IMO, Milanese Loop looked feminine in person. The band is too thin.

    Just saying. I tried the 38mm and 42mm at one of the Tokyo stores earlier.

    If the band had been wider it might be more masculine, but I immediately thought it looked like a women's watch. Just my 2 cents.

    I still like how it looks even if it's not the most "manliest " looking band. The fact that it's steel and infinitely adjustable are the main reason why I ordered it. I've always had trouble with traditional bands so this should fit my wrist to perfection.

    I haven't seen it yet but I ordered it 3:03am est. I'm so excited. Women's band swomens band, I could care less, it looks super comfy and so sleek, love the magnet fit and it matches the SS perfect. I wear old beat jeans, boots t shirts and sweatshirts, it looks to me it can be fancy or casual. Throw a leather braclet next to it and it's casual time, put it with a suit and "I'm so fancy" imo the best band by a wide wide margin

    Disagree and so did all the staff (most of who have ordered the Milanese) Completely unisex and the nicest of all the bands

    I tried the 42mm and 38mm with Milanese Loop this morning (plus 42mm Link).

    Didn't look "feminine" to me, and it was very light and smooth and very comfortable.

    The issue I had was that my wrists are at the bottom end of the size range for the 42mm with Milanese Loop, which meant the magnetic end went all the way round to the other side of the Watch. It just looked... wrong.

    The Milanese Loop on the 38mm case fit perfectly, and looked great... but I found the case itself too small (despite my wrist size).

    What's your wrist size, ? I think I'm about 185, hope that's not the case

    the range on the 42mm milanese is 155-200, you would be ok.

    Around 155mm (6") circumference, with a wrist width of around 50-55mm.

    185mm will be absolutely fine for the 42mm with Milanese Loop.


    According to Apple's Size Guide:

    38mm with Milanese Loop fits 130mm to 180mm.

    42mm with Milanese Loop fits 150mm to 200mm.

    I think you seem to worry too much about feminine and masculine.

    Nothing on me looks feminine as I'm big all over (hehehe) so I'm unbothered. :cool:
