    Cool Custom Straps by Patrick / Spinach Straps (Review)

    After freezing my ..ts off for several decades, I decided to seek out warmer climes. Nowadays, the thought of wearing a coat is far from my mind and most days are spent seeking out some shade and a cold beverage. With that comes a change in mindset as well as a change in wardrobe. Obviously, a proper watch strap is needed. That is when I came across some of the incredible art work by "Spi" at Spinach Straps. As I dunno what "Spi" stands for, Patrick just seems easier to say...

    I commissioned a 22mm custom strap to wear with a dive watch while getting a surface interval and some chilled refreshment 'top side'. He came through with a piece of artwork that fits my AO superbly. More pictures will follow, but wanted start here. Matched it with my Armida Bronze and a "Torpedo" buckle from Black Forest Atelier.

    I like it..... imho for me I would want a 22/20 configuration. The 22/20 has a certain flow from the narrower buckle to the wider part at the watch.
    Also clarify what ..ts are.....
    Thanks

    Perfect choice for that watch. Really brings out the patina of the case. Nice.
