    Buy both and can interchange between them based on the fashion requirement of the moment

    I prefer Barton, the worksmanship is good - go Alan photo and try it for yourself.

    The Tap and Dye looks cheap, I would rather get a Gordy's if I can't get a Barton.

    T&D - Unusually bad design.
    Metal buckle will scratch and mark your camera body/lens barrel.
    Does not have refined finish along entire edge of leather strap.

    Between the two, Barton is much better.

    This design is also better. (sorry linked image is too big)

    I think Barton is way better in design n quality.
