I have had the original Apple Milanese loop band since launch day and I love it more than any other band I have tried on. It is comfortable and feels like good solid construction. I just bought the space black milanese loop and the quality is absolutely horrible. Not only does it feel more flimsy, but the material feels much cheaper as well. I had bought a third party space black band a couple of months ago, and it feels almost identical to that. Plus it smudged almost immediately after pulling it out of the box. Anyone else have thoughts on this? Am I alone here?
