I'm looking for a plain black leather strap of decent quality to go on my new Farer Ponting. I'd just order their's, but they're sold out. Any suggestions for something very similar?

To be more specific, I'm looking for full stitch, with black stitching. I'll check Colareb out. I'm a bit of a strap addict, but have never owned that particular brand. Decent quality?

Colareb has many options, I bought the Siena above.

Atdegs,

Would Horween-Cordovan work? 2.5 to 3mm thick. Made in Germany with fast shipping.

I have a black (first quality) 20mm wide (shown here). Around 72 usd.
I also, have a brown (2nd quality) 20mm wide. Around 42 usd.

Can't really tell any difference between the two straps in quality.

They measure 118/75mm.

Trusted ebay seller. I noticed a few of these on the forum. They get good reviews and the out of the package inspection sure looks good.

So, far I haven't mounted mine because there's only six holes on the tail, so I may need to add a hole, or two, toward the lugs to accommodate my small wrist (not sure yet though). That's why I'm including photos with detailed measurements referencing not only length, but, where the holes start and terminate.

If Farer doesn’t get theirs in stock soon I think this is the front runner. I’d really like a signed buckle though.

The James is actually very nice, bought one as a gift, it looks great in person and the rubber inside is very comfortable.

Farer has a cheaper non-Barenia strap that I’m going to try. I’ll report back how it is. If it’s too cheap feeling I’ll swap the buckle, probably to a Hirsch.
