    Pink/Cocoa is a hot combo right now. I don't know if that would be too many cocoa choices, though.

    Pink and steel might might a nice combo - esp. as the inside of the bag is gray. Plum and olive might be a nice combo (is that already a combination? I can't remember). It doesn't look like there's a swatch of sage in your link but I don't think you can go wrong with black and sage. Sage and crimson might work together too but it's hard to say without seeing s swatch. Same for sage and steel.

    *cocoa / storm *
    navy / storm
    plum / navy
    cocoa / black

    old faves:
    navy / cocoa (my tote is this color & i love it)
    cocoa / steel
    steel / sapphire
    sapphire / olive
    crimson / navy
    steel / navy (not used before, but similar to some others)

    not for me, but I think they look good:
    cocoa / cayenne
    black / cayanne
    olive / navy

    since the 80's seem to be back (egad!):
    pink / navy
    pink / plum

    I agree that the cocoa/storm would look good. I like the combinations with navy (including plum/navy), and think that either black or cocoa/cayenne would work.

    These are great suggestions! Keep them coming!

    It'll be hard to narrow down just a couple to try in this batch.

    I love my sapphire. I like bright colors- sapphire and cayenne would be colors I'd buy.

    Storm combination

    I think the new Storm colour is incredible, but I would like to see it paired with something darker than Sapphire.

    Rather, I think that Storm/Navy would look great together. I would definitely buy a Swift in that colour, and would love to see the storm colour or even the storm/ navy combo trickle down into other bags (like the new Synapse, or even the mini cafe bag).

    Thanks!

    Pink/storm or Pink/cocoa would definitely make me spend some more money!

    I saw a Sapphire/Black Swift listed one morning and hopped the next bus to Tom Bihn. Bought it straightaway, and it hadn't even made it out of the shop yet. The only one I've ever seen, and lots of people ask me where I got it.

    Maybe you could make some more???

    PLEASE make more dyneema/clear or solid dyneema mini/small/medium pouches! I like both the blue dyneema and the gray - I'm not really picky...

    Mine is black/sapphire. Isn't that one of the regular options?
    It is a lovely color combo.
