“I put a (redesigned) Smart Alec on my wish list, assuring my beloved it was just fine that it was a backordered color combination (for shipping in January). She apparently went ahead and ordered it, got a shipping notification, and received it in Seattle just one hour before we left for the airport for our Christmas in Minnesota! The black/black/wasabi combination still shows as backordered, so you folks at the Tom Bihn factory accomplished a Christmas miracle! So fun and awesome. I don’t know how I got so lucky as to actually have the bag in hand and get to wear it, but I appreciate it SO MUCH!!! Yay for the great surprise!!”
