    I didn't have the balls to order the Milanese loop. Now that I've seen the photos from MacRumors forum members, I'm consumed with agonising regret.

    I'll order one separately, but the shipping is listed as "May".

    [I'm British. We like exaggerating. We think it's funny. Please don't tell me that the Holocaust was worse than this and I should be ashamed of myself. Like you did last time.]

    I'm British too and also wish I'd ordered the Milanese loop as well. Let's mourn together over crumpets and tea.

    What's with British men and their opposition to the Milanese Loop?

    I'll never understand the allurement to this band. It's not that great and it was the most uncomfortable band I tried on today.

    Are only the Brits attracted to it then? No one else anywhere in the world?

    Wow I've heard the opposite from many, especially in my Twitter feed. Some said it was the most comfortable band they'd ever worn. I guess that just shows how personal something you wear is.

    That's really it. Personal preference. I'm glad people love that band so much, and yall should be glad there's at least one person you don't have to fight over to get one :D

    To be fair, my plan was always to get the cheapest SS and then order the straps so I can try them out at home and return them if I don't like them. Easier than going to an Apple Store. Just have to wait a bit.

    I love the Milanese. I have a Skägen with it. I ordered a 42mm SS with Milanese.

    Really? Wow, I'm getting the link band, but the mesh band is by far the most comfortable one it tried on.

    Right? When I shut everything down to go to sleep, my smoke alarm started chirping loudly every 60 seconds. :mad:

    Hmmm is it strictly Brits? I saw that thing and my first thought was "It would look great on my wife".....

    I thought the same thing but probably because my wife wears these type of bands.

    I'm British and thought the Milanese was the worst band I've used. It doesn't sit flat on your wrist because of the loop, feels quite loose, and the way it bulks up at the loop is so un-Apple-like. I thought I was going to love it till I saw it in person.

    I bet nobody gets good heart-monitor readings with it.

    Holocaust was worse than this (and Hitler was more evil than Tim Cook). :D

    This can't be true. It's the only band you can attach to fit as you please.

    No kidding!! I tried it on too; not only did it look feminine on me it was pulling my hairs on my wrist as I tightened it. Nothing like torturing yourself every time you take your watch on and off. Your arm-hair gets stuck in the little loops, yikes:eek:

    So strange! Mine did too - apparently it ran low on batteries. What a weird coincidence

    Milanese Loop

    Yes, that is one classy watch band. I tried in on at the Apple Store today.
    Because of the cost, I'll pass on it then wait and see the 3rd party bands that are bound to pop up.

    It's true because of the way it doesn't sit flat on your wrist. Heck, you can see from the very first picture on this page that it simply CAN'T sit flat.

    It was by far the most surprisingly band experience I had at the store, since I was expecting to love it. Was simply the opposite feeling I had.

    Did it pull on anyone else's arm hairs? It was uncomfortable, but beautiful. Maybe I attached it wrong as I was in a rush to try on every band.
