    vs:

    In both cases I would go for the string style rather than the split ring. If black I can buy locally which is nice and it would be very slightly different (the string would likely be red):

    I really like the boldness of the red but I also like the black, it might be a better match to the X100S's very subtle red accent on the EVF lever.

    Ah, the problems we X owners have!

    Umm... yes, my thoughts as well. Right down to the rubber o-ring.

    I should have added that of course they look exactly like Gordy's and if you notice in my post the local one is Gordy's. I live in Seattle after all. However Gordy's straps do not come in that great red. I sent an email asking but do not have much hope.

    So back to the color...

    I have a Gordy's that is similar to the first one, but I also like the red leather.

    As I own a couple of black leather with red cord Gordy's you might be able to guess what my choice would be... Not too keen on the red personally and it'll only fade with usage, but of course it's your opinion that counts... :)

    I am going to see a Gordy's strap today. Irregardless of the color I also like how the Portuguese one is a full loop rather than chopped off where the string goes off, though I do like the waxed string better on the Gordy's strap. I could always end up with both...

    Irregardless is not a word

    That is incorrect. It is a neologism. Neologisms are words. Therefore, "irregardless" is a word.

    Next time though I will use a more proper word. By the way, Mr. or Miss Picky, proper written prose uses punctuation...
