New to watches: Looking to buy my first custom strap(s). Any good "vented" leathers for $20-30?


I am new to watches and have found, like many others, that in the affordable range, that many manufacturers "cheap out" on the straps.
Secondly, I am interested in something that is leather but breathes. Maybe this can be accomplished by drilling holes or buying one with holes already installed?
Are there good straps that would fit, specifically, the oddly sized Orient Bambino lug width? Also, since I am new, I don't want to waste money on something that would be the "Daniel Wellington equivalent" of watch straps.

Here is an example, but this is a cheap strap from Amazon.

Finally, if you would like to suggest colors for a particular watch, I am adding a new strap to a modded Seiko SNK805 (green dial) with a domed sapphire and polishing the case to be similar to the Alpinist. I would like a luxurious outdoor look and with a color that looks good with forest green. I am thinking a dark/chocolate brown.
Thank you
