    Parental Unit Pre-order!

    Hi friends! We're gearing up for our first pre-order of 2023- a return of the Parental Unit! We've got a lot of colors being offered, in a mix of fabric combinations, including three brand new Cerylon colors being introduced!

    This pre-order, and all future pre-orders are going to work a little differently than they have in the past. Over the last several months we've been working hard to implement a new shipping and inventory system that is going to improve our workflow tremendously, but there are a few limitations in some areas. One of them is how we manage our pre-order system. The biggest change is that pre-order items will need to be ordered on their own, separately from any in-stock items you're after- those will need to be in separate orders. Additionally, you won't be able to add in-stock items to pre-orders that are placed. At the end of the pre-order period, we'll send a notification that orders are about to ship and at that time additional orders can be placed to be combined with the pre-ordered items. We've outlined all the changes to the pre-orders in the FAQ.

    We love doing these pre-orders, and it was important to us to still be able to offer them! And we're excited for the return of the Parental Unit too! If you have questions, feel free to [email protected] or drop a note here and we'll check in on this thread to answer any questions

    Moss!!!
    Dusk!!!

    Sooooooooo happy!

    (Marigold too, can't be neglected, but we've had Solaris, so not quite as geeky happy)

    Yay!

        The NFTD rides again! In a two-tone reissue. Old is new again.

        LOVE the addition of a blue-purple liner fabric that can fill the void left by Dawn 210d. Variety is good.

        Also looks like the label was redesigned and simplified. New is good.

        All good things!

            NFTD!!! The one that got away for me.

            And Dusk looks great. Nice that you're keeping options for those of us who prefer cool tones. I predict Marigold will become a favorite with everyone else.

              NFTD! I sourced one on fleabay as a Christmas gift for a friend. Thrilled that it might soon be back.

                  Can't wait to see what two-tone versions you all came up with!

                    The NFTD is the one bag I regretted not getting before it was retired. Glad to see it's making a comeback.

                      I had past opportunities to get a PU, but have kind of regretted not getting one. There are some very tempting color ways being offered so I think I'll jump on it. I have a NFTD in Navy/Iberian and while it's not used often, it does make a great weekend bag. Thank you to the TB Crew for bringing back these retired bags!

                        Going to quote the new updated Pre-Order FAQ to help ensure folks see this change, which Mike V stated in the first post of this thread. With their new software system/whatevs, it changes when/how you can have In Stock items ship with Pre-Orders.



                        "We're moving to a new inventory and shipping system and with this new system comes with some limitations we have to work within.

                        One of these is that we aren't able to hold additional items with this pre-order.

                        If you want to add any items to your order past the items that are offered on the pre-order page, we suggest waiting until you receive our email letting you know that your pre-order is ready to ship and then placing an order for any additional items, from there we'll be able to combine those orders and ship them."

                          A Dawn-like color in Cerylon looks amazing! So exciting!

                          I appreciate the thorough explanation of the changes to the pre-order process. I hope the new inventory management system works well!

                              If it's not too late, I'd love to see an option for the Night Walk that was used in a previous iteration of the PU! Huge thanks for bringing these back either way
