I was wondering if straps can be sold separately. I would love a shoulder strap for my WC and mono speedies and found that the strap from the roxbury would be the perfect length. So my questions is can I purchase just the roxbury strap and not the bag? Thanks in advance.

I like the idea of a shoulder strap for a Speedy as well but where exactly are you attaching it on the bag?

You can attach the strap to the metal chads that hold the handles on the Speedy BUT the straps will eventually rub and leave a black mark on the handles of the Speedy. I use a strap with my Mono and Damier Speedys and there is a black mark on my Mono Speedy.

Thanks for letting me know. I wish the speedy had a place at each end to attach a strap. And your collection is wonderful by the way!

I use my Palermo strap on my Pochette. I haven't tried it on my Speedy 30 yet. I need to test it out.

Oh wow I don't want a black mark oh the handles. How bad of mark does it leave?
I've always used a strap since day one for my Mono Speedy, so the strap ends that connect to the Speedy have been black on the edge. But, occasionally I will clean them and the blackness is not so bad. It really isn't that noticeable to begin with but it would probably bother some people - especially those individuals that don't like straps with Speedys to begin with.

peace43,I can see from your collection the pics with your Speedy with a strap. Does the bag hang awkwardly since it appears the strap is connected at an angle?
