    New Color idea

    I recently ordered an Ego and due to shipping and holiday weekend issues (mostly of my own doing) I wont be recieving it till tomorrow... however I did notice one thing when I was looking for "the perfect bag"

    One color that seems oddly left out of the available fabrics is a nice Burnt Orange. Its a really classy color and I was surpised to see not only no Burn Orange, but nothing even resembling an orange.

    I can just see an Ego being Steel/Burnt Orange.

    Anyone else have a color they wish they could find on a bag?

    YES. Wholeheartedly agree on the orange. More bright colors would be awesome.

    We've always wanted to add Orange! It's just been a question of finding the right orange. There are a lot of oranges out there, but a lot of them are...ahem...pretty bright.

    Here's an idea: can all of you fans of orange post swatches of your ideal color of orange?

    +1 on the color above ^^^

    That's just what I was thinking of when burnt orange was brought up. I could definatly see my Super Ego in Black/Burnt Orange/Steel - with a reflective strip, and buckle. Or just a burnt orange strip for my Black/Steel/Wasabi.

    A Cafe Bag in Cocoa and Burnt Orange would be a kewl color combo too.

    The custom-for-us orange that Tom is working on is very similar to the orange that Gus posted a picture of.

    Here's the shade Tom is working on:

    Great idea to use orange. I've wanted to suggest this for a while. Before going with the burnt orange please consider this image.

    Sorry for the size. Notice the orange in the lower half of this Cessna's cabin. Normally finding anything dropped while flying is difficult (most cockpits are black). However THIS color orange would make floor visibility much easier.

    Thanks.

    As long as Tom is working on "custom for Tom Bihn" colors, why not custom pinks and purples and how about bringing back the gorgeous periwinkle fabric that is in the limited edition pouches, the fabric is up to you.

    Looks more like gold to me! Which I'm all for as another new color!

    Any thoughts on when this orange fabric might make an appearance? I'm definitely into it. I'd love a cocoa/orange cafe bag.

    Not too soon since it would be a custom color, but it is on the horizon!
