 Looking for a good seat strap

Well, I've got to start in playing bassoon again, and so I must again start looking for a seat strap.

My horn is an old used Schrieber, originally only with a boot cover and no attachment point. I've had a spilt ring added, and would use my old strap from the 1970s' (which was a hideous leather belt with the buckle removed and a bass clarinet neckstrap hook through one of the notch-holes) but my lovely wife, in a fit of good taste, decided some years back to give it to the Goodwill Industries.

I've got a "bucket" affair, made of poorly prepared split leather, but it's a real nuisance to use. What I'd like to do is to purchase one that meets the following specifications:

1) Not flashy - brown or black plain leather

2) Sueded finish on one side, Japanned or shoe leather finish on the other

3) No buckles or other "adjustment means", just a straight leather strap

4) Provided with a permanently attached hook

Does such a commercially available animal exist, or do I need to visit the nice people at the local leather shop and have them stitch one up for me?

(We have used them before to fix band equipment and to hem my now-skinny wife's leather pants, so they could do the job without a problem (but at a custom cost).)

Thanks in advance for any help that can be given.
