    It's not too hard for me to do. I can afford it, I like his work and I have watches that are suited to his straps.

      Tandy Leather can supply everything you could ever want to make a watch band, or anything else made of leather. They have stores all over the U.S., but also have mail order. You may want to check out their website.

      It seems a lot of chaps have struck out on the hand-made strap path--it might be a really fun hobby.
      I've seen some made from baseball gloves and they look very cool.
      That would be an amazing complement to one of RGM's 801s with the baseball enamel dial.

      I see two problems with making my own straps.

      1). I need another hobby like I need a hole in the head.
      2). I am way too critical of my own work to ever be satisfied.

        Yes! Do it! It's a great '70s strap for a vintage inspired chrono.

        I love the distressed strap too. It's really wonderful in real life.

        Today it is the black strap with slate stitching though.

          I can tick two of those boxes and just wish that I had something that would suit one of his straps.
          Edit: Maybe a black strap with red stitching for my Diastar Captain Cook..?

            No. 1 I get. No. 2... those that have known you for awhile on this forum have praised your "work" because it is exceptional. So never be too critical of your talents and art Henry.

              I've got a pair of straps from him as well. They look terrific, great attention to detail, and super comfortable. Plus he's a terrific fellow.

                Yes, to all four of those points.
