No word on the smooth CXL?
I was wondering this myself as it isn't specified. My guess is 2030 too, though it does look like the 110 in some photos.
I thought 110 at first too, but you can clearly see the last labeled 2030 in the photos of the shoe being made.
Definitely 2030 last
Sorry--wasn't clear; I was talking about the smooth CXL, although I believe both the smooth and roughout are going to Mr. Porter...
Interestingly enough, I heard back from Mr. Porter customer service this morning (I had e-mailed them at the same time I e-mailed Viberg yesterday), and they responded by saying that they did not know when they'd be receiving the boots, and that "it could be months."
Given the response from Guy directly about the boots arriving mid to late October, I'd probably chalk the Mr. Porter response up to an out-of-the-loop customer service rep, but thought I'd let y'all know, nonetheless...
Just got mine in. First pair of cordovan leather boots (or shoe). Gonna run them to the ground, maybe...
That's a boot that's makes me long for a time machine.
and a super fast internet connection with paypal ready to go and most importantly an insane amount of luck.
Every pic of the Brandy that's been put out has an obvious short cap... I don't see why this would be a surprise. Mine looks pretty spot on compared to the origin instagram pic.
After having worn these a few days, I'd stick with the short cap, at least for shell makeups. Even with the short cap, the cordovan roll intrudes into the cap and stops right at the stiffener (which is about a half inch below the end of the cap). My CXL boots didn't do this at all.
Out of the box though the unstructured long cap is hawt, it's really what attracted me to Viberg in the first place, but this is a concession that has to be made.

Ah yes. Beautiful shoe, would have preferred the 110 last though. I guess it's for the best as I would have broke the bank and probably bought all three! Got these bad boys instead...
(pic borrowed...won't receive mine until next week..can't wait!!!)
They really are quite nice though. Thanks for the pic!
Is that the Tate + Yoko chukka?
Yep! Been eyeing them for quite a while, finally pulled the trigger. Was actually surprised they still had some.
