Does this drop have stitching or no stitching? I'm confused because I prefer the one with no stitching
Yes this drop has one minimal reinforcement line of hand stitching at the top of each strap as well as the buckle end, for a total of 3 lines of stitching on the watch strap itself and 1 small tack stitch on the underside of the keeper.
How thick are these bands? DA-LUCA

Y’all are great and i look forward to buying from you again soon
"We are lucky to get some colors and maybe only receive 2-4x hides. The hides are extremely small (1'x2.5' approx) and each hide varies with it's thickness from the right side to the left. We apologize about the thickness, but in reality we are lucky to even be offering some of the colors that we do in this many sizes/options."

or you could, i don't know, manufacturer fewer pieces at a higher level of quality....

crazy idea, i know.
I'm interested in a Navy shell one-piece NATO style offering.
The 1 piece version may be available at a later date as a different drop offering.
Whats model name or Is this strap MD exclusive?

I understand its the "shell Cordovan Watch Strap" but is it on the da luca website?
Yes, http://www.dalucastraps.com/shell-cordovan-watch-strap/.
Little bit concerning that the stitching isn't even right in the main image for the drop! Doesn't really fill you with confidence for the final product.
Anyone care to comment on the straps in the current drop? I know the manufacturer has posted here promising a better product, but bad stitching would drive my OCD off the charts. I actually committed, then dropped out. On the fence with this.
If you receive the strap and it’s not what you expected me will gladly do anything in our power to help make it right. With that said, we have not had any direct issues with the new style for MD. We hope this helps and gives you the peace of mind to rejoin the drop.
I just received my strap (Navy, 115/75, 20mm). It's ok...stitching isn't quite straight, but not horrible. Length is actually a little longer than listed (I ordered the smallest size and I'm on the very last hole, my wrist is 6.5"), and the rubber cement on the underside is already peeling. Had I paid what they're asking on their site ($180), I would return it immediately. But for $65, it's ok I guess...I know shell cordovan isn't cheap, so I have to take that into consideration. I've made a few leather straps myself, and to be perfectly honest, even with my meager leathercrafting skills, I could have done a comparable job. Overall I'm kind of disappointed and probably won't buy another Da Luca product, but not so much so that it's worth going through the return/refund process.
We have moved away from full stitching straps on MD as it was not working for us or for our customers. The new style seems to have little to no issues and we greatly welcome you to try one of them or send this one back to us and we can gladly re-make/exchange this for a different strap. As always our email address is Info@DaLucaStraps.com. We look forward to speaking soon.
DA-LUCA, is this what you call a premium product to send half over the globe?

Sorry, but this is more than disappointing. I spent more than $120 (including Tax) and drove 2 hours to the customs now to own a watch strap looking like the sewer was drunk and the quality check on vacation.

It's not your consumers' problems that you cannot keep up with the orders. Many companies would love to have an opportunity like this one yet you have proven time and time again that your products do not justify the price. I have bought from you once and I cannot recommend your products to my friends until you have fixed your quality issues or lower the price, it's that simple.
Not being able to get the stitch line at a straight line 90 degrees to the edge of the strap is so basic that I don't think that the problem is being in a rush because of so many orders. I think it's more that the worker is not cut out for this kind of job. You cannot train someone to be a violinist who is naturally tone deaf.

Also, the product photos for Da Luca leather straps consistently show visible flaws. Why were these photos chosen? Are they the best of all the samples produced? That would indicate that at best that's what would be delivered; more probably what would be delivered would be worse.
