    Cafe Bag

    After already investing in an S19 and a Side Kick, along with a Spiff Kit and Snake charmer of of course a couple of pouches and key straps, Iíve got my eyes on a Cafe Bag.

    However, non of the colours are calling me.

    Iíd love an aubergine/NWS halcyon combo.

    Anyone know if aubergine is ever likely to be an option in the smaller bags?

    Thanks

    TB is introducing a 525 ballistic aubergine, basically now, so I would think the chance is high that it will show up in the smaller bags... Aubergine/Wasabi seems to be the most common combo however.

    EDIT: I'm sure they'll eventually make Aubergine/NWSky, it just may not be the first combo out the door...

    Thereís a makers bag in Aubergine/NWS so I will remain hopeful

    I didn't like Wasabi at first, but I took a chance and bought a Co-Pilot in Nordic Halcyon that came with a Wasabi interior. Now it's probably my favorite interior color, along with Island.

    Wasabi is my least favorite Halcyon color on its own, but my current bags have UV interior and Wasabi stuff sacks are easy to find against UV, so I do use it.

    I love Wasabi as an interior or accessory colour. It's bright and light, and easy to find items. My Wasabi Large Shopping Bag is used all the time and, in my opinion, looks great. Some smaller bags in Aubergine 525/Wasabi would be tempting for me.

    In case you haven't already seen, @daisy_belle88, the SCB in Aubergine/Cloud (similar to NWS, minus the grid) is now in production: https://www.tombihn.com/products/sma...12881483169855

    +1 - I also don't care for Wasabi (the color), except for key-straps. I love wasabi as a condiment

    I don't like wasabi at all. I tried a Pilot with a wasabi interior and ended up selling the bag because of it. In one of the threads someone mentioned that it's the color of pollen, which explains why I don't like it. Every Spring when everything in the Southeast is covered in a wasabi green haze of pollen I'm miserable because of allergies.

    The condiment wasabi is very enjoyable.

    But that always reminds me of Mater, who tried too much wasabi and exclaimed, "The pistachio ice cream has turned!"

    I'm in the love Wasabi camp, too! (both the food and the color lol) I like the way it pairs with Nordic.

    I dislike wasabi intensely. I think in a blue/wasabi mix I could be swayed, but it's not appealing to me. And wasabi is second only in my dislike to NWS.

    I'd love it if it was more green (sitka <3<3<3) or more sunny yellow (solar...how I miss you).
    Aubergine/steel MB, Aubergine/wasabi pilot , Aubergine/island SE, Aubergine/NWS Lswift, Black/fjord Sswift, Alphaviolet/NWS S25, Alphaviolet/viridian SK, Black/UV S19...and buying more! Aubergine and Alphaviolet lover!!!
