Michael Friedberg Wrote:To go back to the original question, it's more than the supplier. All alligator straps are coded so they can be traced to the farm where the skin is from and even more specifically (I'm not sure if it's to the year, to a given group of animals, etc.). This is because of the stringent worldwide rules regarding exports/imports of endangered species.This question pops up occasionally, and I believe there's more in the archives. But no codes ;)
What you do may not be so important, but it is very important that you do it well. (my variation of a saying by Gandhi)

RayinLA Wrote:Can the straps be personalized? I would think the answer is yes, but curious what the cost and anybody here as managed to get a personalized strap? When I am logged in and looking at some photos under collections i have noticed at least two images showing up with a strap that is personalized as RAY, which means this is an option available. What is the cost in rough numbers?
watch the time...
