    Hi OF

    I had a look through the search function with no luck.

    I have a few speedies and to mix things up I am looking for a denim strap for one of my speedies. Probably my 74ST. I was wondering if the good people of the interwebs knew or had experience of where you can find a good denim style strap?

    I like unique straps and the picture attached shows a strap made out of repurposed canvas from Japanese WWII issued backpacks. This backpacks had their name, rank and regiment written on the canvas itself because it lasted longer than paper or tags. Awesome!

    Thanks in advance.

    A denim strap on a Speedmaster would have a similar effect as Gabourey Sidibe stretching into a stars and stripes mini bikini.

    I had to google "Gabourey Sidibe" to understand that post. And then the mental image of Ms Sidibe in a stars-and-stripes bikini made me wish I hadn't ::facepalm1::
