Is the Western Flyer being repositioned as more of a business bag?
I have noticed a slight change in the way the Western Flyer is shown on the site today, with the new photos. New colours, all at the more sombre, business-like end of the TB colour spectrum. A photo of the WF in black in half profile, looking as slim as a laptop case. Another photo showing the Brain Cell and Freudian slip inserted into the back compartment. The narrative description of the bag hasn't changed, I don't think, but the change in visuals makes me wonder if the TriStar has taken so much of the convertible bag market that it makes more sense to reposition the Western Flyer as an overnight business bag for the one-bagging business traveller. Or perhaps it's just that everyone bought the bag in black or steel anyway!
I will still be taking a WF to Bhutan next year - the antithesis of a business overnight trip!
