When it comes to accessorizing your wardrobe, the name of the game is variety. Hodinkee recently released their Bedford Strap Collection, which meets that need nicely.
The Bedford Strap Collection consists of 10 leather watch straps made of new nubuck leather. Nubuck leather is made by sanding or buffing the grain side—or the outside—of the leather, which creates a slight nap that has a velvet-like surface, similar to suede. The upside to nubuck is that, unlike suede, it is highly resistant to wear, making it a longer lasting leather.
For comfort, Hodinkee’s Bedford straps feature a calfskin lining. Off-white stitching accents the look of the straps, but also adds a degree of increased durability. The straps measure 2mm thick and come in 18, 19, 20, and 22mm lug widths, so they’ll fit most watches. You can select from their 10 available colours to match any event or outfit.
The straps are available exclusively through Hodinkee and retail for USD$165 each.
