Strap repair question
I was putting on my Canadian military issue Black Watch tonight, in preparation for taking my wife out to dinner, and the one of the straps tore off. It was held on with what appears to be some sort of canvas, or a similar material. I'm really not surprised, as this kilt is nearly as old as my parents (made in 1957).
The leather straps and the buckles are in great shape, but the material holding the straps to the kilt is falling apart.
What would be a suitable replacement material, that would be somewhat close to the original, strong enough to hold up to several more years of use, and easy to work with?
