New batch of Pam style

I just finished a new batch of Pam style straps all at 24mms width and of various lengths. It's been hard to squeeze in production straps for my sales threads since I've been so busy with custom orders (thanks for the great orders!). These are real beauties all and all mounted up with my great custom "D9" buckles. They're priced at $130 usd each plus shipping. If you see one you'd like, e-mail me right away because I think they'll be going fast!! Take a look at the slide show below. Also, if you'd like any of them mounted to a different finished buckle, let me know and I'll be happy to switch them out for you. Or it you'd like me to ship it with an extra buckle, I can do that for an extra $10 (which if a huge discount off the regular $17). Cheers!

Hi all,
I'm just really excited about how this one turned out for Simon one of the founders of BR-avo.com the best unofficial Bell&Ross dedicated form around (if you're a Bell&Ross fan like me, you should check out BR-avo.com). I had done a strap for his military in vintage tan and Olive that he like a lot, but while he was watching the slide show of the build for that strap, he fell in love with the color of the natural leather and wanted to make him one. After I warned he that the strap will get darker with age and turn to a nice vintage tan in time, he was ever more convinced that he wanted one and gave me the go ahead.

Of course untreated leather would just be a dirt and stain magnet, so I put a couple layers of satin sheen clear top coat and a heavy coat of water proofing in order to try to avoid water spots.

He asked for the lightest natural vegetable tanned leather and black linen stitching - a bold combo as you can see (Simon's got a great sense of style). The leather I use was the highest quality vegetable tanned leather made. Its cream white, has no flaws or scarring and is soft as my baby daughter's bottom (sorry Amelie). My supplier keeps these hides wrapped in heavy paper to keep them white, as light exposure will begin the natural darkening process.

Here's the build and final strap:
