    Why are Brooks Champions Chafed?

    Sorry for the petty question but I can't help but wonder. It looks like about a 1/32" gouge. On the two standards I've owned, I never thought, "Jees, this thing really needs to have hunks of leather cut away from the sides."
    If I cannot be perfectly orthodox, let me at least be mundane.

    LOL.

    I don't like the looks of it either, but it's offset by the nicer-looking copper rivets, so pick your poison. I wish they'd offer the higher end models with a choice about the weird little line, and I especially wish they would offer all saddle types in all the colors they offer.
