Alligator 101
Alligator straps vary in price, so I thought I’d give a brief explanation of how the straps are cut and they effect on prices. Below is a picture of an alligator belly, the source of alligator strap leather. You’ll 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, they don’t get as many straps out of each alligator skin they purchase.
Alternatively, some manufacturers use a horizontal cut from the alligator belly, this gets a better yield per skin, but the cuts are a mixed variety, more exotic style grain.

Below is a nice collection of square grain alligators, some of the best in the industry.
