Rated 1 out of 5 by DanD Just looks cheap
The lather of this strap is so paper-thin that it's obvious to anyone who glances at your wrist, and this makes it look bad.
This isn't J. Crew's fault necessarily. This is a nato-style watch strap (meaning one-piece, pass-through design), and all nato-style straps are super thin. This works fine for nylon, but not so much for leather.
The solution for me was to buy a zulu-style strap from another vendor. Zulu-style straps slip onto the watch the same way nato-style straps do, but they are much thicker. If you're considering this watch band, first take a look on Amazon or another vendor for 18mm zulu-style leather straps. I think you'll find those options to look much more attractive.

Feels like fake leather that's on a halloween costume.

Rated 2 out of 5 by chrisM Looks nice, but...
quality is a bit lacking. Leather is particularly thin and soft which makes for a flimsy watch strap, although that might be by design for a slip-through type watch strap. I've had this now for about a month and I wear it about 3x a week- I feel as though I might just rip it if i'm not careful enough. Definitely does not feel as durable as the nylon watch straps. We'll see..

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nick thin and flimsy
very thin and looks nice in the picture but not very sturdy and looks closer to plastic in person.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sandman48 It fits my watch!
That's the good news. I read other reviews before purchasing this strap that this item may not be up to our expectations for JCREW. I would agree with those reviews. The leather is very thin and feels and looks a little cheap. I'm not returning it, I like the way it looks with my watch, but I can't recommend purchasing this one.
