    Green two piece canvas (not shiny)

    I have been looking for a nice green canvas strap for quite some time. I tried a Hadley Roma but found it too shiny for what I was looking for, really looking for a faded/worn/olive drab color. What I can find is either quite expensive (tailored towards panerai watches which often results in thick straps) or no longer available (Eddy had a two piece that looks great, taikonaut as well).

    Haveston has a nice colour but it wears like a nato and I really want a two piece to keep it flat on the wrist.

    Miros time has new straps, hard to find decent pictures but they look quite shiny as well, though not sure.

    Watchgecko have a new green canvas but can only find stock pictures so far.

    Any suggestions I can try?

    Some pics of what I am looking for:


    From a Hamilton khaki field, hard to get seperate and expensive (almost EUR 100)

    Or

    Halios strap, not sold separately


    I think Eddie used to sell these

    Barton canvas from amazon? (Might be out of stock)

    loads of colours and comfy though pretty thin.

    Thanks guys. I like that Barton strap, do wish it had a slight taper. I see they do a sailcloth with taper but that one is shiny again.
    I checked out steveostraps as well. Impressive looking straps but not a big fan of the fraying (at least for the watch I am looking at now)

    20mm, tapering to 18mm. It's for my Halios seaforth bronze watch (blue dial). A few of them came with a second green canvas strap (second strap was an extra gift for delay of three weeks). I received a grey leather strap as a bonus. Now realize I should have added all this in the opening post, sorry for that.

    No worries, I have a completely unused 20mm green canvas that Eddie used to sell.

    I will pop it in the post if you want it but note it does not taper.

    Update: I ended up with this cordura from Morelatto. Quite happy so far!

    Watch Obsession do a matt green parallel 20mm. I have the black one. Very happy with it.

    And now, for something completely the same.

    Also available on eBay for about 12. I nearly bought them from WO until I found the eBay seller.

    Looks great. Pity the postage is so high ( have now found its free postage on amazon :) )
