      I'd change this to:
      • The TB bag you have works great and looks new but you want to replace it just to get a better color.


      I'd also add to the list:
      • You actually subscribe to the Twitter feed

        You know you're a loyal Tom Bihn customer when you start thinking about buying a netbook just so you can justify getting the new netbook Ristretto.

          or you decide to work from home that day because you know the package is coming...

            ....you realize that a small organizer pouch is the perfect size to divide items up in your self-made "authentic" renaissance pouch. (but size mini is too small to be as useful in it)

                You buy some bags you may infrequently or possibly never use, just to fill out the line.

                You're grateful that you don't like messenger bags, which would open up another can of worms.

                You're glad that, as a rule, you buy only black bags, so you're not tempted to get multiples. Rules are good!

                    Yes, but I kept telling myself that I couldn't order all 4 versions of the Synapse that I was considering.

                      I bought almost the whole line of Punch products.
                      I also bought matching capris after receiving the package because my other pink clothes match Pink or Plum better than Punch.

                      It is now too cold to wear capris and three quarter sleeves tops, so I will wear my Punch things next summer.


                      I also pointed out, in another post, how difficult it was to resist buying the Imago in Navy/Storm/Sapphire. I just saw the brand new Indigo/Plum/Steel and resisting that color is though as well.

                      My body, however is spoiled with portrait style bags and won't allow me to carry landscape bags for long period without balking.

                      So no Imago for me!

                            We need a picture of you wearing the Punch Ristretto, you know a model picture Maverick style. :)

                            The marvelous Golden Gate picture gave you away as a great photographer, so
                            now, we know you can be a model too. :)

                            Or you can choose to be a lady of mystery but take lots and lots of pictures of the Bags. :)

                                the key is to not "have your picture taken." the best pictures are captured when the party being photographed doesn't know that they are being photographed.

                                perhaps darcy may be of some assistance... :D
