    The 8 plus leather cases on the Apple store in the UK have been out of stock for weeks. Any idea why or when they might get some more?

    They tend to refresh colors for the season, so I'd expect new spring colors after the upcoming Apple event.

    My local Apple store is inexplicably out of the charcoal grey and fuchsia color and has been for a few weeks now.

    Buy it at Apple online. Free shipping and you have it in a few days. ;)

    Going to Best Buy and price matching would be even sweeter instant gratification

    There was a press release earlier this week about new Watch band colors becoming available "later this month", including new sports and classic buckle colors. In the past, there have been a concurrent refresh of cases to match the new bands (i.e., new silicone cases to match the sports band colors, and leather cases to match the classic buckle bands).

    Thanks guys but I'm in the UK. Most suppliers including Apple have next to no stock apart from the normal black and midnight blue.
