    Looks good...I love the worn look on leather, gives it character!!! I have an Apple Leather case but I switch cases almost everyday & sometimes I don't use a case, so my beige one still looks brand new.

    Yea, I too love the vintage look. I am planning to buy brown leather case as I have seen the brown case looks pretty elegant once it starts aging!

    I would like to see some pictures of the brown one that has worn over time. I'm interested in buying one but wanted to see what it would eventually look like. Thanks!

    I'm sorry, but what color was this originally? Red?

    My black one broke around the head phone cutout below the leather but the leather is still intact. I'm using an Otterbox Symmetry until my 2 dbrand skins arrive.

    Hmm, broke..? They seem to be quite sturdy. Did you try to plug-in a headphone whose jack was too big ?

    Unfortunately I didn't. It's beneath the surface of the leather so it's still very usable though.

    I have a blue and a brown, the brown has been hardly used. Here is my blue one I have been using it since November and had it on during a couple of grimy field trips. There is a bulge type defect that appeared during one of those trips, not sure what caused it.



    Defect:




    I think it has held up very well specially for such a light color.

    Wow, I was trying to figure that out myself. I'd be sad if my red turned pink. Lol

    For how long your case has been used?

    My blue case started to become dark blue along the edges pretty quickly. So, since I own a laser engraving business, I decided I might as well engrave something on it. I was hoping the engraving would be the same dark blue... but it wasn't, it was grayish brown. It was cool but wasn't a big fan.

    However, after a few months it did turn blue... Now it's 8 months since doing the engraving. The case is a bit rough on the edges, but I've dropped my phone numerous times and it's protected it well.

    I do like the brown leather case even after it has gotten worn. It looks really good with the gold iPhone. Sometimes I wish I had gone for that look. But, I am happy with my space grey iPhone. I haven't gotten my black leather Apple case yet, but I'm thinking that I'm going to soon.
