Stock Level regardless of variants

hello! New to shopify and working on my store as we speak, but I got a question. Is there a product stock level option regardless of variants? Basically I'm looking to take pre-orders on shirts, and I only want to take a certain amount of pre-orders... 50 for example. During this pre-order process, I want the customer to choose the variant (size) they want, and I want to accept only 50. So it doesn't make sense to set inventory on sizes. As there is no way to predict how many of each size will be pre-ordered. As far as I can tell this isn't possible in shopify right now. But will it ever be? I guess there isn't a terribly large demand for such a feature. Maybe there are clever work-arounds that aren't striking me? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.

Shopify can handle quanities only as per variant.
You might want to have a look at the ‘attach notes’ feature:

Thank you, that will do the trick! Great work on Shopify BTW. I’m surprised with how versatile it is when compared to other software!

I won’t name names, but there are certain other carts that require you to BUY add-on modules to do half the things that Shopify does.

Thanks again.
