    The William is not my favorite. That bulge at the cap stitching is just . . . weird.

    Edit: Or, is it only the William II that has the bulge.

    I believe it's just the II that has that stitiching where they pinch the leather to make that bulge. Someone once referred to it as Frankenstein stitching [​IMG]

    What are the last numbers of the Derwent and the Naseby models? I do like their slightly larger buckle than my Williams II.

    8000 and 7000 respectively I think, but note that both models have been discontinued. The Derwent was regular line, the Naseby was Prestige line.

    I like the look of the buckles being closer together. The buckles themselves are also interesting in that they're more like belt buckles, with a leather loop to keep the strap in place. This looks more elegant to me than having just a metal loop, like on the William.
