    Toshi straps and MO

    Just received a brushed MO, and looking to add a thicker strap to it. Toshi straps seem to get great reviews here, and having looked at his website, I'm considering a couple. The difficulty is trying to guess what would be best through a few pictures, or no pictures. I am considering the havana or the tobacco, with dark brown, royal blue, or natural stiching. Can any toshi/MO owners weigh in with their experiences/thoughts/pictures? Also, what would be the proper length for a 7' wrist?

    Thanks.

    Can't help you on length but talk to Rich, he'll be able to advise.
    Look at the existing strap, measure it, do you want the Toshi to be longer or shorter...
    Because of the thickness of the strap, a longer strap wears shorter - if that makes any sense...

    Re: Toshi straps and MO

    I have a havanah with drab green which looks great on the MO. The royal blue would also look great. IMO the thickness of Rich's straps work very well with the MO. Have another on the way for my FO and a couple more on my "wish list".

    On the issue of length, my first strap from him was ordered as per his own instructions. The second I ordered is the next size down from that, cause I feel there's just a bit too much tail and I like to have the buckle in the middle of the holes. PS, he's a great guy to deal with.

    Agreed, he is a great guy and very easy/pleasant to deal with over email. I have a Havana w/Royal Blue stitching on the way and am really looking forward to it.
