    I've been in the market for a suede strap for winter. Looking forward to picking up one of their straps.

    I just ordered the Brooklyn light brown strap with light blue stitching for my Eterna's, I'll post some pics once it arrives.

    You won't be disappointed. I own three straps from Bas and Lokes, and I would say all three are in the best 5-6 straps I own. If you can afford their price I would say they are the best "production" strap maker out there.

    I'd stay away from them. I bought a strap for my Speedmaster but my wrist measurement fell right in-between two sizings they offer. I chose the longer and am greatly disappointed. The strap end comes up almost completely around to the dial.

    They have a no return policy. I knew it but made a mistake. I really can not think of any quality retailer online or store based that refuses to take any returns for any reason.

    It is not worth the risk to deal with an outfit with this kind of customer service.

    Yeah that would all be fine except one thing.....

    You can email them before you order asking for a custom length not listed on their site, which they will do for you at no additional charge. I know, cause I do it every time I order from them.

    I have one of their straps where I said "Give me the leather from this strap, but the stitch color from that strap, of and use the stitching style from over there. Custom length too obviously... and uh can you make it with no padding even though the strap has it?"

    Additional cost to me? 0 dollars. Try that with any other production strap maker on the internet, you will either get a straight up "no, I won't do that", or a "sure for 20+ extra dollars!"
