    sorry to say, man but I find both quite bad. Club Monaco a little less bad than the other one, but for the price you can easily find so much better.

    Get something nicer you'll be happier, your better off buying what you want than to settle for some just ok. I remember when I bought my first pair of CPs, I never went back.

    They look pretty good, but they're lined in fabric, meaning a tear will develop in the lining before the upper/sole gets any serious wear. If your budget allows you to get something like CPs that's lined in leather, do that.

    I think it must be very tough to assemble these shoes in a fit...

    I like field jackets in general, and I like this one due to the color and the fabric which is quite fantastic + I thought size fits me. But it is quite 'different' since very distressed dye colour, so maybe that's the issue ?

    It's just the color. It will be hard to work in, and something else will almost always look better.

    vibergs are about $150 more, but the roughout suede might be a little tougher

    I like this jacket a lot. Velveteen fabric is perfect for fall and it's kinda romantic cut as a M65 field jacket. The robin blue color looks good on your coloring and it makes you look like a charming prince from a fairy tale. Maybe Captain Smith of Pocahontas, anyways, I would style it with a skinny printed silk scarf and fine wale corduroy jeans in burgundy or brown.

    I like the aldens better aesthetically...given alden quality, I'd prob need to try the vibergs in person to understand what justifies the extra 150
