This time round, I had the opportunity to review a few vintage style leather straps from cheapestnatostraps.com, an online strap shop. These vintage style straps are handmade in Sweden and are characterized by their stitched lug end and buckle end, as well as a ‘V’ stitch at the tip of the strap.
Let’s take a look at the various models.
Doing another strap review for vario.sg and this time round I am looking at their latest Harris Tweed strap.
Tweed is a fabric that originated from Scotland more than one hundred and fifty years ago. It is made from wool and is handwoven by skilled weavers. Some Tweeds are named after the sheep that produced the wool or the region where they are produced while others are named by their design or by their specific brand names.
The Seiko Samurai is a popular 200m diver released by Seiko in the mid 2000s. Seiko released them in titanium and stainless steel with the titanium version as a JDM model and the stainless steel as a worldwide model. I’m not sure when was the ss version discontinued but I do know the Ti model was discontinued in 2008 and became very rare over the years.
This year, Seiko reissued the Samurai in stainless steel worldwide. Shown above is the PEPSI variant (SRPB53K) that I had the opportunity to handle.
