    Strap suggestions

    I would like to purchase a few new leather straps. Iwould like them to be soft and comfortable from the get go. Dont have the patience to " break in" a new strap. Any recommendationd as to what types of straps I should be looking at and what to avoid?

    Thanx

    I've found that the Kain Heritage croc straps were nice and pliable/soft. The only issue I had was the standard buckle on the 24mm was way to big for my taste. I needed to order a smaller sized one.

    Hirsch and Hadley Roma make very nice and pliable straps as well.

    Nomos Horween Cordovan straps. I use one for my vintage Constellation and they were soft and extremely comfortable, right out of the box.

    2nd vote for the Horween - they are a bit more but sure are nice and age well

    I always found clockwork synergy, and Christopher Ward straps soft and pliable from day one. Both vendors straps run long, at least for my 6.75 wrist.
