I think that would cost a little more than my current watch if my exchange math is correct :). So will just have to oggle online for now.
What does one of those straps cost? I am a little scared to ask.
My third pair arrived and I had a chance to wear them a bit. Pictures can be found here:   http://meccariello-calzoleria.tumblr.com/post/90001746875/single-monkstrap-meccariello-line-a-customer     I really must say, WOW. The fitting on my first pair was pretty good, almost like a reasonably well fitting RTW last.   The second pair was much better and the best fitting pair that I owned, although you could feel them on your feet after a few hours.   The third pair...
Mind if I ask what the price is?
I actually found it reasonable to darken. Try Obenauf's HDLP.
 I do, although not in front of me. I recall the hazel being slightly darker, although the walnut got very close after a coat of neutral polish. More than close enough to wear together.
Color and amount of burnishing/ antiquing are up to you. My first pair, for instance, had much stronger antiquing compared to the tan ones above. I'd recommend you do one at a time (unless you're going with trial shoes) because even though the fit it is great (which I'd define as being as good as a well fitting Carmina last), it only become perfect on the second pair.
Yup. My last pair was Aurum lasted. These were a Japanese last he modified that he thought would fit my foot well (wide forefoot with a standard heel). You can see the difference between the two below.
Guess he is working on a Saturday. Picture of how the above single monks came out:    
Guess I'll share my latest project. Just a simple single monk for work in the summer.
