Drew has hi quality straps with an excellent communication. He has the SHELL CORDOVAN line which is highly recommended (I had a personal experience with them)

http://www.europelli.com/

3. DON

Don has good quality straps in very low prices.. Communication again is excellent and he has very interesting straps too... (I had a personal experience with them)

Great, me and a friend are hot on these group buys, so we are clubbing together to get a few from Europelli. I will probably get the basketball one and the distressed lambskin (bomber jacket) one. I will also go for a sharkskin from Don.

Will let you know how it goes.

@ veni12, nice post. You can add:

Watch Prince - decent straps and many other items (tools, winders, etc...).

HM-Watchband - No experience, but heard from people they have nice straps.

I noticed you left someone off the list, but I won't mention him either...... :whistling:

I have only bad things to say about this one, and BAD publicity is a worldwide accepted and sometimes working form of publicity. So I decided not to mention him anymore.

All that straps were bought and sold the last year..

Now I have other straps in my collection.

Trust me, all the straps I have got, cost the price of a genuine Panerai Base in total :)

If you see a strap you like from my photos don't hesitate to ask me about the model. Most of them are sold now but I will tell you from where I got it. :D

Could you comment on the smooth black leather strap with the blue stitching, your first photo below the Sub. Very cool strap but haven't come across this one in my searches.

Thanks.
