I just got this in the mail and I love love love it. The Berlin one. Now I'm ordering one for my mini.
It's not nice to tease. Though I'm glad you like yours. :)

----------

I don't know how much you're willing to spend but check out these two leather cases.

Portenzo Alano

Portenzo Leather Bookcase

And they ship all over the world.
Thank you so much! It's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. The price is no problem - quality comes first.

However, have you tried the stylus pen? I'll use mine only for writing (taking notes from meetings etc.).

Itsy.com will have something.
The correct domain name is Etsy.com, not Itsy.com.

I have a leather sleeve for my Retina iPad mini from an Etsy vendor, this one:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/156601938/leather-ipad-mini-sleeve-ipad-sleeve

The merchant also offers similar sleeves for full-sized iPads.

On a lark, I checked out another (non-Etsy) vendor. It turns out that you can rid yourself of US$880 on an Hermes iPad cover:

http://usa.hermes.com/leather/acces...urable-product-a-leathercase-ipad2-26087.html

If that's too spendy, you can opt for a $165 leather case from Longchamp:

http://us.longchamp.com/accessories/veau-foulonne/ipad-case-4985021?sku=8114

Don't know if they ship to Norway though.

Thanks for your options. I'll check Etsy out some more. However, it has to be like a book (not like the Hermes cover, I've seen a few of those, from Gucci etc. also), it should have the possibility to have a pen (or more) also, and it should, except from that, be as minimalistic and "classy" as possible.

Sorry, I do not have any further recommendations; your original post did not explicitly list design parameters (book-style, stylus/pen holder).

That said, I recall seeing those book-style folio sleeves at Etsy. You will have to do your own searching.

Personally, I think folios with external pen holders are ugly, and the ones with enough space in the spine for a pen are invariably bulky.

Also, I'd rather keep the pen in a shirt (or coat) pocket, rather than clipped to a folio. You'll always have the pen with you if it's in your shirt pocket (well, if you're a guy). I don't always carry a folio/computer/tablet around.

If you want a pen that aesthetically complements a high-end leather case (like a nice fountain pen with a fat barrel), it may not even fit in the pen holder of a folio.

Anyhow, good luck.

Yeah, I know - my apologize for not being precise enough. ;) And thanks - I'll probably go for one of those from Portenzo, they have pretty much everything I want.

Did you try your local amazon site?

Unfortunately no. I got one of the non-leather Portenzo cases (the Wingtip which I love) and didn't get the stylus for it. You HAVE to get the Intellistand option though. It's worth it. And personally I prefer the Magnagrip instead of the strap to keep the case closed but I don't think they offer a Magnagrip option for the Alano which I find strange.
