    Would you wear the Milanese Loop? It is the one I want but I can't decide if it is meant to be gender neutral or not.

    If I was to buy any Apple watch, that's the only one I'd buy. After today though, don't think I can stomach it. It's just not that impressive, and I already wear a watch I love, but that's besides the point. Yes, Milanese is nice.

    I personally don't like it. However if that is the one your prefer, get it and wear it who cares what other people think.

    What people think of me is very important.

    I like it from both a looks and price aspect. My main worry is that it wouldn't look right with the sport watch that I plan to get.

    Compared to the links it's not as great looking honestly. I'd opt for leather over the loop every day of the week.

    problem with that is the s.s. connector won't match the aluminum watch

    I'm getting it with the sport watch. I think it looks fine

    I don't like the $50 sport bands so I figure it's the best looking for the $150 range of bands

    If cost isn't a concern, get the link bracelet. However, the milanese loop is a great alternative for anyone, man or woman. Milanese bands are back in style and many higher priced watches have them.

    I'm on the fence regarding the Milanese too. I'll have to try one on to be sure.

    Unfortunately, from purely a looks standpoint, the one I like best is the Space Black Stainless with Space Black Link Bracelet. Which is $1100. Naturally. Boy it's a beaut though.

    Exactly, I'd have to see it in person before I bought it.

    I agree the link bracelet is my favorite too, but I can't see spending that much for it

    It's definitely unisex, but might be a bit too fancy to be worn with casual clothes.

    very much like the Milanese Loop. very tempted to get it. wish there was a space grey option - but then, i can't afford the space grey SS watch, so i wouldn't be able to afford the space grey Loop either :(

    Same boat but I think the solution may be the space grey sport edition... ought to give a nice contrast rather than the not quite matched look of the regular aluminium sport.

    Watch Sport + Milanese Loop = Best Combo

    This combination looks sick. I'm liking it far more than the Stainless Steel + Milanese Loop.

    You get the two Sports Bands for wearing casually or when you're active. You get a Milanese Loop for when you're wearing a shirt with collars. I mean, you are going to need both straps if you're going to be active. When you're jogging, do you want all your sweat getting in between your Milanese Loop? I imagine not.

    Code:
    38mm Watch Sport + 2x Sports Straps + 1x Milanese Loop = $498
    Code:
    38mm Watch + 1x Milanese Loop = $649
    38mm Watch + 2x Sports Straps + 1x Milanese Loop = $698
    Seems like a no-brainer to me, especially since Stainless Steel will smudge and look less pretty than Aluminium when you actually wear it on a daily basis. Who else is getting a Watch Sport with a non-Sports band?

    I'll wait to see the combination in real life, but it may be one to think about.

    By the way, it's 'Milanese' (as in from Milan), not 'Minalese' :)
    Edit: Nevermind, changed now!

    I'm a little worried the finishes won't quite mesh well together in real life...no pun intended!

    Corrected. I kind of guessed how it was spelt given how it's pronounced, but for some reason I just typed it like that. :p

    I will probably be getting the 42mm Sport Black + Milanese band. Will have to see how the black and silver will go together.

    It seems pretty good given the previews on mixyourwatch! That's where I got the rendering from.

    I tried it out on that site but I don't think they go together as well as the normal Watch Sport.
