Today, we’re excited to announce the latest HODINKEE strap collection: the Bedford. These straps are made right here in the U.S.A. using a unique, high quality nubuck leather. The Bedford is extremely versatile and is available in 10 colors and four sizes to cover all of your watch and occasion needs.
To achieve the distinctive finish you see here, the nubuck is lightly distressed and the result is a subtle suede-like texture. By using nubuck paired with a calfskin lining, you get the best of both worlds in terms of a suede appearance and increased durability over your standard suede calfskin strap.
The Bedford is offered in 10 hand-picked hues, from olive green to navy blue to chestnut brown. The color is even throughout the strap, with no staining, for an elevated look to dress up or down. Each strap features off-white all around stitching, which offers an additional aesthetic touch to increase wearability and versatility, as well as offering some extra durability.
Despite the increased durability of these straps, each one measures around 2mm thick, making for easy and comfortable wear.
The new Bedford straps are available now exclusively in the HODINKEE Shop for $165 each.
As always, we're available via live chat and at if you have any questions about the new Bedford Strap or any other products.
