  5. Psst, the football leather NATOs are now up on our site. These are going to go quickly! http://stra.ps/whatsnew

     
  6. Next week we will be releasing hand-made NATO straps using Horween football leather, the very same leather exclusively used by the NFL for their authentic game-use footballs. Every football fan is going to need one of these.

     
  7. Watch and tech enthusiasts alike have been enthralled, for better or worse, with the Apple Watch since it’s announcement on Tuesday. Today, WIRED Magazine caught up with C&B owner Thomas to get his thoughts on the Apple Watch and the accessory opportunities for it. You can read the article here.

  11. It has been a dream and a goal since opening Crown & Buckle in 2011 to manufacture straps ourselves in-house in the United States. In December 2013, we started this project to turn that dream into a reality. 

    It was a long process with plenty of bumps along the way, but we are so proud to finally be releasing the first [small] batch of products that we made ourselves here in our South Florida facility. We hope you’ll enjoy these products, and the many more to come. 

    Sincerely, Thomas
