    I'm with you. Maybe he got a floor model? One boot that was out on display? Hopefully BCC makes good.

    This is insane, really. First we had some stitching issues here and there. Then came the uneven eyelets on the derbys, now two boots of a pair don't even match colorwise. WTF is going on with Viberg this past year??

    Increased demand/production without increased production capacity, presumably.

    Where do you guys get your replacement laces, specifically the leather rawhide laces?

    These dusty calf derbies should be mine soon since I passed on BCC boots.

    Love the derby's. I prefer it in the service boot though.

    Nothing too insane about it. Retailer is working to resolve. Handmade boots will always have an issue here or there, whether Alden, Viberg or White's.

    This is totally backwards. The value of handmade goods is in their attention to detail and craftsmanship. We don't pay more for a handmade product because it's *inferior* to a machine-made equivalent. We pay more because someone is holding the item at every step of the construction and personally asserting its made to certain standards.

    Sure certain idiosyncrasies may pop up here and there, but something as obvious and easy to catch as this discoloration is just blatantly unacceptable. Clearly either no one looked closely at this pair with anything resembling a critical eye, or they were greedy enough to let them pass through anyways.

    There are a lot of benefits to hand-craftsmanship, but consistency in production isn't one of them. Real talk, sorry.

    There's a huge difference between consistent production and not letting blatantly obvious mistakes leave the factory.

    The more important issue is if manufacturers and retailers take care of their customers...

    Superdenim has a 15% off code that works on their Vibergs.
