    I agree. I also REALLY like the blind eyelets.

    I agree. For me, if I just wanted another plain toe brown CXL with no eyelets I would save the money and just buy the standard Alden PTB or Rapid City from AE. There needs to be something unique to incentive me. I look to Viberg for a more customized makeup while retaining an extremely high level of build quality and materials.

    I am definitely in favor of: brass eyelets, natural double leather sole, and ebony essex.
    As its been stated, it would be nice to see more pics of the ebony essex. I was unable
    to find any online other than what was already posted.

    I could potentially roll with the brown CXL but might need to hold until the next Derby run.
    I'll probably up my Viberg collection to about 3 pairs tops for the foreseeable
    future. Would rather not double up on the same leather I have in service boots.

    Will the derby with leather sole looks too similar to Alden too?

    Looks great! To clarify, will the double leather sole have a dovetail heel?

    I vote brown CXL.

    yes, a dovetail heel. I'm not sure about the leather yet. Because the construction of the dirties requires more folding of the leather not all leathers can be used. I know that the CXL is a possibility, but I realize that I haven't asked about the ebony Essex yet specifically.

    Given my recent purchases and hopefully the kudu boot I am likely out. Ebony Essex would get my vote though
