Saddle tan is such an evocative colour. Combined with natural coloured harness stitching it is reminiscent of the heyday of fine British leatherwork. Just think Livingstone and his expeditions up the Nile and military campaigns around the world. Steampunk overtones and Victorian flair. Oh yes!
This 1.25" wide plain adjustable leather mandolin strap (adjusts from 40" to 46" long) is made from supple 2.5mm (approx) thick leather hand dyed in saddle tan. It has a 3 button slots at the tail end, and a single neat button slot at the head. It is fitted with a very discreet solid brass buckle at the back (right out of the way so it won't scratch your instrument) and has been topstitched (stitched around the edge) in natural coloured heavy harness thread to minimise stretching. Nice!
When you order be aware that mandolin buttons do vary. Most are roughly the same size as guitar buttons but if you have bigguns or littluns then tell me and i'll try to make sure the strap fits properly.
