What Are Your Tom Bihn Bag Acquisition Strategies?
So I am starting this thread to see what people are planning to get next. Cause lets face it: once you have one Tom Bihn bag, you will have more Tom Bihn bags. It's right up there with sex and pistachio nuts: you can't stop at one.
Now the rule of thumb for this thread is what bags are you planning to buy, and what niche will they be used to fill for you. Now of course the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. In the Tom Bihn 'verse that means a new color combo or bag style is released and WHAM there go the plans as suddenly you have this preemptive acquisition event suddenly manifest itself. So, the unplanned acquisitions to the side (unless you plan for them as well), what are you planning to get for say your next three bags?
For myself, I have a Linen Medium Cafe Bag currently on pre-order. But in the interest of full disclosure, that was a gotta-have-that-bag event. Unplanned. Just had to have it. My next PLANNED bags are the Empire Builder and the Tristar. Depending on when funds are available, and what my travel plans at that time are like, will influence the order of acquisition. I am considering the Zephyr too, but it will likely be either the Zephyr OR the Empire Builder. It just dawned on me, that I will likely lean toward the Zephyr. Well, today anyway. (Who am I kidding; isn't it inevitable that I will eventually have both? :P )
I also want the Aeronaut, but am just not traveling enough at present to warrant bumping it up in the order. However, if the green version is released again... One thing I have learned here is if you like a color combo, buy it. It won't necessarily be around if you wait.
The Zephyr as a school textbook/class organizer, the Tristar for travel (at present mostly Florida, if at all) , and the MCB wil be a rotating EDC.
So, what's your bag plan? :)
When I win the lottery...
I am ordering one of everything in each color and fabric combination! Clearly, I have no strategy just a severe addiction!
