I bought some narrow Harley Benton leather straps, a headstrap and installed violin strap button at the bottom.

I think it looks good with the smaller button and the narrow strap and the headstrap gets rid of the shoelaces.

Nice. I prefer the one strap button with headstock attachment as well if I play with a strap.
 
It looks pretty good indeed.

Harley benton you say, is it all available from Thomann?
And which pieces are genuine vs faux leather?

I might copy that head strap solution if it is real leather.

Yes a Thomann brand and both are genuine leather. Headstrap is available from Martin or Aliexpress.

I did cut the headstrap narrower to suit the ukulele.
 
There are a lot of different brands on Amazon and Ebay. Also at Music store sites. Most are guitar extensions or small straps. THey come in real leather and man-made faux leather. I don't remember the brand, but one offered a wide variety of brown, tan and black color leathers. Some with a star on the button and most plain. In Antique brass, or chrome silver.

It trimmed a couple down width wise, and used them for a while. Even made my own. I think they look much classier than a shoelace.

Eventually, I decided I preferred strap pins on the side of the heel.

Here's an Amazon link to the Calvery strap extensions, but they are currently unavailable.

The button on the starred ones is a bit bigger than on the cheap aliexpresses, which I think suits a ukulele better.
