Can you guys with Space Grey iPhones + Saddle Brown leather case combo, PLEASE post pics of how your case looks?

I've always had my iPhones in black leather case, but I've got an itch to try something different this time and get Saddle Brown. I saw a guy with a saddle brown case for his phone and it looked so distinguished and dapper, the combination of the black and brown.

How do you like it?

I have one for my 7plus and love it. Started out really light colored and got really dark. The only negative is that the leather scratches and gets torn/chipped if you drop it.

Gets dark and aged but in a nice way like a nice brown leather boot. I have had both black and saddle brown, and black stays newest looking of all the options, but saddle brown ages nicely imo. It definitely darkens and gets the sort of dirty patina though, but I happen to think it looks very appropriate on that color of leatherZ

Day 1 pic and today after nearly 1 year!
Used on my 7 plus and now 8 plus. Have black leather case too but most time saddle brown is used.
The patina looks amazing. Makes me want to get a saddle brown case this go round.
