Leather Elements: A size review

This post is inspired by Jenn from Stories from the Saddle who sent me a note asking about the sizing of this particular bracelet that was purchased for me from Etsy seller: Leather Elements. Of which I commented that I owned this bracelet from a post about the smaller version of said item by Fly on Over.

For my birthday last year, I got this leather cuff from my daughter from my Etsy wishlist. It's soft and smells awesome. It's very well made. 

Here it is - the Saratoga - on my 6.5" wrist. I wear size 7 SSG gloves for reference.

And here's the underside. I don't find the snaps bothersome at all. 

 Now shown below with a standard 'gents' size swatch watch (not the small ladies size).

I wear it on my right wrist and always wear watches on my left, so never the two would normally meet. I probably wouldn't wear anything else with this 1.25" cuff. If you wanted to have multi-bracelets I would recommend getting the thinner, Lexington, version for that.

Just really depends on the look you're going for. The Saratoga cuff is definitely a cuff.

On a side note, I also own this leather card holder, also by Leather Elements which is just fabulous and perfect for toting around your license, credit cards and some cash at shows.
