  1. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to post this. I look forwards to trying it out
  2. There are a few more good ideas there I have also looked at a period specific way they used to tie sword belts as an option. Two holes in one end, the other end cut into two long tapering thongs ( think swallow tail but long and narrow ). Thread thongs through holes and tie in an overhand knot. It works and with sets of holes in pairs is adjustable.
  3. Thank you kindly for the ideas chaps
  4. Hello wonder if any of you gents can help I have made a leather satchel type bag that will be used in a historical context eg: early medieval. Having come up against the same challange I am sure they did back then, the piece for the shoulder strap was not long enogh for a continuous strap and will have to be jioned. I was thinking of just scarfing and sewing the overlapped pieces together but wondered if there was a way to make it adjustable without using buckles etc. I have a fair bit of overlap to play with. Hope that makes sense Regards Mark.
