    I have the tan horsehide service boots, and I agree with what others said... leather is thicker, and construction/quality is great (on-par) with Alden. My Alden boot collection is a bit more "dressy" than my Viberg boots (exception being my Indys), but I think the Viberg's look great for street wear (jeans or even chinos) & just have a nice look to them; so they do keep a spot in the growing rotation.

    Pricey, for sure, and if I had to chose one or the other, I'd probably feel I'd get more value putting that money towards some shell Alden's, but it all depends on what you want/need in a boot.

    Thank you! I really do too... Unfortunately, it was from one of their "Ends for Friends" events in which Mike gets a bunch of fabric ends from factories or something and can only make as many shirts as the yardage supports. In this particular case, it was one shirt. Sorry! :-(

    Looking great in your Color 8 PTBs! Enjoy them my friend.



    Looking good in your light brown LWBs. From that distance I am not exactly sure which model either!

    That's what they looked like to me too or burnished tan. I have the J.Crew tobacco, but sadly will be selling them soon since I found my unicorn when I landed the whiskey LWBs :)

    Has anyone bought shoes from Sherman Brothers? I plan to pick up some color 8 chukka boots and they seem to have the best price & are in stock.

    Has anyone seen these shoes - are they tan as advertised or lighter ie. Milkshake suede. I like this make-up and could make tan work (I'd prefer snuff), but milkshake is too light for me.

    I joined this forum couple of months ago and thanks to all of you I was able to get into the Ravello Cap Toe Boots waiting list from DC and I know it is going to take forever but at least I am on the waiting list :(. I also got my first Aldens Ravello LWB which I just love :).

    Now I am looking for #8 PTB and I need you help because I don't know where should start looking for them. Would you know something about where can I get them?

    Thanks.

    This is a relatively simple acquisition unless you're looking for antique edges or something.
