    From my conversations with Guy and Morgan, the distinctions have been removed, since they were fairly arbitrary to begin with. I think that we can get any configuration, as long as it is reasonable.

    7 eyelets is fine and I especially like the idea of the cap toe.
    I am leaning more toward a 2030 last and hate the idea of 310 last. -simple google search- (pic of 310 last included in this post)
    Any more input on this Mocha Chromexcel service boot?

    perhaps we could try to finalize a few make-ups so that participants to the group-buys could express their allegiance :)

    Definitely Slab.

    Anyone with more knowledge about Viberg care to whip up some specifics for each? For example: Joona would you care to offer specs for a plain toe black service boot? The images you've supplied are absolutely the kind of boot I'd be after.

    Sure Arizor, I'll list the specs that I am aware for those 2 black boots. Also, leather options for a black service boot are at the moment (at least for single MTO) Black Oil Tan and Black Chromexcel.

    The Manufactum's 1940 Service Boots:
    [​IMG]

    - to my understanding, 2030 last
    - black shell cordovan upper (note that the togue is not made of cordovan)
    - Unlined shaft, front area lined with calfskin
    - partial box toe/partially structured toe, meaning that "It basically covers the edge of the front end" as Morgan put it.
    - dainite sole
    - natural single midsole
    - 5 eyelets, no top band

    Tate+Yoko 1950 Service Boot
    [​IMG]


    - 2030 last
    - black calf leather
    - to my understanding, no box toe/unconstructed toe
    - natural single midsole
    - 6 eyelets

    There is also single MTO black cordovan 1950 Service Boot you might be interested, but I don't know the specs for sure (you could ask about them directly from inquire at SuFu, if needed):

    This afternoon, I am going to set up a separate poll with some of the more popular suggestions you've all brought up here.

    If there is enough interest, I will talk to Guy and Brett, and we'll see how fast we can start this. Sound good?

    My suggestion would be something along the lines of: style: Service Boot leather: Vintage Tan Roughout toe cap: Brogue Captoe Baroque Toe Cap (maybe straight but probably not) last: 2030 Last (possibly 2040 if too many people found the 2030 too narrow) sole: Dainite Sole or leather sole Basically, something along the lines of the follow collaboration with Nigel Cabourn but without the pre-distressing: [​IMG] The other makeup I would love to see would be the same as the whiskey scotch grain cavalier and brown CXL (two colors in other words) service boot they have as a standard but on a sleeker last like the 2030. So, something like the following boot but with a sleeker toe box: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Awesome! Though it seems the others expressing interest in black boots may have a different aesthetic vision than I did :(

    I'm actually going to hold off on the poll until Monday or so, when I get a greenlight from Brett. Sorry for the wait guys, but I don't want to jump the gun on this.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
