    Suit / dress shirt options

    Originally posted by MtnMan View Post

    1: As mentioned in a previous thread and in a Maverick video, I would like to see the rumored Tom Bihn Garment Sleeve. In short, I would like an elegant, high-quality way to carry a full suit with sport coat in an Aeronaut or Tri-Star without having to rely on aftermarket accessories from other companies.


    7: Also: I wonder if Tom Bihn could design a carry-on-capable suit travel bag to directly compete with the Patagonia MLC Burrito.

    I travel with a sportcoat or suit and dress shirts. The Eagle Creek folders are so darn heavy, and really don't work with a suit. I've tried bundle packing, and that doesn't really do well.

    Would love to see some options that would work with other bags, like Tri-Star and larger.

    Hey! That was supposed to be a surprise! We've thought of doing this for a while, but there are so many "big" bags in development and the factory is so busy making current styles that we haven't yet had time to create Padded Pouches with color binding (it would be 500d Cordura colors -- Wasabi, Cayenne) but maybe soon!

    Thanks!

    I had another thought, if the straps matched up to the binding, then it would be easy to fish out as well.

    Aeronaut exterior color request: Kelly or Conifer! And if those colors aren't available, try Brown / Olive. (Solar interior)

    Honestly, I'd love to see some new colors for the Imago.

    I keep hovering back and forth between ordering the Olive/Cork/Steel, waiting for Black/Black/Steel to come back or go with something like Steel/Cork/Wasabi. However, I'm not sure how keen I am on the Cork, to be honest. I'd love to see something such as Black/Black/Olive or Black/Indigo's replacement/Steel to go with my Swift. I think for now I might just get a Cache and use it with my Swift until I decide on pulling the trigger on the Imago.

    Edit: Or, the point might be moot anyhow, because I'm this close to pulling the trigger on a Synpase rather than a messenger-style bag. ^_~

    I just thought of something to color code the Padded Pouches, different Color Key Straps and the Luggage Tag, not only in its current size but in half and quarter size.

    The back of the quarter size Luggage/Pouch Tag could show the logo plane and/or the car sticker design.

    The Luggage Tag is made of strong material and can be labeled in the back.


    It would come really handy for the blogger with so many phones and for everybody else carrying essential but fragile electronic.

    Black counts as another color!!! I appreciate the heads up AND the choice!

    Thank you!

    I agree. I've some charcoal and some black, and black is definitely my choice too. Also, I've two Ristrettos, one with a charcoal 'cache' and the other in black. Again I like the black much better.

    I would love to see a cross between the Aeronaut and Tri-star, or really, just a Tri-star that's a little larger. I travel for business and usually bundle-pack a suit. The Tri-star is a little small for my liking, but I prefer its layout to the Aeronaut.
