  Hi strap lovers.  I’m happy to share with you a strap I’ve just completed for a really good customer who wanted something very special.  This strap features our ‘Verona Gold’ Alligator from our Veneto Alligator Collection.  The Veneto Collection’ Alligators consists of Alligator hide tanned by our tannery suppliers based in Northern Italy, where some of the finest leather tanning has been practiced for centuries.  Verona Gold is a beautifully tanned hide that has been heavily waxed to provide a bit of a pull-up effect.

Our customer ordered his strap with purple stitching and custom dyed Eel skin lining.  Of course I was happy to comply, but I must admit that I had my doubts about the combination.  Experience has taught me however, that my initial reaction are often wrong (based upon my too conservative notions of color combinations), and that my customer’s more adventuresome designs prove to be the most winning once the straps are built.  The strap featured here is no exception.  This strap build with padding at the lugs and our exclusive ‘Thick Curved Lug System’ (TCLS) to provide an integrated strap fit look great here modeled on this PAM351.
