Hi, with the current restrictions on imports in my country its very complicated to buy straps online and its not worth the trouble, which means i cant buy any known straps or ask about x strap quality. So i will try some local sources to see what i can find, straps here arent exactly cheap so i wanted to ask for some pointers on what would you look for when buying leather straps.
Are there any things to look for by someone who is not exactly versed on the subject so i wont buy a strap that will dissapoint me after a short while? or is it more a try and see thing which i would prefer not mainly because of the money involved as i said.
We have quality leathers here but we also have a lot of people wanting to make easy money selling crap. I tried to look but couldnt find any references locally so i will be buying based on my judgement alone.
Are there any type of leathers more recommended than others? thickness, flexibility, more things?
Currently im looking for brown and black leather straps, maybe a croc print, nothing exotic.
