    That is because I designed it and Phil did it MTO for me. I think he will make it again upon request.

    Check these out here, Canadian store that offers Viberg. I don't know much about viberg, so there may be other stores, but all I know of is this one. Prices are steep. Not sure what the average is, however.

    I use this guy for my custom shell straps. Very reasonably priced.
    Tell him I sent you.

    Plenty of threads already exist to discuss Viberg. We have even done a few rounds of Style Forum group makeups.

    Also try hitting CitiShoes as they stock the Whiskey LHS. Don't know if they have any in house right now, but it is something they carry.

    I am a little late to the game tonight, but man those are awesome. A very cool color from that perspective and lighting.

    Don, Nice piece of horse on your feet. They pants complement the shoes well. DC's dark edging is a nice design, but I personally prefer the antique edging. I have both and they feel like different shoes. -Mike

    :D

    I have color 4. It is just ok. Too red to be very versatile IMO. Seldom do i wear it. On the whole I prefer color 8, cigar, ravello, and black over color 4. :nodding:

    PTB. Vintage Hanover. Bought NOS a few years ago on ebay for just over $200. Best deal on footwear I have ever gotten. They are built like a tank. The quality is very high - easily on a par with Alden. Had they said "Alden" I suspect they may have fetched somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000. In doing research and corresponding with Horween, I would put their production in the late 1970's.

    They are a great pair of shoes, just not nearly as versatile as, say, color 8 or cigar.

    RTP, thanks for your kind words.

    All of you gentlemen, thank you.

    Yesterday was a not so good day at work and the kind words and camaraderie here on this forum is a bright spot in the day.
