    Can someone point out some good websites or brands that make some reasonably prices but nice designer sleeves (more-so minimalistic or so, but I'm willing to check out anything).

    The last case I got was from Isis but they claim they're out of stock of all 3 choices I had asked for, and Etsy doesn't make 17" sleeves (or even 15, only 13). I need them for 17".

    Please and thanks.

    I have a COTEetCIEL sleeve for my 15" MBP. I find it a nice fit and it has some padding into the diver like sleeve. Got mine for a nice price after x-mas. Not 100% if they are sold in la-la-land though. You can't get any more minimalistic than that. I think any sleeve works so what about those in the apple online store?

    The booq Vyper is the best protection I've ever seen in a notebook sleeve. In my opinion, it offers far better protection than any neoprene case, the zippers never come into contact with your MBP, and it looks great!

    Thank you for the suggestions, but perhaps my view on it is a little off. I was speaking in terms of design, like minimal design aspects (not something with GFX plastered all over. The only ones that looked good that way were on Etsy but as mentioned, they only like 13" models, not 15/17).

    An example would be something like what I tried to pre-order:

    Like a nice graphic on the bottom or something. But I have seen some mentioned above. I like the viper but was hoping for something in the $30-40 price range. If nothing, I was thinking that the Belkin will be alright, as I like black & red combo.
