    Suggestions on some reasonably priced custom/handmade straps

    I'm not looking for overly fancy, just something that isn't your typical $20 ebay strap. My budget is under $60 so I'm not sure what my options would be. Feel free to suggest ebay sellers, custom leather crafters, etc.

    Something you don't see every day, a button stud strap. Made to your length. Various Horween options.

    I have one; very comfortable. Did have a bit of a wait, tho.

    You don't say in what part of the world you live. I guess you are in the USA as you're asking in $. However, here is my recommendation from the UK 'steveostraps.com'

    Look on etsy.com and search under "Handmade watch strap" or similar terms as another suggestion.

    Re: Suggestions on some reasonably priced custom/handmade straps

    I recently used a guy with the Handle Aprell on this site (he has a thread) and the quality and buying experience was top notch. He had several materials to choose from and does great work. I beleive he is out of Russia.i ordered 1 from him and immediately ordered another two. Likely going to put in another order in the next few days. I think he is the best you can do in your price range (from the people I have used).

    I also had had a good experience with a guy called Radu from Handmade watch straps. I found him on etsy. I think he only does Vegi-tan. I have used a lot of others too at your price range and frankly while some of these others do great work too they have been a pain to deal with.

    Try clover straps. Patrik does great work, will custom make the strap to your specifications, and is very reasonably priced. I've had 2 made by him, they tend to be around $50.

    Here are the two he's made for me:

    How much was your strap from Aprell? I saw his thread a while and I liked what I saw, but it looked way out of my budget.

    BeauBands has done a few for me and his prices are very reasonable.
    I'm very happy with how they have turned out.
    He's very accommodating and easy to work with.

    This is my favourite that he did for my grail.

    Zed073, that strap is beautiful! Great bargain for the price.

    Verdict, Combat Straps is awesome if you're willing to stretch your budget. I believe it's worth it. The company is in CONUS and my wait time was relatively quick. This is what was made for me:
