    Don't retire Dawn please!!!

    Dear Tom:

    Don't retire Dawn, please!!! It's gorgeous. I wish it came in 525 ballistic.

    Also, I love Canyon.

    Thanks!

    I second @BWeaves. Dawn, Mars Red, and Canyon are my favorite new ballistic colors. Maybe Tom will reconsider retiring them so soon? Or perhaps he could find similar colors in the 525 version. Pretty please? *^^*

    Could you at least do a few more runs of products in Dawn so I might have a chance of getting the Travel Cubelet before they sell out??? Pretty please???

    Is Mars Red on the retireing list too? I thought it was Dawn and Canyon?

    The thing is: retireing something is always painfull for some. But than it makes space for new things so that is good. And my experiance in the past years with Tom Bihn is there will always be another wonderful colour around the corner that makes up for the ones that have to go.

    Mars Red isn't on the retiring list. Sorry about the confusion.

    I do love those colors but you're right. Retiring them means discovering new colors (and designs) I might love even more. Smilie That's the cool thing about Tom's bags. I can't wait to see what the next debut will bring!

    I don't mind retiring a color after a long run, but Dawn and Canyon just came out.

    I hear you - my two favorites from the new batch of colors are Canyon and Dawn ... C'est la vie !!! Smilie

    As they say ... the only constant is change ... and if it allows TB to create more great designs, I am ok with it ... briefcase ... briefcase ...

    Also, just think of all the possible new colors that could come out next ... maybe one even closer to your favorite !!


    Cheers!

    Hopefully they ordered enough of Dawn & Canyon to make a range of things for a bit of time. There have already been multiple waves of 'in production' of several items as far as I can tell.
    I'm new here, but I read some old forum posts that sounded like people got to choose a new favorite of some previous color batches (hello Island), so maybe that could happen here too.
    Dawn is great...but a repeat shout out to Canyon... it is a lovely foil to the Mars Red colour (which is way nicer/richer in person that it shows in photos).
    I had purchased a Mars Red Cubelet to use for meds/first aid and I'm very very pleased with the colour - it is not too loud.... I liked it enough to pick up the Travel Cubelet in Mars Red even though I don't normally think of myself as a 'red' person and I already have a TC in Dawn.

    I would kill for larger bags with Canyon as an exterior color.

    Well... I wouldn't, obviously, because that would be taking one's fabric color obsession a bit too far, but you know what I mean.

    I was surprised that Dawn was retiring. The reason being that ‘blues’ are not particularly well covered in the standard colour options. It took a long time for Island to make an appearance as an internal colour and dawn felt like a nod in the ‘blue’ direction in the new fabric options. Shame really

    I also like that it's a blue-ish neutral. Such a pretty color. I'm tempted to get a Travel Cubelet in that color because I'm worried about missing out.
    If they did the Pop Tote in Dawn, I would be all over that.

    Me too. I'm struggling with the colours of the pop tote. It is such a great seeming bag but the colours don't grab me, for the cost of it converted into Au$ and shipped. But I could really use the bag for upcoming trips away...

    In Dawn, I would be completely converted!

    Some good news for those who appreciate Dawn: we have a decent supply of Dawn fabric, so it won't be going away that soon. No need to rush. (I'm sensing there's a joke I could make about Dawn riding into the sunset or Dawn becoming Dusk or something, but it's not coming to me....)
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    "It's going to a be a pretty dark day when there's no more Dawn."

    (Ok, so I suck at bad puns, anyone else want to make a run at it?)
