Protective cases for today’s modern toys are pretty common, ranging from cheap plasticky covers to fuzzy silicone-y bumpers, with just about every color and design possible. Unfortunately, designs made for more refined tastes are pretty rare. If you’re looking for a protective sleeve for your laptop, iPad or iPhone that looks good enough to match your leather shoes and tailored suit, here’s an option. Falcon Gray has put out a line of protective cases made out of high-quality leather, specifically designed not just to protect your laptop or iDevice, they look good too. Okay, we know that looks are a matter of opinion, but seriously, people with taste just can’t go wrong with hand-stitched, handcrafted leather. It certainly looks better compared to cheap, generic rubber bumpers.
Falcon Gray’s product line splits into three, with leather cases – leather sleeves, actually – that are designed to fit laptops as well as Apple’s iPad and iPhone. The Leather Laptop Case comes in three sizes for fitting 13-, 15-, and 17-inch laptops “like a glove”.
The Leather iPad Case also comes in three sizes for fitting all iPad models from the original to this year’s “new” (3rd-gen) iPad. Like the laptop sleeves, the Leather iPad Cases are cut to fit specific iPad models “perfectly”, but the page lists the sleeve’s dimensions in case you’re looking to slip a non-Apple tablet.
The Leather iPhone Case is a miniature version of their iPad cases, basically a hand-stitched leather sleeve with a top-folding cover. Since the iPhone’s dimensions haven’t changed that much over the years, the iPhone case comes in a single 3.375 x 5.125-inch dimension that’s listed to fit all iPhone versions.
All three cases feature hand-stitched edges, a genuine leather exterior and padded interiors to keep the devices protected.
The laptop, iPad and iPhone cases retail for $59.99, $49.99, and $29.99 respectively from Falcon Gray’s site. The online order forms feature a drop-down box for choosing size and color although they’re currently limited to “Black” leather cases. It could be a sign that they’re going to offer brown leather options in the future – to match your brown leather shoes, of course. Refined dudes know that you should never mix your leathers.
