    tom bihn "messenger bag" on ebay

    hi folks,

    i came across this tom bihn messenger bag on ebay.

    the seller says that it is a "medium" size, but the 12" x 13" dimensions sound like it would be about the size of a large cafe bag. the differences is that the large cafe bag has organizer pockets that this messenger bag does not have.

    tom, darcy,

    do you know about when this bag may have been made?

    thanks!

    "if i understand correctly, black bag was actually the name of tom's company before he started operating under his own name."

    Maverick -- you're right, and I even knew that, but let it slip from my brain. The LGD is the bag I was looking at when I said that Now, I think that "Black Bag" *would* be a good name for a bag, though, so perhaps it could one day come full circle, and Tom Bihn, maker of Tom Bihn bags and formerly principal of Black Bag, could make a black Tom Bihn Black Bag.

    vintage 1990's black bag

    this black bag daypack is one that, per darcy, tom himself sewed from start to finish.

    it appeared for sale on ebay in january, 2009.
