    Went in around noon, and asked if they had watch bands in yet. The person helping me wasn't sure so they asked the manager who said they had gotten a shipment last night but weren't sure if they were on the floor yet or where they'd be; we looked around and saw an employee putting them out on the shelf! Talk about perfect timing.

    I'm very pleased, I was tired of worrying about getting my leather strap wet or sweaty ##

    Definitely the white. It's heavier, and feels more supple and higher quality. I also don't have to worry as much about that quality issue where the black sports band starts peeling etc

    Very nice, I'm thinking about getting a Space Grey sport and putting a blue leather loop on it and keeping the black sports band for my steel watch

    The leather loops look good on the Space Gray... I found a pic of the blue leather loop on a SG so you can see it

    No link bracelets. You have to ask one of the employees what other bands they have because they only have the Sports out for display

    Thanks for the tip. I asked one guy at the door and he told me no. I said I have numerous sources telling me otherwise, can you please ask somebody else and another enthusiastic gentleman came and helped me out.
    That's 1 white and 1 blue sports band, and a medium black leather loop for me this week. Snaggin' my milanese when I see one, and I'm done.

    Right now they have a 38mm Milanese loop, I'm looking for a 42mm :(

    The guy at the door is not friendly at all, he's kind of a jerk and super rude tbh

    We must have been there at the same time. I picked up a band too for my gf

    You didn't happen to see Milanese on the shelf did you? They said they had it when i called but then when i went there, they were 'sold out'

    Went to Old Orchard Friday around 6:30pm and picked up a 42mm white sport band. Asked for a 42mm Milanese loop and they said they only had a few colors of the sport bands available in both sizes. Only saw black, white, and blue in both sizes while I was there.
