    I have a strap that I like but is too thin.....So...

    I have this ostrich leather strap that I like but is too thin, I was thinking about gluing leather to it to make it more thick...Is it a good idea?

    No, not a good idea. Sorry, don't want to discourage, but you are much more likely to just end up ruining a strap you like. Put it on a dressier watch and it won't be too thin.

    Yeah what CAD said!!!! Thinner watches look great for dress up and even casual, embrace it! Start a new trend away from those huge watches people are wearing! (I also wear smaller watches).
