Subs without bracelets

Hello all,
I am hoping to get my first Rolex - a 116610LN soon. I am not too fond of wearing it on a bracelet though. I was wondering how many others tend to wear their subs on alternate bands...
If you do wear your sub on any kind of leather/fabric/rubber strap, please show them off here, basically any strap made of anything other than metal. I would really appreciate strap designs and ideas.

Submariner on a 16mm regimental single piece strap. I use 2.5mm spring bars to stay consistent with the maxi case design.

I don't own a sub (yet) but I love them on the nato straps like above and also those vintage suede straps.

The Iconic 5517 had fixed bars so a Nato strap was the only option, Phoenix manufacture for the British Army and also sell to the Public, I own 3 and rotate them on other watches.

Here's a leather strap I made on my 114060:

I need to switch over to the curved springbars though as the leather is rubbing against the housing.

Subs on canvas have got to be my favorite. I think they just look killer.
