    Can I wear a small watch with milanese strap with a suit?

    I have a 37mm mido commander on a milanese strap.I know it is said that leather straps are preferable for suits, but I am wondering if milanese straps have just enough formality to be able to be pulled off with a suit.

    liubeeli,
    You're going to make yourself crazy and doubt your own self in everything if have to ask my opinion. I could tell you what I like and you will have second and third thoughts about your watch and bracelet combination.....Instead do this, wear what you want and like whenever and don't ask for an opinion.....Yes people wear both leather and milanese, and milanese or leather straps with suits.
    See what I said? Incase you're OCD I put leather first and then put Milanese first incase you wanted to read anything into what I said.
    So in closing, it's time to go to the local farmers market.....

    It would be a bit casual, but IMO it'd stay at the level of mildly distinctive, no more. Points of mild departure from the 'norm' make you a person, not a robot, so long as you honor the tradition generally.

    I've worn an OKEAH on mesh with business wear many times. Folks wear larger sport watches on bracelets with suits all the time. Why not?
