    Replacing strap on my Flieger

    Hi all, the strap on my Flieger is getting a little bit thin and since I got a Maddog strap on my Helberg im in for a thicker leather strap. There is one but; I like the classic flieger look and I want to keep the buckle original.....

    Can someone recommend a strap maker (no generic brands) which makes thick strap with a classic/vintage feel? Thanks!

    Saw someone post a pic of a Jurgens strap, which looked great! Made in Germany too!

    Maybe something like this? 4mm thick. 75 year old German ammunition pouch with Green stitching. Not going to get more vintage than that.
    The buckle was sent too the maker to match the strap fit and hole sizes perfectly.

    I have one of Myron's Arts and Crafts straps for my Fleiger. His straps are shell cordovan and made by him personally.
    Totally worth it and will last a very long time.

    This is the type of strap that can make a watch. Well done!

    Thanks- I have a few Vintager straps and Micha's work is by far my favourite straps on the Pannie and Stowa. If/when a Stowa 1938 comes my way it will certainly get one as well.

    Joe at SNPR straps is another one to consider. He is a member here as well and does great work.
