I contacted Mr. McKinnon last night about a possible bag and he provided a long, clear reply within 12 hours, with additional photos. Very nice.
excellent! What will you be ordering, if anything?

I was in the same boat as you until a random Google search, and I'm verrry happy now.

If I had to nitpick, i think the finishing on the Glaser is better, but this is half the price or even less (it looks like), and you're probably going for the more 'rustic' Filson look anyway...
No antiquing - just a very slight variation in leather color/depth, which is how it's finished at Wickett & Craig.
Glaser finishing is probably better... they hand dye and hand something else, etc. but it's about 3x the price.
