Footycrazy fantastico!!!

Post by tikkathree »

I asked Graham to imagine a strap for me for my C60 COSC and the idea in my mind was to acknowledge the CW black & red soft Italian leather strap I enjoyed on a C60 mkii COSC a year or so back.
I wasn't looking for a mirror image of that strap and I wanted red detailing to pick up from the red second hand.
I had a choice of 3mm or 5mm leather and I went with the latter.
To say that I'm delighted would be an understatement and I'm now looking where else I might need new leather.ImageImageImageImage

Rather than create another thread, I'm going to jump in on this one as the title says it all :thumbup:
I also asked Graham for a specific strap.
He has been most accommodating with what I wanted and I'm also very, very pleased with it :D
Note: I reversed the keeper.

For reference, the strap is one of these (photo taken from @Footycrazy's for sale topic).

I have a problem. My Speedy on the Footy strap has become surgically attached to my wrist and I can't remove it. I might have to seek legal advice. :lol: :wink:

And this just in. All I set out was the lug width, the softer 3mm thickness and a chalky blue stitching and blue backing. The interpretation of that was all down to Graham.
I'm going to look at this all day now....ImageImageImageImageImageImage
