I've ordered on of the following by Vaja. I realise they are expensive but they are hand made and top quality. I've got a similar one by Vaja for my iPhone 4S but it doesn't have the elastic strap. Vaja has a very good reputation.

I have the Sony Ericsson MW600. It comes in both black and white and works fine with my iPhone 4S, iPad and PS Vita. It should work just fine with the iPhone 5. It comes with its own headphones but you don't have to use those if you don't want to. I don't as I have the B&W P5's which I use just fine with the adapter. Any headphones with a standard connector will work.

Since there's no openings at the bottom for the ear jack, that means you would have to take your phone out of your pocket and place it back in naked which defeats the purpose of having a sleeve/pouch case. I really like the Sena Elega one, but this is one thing I don't like about these type of cases. I love how it provides ample protection for my naked iPhone but when using it with headphones becomes a problem.
The Golla wallet I use has a cut-out for headphone cables.

Will post pics tomorrow.

Does anyone know of a really professional and simple sleeve? The only one I can find that looks somewhat classy and minimal and slim is this one:

http://www.spigen.com/cell-phone/app...na-series.html

I'm looking for a sleeve/pouch that is extremely minimal, doesn't add bulk, and most importantly, be able to plug my charging cable or headphone cables into while being in my pocket.

The only thing I dislike about the Spigen is the fact that its a magnet lock. I hate magnet locks. Wears out after a couple of months.

Magnets wear out? Really? Hmm, damn I was so set on ordering the Spigen. Sigh. I think it looks really classy and professional.

I've never had magnets wear out on me.

Besides, Magnets can destroy the components inside the iphone. I dont wanna risk that.

(longer term)

Yes, I still believe that. Some say that the magnets are not that powerful to do so but Iam paranoid. Sorry =)

I used this same case with my 4S. The naked 5 fits in fine.

Has anyone received the Dodocase iPhone wallet for their iPhone 5 yet? If so, how long did it take? How do you like it?

Wow I ordered my ColcaSac two days ago and was disappointed when I saw the 7-10 day shipping notice on it, but it just came in the mail!

It's super cute I'm glad I have something to put my phone in so it doesn't get wrecked in my bag!

I ordered mine a couple of days ago. They said 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Have a Hard Graft wallet I used for the 4S, but it's obviously to small for the 5.
And the 5 fits good in this case? I can't seem to find it for sale here in the states.

As far as I'm aware there is no known evidence of magnates damaging anything in phones or other similar devices. The only issue would be if there was a standard hard drive which there isn't as the iPhone uses flash memory.

I've packed my DSLR away but the inside is a red cotton it's very soft with no visible lint. There are more pictures at the sellers etsy page here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/92385040...hone-3-samsung

Mine differs from the pictures by having white string with a white button instead of red string with a red button as in the sellers images.

Screen protectors are just a waste of money. If you cant scratch this display using a knife or the edge of a key then a screen protector isn't going to protect it against a blunt force that is hard enough to crack the screen.

And I don't need a case cause I have a pouch. I keep it in the pouch when I'm not using it and that will keep it safe in my pocket and when I put it down on a table.

No. It uses a piece of elastic string and a button. You can view how it works in the sellers page.
