Alligator 101
Alligator straps vary in price, so I thought Id give a lesson in how prices are determined.
Above is a picture of an alligator belly, the source of alligator strap leather. Youll notice in the center of the skin the scales are much wider than the outer edges.
This is where the premium cuts of alligator come from and are often referred to as center cut, large scale, vertical or bamboo style scale patterns.
Depending on the lug width of the straps being prepared you only get 6-8 alligator bands out of this center section for every skin you purchase.
The rest of the skin is what makes up the small scale and exotic grain straps.
Using vertical cuts reduces the yield of every skin a manufacturer buys and accordingly you see higher prices for straps coming from the center of the belly.
Other determinants are: the country of manufacture, the lining and other special preparations.
Alternatively, some manufacturers use a horizontal cut from the alligator belly, you get a better yield, i.e. more straps from one skin, but no square grain straps.
Here they are, in decreasing price buckets
