    My search failed so need help

    I will keep it short and sweet. I have been searching for a 20mm black leather strap with khaki or light/mid brown stitching for a watch of mine but have been unable to. I would very much appreciate if someone can direct me in the right direction.

    I just Googled your own quote "20mm black leather strap with khaki or light/medium brown stitching" and it seems to've come up with quite a few relevant results. Here's the "All" link:

    20mm black leather strap with khaki or light/mid brown stitching


    And also the "Images" link:

    Hey thanks for the reply. I did check those out before but none of them seems to really be black with brown stitching other then some custom straps. And I don't want a custom strap as that would take pretty long. Was looking for something right away.

    Hey Tony, thanks for the links. I was actually hoping for something readymade and not too expensive as I want to first try it on. Once I am sure it will look good then I plan to get a custom strap.

    It's not really a full custom job necessarily. Granted, it might take a day or two, but lots of these guys do this kind of made-to-order combo of leather and stitching all the time.

    Hmm, I guess I may want to shoot them an email. It's just that the price quoted on these pages are quite high, all are over a $100. And I don't want to spend that much while I am just trying to see if it would work. I was hoping for something ready made and less then $50 from any company such as hirsch,HR, rios etc. I already have a couple of people I use for custom straps that I trust and ultimately that's what I will end up with as I am rarely truly satisfied with the fit of ready made straps and hence all my current watches except 2 are on custom straps.

    Might check out Holben's, a vendor on eBay. He has a very large selection. Holben's Fine Watch Bands - European and American Watch Straps and Accessories

    Also might look at watchbandcenter.com as well for another suggestion. WATCH BAND SPECIALIST - Watch straps and more from Watchbandcenter.com

    I'm just thinking outside the box here, but if we're able to mod cases and movements then modding a strap should be easy as getting one with white stitching and finding the right color fine tip Sharpie and having at 'er.

    Believe it or not but I already checked them out and I couldn't find even one black with brown or khaki stitching. I am amazed how hard it is to find such a strap ready made.
