These are the one's I have found, I like the Red strap the best but the White Letters keep falling off.

I found a nice authentic hippie strap once that had hippie attached.
Well, that's the only way to really get them.

I think I've told the story of why I will never use the dog-clip fasteners they come with, (at least without welding them shut) before.

It involved nearly dropping an FTb onto a tour group of kindergarteners from three stories up and a miraculous midair snatch of the loose end, as well as, I believe, someone's assistance in keeping me from going over the railing in the process. Beware cheap fasteners. Not worth the karma.

Thanks, I didn't get that lucky when I was looking the other day though. Lots more since then. Anyway, I've got one coming I think, an old rainbow strap, though I still may try making one or two just for fun now that I see how easy they are. The luxury strap cracked me up though. Nice, but that place, the straps they cost more than most of my cameras did! LOL

Ooh, now *that's* something that'd be precious to a small group of overlapping fandoms.

What's all this talk of retro, I'm still using the original LX straps they came with, in fact I have moved them across to my DSLR's now.

A while back pacific rim camera had some NOS pentax straps. Can't really get much more retro than that.

They still have a bunch of Pentax straps, though I think they are the new type similar to those that ship with the current model cameras.

Here is a copy/paste from their catalog:
