Rad @browniemcghee Thank you.  Really dig the casual look, esp compared to my kudu Vibergs that show more dress uppy.

Thanks @Seul Their comfort matches their looks, making me happier than a pig in shyt :)

Can anyone educate a complete noob like me as to the pros and cons of stitchdown vs. flat welt construction?  For my next pair of Vibergs I was looking at some service boots with a flat welt but a lot of people seem to favour stitchdown construction instead and I don't really understand why.  Is this purely for aesthetic reasons or is there something more substantial that I'm missing?

@Qinhan the difference in quality and weatherproofing is minimal.  It's really aesthetic.  Flat welt can be dressed up a little better than a stitch down boot.

Just further to this question, for those that are interested, this is what Brett Viberg had to say on the lack of difference in quality between goodyear and stitchdown methods:

Djeezus Seul, I wish you'd just say what's on your mind instead of mincing your words and beating around the bush

(They are shocking though).

Absolutely. Each to his own. Good idea to mention it here despite the reactions, mine included.

Going to have to agree, regardless of color I'm not a fan of the style/look of the boot.
