    Pardon me, my intent is not to offend anyone and i don't mean to sound like some old fashioned gender shaming dude, but why are the new case colors so feminine looking? there's like 4 variations of white. white, turquoise, antique white, and stone. there's also lavender and a pink color. Now, while i don't see a problem with apple offering these colors, nor do i have a problem with males using these cases, your options for a manly color that's respectable and won't be frowned upon is very slim.... especially if you own space gray. there's orange, red, blue, and black. and the blue is horrendously bright. I'm just frustrated about not having any decent options. They did the same to the smart covers/cases. They used to have one for every general color of the rainbow and now its these very feminine colors and it just sucks because i want an apple case but i don't want to feel like a little girl every time i take out my phone.

    Could not agree with you more on this one. I have the space grey 6 and I was really looking forward to the new colors to come out. I was hoping for a hunter green or even maroon (earth tones). I am, however, very impressed with the new brown leather cases that are coming out. I ended up landing on Orange silicone and already ordered it. I am hoping it is not as bright as the blue and green ones of the past but I guess I will have to wait and see.

    I ordered the midnight blue silicone case and shipped already. Will go lovely with the midnight blue sport band I picked up today. See your point and figured this was the safe choice to have color and not scream loud look at me

    I agree with the lack of masculine colors but I do really like the new Midnight Blue silicone color, I will probably end up ordering one to match my blue leather case. But yeah what's up with all the light pastel colors?

    I wish they would come out with a camouflage case with a embroidered rose gold eagle holding a machine gun in one talon, and a bottle of jack Daniels in the other

    I think Midnight Blue is masculine enough.
