    If anyone's looking for a Palmer Trading Company Bad Seed black waxed flesh in 10.5, let me know.

    Respect.

    I wasn't disavowing the 2045 as not being classic.

    Just a comparison to the 110.

    Quick poll guys. Service boots on the 2030 with cap toe. In #8 CXL or Brown CXL? Why?

    TIA

    Both are fine leathers. I'd say #8 CXL is more of an oxblood that "pops" a little more with denim and beige/green chinos. #8 CXL is also a little more reddish than #8 shell cordovan, which starts out quite dark, almost black, and only lightens over time.

    Just picked up some natty waxed flesh service boots (my first pair of Vibergs, too!). Should I put any conditioner/preservative on 'em before wearing?

    Nice.

    Some re-wax after a year or so after getting beat up but for my brown waxed I did nothing and will continue to do nothing and let them age and get beat up.

    I've got a pair of natty and black WF on the way from our recent GMTO and will do the same with them.

    Here's how mine are looking after 6+ months.

    Those waxed flesh are looking great. May I ask in what conditions you normally wear them? Mine see mostly office carpet on rainy days, so not as much patina.

    Thanks. And sure.

    All conditions. Haven't been in rain with them yet but wouldn't care.

    Lots of playing horseshoes. Driving around getting nicked in the car. "Hiking" around in dirt and taller grass. Trekking around many Renaissance Festivals.

    Just banging into things with no care. And wear them a lot so they break in to your feet.

    It's nice wearing boots where you just don't care or think about it.



    Already posted this one playing horseshoes:

    Gotta share my lost&found natural cxl service boots. They are my most worn boots this past fall and winter. The leather is so thick beat my Alden indys. The patina is great, just wipe and brush.

    This might be a stupid question, but where do you guys typically purchase your Vibergs from? I've been looking to purchase my first pair, but can't find any shops that have the "staples" in stock

    Really wish I had been able to pick up a pair of the unglazed natural shell Vibergs! Those looked awesome. [​IMG]

    Generally I hate perforated leather -- never seen a pair I liked until now. Those are just a sample so it's not like I can jump on those but I'd be pretty tempted if it were an opinion.

    Out of curiosity, what would you guys wear the slippers with? How much is a reasonable price?

    ^ Denim and shorts. They will not be reasonably priced.
