    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.

    I read all the reviews, and, i thought that no one of those tell nothing about how to clean up the brown case. well, USE A WHITE PENCIL RUBBER!!! 99 cents, and the case will be as good as new. great case, i love it.

    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...

    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.

    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,

    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.

    Amazing case guys..

    • Written by from SALEM

    Im sorry but for people who are saying this is a bad case its really not! I love the feeling in my hand it feels amazing.. I bought it when i just bought my iPhone 5S 64 GB as a just for now until i get otter box but this protected my phone so well.. I'm not going to get otter box! I went to turn the flashlight on my phone on and it flung out of my hand up to ATLEAST 7 feet in the air.. hit the ground right on the front screen then bounced and the front got hit at least 3 times.. before it finally landed in the snow.. and its still perfect... the case did crack though..BUT its better than shattering my case.. i love this case guys.. its amazing don't let anything else discourage you.. Great case to go with iPhone!

    Near Perfect

    • Written by from Arlington

    I just can't understand some of these reviews, and how this case would get any less than 4 stars. This is the best case that I've ever used on any iPhone, an I've owned every iPhone. First of all, the fit is perfect. Some people gave it low ratings because it is hard to take off because it's so snug -- maybe because it FITS PERFECTLY. The case isn't designed to be removed and put back on every day and used with your dock -- it's leather, and leather stretches ...basic physics. The first time you put it on, it will be a tight fit, but every hole will line up perfectly, unlike many other cases. The fit and finish is flawless. Second, yes, the leather wears and changes in appearance. Again, this is because it's leather ...which changes in appearance. If you want the case to look the exact same as when you first bought it, buy a plastic case. And this is also why there is a note that says "this case will change in appearance over time" on the package. The case feels perfect in the hand and is beautifully made. Unless you have a ton of proprietary accessories that you want to use with it, or you're looking for a "rugged" case like an OtterBox, do yourself a favor and try it out.

    Great case!!

    • Written by from Grand Haven

    I absolutely love this case. I was originally going to buy this case when i got my iPhone 5s but i got an otter box instead, so after feeling a little buyers remorse I finally broke down and bought it. This case at first was a little stiff but that was expected, after a few days it loosened up and the leather feels great and looks awesome, it is leather so after a while it will begin to take on its own look, kind of like a patina, so it will look more and more one of kind after every adventure you bring it on. overall great case apple and I think you will like it too.
