I'm not usually one to get "knock off" anything... just always felt that its better to buy genuine goods. But on a impulse buy I picked up a JETech Milanese Loop band when Amazon had it on their daily sales. I figured it was worth giving a try for $20. I have thought about the Milanese Loop but wasn't sure I'd like it so was resistant to buy the Apple version. My two bands are Black Classic Leather and Black Sport... on my SS 42mm. My reasoning was that I'd try the cheapo knock off and if I really liked it then I could get the real one. I've actually been very happy with it so far... and not sure I'll go for spending more. I need to go buy a store and see how the real band feels in comparison, but this one is very comfortable and looks great.
