Any chance we will see a 38mm leather loop?

    I have a 38mm space grey sport and I'm not a huge fan of the sport band. I think it's great at what it sets out to be (ie a sport band..) but I think a more traditional leather loop type band would be more comfortable throughout the day.

    There's a 3rd party making them, but I can't seem to find the link.

    I just ordered one of these 38mm leather bands for $22...

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X3L4X9C

    Not so much for the cheap leather band itself, but for the cheap band adapter which supposedly uses regular screw heads.

    Then I use any band I want.

    It sounds too good to be true, so I'll be pleasantly surprised if it comes and works :)

    I'm hoping more bands are announced at WWDC. I really want a leather loop dark brown or a dark brown sport band.

    If they are a top seller for 42mm, I am sure we will see a 38mm variant.

    Couldn't you just buy one for a 42mm and cut it down with some scissors?

    So my purchase was updated with a tracking number. It is an epacket tracking number but mine as well has no information. It does not surprise me though as tracking usually does not get updated tell it clears customs. Even then it might not get updated tell after it is delivered.

    Interesting. Well, the last thing I ordered from China had no tracking number whatsoever, so I guess I didn't really have high hopes going into this to begin with. Here's to hoping the band is half decent, yeah?

    For $35 I feel something has to be wrong with it... It looks great from the pictures though... It will look great when it arrives! After a few months though I feel like it is going to fade and or start cracking. But we shall see! Hopefully I am wrong!

    I am desperately hoping for one of these, or at least some high-quality aluminum adapters to come to the market soon.

    I have no doubt there'd be interest in it... Although if delivery times are any indication, Apple struggled with production for the 42s, so it could be a while before we see them.

    Okay so the seller PM'd me on eBay this morning and asked if I had gotten the band or not, and when I told him no and that my tracking number didn't work, he asked me to confirm my address (for some reason) and that he would check with the post office. Not sure what's going on here.

    Edit: the seller told me that the package was returned to them and offered me a refund. It looks like I won't be getting my leather loop :(

    I ordered one of these, too. Supposed to be here in another week or so. I'm going out of town on business, so I'm hoping it's waiting for me when I get back.
