Bund Strap?

Post by mattcantwin » Fri Mar 02, 2018 11:32 am

I got an email about a bund strap from Jack Foster:

Any opinions out there about their comfort?

That just seems like too much leather to be comfortable especially as warmer months approach. It also appears so large and overwhelming I personally just don’t get those. I’ve never seen a wristshot where these looked good.
Merde Alors! Et Vive Les Francais! :)

I've made a couple for myself, Brice and some other guys made fun of me. It really does look a bit much but fun nonetheless :)

Thanks for the input, Brice.


Those reasons are why I have yet to buy one.

I’ve never had a Bund and I’m not a big fan but I do appreciate the craftsmanship of a custom leather strap.

This one seems a little less bulky and less overwhelming...

I don’t mind them. Something different.
