    I was looking for a sleeve and a wallet type case/sleeve for my wife's iPhone 6. There are a lot of options out there but I ended up ordering from Pack and Smooch in Germany since I've had their products before and was very happy with them.

    The iPhone 6 sleeves did not disappoint. The quality is even better than before. I wasn't sure which one my wife would like better so I ordered 3 types.

    The Elie is a wool sleeve with very nice accent stitching. It protects the iPhone 6 while it is in her purse or when she leaves home without her purse.

    The Kirkby is a wool sleeve with a leather pocket that allows her to carry a couple of credit cards and cash. It is very convenient for her when she leaves her purse at home or when she goes to the gym.

    The Shetland is similar to the Kirkby but it is all wool. It gives it a completely different look.

    The sleeves protect the phone very well making it secure enough for drop protection.

    Overall, these sleeves are hand made with very high quality and genuine material. I feel very comfortable having my wife use these without worrying that she might damage the phone. I'm extremely picky with how well she treats her phones since I am the one selling them at the end.

    I tried the sleeves with her Caudabe Veil case and it still fits, just a little snuggier (not a word) than if the iPhone was naked.

    I have also ordered an iPhone 6 plus sleeve that hasn't arrived yet but I will update the thread when it does. If anyone has any questions or wants more pics let me know. You can find better pics and the cases on their website:

    I ordered one for my plus and can't wait to get it. I have used their stuff before and am always very happy with it.

    Here is the one I just received for the iPhone 6 plus. This is the Kingston sleeve.

    http://www.pack-smooch.com/en/kingston-fuer-das-iphone-6-plus.html

    This is by far the best quality leather I've used. It looks very sleek without adding much bulk and it feels really good when holding it. This was very well thought out by making an opening on the bottom so that we can charge the phone and hear either music or the phone ring without muffling the sound. The cuts are very precise and the phone feels secure when inserted in the sleeve. The leather is different than the leather on the Kirkby. It is also thinner than the Kirkby and I think it's a very smart move since the phone is so large already, this protects the phone without making it bulky.

    @cheapa55:

    A quick question: Do you know if the iPhone with an Apple Leather case would fit in this? I am curious :)

    Thanks in advance,


    - Stan

    Hi Stan, it's unlikely. It is a snug fit as it is.

    I tried my iPhone 6 WITH leather apple case, in my friends Pack and Smooch HTC one size sleeve, perfect fit.

    I really like the Pack and Smooch stuff and have a sleeve for my MacBook Pro. Will definitely be buying one.

    Where did you order one of these, and how long did it take for your sleeve(s) to arrive from Germany?

    This was the first sleeve I bought for my 6 - I had one for my 5 and loved it.

    I ordered mine off their etsy store: ordered on 9/25 and arrived on 10/8.

    Those look really nice.

    I eventually want to switch to a pouch/wallet, but I feel like it would be more of a hassle to pull the pouch out of my pocket, pull my phone out and check it. I think this might be more feasible once the Watch is introduced, since you won't need to pull your phone out for each alert.

    I had this thought today as well. I usually use a case, but since I got a Pebble I don't take my phone out as much as I used to.

    I ordered directly from the website. I believe they sell on amazon as well. Mine took about 1 wk to arrive.

    Nope. From amazon. Should it make a difference?

    I went black wool wallet and love it. I have a bunch of their stuff and it is all good. I'd say 10 people have asked me where to get it already in the last three days.

    not sure it matters but my guess is amazon's shipping estimate is on the safe side. I am guessing it should arrive much sooner than that.

    Looks good but I don't like the corner being chopped off.

    I actually like it. It makes removal of the phone easier.

    It's the area of the phone that can get marked easily

    Is there any sleeve to put an iphone plus with the apple original case or any similar case on?

    Not sure but I use the sleeve with a very thin Caudabe Veil case and it fits just fine. Since the apple case is much thicker, I would assume it won't fit. Contact the manufacturer to see if the has a bigger sleeve for another phone that might fit the 6 plus with the apple case.

    A couple of months ago my wife lost her favorite Pack & Smooch sleeve so we decided to order a new one. At that time they started selling the Herwick wallet sleeve so of course my wife liked the best one available. The cost was a little more than the other sleeves since it is made of genuine leather on the front and the back but it was well worth it. The sleeve is still lined with high quality wool that tends to clean the phone as it is inserted in and taken out each time. The thickness is unbelievably not thicker than the other sleeves but it has an even higher end feel to it due to the leather in the front and the back. It still feels strong enough to protect the phone in case she drops it.

    The Herwick is designed even better than the other sleeves since it has a cutout on the bottom to allow charging while the iPhone is stored in the sleeve, as well as precisely cut holes for the speakers so that we don't miss a call or message while stowed away.

    Like the other Pack and Smooch sleeves we have, the stitching is flawless. The aging of the leather after 2 months of use is awesome. If you own quality leather, you know how the color and look changes as we use it. This sleeve has aged very well under heavy use.

    Overall I am very happy with this new Herwick wallet sleeve since it keeps my wife's iPhone 6 protected and safe. Hopefully she doesn't lose this one. :)
