    It always pays to ask. Happy that you have a plum-wasabi Ristretto coming your way. My Ristretto is Plum/Wasabi (and I'll ignore the aspersions cast on the Cocoa/Olive color combination of my Ristretto for iPad).

    Awesome--order is in!!

    As usual, I will review once I've given the bag a decent test-drive.

    Hi Flitcraft!

    There are currently no plans for a return of the Plum/Wasabi option for the Ristretto. Though, it does look like there is one last Plum/Wasabi Ristretto in the showroom . If you would like it, feel free to place an order for any color option in the drop down and put into the comments field during checkout "Hi Casey! Please ship the Plum/Wasabi from the showroom ."

    If you have any further questions please feel free to email me at [email protected] .

    It's your lucky day. Casey checked and we have one Plum/Wasabi Ristretto left in our Seattle store. It's being held for you, flitcraft - place an order for any other color but in the comments box note that you want the Plum/Wasabi.

    Is the Ristretto in Plum/wasabi a dodo now?

    Or perhaps I should say, a passenger pigeon, to avoid the negative connotation regarding dodos. What I mean is, is it gone for good or merely gone for now? I didn't think I would have any use for a Ristretto--not a Mac person--so I didn't pay much attention to the Ristretto, but I just bought a Toshiba Portege R-705, which just happens to be exactly the size of the Mac's for which the Ristretto was designed.

    So, here I am in the market for a Ristretto. I know, ridiculous, given all of the bags I already have--and the computer does fit into my Imago in a neoprene sleeve, but it's a tight fit and I find it annoying getting it in and out. It also fits in my Zephyr, but I mainly use that when I need a major briefcase, so that one sits in my closet most days. The Ristretto looks absolutely perfect--sleek, purpose-built, lightweight, and hip. Only thing is, I really, really wanted it in the plum-wasabi combo. Olive and cocoa are fine but a bit drab, I already have steel in my beloved medium cafe bag, and black is, well, black.

    I know, I know, you snooze you lose on bag color combos. But before I pull the trigger on a second-best option, I thought I'd inquire about whether there was a possibility that the plum-wasabi combo would make a phoenix-like rise. Or, as I suggested, is it a dodo, consigned to the hall of extinct Tom Bihn bags...
