    I'm not sure a new varsity will appear. It would depend on demand (and that means I'd need tons of people emailing me asking about them, not posting in the the thread - I've learned my lesson about that), because the money I make on them is not considerable enough to keep making them worth it. I have high labor costs that I can't really change.

    I might make a reissue or an update of my backpack - there are some minor tweaks I'd do. The only problem is that people weren't hot for the suede (which is half understandable - the purple was swag overload for many) but I don't really want to make an all-leather daypack. It's hard to make those things not look like a Wilson's leather $30 leather mall backpack.

    Maybe you could strengthen the straps that are connected to the main body. mine ripped at the strap once. However, I still love my olive green suede daypack. It's still my main bag that I use daily. will post evo pics soon.

    Yeah I am aware of that, I will need to make the next generation of bags smaller (so it doesn't appear that it can hold that much weight, I guess I have been out of college too long to have remembered putting 3 or 4 heavy texts in a bag at once [​IMG]) and then do something I've wanted to do with the inner construction. That strap breaking was a derivative of both parts.

    Yeah I sorta slept on the daypack and I really shouldn't have

    The grey suede with silver zips was awesome.

    my strap ripped, I got it repaired, and it's ripping again. And I don't carry anything heavier than a macbook in there.

    Not complaining, just fyi, dont think it was really a weight thing.

    it may have something to do with the pressure points at the straps. I don't use my daypack whenever I have to carry my macbook around, just in case. But still, the suede is just soft and supple. best and most functional toj purchase yet.

    Did Charly tell you that you can send that back to me? Because you can. [​IMG] I remember him asking me but I don't know if it went through. (I realize there's something else of yours at my house already)

    Drew,

    Any plan for gray leather yet? Particularly the moto? It's been several days since I asked. [​IMG]

    It's been almost 2 weeks since I put in the DR order, feels just like yesterday. So I should get it by this week in that sense. [​IMG]
