I'm thinking the Williams II looks best.

I prefer William II. I have both William I and William II, and like them both, but William II is my favorite of the two.

Is there any difference in regards to the last or leather being used, or is it strictly in design or better yet appearance?

Both models are equally beautiful.
JayJay, my compliments to you and if I may, I have two questions please: 1) Do you have either in buffalo? or scotchgrain 2) does the W2 come with a rubber sole or leather?

My William I is in buffalo leather with a leather double sole. I have one pair of William II in museum calf with a leather double sole and another pair in suede with a rubber sole. I love them all.

Wow, and me just looking for my first pair.

 

Currently considering the brown museum calf.

I always like to offer the John Lobb Wallace for consideration when the William is discussed...

Nice!!!

 

 

Is this a current model?

 

I don't remember seeing this as an option?

 

 

If you don't mind, what are the main differences between this and the William II?

The John Lobb Wallace is a discontinued model but should be available sans up-charge twice per year during the John Lobb MTO events. I am not sure what the specific differences are between the Wallace and the William but to my eye the Wallace seemes dressier than the William (at least the black version which I have in black museum in addition to the dark brown museum pictured).

It does look nice, and thanks for the information.

Can anyone tell me if the Williams and Williams II use the same Last and what Last or Lasts would that be?

 

 

By the way what Last does the Chapel use?

Never mind.

 

 

Now to decide if I want the Williams II in Black Calf and the double leather sole, or the Williams in Buffalo with the rubber sole????
