2040 last, and an ebony essex roughout chukka, maybe on the 2030 last, maybe on a wedge sole? Oh man, all those sound really good. I want a pair too, but it's hard to choose. Probably tan bison, but the other choices are enticing...
