    Anyone bought from Suras LeatherCraft?

    Has anybody ordered a strap from Suras LeatherCraft (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SaurasLeathercraft)? Look good in the pictures and the price is right, just wondering if anyone has feedback on the quality. Finding affordable short 22mm straps is not easy...

    Thanks!

    I have not bought from them, but I know others who have and they were very satisfied with the quality.

    Good luck.

    Your link wasn't working for me. If anyone else is having the same problem, perhaps this:

    One thing I'm looking at...he's using thick, probably full-grain leather. That's great for durability, but I wonder if it'll start out stiff. Second point: it doesn't look to be thinned at the lug ends. Combined with the basic thickness, this won't fit onto some watches. Plus, it may be tricky to take the strap back off, if you have to work the leather to access the shoulder on the spring bar. Thick leather means hard to move. Another argument, of course, for drilled lugs. :)

    Thanks for the feedback and thoughts on the straps! I think I'm going to move forward with an order - I'll let everyone know how it turns out!
