    Hi, i’m interested in buying an additional band (apple brand only) for my watch and wanted to get some input. Regardless of price which is more comfortable or looks better?

    The leather buckle vs the leather loop?

    How about the milanese? Does it slide often?

    I find the leather loop to be the most comfortable Apple Watch band made to date. It’s very soft, quilted leather. As far as which one looks better, that’s obviously a personal preference based on what somebody thinks. I think they’re both very good looking bands. But my preference lies with the leather loop. And it’s also highly adjustable with the magnets.

    The Milanese loop is another good band, but it does need to be readjusted quite often. But the magnet is very strong.

    The leather loop is more comfortable than the leather buckle, in my opinion.

    I’d go with the leather loop, only because the Milanese damn near rips all the hair off of my arms. Also, as mentioned above, the Milanese magnet does slip sometimes with motion. Oh! And I’m scared to hell it will scratch my MacBook Pro.

    If you’re a female, you’ll likely not have this problem, and my words will have been meaningless.

    I would say go for the classic buckle comfort be damned. The leather loop to me anyway, is just damn ugly.

    +1 on the classic buckle. I had Sapphire and Saddle and they were insanely comfortable bands. And looked great with SS.

    I hadn’t seen that as a choice on the OP.

    Anyone using a leather buckle on a space grey? I think the lugs will clash?

    I have the black leather buckle with space grey watch but haven't open the band yet and may sell it. I'm leaning towards buying the black loop instead.

    I have a fancy watch that already has a black buckle.
