    Thank you! That means a lot to us. We actually made 4 iterations of the tote. It's funny, we had one where the handles were spaced 1cm more apart, and it looked awful. It's crazy how small adjustments completely changes the look of the tote. We're really happy with the design, quality and function. We hope our backers will be too! =)


    Awesome! What colors are you going to go for?


    Ha ha! I actually want to make one now, given your persistence. Why don't you send me a sketch to [email protected] ? Really curious to see what you have in mind, would fun just making a prototype even!

    Cool. It actually has a really cool "secret" pocket in the back. You'll see it in the video when we go live!

    Hey, you should see my cell phone! It makes Gordon Gecko's original one look like a Bic lighter! (Well, not really....)



    Pretty set on Navy. I love that color, and I think it's really great for smaller items such as wallets.

    I would love a Linjer coin purse as well; I definitely would buy that. Mine are just simple flap-over snap ones, very simple and convenient, but really beat up after 20-some years.



    Really? Wow. I'll email you some ideas. Something very slim, very simple. You guys are great. Even if this were not to happen it is great just corresponding with you.

    Navy tote looks promising... would probably be redundant for my needs considering the navy Margiela. Hmmm :eek:

    Thanks! The navy develops a bit of a gradient over time. It's not visible unless you really go up close, as it's a pretty dark color. Here is my navy soft briefcase after 6 months of use:

    :) Too bad!

    Hi Roman,

    I'm in for the navy tote. Does it come with hardboard for the bottom? I will be using it to carry big water bottle, tumbler and lunch box. So I need something strong to hold all those liquid.

    My bundle (mocha briefcase, navy portfolio & cognac cardholder) is due for delivery in March, can I change the mocha BC to a navy BC? I'm going navy all the way. Navy matches nothing but goes with everything (black/brown).

    Does the navy color fade over time or darkens? I will put the tote on the front passenger seat so it will be exposed to direct sunlight when I'm driving (approx 2 hours a day).

    Thanks

    So, where is this actually going live for the early bird? Kickstarter?

    Hi there,

    Awesome. It has a solid bottom. No issue carrying a big water bottle, tumbler and lunch box.
    We normally don't allow backers to change out colors this late prior to the shipping, but I'm sure we can work something out[​IMG] Just drop me a line at [email protected] and I'll take care of you.

    The navy color will darken, not fade.

    Great questions. Please keep them coming, it's helping Jenn and I develop the F.A.Q for our site!

    Cheers,

    Roman
    We actually did a last minute pivot, and went with Indiegogo. We'll be sending the link out to all our newsletter subscribers in 35 minutes when we go live:) We'll also make a post here with the URL:)

    Making the final touches as we speak.

    Sigh...35 whole minutes...so, so slow....

    If you only had one of those nice, big, fat 17" laptops to speed things up. :)

    No joke: In all sincerity I really respect the manner in which you answer questions; help customers in such an immediate and personal manner; scramble and resolve quickly; bootstrap the hell out of issues; and do it all so transparently, even through exhaustion.

    Kudos to both of you, really.
    Congratulations on another successful launch!

    Aw man and to think I actually set up a kickstarter account just for you guys! Happy that you're back to indiegogo though...i'm more familiar with the interface there, having backed a number of stuff there.

    Ok waiting for the link!
