    Milanese Mesh recommendations?

    It snowed here in NYC the other day, but still, it's April and it'll be warm soon. My workplace gets hot in the afternoon when it's even slightly warm. At any rate, i thought i might try milanese mesh this spring/summer. The watches would be on the casual side of dressy. Any suggestions as to what's good or what to avoid? Thanks!

    You can get one cheap on Amazon, but you will have to trim it yourself and it a pain. Look on Youtube. Strapcode orders are cut to your size. Mesh is old school cool, I have it on several watches and really like it's uniqueness

    I like the Vollmer mesh bracelets. Got mine from long island watch.

    If you're looking for one that has sizing options the same way a regular bracelet would, Staib's are really nice, they are the manufacturer of a lot of great watch bands. They are in the $150 price range. They come in specified lengths and are adjustable by removing links in the same way a normal bracelet is.

    I can say that their satin finish looks and feels really nice, but if you have a watch with a lot of polish on it, you might prefer the polished finish.

    I will say that microadjustment on their butterfly clasps is not as fine as it is on one with a buckle.

    So i went with a Staib with the butterfly deployant. I rather like the looks and action of the deployant, but it is true that it's harder to micro adjust.

    It looks fine with the divers i have but I'm not sure it works with the watch i wear most:

    Not the bracelets fault that the watch lugs are hideously long
