JCrew Watch Straps

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any experience with these watch straps:

They have a pretty good selection, but what is the quality like? I believe they are nylon. Are they stiff and uncomfortable? I have made that mistake before.


There is also this suede one, which seems like it could be interesting

I find them to be of decent quality for the sale price. I actually just replaced mine after about 18 months of hard wear. If you search for NATO watch bands, you'll get a lot of other online options. I don't think JCrew offers them in varying widths- I would use these for 38 or 40mm timepieces.

They are pretty cheap. You can get the same ones on Ebay for far less.

Leffot has the Cordovan Ones.

They are ok. J Press has some nice ones also. Quality isgood.
I don't like the suede one...Looks like it will get dirty very quickly..

Some of the JPress selection look nice, but a fairly expensive for what they are. What are they made of?

I guess nylon. I have one(below-black/orange) on a Hamilton face for the summer/spring. I don't wear it every day so I feel that the quality is good. To me, it's a summer band vs a year-round:

Is it soft or rigid?

I have found bands before that are very rigid and I'm not a fan. The price might be worth it if it fits what I'm looking for.

nice get for that price...

I feel the price is affordable, quality is obviously equivalent to the price point. I'm not one to wear watches too often, but I would like to pick up a few to throw around my vintage Timex watches. Nice choice with the chambray, though.
