    Really enjoyed making this one... your thoughts ?

    Well, I've been sporting my 44mm Marina on the mizuno band I made, some of you have seen it. While I love the band, I had an occasion where I wanted to wear the watch, but the band was a bit to informal. So, I got to work.. here are the results!

    6mm thick, tapered to ~3 at the tail, only one hole, and stitched my "signature" at the lugs.

    What do you think?

    Thanks for looking! :thanks

    strap innovation is getting better Matt!!

    On a side note, i would advice you to concentrate on stitched throughout strap as this will make you a better strap maker. just my opinion.

    best,

    Thanks Paul! What do you mean by stitched throughout? I wanted the band to look simple, and that's why I left out the stitching down the sides. All of my most recent projects have included the stitching, just wanted this one to be a bit more formal.

    Here's one with stitching:
