    Hello fellow AW wearers,
    I have a silver AWS and love it, wear it every day and have a bit of an addiction with the bands :p I have 9 OEM bands and a few third party ones that I never wear.
    Anyway, one of the OEM bands I have is the black leather loop. I like it ok, but not a ton. I do want a good comfy leather band, but with the LL I find myself not wearing it much due to it being a little hot and just not extremely comfortable especially compared to the new woven nylon bands which I LOVE. So I'm wondering if I should sell it and get a Classic Buckle instead. Does anyone have both or have owned and worn both who could give their opinions on this?

    IMO, CB is a step above LL in quality of leather and looks. LL is nice because of its infinite fit around any wrist. But other than that, CB is better.

    I've noticed the leather does look a lot nicer in terms of leather quality. May have to swap them out by selling it.

    I prefer the CB to the LL by feel alone. The leather on the CB feels more natural on my wrist while the LL's ridges are very noticeable. The biggest gripe I have against the CB (and maybe Apple for that matter) is that the lugs are stainless steel, so they will match better with the SS or silver sport more than the other watch finishes. But I solved that problem by buying a 3rd party lug online to swap.

    The classic buckle can be worn loose so it's not so hot.
