    You can't for now.
    it's an advert from Nike, but it won't necessery be the real thing at the end :
    I remember that in the past there were some differences between advert and real outfit.

    Anyway, you could buy them (exclusive Premier wristbands) at the booth Nike will have at Indian wells OR Miami (location isn't the same each year).
    And as there was no winter12 and spring13 regular wristbands sold in stores, not sure these will be sold either.
    Good luck for chasing the Premier one at the Nike booth then ;)

    Actually, if I remember correctly, Nike still sold Premiers in Miami last year. They just happened to be the same colorways they sold in Indian Wells. The only difference is that Miami had a promo bandana in Electrolime/Black that was not sold in Indian Wells.

    Cheers!

    Is there a chance that Indian Wells or Miami will be selling the Teal bandana to match Nadal's shirt?

    Right !
    But not necessary a sample as there will be a blue polo for USO (or pre-USO)
    It may be the real thing.

    I would love to see Nike bring back a unlined 100% polyester warm-up jacket in all solid black again without any trim color on it. I been looking and most of them have ugly strips of white, green or blue color. Plus, the side pockets are not zippered or buttoned in todays models.

    Some models have pockets are even worse and are openned at a diagonal, so what ever you place in them will fall out when you move your body for walking or bending over. On top of that; they are very shallow too. My old Nike warm-up - 20 years old could hold three tennis balls inside of one pocket and you could play tennis and they would not fall out. The current models can hold two; but you cannot move or one will fall out and if you bend over to pick up a tennis ball; the remaining ball will come out of the pocket. I returned three Nike warm-ups because of this happening.

    Nike wants $65.00-$79.00 for this type of jacket which is a total waste of money since it a badly designed jacket. I hate also to have a draw string at the bottom of the jacket since it very easy to have the string get tangled in door entrances. Nike has shortcut somehow the process and are not testing the warm-up jackets before they go to production it seems.

    Did you know Nike sold a N98 track top / warm-up in plain black, with black stripes and black zippers? Can't get more black than that. Admittedly, it was priced at a typically Nike price. The even had an all-black one but with neon pink zippers.

    No I did not! I will check it out and see what it looks like. thanks.

    Here what I found:

    Nike Rafa Power Court N98 Jacket Holiday 2012 Men
    •Dri-FIT French terry cloth wicks moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable.
    •Ribbed, double knit stand up collar for added warmth.
    •Full length front zipper.
    •Embroidered eyelets underarm for enhanced ventilation.
    •Zippered side pockets for secure on-court storage.
    •Ribbed, double knit waist and sleeve cuffs for a secure fit.
    •Embroidered Nike at left chest.
    •Heat sealed Rafa Bull logo at right pocket.
    •Flat seam stitching and anti abrasion labeling prevents chafing and irritation.

    It looks like it thick and could be hot wearing it around. Plus, it a fitted jacket too. I think I will past on this model jacket. It is clearance out at $100. But it was $130! Nadal wears jackets like this without any shirt at all! I'm going to be wear stuff under it! Nice jacket if you are going to wear nothing but the jacket! Could work out fine if that was the case. Plus, Nadal probably wears this once and it is history for the jacket.

    From memory the blue polo is destined for wear at Indian Wells. I haven't seen anything yet regarding the orange polo. Fed is wearing a crew neck for Roland Garros so my guess is that he will be wearing a different color variant of the crew during the clay court swing prior to Roland Garros and because of that the orange polo won't be worn.

    Just my guess though based on last year. They have done things differently before.

    At US Open 2011 i believe there was socks with red swooshes for Roger (which I have) and they also sold socks with blue swooshes for Rafa, as well as the black and green socks he had. They don't sell them that often. There are also nicer nike socks that I have that I haven't seen in awhile (I got them from my local tennis shop), they are different from the ones TW sells.

    Also, I know we're not allowed to publicly ask for pick ups, per se, but are we allowed to make a thread for it? If anyone knows what premiers and limited release bandanas are there (if any) I will gladly paypal you the money right now :).

    They have atomic teal wristbands and orange wristbands. I assume teal for nadal and orange for fed. I was only able to get a pair of each since I couldn't carry much at all since I came with family. 10$ each and there were no pe socks. Just a bunch of running socks. I will post pictures later and I apologize for not being able to do pick-ups

    That is correct. I didn't see any other colors besides those two. They did have gray ones in the women's section, however. The small wristbands. Not the double-wide
