I think they look just as good while being $150 less and having speedhooks. 




Vibergs build quality isn't more impressive than Alden to me. I think you're way better off with the Aldens. Viberg also get a terribly stupid looking crease on the actual toe cap. I can't stand the way they look after wear. Just silly

Professional man of leisure! Looking great, Mike. Nobody does it better (isn't that a Bond theme song?)

That said, the Vibergs are at another level of build quality, which reflects the price difference. I suspect you'll still want a pair of Vibergs even if you purchase those Aldens.

 

I always wondered why Viberg boots were at a higher price point than Alden boots given you are getting less on paper (Viberg chromexcel boots at Alden shell cordovan boot prices). I've never handled or tried on a pair of Vibergs in real life - is the finish and construction really commensurate with the pricing premium in your opinion? It seems the materials used are more or less the same as Alden (Horween).

Great combo, @prez. Ravello and blue are great together. I might have to look into these CHUP socks. They make those in OTC?

I've got the Brown CXL PCTs and love them. I was a little reluctant with the natural welt, but now wear them all the time and even rock them at work on Fridays with chinos. Can't speak to the Vibergs.

These are terrific, I too have gone back to standard color 8 basic models with much love of the eggplant patina. Those are a perfect example of simple works every time.
