Hi all, Thanks for being part of this drop! We're working on all your orders. The shipping deadline is December 12, and we will post here if there are going to be any delays. We craft and ship all our products from our Chicago-area workshop, but Massdrop is responsible for purchasing and tracking the postage. If you have questions about tracking, arrival time-frame, etc. their team are the ones to contact. If once you receive your order, you have questions or issues, please contact us at service@allegorygoods.com. We have a lifetime, no questions asked guarantee on ALL our products. We want you to absolutely LOVE all the stuff we make, and we won't stop until that's the case. We'll be able to much more quickly address any of those issues or questions if you reach out directly to us at our service email (service@allegorygoods.com), as opposed to posting here on the boards or going through Massdrop customer service. With as many drops as we are fortunate to run through Massdrop it can become difficult for us to make sure to respond to every customer note on the boards. And, since it saves everyone some time, we're happy work with you directly so that Massdrop support team doesn't have to act as a go-between. We hope you love your new Allegory gear!
I think the pen wrap is appealing but very much dislike the marketing. The word 'leather' is ridiculous and annoying. Cured dead animal hide is cured dead animal hide.

I'm certainly not a fan of deceptive marketing, but I think people know what's behind the word leather. For what it's worth, I share your frustration about how we put up a veil that hides the animals in the supply chain. That's a big part of why we source our leather the way we do. Thanks for your thoughts. Chad
Well, mine arrived and it's beautiful. It is top quality leather and I'll buy more for sure.
Pen wrap arrived moments ago. I do not know about anyone else, but my pen wrap is not even sewn correctly. the pen wrap closest to the end is not even sewn down as if the method of stitching missed it. Glad I did not invest in the six pocket as this is definitely not the quality expected. I will have to resume carrying my precious fountain pens in my fabric wraps and nearly

$50.00 down the drain. Not only am I disappointed, this leaves a sour taste in my mouth for Massdrop since it was the conduit to this inferior pen wrap!!

I completely share your frustration here. I have no idea how this got out the door. I'm going to address this with my team immediately and personally assure that you have a well executed wrap in your hands ASAP. No need to worry about sending that back, I'll email you get your massdrop order ID and we'll send another by the end of the day.
This is not consistent with our quality expectation. Hopefully we can give you a smooth customer service experience to make up for this frustration. I'll be handling it personally.

UPDATE: Moments ago received my replacement 4 pen roll in chocolate. Can not wait to put my "babies" inside each slot. Not only after reaching out to Allegory did I received a prompt response, it was received from the founder and CEO. Quite impressive and refreshing to experience that level of quality in a company. A replacement pen roll was promised and received today. It is beautiful and all corners, etc, sewed and secure and ready for my much loved fountain pens. Chad Schumacher and Allegory stand by their commitment and the after sale care is impeccable in my opinion based on how quickly and satisfactorily this issue was handled. I would definitely give Allegory another sale. After all the name is fit for a poet. Definitely in my opinion, befitting indeed an Allegory. Thank you once again Mr. Schumacher and Allegory for being willing to make this transaction once again a pleasant one for me and my pens

Jumped on this drop last time for a 6 slot pen wrap and loved it so much I just ordered a second one from this drop for my drafting pencils.
I cannot speak highly enough of Allegory Leather as a company, their products, or their people. One of my favorite two vendors for leather goods. I would buy anything of theirs that caught my eye without any reservations regarding quality or durability.

Thanks so much for the kind words! You're the best!
I just joined the drop, this looks like an awesome piece of leather (still very happy with my Allegory coin purses!) I only wonder, why on earth is the shipping 21,50 to Europe? Is there nothing possible to get this lower? (Especially if taxes are added, which often add another 20+ Euros to the purchase). Happy to hear any ideas!
hubnerfalk
It is the same way if shipped from Europe to U.S.A. The only way is if you know someone in the U.S.A. and they agree to send it to you in Europe. Otherwise, there is really no remedy around the additional cost for it to be shipped to you in Europe.
Is there any update from the last drop? I believe it said they would ship around October 31st.
I should add that my wrap accommodates my Montblanc 149 & 146 as well as my small Pelikan 200's.
I bought the six pen roll the last time they came up. I wasn't sure how much i would use it, but bought it on a hunch. It turned out to be a great purchase. I keep my inked up pens in it and use it everyday. Theses pen rolls are extremely well made. They are rugged on the outside and gentle to your pens on the inside. I use it at home, and when i go out, put it in my backpack and i know the tough leather outside will keep my pens safe on the inside. my wrap is so well made, I have no doubt it will last for many years to come. It just gets softer and better the more you use it. I got the six pen wrap since the price difference was not that great and i had the feeling that I would grow into it. Turned out to be the case. It works just as well for two pens or the full six pens. I'm glad i didnt' spend a lot of money on a smaller wrap since this one does everything I need. Buy one of these in the size that suits your needs, you won't regret it.

Any shipping to Canada on this? The drop is absent of shipping costs......
I really really like this wrap,I just gotta scramble to get the money for it. Looks like a great product but what really attracted me to it was it's unique physique of the casing (I like standing out) and I also love the leather.

I received mine (well, the one I ordered) a few days ago. It's really beautiful and well made, my girlfriend is going to love it.
It feels great brand new, but I'm sure once the leather is worn a little it'll feel even nicer and it feels durable enough to last a lifetime like they claim it should.
Awesome work Allegory.

How deep are the pen pockets roughly?
Just wondering if my shorter pens would get lost down the bottom of it.

Thanks @sallen. Yep! We are always happy to modify our designs to best fit our customers' specific carries. Feel free to shoot me a message at jessica@allegorygoods.com if you like @LineNoise. The pockets on the standard 4-sot and 6-slot wrap though are 4.25 inches deep.

Cheers, thanks guys.
Another illustration. How much a bag, that would be way larger package, costs significantly less to ship?

Finally this is back!!! But as soon as I saw $21.25 shipping cost, my enthusiasm drowned.

Was there any luck in finding a more affordable shipping option? I'm from Australia and considering joining the drop but I'm getting the same $21 shipping charge..which is what's making me hesitate.

Thanks again for joining this drop! Before we can place the order with the vendor for the Allegory Leather Pen Wrap - Massdrop Exclusive, we need each group member to submit what customized engravement they would prefer.
A google form has been provided below for this purpose. Group members will have until Monday (9/19) at 5pm to fill it out. Members who are not interested in a customized engravement don't have to fill out the form and will receive a non-engraved pen wrap.

Allegory let me pick mine up in Chicago at a book fair they were exhibiting at. Great customer service. Great craftsmanship. Very pleased with my roll. Thank you!
Any mention of top grain, or full grain leather. If that is not mentioned, than it is probably not so top quality leather.

If you didn't have a chance already - check out the video review. He comments quite a bit about the feel and finish of the leather.
Hi Chad, really appreciate the response. Love it when manufacturers are open and provide info, and interact with us buyers.
$21,75 Shipping! Obviously a company not looking for international customers.

Not to be contrary, but this drop has ran several times now, each of which with substantial quantities. We noticed this one didn't have quite as many people and since nothing has changed we can only assume that it is because hundreds of folks in the massdrop community already have one. We have a few new products in the works so we'll likely hold off several months before making this one available again.
That said - I completely understand your frustration with the shipping cost. It stinks to see something you like and then have logistics make it seem infeasible. For what it's worth, I know that Massdrop ads only very minor handling fees to the shipping on these items, so the numbers you are seeing are very close to the actual costs imposed by the shipping companies. Something that is largely out of the control of Massdrop or Allegory. We love working with international customers and we'll continue looking for more cost effective shipping options to make this work better. Hopefully we can come up with a strategy that makes it easier for international buyers before this product is dropped again.
Cheers! Chad

Thank you for taking the time to reply. Please do not think I am in anyway denigrating you product. Quite the contrary as I like your product a lot. I do however believe there is a correlation between volume sold and international postage. Compare your costs to the similar product selling now on this site were the p&p is $6.25. I buy regularly from Massdrop and many of those items have appeared multiple times previously and since. These items sell biggish quantities every time. Could the p&p play a contributing part? I think so. Anyway, bottom line is that I am really at a loss as to see how your product costs more than 3 times that of a similar product to post to Australia. Sadly you have lost at least 1 international sale.
As an aside, I would be genuinely interested to know how p&p is calculated at Massdrop.
I'm considering joining the newest Allegory Pen Wrap drop. Can anyone clarify if the pen slots are sized for large/over-sized pens. Thanks

They can accommodate some pretty large pens. check the video review at the bottom of the page for some examples.
