Bargain Bin: Epsom Straps

Size Guide

These straps were samples that didn't make the cut due to poorer quality than what we accept. The quality of the leather is the same as normal Epsom straps, construction is also equally robust. The problems are all cosmetic, and some might not even have a problem (we're just clearing stock). If you are looking to try out the Epsom straps or explore different colours, these straps are perfect for that!

Some problems include:

  1. Indentations on the leather. Caused when there is pressure applied on a single spot on the leather.
  2. Scratches on the leather. Caused by the sharp end of threads scratching against the leather surface during transportation and storage.
  3. Loose grain. Where the leather used for the strap is less than ideal and results in some wrinkling.

The straps are split into 3 categories based on their quality.

  • Cat A (30% off): Small flaws, not very noticeable when the strap is worn.
  • Cat B (45% off): A few more issues. More noticeable but not jarring.
  • Cat C (60% off): Very noticeable cosmetic issues.

Note: discount codes cannot be used on these straps, unless it is a store-wide discount.

Bargain Bin Purchares

I bought 2 straps from the Bargain bin, an orange slim and a gray signature both epsom. The colours look great and the overall finishing is of a high standard, the only issue I had with the straps are the tongue on the buckles have a bit of sideways movement on them so it can sometimes be difficult to close the strap. Other than that it was great value for the straps as they were just stock clearance items.

Great value!

Strap was great. The issues that consigned it to the bargain bin are barely noticeable. Says a lot about the quality control standards 👍🏿

Excellent leather strap! Let down slightly by the buckle.

The leather itself is of very high quality and is very comfortable. I am sure it will last well and I'm very happy with that aspect of the strap.
The buckle sadly seems much cheaper (especially compared to other straps at this price point) and prevents my from giving the strap 5 stars.
Overall I am happy with the strap and will likely buy more.

28 Nov 19: We hear you! Thanks to feedback like yours, we have now released new buckles (with our logos engraved, no less!) These will ship with all newly made straps. Thank you and we hope you enjoy your straps!

Wonderful

Strap is good quality, much softer and more comfortable to wear than I expected. Nth to complain besides it being pricy, but I guess we pay for what we get. Nevertheless, looking forward for more bargain sale.
