Pretty but uncomfortable
I have the G&B railroad spike bangle so thought I would try this, but it was just too uncomfortable. It hurt to put it on, it hurt to wear it, and it hurt to get it off. It's the same size as other bracelets I have, so I don't know what the problem is. I guess it's just too stiff/not flexible enough. If you have a smallish wrist (I would describe mine as average), you should be fine. But mine is going back.

SO small!
i was really excited about this bangle as i have seen it and the other color on many different fashion bloggers that i follow, but it was just WAY TOO small...:-( i tried it on in my house several times, but it was just impossbile to wear and it hurt to get it on and off... i actually have a fairly small wrist, so i'm not sure what the deal was, but it's def going back...i am SO bummed.

Love this bracelet
I find this bracelet so comfortable that I've been wearing for the past 2 months non-stop. I even sleep in it. It's a great basic and I get a ton of complimemnts on it too.

Love it!
Great bracelet, but it is a bit large. I worry that the hook will come undone.

Giles & Brother Hook Wrap Bracelet
Great colour & style , Packaging could be better, Maybe in a box or bag from Giles & brother, instead it came in a plastic bag which looks tacky and thanks to shopbop a shopbop box (thank you ) This lovely Bracelet is a gift for my friends birthday. I hope she likes it xx

cool & pretty but too large
I bought this as a gift for a friend but when it arrived it was too large on me and I have average to slighter larger wrists than most women, I think. It wraps three times but has so much slack that it seemed there was no way the hook would stay in the "eye" and there wasn't enough leather to go around a forth time. Plus, the hook part is a little too long to be comfortable if it were against your skin. So I had to send it back. But it was very pretty, I imagine had it fit, it would be something one wore every day. Also, came in nice G & B box.

Comes unhooked
Loved this look but it constantly came undone. I feared I'd lose it, plus it was very annoying. I have Stella and dot stuff cheaper that doesn't fall off while wearing. I had to return it sadly.

Everyday piece
I wear this almost daily with a gold chain strap watch. Other reviewers have mentioned that it was larger than expected but I found it was ok, I just wear it a bit higher up on my arm (my wrists are on the smaller side). If it was any smaller, it would be hard to put it on yourself. Great simple piece that will look nice when layered with other bracelets, bangles and watches.

Nice wrap but comes undone
I agree with the other reviews - a nice wrap to mix with other bracelets or wear alone daily. But the darn thing comes undone often which is rather annoying. It's a little large for my wrist which is what I think is the problem. But the color, quality of the leather is great.

I just couldn't resist
I swear I wasn't going to get anything when I was surfing the site but I could not resist this bracelet. It is just too cute. The clasp is a little darker and more muted than it appears on the site, but that is about the only issue. The length of the bracelet is just right for my wrist, not to tight, not to loose. I expect to have this in heavy rotation for spring and summer as it is such a bright, fresh pop of color.

Nice Enough
I've bought a few Giles & Brother items and find that I keep rating them 'average' or 'good' rather than 'excellent'. There's always some little issue. With this necklace it's that it's a little smaller/tighter around the neck than I expected. I just thought it would hang a little bit more. I think the price for it is probably very good at $105. I see it as kind of a fall back item, when I can't find a necklace I really love to go with my outfit for the day, this will probably go with a number of ensembles. It's the design that's reminiscent of two safety pins stretched and clasped together which makes it kind of different. If the workmanship were a little more detailed/just better I'd think it was excellent. I think that's really the issue with these G&B pieces-- I wish they were better quality, and I'd pay for it too. That said though, this is still a perfectly nice necklace. I wouldn't run out an d buy it again, but I'm not returning it either.

Cute Enough
I'm actually somewhat on the fence as to whether or not to return this item. Had I seen it in a store, I may still have gotten it on an impulse. It is cute, but not particularly special. The clasp is very tricky I find, and I really dislike that in a bracelet. I feel like I'm going to break a nail fiddling with it. For the price I wouldn't say it's a good value, but it's well priced I think. Were it $70 I think it would be worth the money and perhaps a bit more fairly priced, put it that way. But you're paying a certain amount for brand and marketing. Nothing too much to write home about on this one, but it's a cute little piece, if you don't mind a tricky clasp. I could believe that it was a variation in manufacturing and others might not be so difficult.
