Made my purchase primarily based off the texture on the main photos and all other customers' photos - my other option was closer in color to a pair of brown suede shoes I'm trying to match it with but didn't have the texture I saw in these photos so my gf and I were super excited to come across this strap
As you may already know, suede and nubuck typically have a similar look due to having the same process of buffing/sanding.
I loved that this nubuck/pueblo strap for the light texture but didn't get any texture at all but:
Heads up, you might get a perfectly smooth one like the one I received. It's 100% smooth all the way through as if it's visually a completely different strap. I have a feeling that they accidentally skipped the last step.
As they described, this strap is also intended to pick up scratches/wear easily to age beautifully - however this means that from me trying it on, there are already immediate signs of wear (unlike the cordovan strap I also purchased) which disqualify it from being returned/exchanged.
Customer service is super quick to respond to my emails with photos but unfortunately does not provide prepaid labels and suggests return/reorder - but I purchased at the annual discount so I'd be losing money in doing that and potentially could get unlucky again if this is a batch thing.
Didn't expect this to be a lottery situation and super jealous of the other owners of this strap! Will have to look elsewhere to find the strap with the soft texture of nubuck that this description said it would have had
Beautiful leather with character! Gives my watch a totally different vibe! Love the ruggedness and vintage feel of it on my Tudor S&G Chrono.
It adds a vintage look to my gold case watch
