Custom Buckle Front

Posted on January 20, 2019 by Ray Holmes | 0 Comments

HOLMES custom buckle-front strap for Jared Artaud of the band The Vacant Lots. 

Custom straps are a big part of what I do---in this case, riffing on older existing strap, finding the right buckle, and building the strap around it.

Between a busy holiday season and dodging California wildfires, I'm a little late with the wishes, but here's hoping 2018 is a good one for everyone. Thanks for the continued support!

Pleasant surprise, cracking open my copy of The National's new record, Sleep Well Beast, to find a HOLMES S2 nylon strap photo'd on Scott Devendorf's bass. Incidental, but a fold-out poster is forever.

This will be my favorite thing for a while.

Cranking it up this early summer, and another new strap design is in the books and available. Flat nylon, all black, all rivet construction, with a couple of very nice details. Pretty sweet, if I do say so myself.
