I received the Pad & Quill leather strap yesterday. While it's definitely a premium leather I'm somewhat disappointed with it. My two main grips are it's incredibly stiff. I know leather will soften up, but even after a day of bending it back and forth to loose it, it needs to be about a quarter as still as it is to be comfortable (to me). The strap is also wider than the metal buckle. I can't image why it's like this. Combined with the stiffness it makes it a five minute job to get it on, very frustrating. Finally the whole thing seems a bit oversized for the 38mm watch. Below are some posts with picture comparisons with the new Apple classic buckle strap.
