This seems like the case I am looking for. I wish there were more photos of it. I would like to know how it looks from the front too.

What color you guys like? I'm liking the brown leather but don't know how it'll turn out after being used.

In the description it says "...and Instagram in style". I wouldn't buy it just on that basis haha!

J.Crew's assessment that this case will "keep it safe" is questionable. Maybe protect it from scratches on the sides and back, but that's it.

And they should have called it the iPhone 5 Tray.

Course, apologies for poor quality, taken using my iPad.

Feels really nice in the hand. Fits very snugly and theres no give whatsoever. A tad thicker than I thought but is a very nice case.
Do you have a picture of the bottom of the phone? I just got mine, and the part of the case that covers the bottom of the phone looks very jagged. It's almost like they tried to follow the shape of the headphone and lightning holes but failed miserably (WILL NOT WORK with the lightning adaptor). I want to swap it for another one, but I can't find the case in any store.

I purchased the blue one for my white 5 and love it. It's all the protection I need as I'm always super careful with my devices. Just wanted to protect the back and sides.

I was thinking about getting the brown one, but I am worried the leather will look and/or feel cheap. Anyone who has one know how it feels. I dont want to buy something plastic looking. I want genuine rugged leather!

The leather feels good to me. I actually just ordered the brown one from the J Crew site since they didn't have it in the outlet store here.

The leather feels great and it's a really nice, high quality looking case. I have this one in the blue breton stripe and love the look:

My only concern with the case is that mine does have a little give around the edges - if you squeeze around the lower edge of the case, you can feel that it's not a perfectly tight fit. Not really a big deal, but if you're super OCD, it may bug you.
