    Got some new soft leathers in . Dress up time

    Got these 3 on the bay at 12 each. Feel gorgeous and really happy with the look too. Just shows you don't have to spend 50-200 for a leather strap.

    Pretty good all like new. Only minor gripe is the hole for the springbars could be tighter so the fit is slightly loose but at 12 a pop they are almost disposable ! Leather very soft and supple

    What length are these. Just looked at his site and he has five straps on offer none really appeals but he has pics of others that do but not for sale atm. Looks good value though.

    He always just makes a small stock. Pretty sure he would make what you want. They are normal size. If you have skinny wrist might have to add an extra home though. I did. He does 20 and 22mm widths I think

    Inspired by this thread, I bought a nice simple brown distressed leather strap from lawr389. Subtle stitching rather than contrasting. It's rather beautiful, and an utter bargain for 12.90 delivered. The only things I'd note are the springbar loops are quite big so it's hard to push the springbar around to lodge it nicely in the lug hole, and the keepers could be a tadge tighter.

    Nicer than a similar 50+ Colareb though (but I have another, black, Colareb which shows they can get it very right sometimes). Anyway, I'll be keeping my eye on his stock because I'm sure I'll buy more.

    Good stuff . Glad I shared. Yeah I agree re the springbar holes. I mentioned the same further up this thread. Can't knock it tho at the price. He makes them so maybe a message asking for one with tighter spring bars might yield fruit.
