Default Cosmetic Hose Clamps, Which do you use?

I want to get one of those catch cans from CCA and later get their braided hose kit but I want to have fancy hose clamps as well. Of course i want them all to match so I'm wondering what hose clamps people here use on their cars. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

My catch can was relocated when the supercharger was installed but I got the SS hoses and fasteners from Chip at CCA.

So you just use the normal band clamps and not the fancy aircraft looking fittings? Chip said he only carried the cosmetic clamps for the catch cans but not for the other hoses he sells. I don't mind using regular clamps where you won't see them but I'd like matching clamps that look like fittings where they are visible.

Here is my engine bay using the Red and Blue cosmetic connector covers. These connector covers were from Chip also.

LMH4C5 has a better picture but I use the fittings I got from Chip on a couple different areas along with the SS lines. (note the lines going into the air breather along with the fittings) I do use regular clamps such as those on the radiator hose that I got again from CCA only because you don't see the clamps. Hope that helps.
