  2. Wow, thanks for posting - I'm sorry to hear they're closing down. Their bags are well-made of unusual leather.
  3. I hate to hear that. I really liked some of their bags.
  4. If one was to order, how would they go about doing that?
  5. There were no ordering instructions included with the email, however I found this on the Thickskin website......

  6. Wow, thanks for posting.

    bagachondriac -
    do you have a Thickskin bag?

    Have always liked the I take the plunge?
  7. No...I never bought one although I don't know why as I like some of their styles.
  8. I can't find a picture of the computer bag. I'm sure I'm just overlooking it but can someone post a picture of it? TIA!
  9. Hi Melly,
    The email that I received contained no pictures, however I have found what I believe to be the computer least I hope so.

    Created for Tommy Lee (who's spinning now) this multi-funk-tional bag holds just about everything: computer (with padding to accommodate size), ipod, cell, PDA, power cord, and headphones. Sturdy strap carries up to 300 pounds. Alloy clips. Fierce!

  10. Okay folks, I hate to be a contrarian, but my word, it has to be a word of faith because we're paying up front, the bags will be produced and alas, if anything goes awry, we have no recourse?
    Anyone else have these thoughts?
  11. I was just thinking about that. :sad: I would really like to order that computer bag for my boyfriend's birthday but $400 is a lot of money to lose if something goes wrong.
  12. I wanted to check out their tiger pendant and can't find it!

    And I do agree about investing lots of cash in a bag with no escape route... or even "follow through" gaurantee is risky!
  13. Good point! (as I write out my check) No seriously, I guess we put blind faith into their reputation. So now we just need to find a tpf-er that has a Thickskin bag.....
  14. asark--I couldn't find the pendant either..
