    Great Case and Good Looking

    • Written by from Astoria

    I try to make objective reviews. I've had it for a month and it looks just like the day I bought it. I don't baby it but I keep it clean and don't abuse my phone. Many people complain it gets dirty and changes color. There's been very slight minimal darkening around the edges if you examinine it under a lamp, but the leather feels great and still looks great. The case weighs nothing. Fits my Klipsh 3.5mm jack and I love it.

    Best case I’ve ever had

    • Written by from Dubbo

    The case is light and slim exactly what you want for your iPhone. It doesn’t add any bulk and the slight lip above the screen creates perfect protection. the colour begins to fade in places which only added a rugged effect to the case which I’ve had many compliments on. I would definitely recommend!

    Superb protection

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I bought this case because it looked good and was light and thin. I dropped my iphone from 20ft up on a ladder and thought my phone would be destroyed. However it still works fine thanks to the case. The case was destroyed and the glass screen was separated from the metal frame, but the apple store put it back in place and still works great!

    Handles superbly, feels beautiful

    • Written by from HAMILTON

    I am thoroughly satisfied with this case for my iPhone 5. Coupled with an iPhone, the case achieves a tasteful, classic look – especially over time. Handles superbly, feels beautiful – therefore I really do highly recommend it!

    What's all the whining about?

    • Written by from Sebastopol

    I love the brown leather case I bought when the 5s came out nearly a year ago. Sure it's aged. It has the look of a well-worn leather wallet or saddle. Very masculine! I love that. And the case protects the phone perfectly. I like it so much that I just bought another one as backup after reading the negative reviews here. I didn't want Apple to discontinue it and leave me without one. I get compliments on it all the time.

    Excellent Case

    • Written by from Andrews

    I almost didnt buy this case because of all the bad reviews. Almost every review on here says they could not keep the case clean. Im so glad i chose to see for myself, because I love this case! I got the brown one so maybe the lighter colors are harder to keep clean. I have had mine for about two months and it is still as clean as the day I got it, Iv never even had to wipe a smudge off. I have not taken extra care with it, I use it with dirty hands while outside and even use it when my hands are covered in lotion. I have already dropped it several times and the case doesnt even have a scratch on it. It is still in perfect condition. I also dont find it hard to take off, it pops off the same as all other back cases I have owned. If you are looking for a heavy duty case then the otterbox would probally be better, but if you are just looking for basic protection that has a classy look this is the best option.

    Vintage Charm

    • Written by from Golden Valley

    Love this case. When I first saw it in person, I thought the leather looked too orange and new, but was really hoping it would wear into more of a vintage leather look with time. I was right - it did! After 6 months of use, it's now a deep brown with even darker brown wear marks around the edges....like an old book or something. It also fits very snug and the leather provides enough shock absorption to protect it from falls. And I'm sure this is neither recommended nor guaranteed with this case, but I accidentally dropped it in a sink full of water once, and somehow the phone managed to survive with no issues. I think God intervened on that one though...

    Simply a nice case

    • Written by from Telford

    I purchased the brown and then wife decided to copy me as usual and bought the lime. Very nice and simple with a lovely leather feel. If you want real leather quality then it's always going to cost a slight premium

    Tight squeeze

    • Written by from Dannebrog

    The tight fit is worth it! I bought the camel brown case about a month ago. Put it on as soon as I got it and just took it off for the first time. No dirt, no crumbs, no dust! I do not baby my phone, it's had plenty of opportunities to get junk between it and the cover. In fact, the reason why I bought this case is because my previous off-brand case scratched the back of my phone less than a day after getting the new 5s.

    Outside of the tight fit, my case has shown signs of hand grease in the places where I hold the phone the most (the sides), not at all surprising with the leather exterior. I think it shows a worn leather look.

    I recommend this case to everybody looking for a case that will keep the junk away from their phone, who likes a unique look, and someone whose proud of showing off the Apple emblem on the back!

    Quality product

    • Written by from Moose Jaw

    I read the mostly bad reviews before buying this but thought I'd give it a try anyway. Honestly it's not that bad. I've had the case on for about a month and I would not call the appearance dirty, not mine anyway. It looks "aged" is probably the best way to describe it. I don't mind the look one bit, although maybe mine isn't as bad as some others. It's real leather, it will change color slightly and I'm good with that.

    The case itself is very high quality and aside from a slight discoloring it's a fabulous case. If a slight discoloration on the edges bothers you, don't buy it.

    The Best Case I Own

    • Written by from Glandore

    After buying numerous cases, this is the best one I own thus far. This case has everything I want in a case, it looks stylish, it is thin, protective and too be honest, it improves the look of the phone instead of making it look tacky. The only complaint that I have is that the corners are turning shiny, I would like the material on the outside to at least look the same throughout the usage. VERY.GOOD.CASE

    Um, wash your hands?

    • Written by from Burlington

    This is a high qualtiy case and I think the people complaining that it "gets dirty" must be dirty themselves and have disgusting hands. Maybe they aren't worthy of a nice quality leather case and should stick to a cheap plastic one, or maybe they should just buy some soap. I have had this case for weeks and it looks exactly as it did when I opened it. It's exactly how you would expect a leather Apple case to be. The leather smells great, the case fits perfectly, what more do you want? If you handle it gently and aren't a disgusting 3rd world freak then it will probably last a lifetime. If you are a low class pig, or need to handle the phone while on the job w/ dirty hands, then it's probably not for you. End of discussion.

    Exactly what I needed!

    • Written by from BROOKSVILLE

    The iPhone 5 and 5s are already the most durable iPhone yet, but that just wasn't good enough for me, considering how important this product is to me and how likely I am to do detrimental damage to the phone with no protection. However, I cringed at the thought of having to pull a brick out of my pocket every time I wanted to use it. This is the perfect solution. It protects the phone completely from almost any damage I can inflict on it in a day. Drops into any surface from chest or head level don't harm the phone in the slightest, however concrete drops have made some scuffs on the case itself, which is fine compared to what would happen otherwise. On top of that, I don't even need a screen protector to prevent scratches because the case comes slightly over the level of the screen, eliminating that need.

    This is a small but powerful case. Stylish, and engineered to perfection, it's well worth the money.

    Great Case!! Go Apple Go!

    • Written by from Wellington

    I have red all reviews and I don't really understand why people would by a case and then wanting to remove it prom the phone! If you buy a case or any other brand, you want the case not to be removed. I can see people remove it as they want to use the dock connector or the power adaptor. Go and buy a cable that does not need the adaptor and if you want to use the dock, well this case is not for you.
    I have had this case for over 3 weeks and it looks like the first day :) I am very happy with it.

    PS I do not work for Apple, I am an Apple fanatic since the year 1999,

    Cheers,

    Perfect ...

    • Written by from Birmingham

    I'm not sure what everyone here is banging on about ... the iPhone is meant to be perfect. Flawless. Each one perfectly crafted and identical ... unrelenting in its perfection. This case however is made of leather. Not aluminium and glass. It's natural and organic and each will wear uniquely depending on the habits of the user. It won't stay perfect and unblemished forever. It isn't as soon as you take it from the box - it's not supposed to - if that's what you want, but something plastic and soulless. This case (whatever the colour) is therefore the perfect counterpoint to the phone. Revel in the fact that your phone is flawless in design and operation. Yet the case makes it unique and yours.

    Perfect

    • Written by from Kingston

    I was hesitant to spend the $ for this case based on some of the reviews here. I was nervous that it would look dirty after one week and be extremely difficult to remove.

    Neither has been the case for me. It's snug but easy to remove. Pry it from the bottom gently and pull. Easy. It protects the phone and looks great. It's engineered to tight tolerances so all your buttons, though covered, work perfectly. The only cutout that might give one problems is the one for the headphone jack. I had to push in my jack fairly hard to get it to fit snug. After about a week, the leather adjusted and now the jack fits just fine.

    It's light. It protects. It looks great. Smells great, too. The more it ages, the more it feels like suede.
