Alfredo's Swiss Ammo for Autozilla: Emergency N Cream Addition

(click on any photo to enlarge)

Hi strap lovers. Here is a strap that I just completed this week for my good customer, Alfredo from the UK. He's got an Citizen Autozilla and had seen (and liked) the Swiss Ammo strap I had done for Grégoire form France, that I had featured here earlier in the month. Alfredo wanted one in the same style, but with Orange and Cream stiting to match the hands and Dial markers of his Autozilla. Well, I have to admit that I had my doubts about this combination of colors and I wasn't so sure that double stitching a Swiss Ammo strap wouldn't be over doing it a bit. But, Anyone who's been reading my blog for a while, knows that I've been surprised on several occasions by how wrong my initial reactions can be. And, I'm happy to say in this instance I was really, really wrong. In fact I may have been venturing into a completely new spectrum of wrongness, because this strap is totally HOT! Built incorporating the newly arrived custom logo "D9" Vintage style flat, sewn-in buckle, the more I look at it the more I like it. I stitched the Orange line first, which looked pretty good. But, when I began to stitch the second line in cream white, it was like a revelation. This has happened twice recently with 2 different double stitched straps (more on the other instance will be presented soon), which I guess I've personally never been to keen on. My take away: First, I've completely changed my mind about double stitching on straps, and now think that if done well, they can look really awesome. And, second (and this one is NOT new - more like a reaffirmation) I should trust my customer's design instinct at least as much as my own and sometime more so. Alfredo has clearly got a great eye for design and in a few days, he'll be sporting the proof of that on his wrist for the world to appreciate. Thanks Alfredo for helping to opening my eyes to the great potential of double stitching!
