Hi all, Thanks for being part of this drop! We're working on all your orders. The shipping deadline is December 13, 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. Also, you may receive your order in two separate packages if you ordered any add-ons like a notebook. Massdrop ships those add-ons directly from their warehouse.  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!
@AllegoryGoods the photos 15, 16, 17 (just before the close-up of stitches) all show the stitching on the left edge that doesn’t look parallel. Is that by design? Also, do you have a photo of the padfolio “fully loaded”? It would help me visualize how it looks IRL.
MrSharkbait
If I understand you correctly it's just the way the fold in the binding is sitting in the photo. If you lay it flat the two stitches are paralell and the binding is the same width from top to bottom.
Is there a version/option for one of these without the outside zippered pocked on the flap with the sand buttons?
AlephNull
We don't currently have that option. BUT....we are working on expanding our entire padfolio/portfolio collection to include a bunch of new options, including the option you want. Stay tuned via our email list. We'll be releasing them all this holiday season via Kickstarter, hopefully available on Massdrop sometime early next year.
Another question: would it be possible to get the dimensions of both sizes (A4 and legal?)
nzimm
Here are the specs. I will also see if the Massdrop team can add them to the specs section of the drop. A4 Padfolio - 10'' wide and 12.25'' tall, the cut-out on the interior for a tablet (like your iPad or others) is 11.45'' tall. Legal Padfolio - 10'' wide and 15.25'' tall, the cut-out on the interior for a tablet (like your iPad or others) is 14.45'' tall.
AllegoryGoods
thanks!
Does the pen pocket on the inside get in the way of the flap snapping shut, or cause a noticeable bulge?
bibb
We haven't personally experienced, or heard feedback from any customers, about the pens on the inside causing an issue with closure or bulging.
AllegoryGoods
Thank you for the reply.
Does anyone know the thread color used in all the photos of the Saddle color padfolio? I assume cream?
lassetjus
The Saddle leather color padfolio is sewn with matching saddle stitching. The cream is much more of a contrast with even the saddle leather.
AllegoryGoods
Thanks for the answer.. Just in time for me to edit my order from cream to saddle
Does anyone know if the tablet pocket will fit the just-announced new ipad pro 12"? The dimensions of the that ipad are 11.04' x 8.46'. I imagine if not in the regular version it would fit in the legal size?
nzimm
I also want to know this before I pick this up.
nzimm
Apologies for my delay in responding here. The A4 size may just barely fit the new ipad pro. The cut-out for the tablet pocket is 11.45''. It will depend on how thick the new ipad is. To be 100% safe, our new legal size will definitely accommodate it.
Is there an A5 version available?
Tali
We're working on one! Stay tuned!
OMG! They are making it in a legal size now?!? Gotta find a way to justify buying another one 🤔
298 requests. @AllegoryGoods please bring this back!
Please please drop this. "63 users have requested". Isn't that enough to drop it?
Please drop again! I misse out because i just purchased one on my own and need another now
Hi, I love this folio! Can you tell me if the large size iPad Pro would fit in that tablet sleeve. I doubt it, but I wanted to check. Thanks
Hello @AllegoryGoods,
I think we are ready for this drop to be active again.
Best,
G.
Gizreel
Awww Yeah!!
missed out on this because of life, heres hoping it drops again soon
@AllegoryGoods is there anywhere that I can keep loose leaf a4 copy paper? Perhaps the tablet pocket or the pocket for the writing pad
Bananamcfly
The flap that lays on top of the tablet sleeve (left side) is designed for papers just like that.
@AllegoryGoods I know we'd asked before, but I hadn't heard anything- any progress on making one large enough for a Surface Pro ( Width 11.5 in x Height 7.9 in x Depth 0.3 in)? I have one I'm using now (A Knomo Knomad Organizer) but I'd like an upgrade to leather, and this looks like the perfect product... other than the size. I notice that this time around it says tablet rather than iPad, but I can't tell if there has been a change and the Surface Pro 4 will fit.
Any thoughts?

I never got a definitive answer other than the above, unfortunately. I didn't get in on the drop either, so I'm afraid I can't personally verify. But I do know that @AllegoryGoods is very good about customer satisfaction, so I know that they will make it right if it happens not to work out for you.
ChuckDee
Thank you very much for the reply! I appreciate the quick response.
@AllegoryGoods do we have an option on this drop to get the pen slots on the inside?
isandie
I believe so. I will ping massdrop to confirm.
If we can't get it added then you can just email your preference to service@allegorygoods.com along with your massdrop order info and we'll track it on our end.
Thanks! - Chad
How big of a tablet can this hold?

No, the Rhodia is not included in the drop, that's just on their website.
Vortaku
The opening is 12 inches wide, so it depends on the thickness of your tablet. Hope this helps!
- Chad
Is it possible this drop to get the pen pockets on the inside?
Can’t wait for this drop to come back...
Gizreel
arn't you the lucky one?!
Sterenke
Indeed! Hopefully there’s an option to have the pen pockets on the inside...
I love this thing. I use it all day. I wish the stitching were better, though. I keep having stitches fraying out, and I’ve only had the thing for a few months.
Its still great, I’m just not looking forw to having to find someone to fix it when it breaks.
manchicken
Good news!
1. The frayed stitches are likely from our triple backtacking process. It adds longevity by providing a stronger anchor where stitches start and stop. But the extra thread does pull sometimes. This shouldn't escalate to the stitch coming undone though.
2. In the rare case that a stitch does come loose, our lifetime guarantee will kick in and we'll repair it for you!
- Chad
AllegoryGoods
This is actually in the stretchy fabric that is fraying, not the stitching. Please see attached.

Dear @AllegoryGoods team, I joined the most recent drop, and would like to have the pen pockets placed on the inside. Hopefully not too late if I read the official shipping date? Appreciated if you let me know it this is still possible, many thanks!

Apologies, but we don't check these boards in between drops because we don't receive notifications of posts. This is why I've advised folks to message us via service@allegorygoods.com with order notes. Did we get this fixed for you? If not let's get yours sent back in so we can install the appropriate flap.
- Chad
AllegoryGoods
Hi Chad, thanks for the reply. It didn't work out unfortunately, but hoenstly shipping costs and taxes were expensive enough, so I don't intend to send it back and spend even more. Thanks anyway. Best, Falk
@AllegoryGoods I joined the most recent drop. Can you make the pen pockets on the inside for me?

It says on the description it fits an A5 pad, but I think you mean A4. Can @AllegoryGoods confirm? TIA.
CEHL
It looks like you answered this question 14 weeks ago, actually. But in case you're wondering why you keep getting it, check the description first paragraph and specs bullet list. :)
I have absolutely no need for this, but I want it so badly. Mass Drop is killing me this post-Christmas.
Just a question: on the Allegory website the Padfolio is now available for 95,- - including a Rhodia A4 notebook. This is not included in the drop here I believe? Maybe cancel the drop and order directly via Allegory?
hubnerfalk
I had also considered that option. However shipping to Canada is substantially more expensive from their website, also there's no engraving/thread option AFAIK.
ZiggyDeath
They custom engrave anything.
People who requested the pen pockets to be place in the interior seem to have been pleased with the result. Would it be possible to offer that option again on this drop?
d111
@d111, We'll contact Massdrop and see if we can get that added for the next drop. For this drop though, if you guys want the pens on the inside of the flap, just shoot us a message when the drop closes with your order information and we'll make it that way for you.
AllegoryGoods
Please put my pen pockets inside the flap. Thanks!
Just in again to state the request for a Surface Pro 4 version of this...
rec'd mine. I definitely enjoy it but I dont know how to feel about the two slits where the pad goes, not sure if that was a necessary thing or if it was a style thing. Also I have noticed that the thread is already pulling and getting a little loose (ie. some of the stitches are fraying, etc). I think the folio is well designed but, if i had to do it again i would have asked a lot more questions about the thread that is supposed to keep it together as well as to see pictures of the item without the Pad in in. It is a high quality piece so probably would have purchased it albeit at a different amount
AlexMares50
Alex - The thread we use is a synthetic blend, similar to what is used to make boat sails. If there are a couple spots where thread is pulling it may be where we back-tacked. This is a process where a stitch is repeated in the same spot to lock the stitch in. We do this more extensively than many manufacturers because it ensures longevity, but this can result in a little extra thread in those spots. If that's the case, you can feel free to trim it, and it is unlikely to continue to pull. If there is a more serious issue it will be covered by our guarantee and we'd be happy to take a look to see what is going on. Shoot us a message at service@allegorygoods.com if you'd like to continue to the conversation.

AllegoryGoods
thanks for the reply. I will trim them. If anything comes up i am glad you guys stand by your product. Cheers
