    ~ALPHA BRAVO~ Nato Straps in Suede for sale:

    These are High Quality hand made in the USA Leather Nato straps in Suede Tobacco Brown . I have three sizes now, 18mm, 20,mm 22mm, & 24mm. I have been wearing mine for over a year and it has held up and aged beautifully. The nice thing about suede leather natos over nylon is they will not slide around your arm like so many of my natos do. I looked around for others selling suede natos and nothing came up in this price range so I am attempting to fill a void in the strap world.

    Yes! These look fantastic! Ive been looking for a suede nato but, like you said, its not easy to find in this price range. Im certainly going to be purchasing one of these assuming you'll ship to Toronto. Would love to see a Navy suede or even a chocolate brown, but the tobacco looks brilliant.

    Good stuff!

    I can. There will be a little bit of a lead time because I have to order more hardware. If you send payment I will order more and get the strap to you asap.

    Just got my tobacco strap in the mail!!! It's amazing. much thicker than that p.o.s. leather strap i bought on ebay for like $14 or something. Not too thick that it looks silly like some of those (otherwise gorgeous) cordovan nato's ive seen.

    Can't compare to that australian co that sells suede nato's for ~$80 I've seen online.

    The colour is very close to the Snuff Suede Alden produces. at least in my experience. I wouldnt expect a "match" if you own snuff's, but its much closer to that rich caramely colour than a light sand suede. just gorgeous.

    The hardware is a nice chrome. I like the roller buckle. it's a nice, unique touch. I wish that strap "holders" were rounded rather than flat, but thats a miner complaint.

    For 29.95 I feel like I more than got my money's worth. And I'm glad I supported the OP rather than J.Crew whom I almost purchased from.

    One other small compalint is this is measuring a little narrower than 20mm for me. Not quite 18mm (i compared it to one of my canvas 18mm natos and a 20mm nato). It closer to 19mm. Its a small difference but it is noticeable. I'll post a pic when I can.

    Anyway, for those thinking of pulling the trigger, go for it. Shipping to Toronto took about a week. Not bad at all.

    I listened to this small complaint and the hardware is all round now as compared to the flat ones from the first batch.

    Wow, I'm very impressed. Would love to try out the new one but I can't really justify buying another one while mine is still totally functional. wish I could though. Looks fantastic.

    Nice, I will be ordering shortly. I like the nappy look of the suede.

    I'm guessing the pictures are of the Tobacco color, do you have pictures of the brown as well?
