    Portenzo, maker of the hand crafted, leather, wallet case has released a new photo of their updated design for the iPhone 6+. I know some of you have been curious about their products but there haven't been any photos of a 6 sitting in their Alano Wallet case until now. My case will arrive soon, and when it does I shall post a review for you all.

    Has it showed up yet? I ordered mine on Oct 2 and haven't heard a peep from them other than an order confirmation email.

    Haven't got it yet, but I did get a reply:

    "Awesome Person, Oct 20 10:48:
    Eric,

    Your case is in the next batch of orders to be processed. Your case will be ready very soon.

    Thank you for your patience. It will be worth the wait.
    Sarah

    Enjoy your Awesome Day!"

    Hopefully we're all in the same batch and the "very soon" will be this week. I don't really want to carry around my new 6 Plus that's coming tomorrow naked for too long.

    We'll if you ordered 10/10 then mine should come either this week or the next, that'll work.

    I purchased an Alano Slim for my iPhone 5 in 2012. I liked it a lot, but after five months the elastic strap came loose. Portenzo replaced it for free, but the same thing happened on the replacement case after four months. They were willing to replace the case again, but I decided that it just wasn't worth it. It's too bad. It's a nice case.

    I ordered in 9/29 and I don't have mine. It was promised to ship by yesterday and it did not.

    How strong is the magnet holding the phone in? Any worries about it slipping out?

    Magnet is very strong… but it is also the component that adds weight to the case/phone (which should be expected). I guess like everything else, it will take getting used to. My goal was to ditch carrying my wallet… for a little extra phone weight… mission accomplished.

    How long did it take you to get it once it shipped? Mine shipped today and is showing delivery for a week from today, which I find ridiculous since it's coming from St. Louis to Wichita, Ks. A week, really?

    Thanks. I emailed them about making some mods if possible. Hopefully they are able to since they seem to offer customized work.

    I ordered a customized Alano wallet (different colored leather, custom artwork), and while it was pricey, I can attest that they are very willing to work with you on custom orders.

    Obviously it might be different depending on if your mods are more structural and less aesthetic - keep us posted!

    I received my case (the ledger) but I guess I don't know what I was thinking. Its beautiful workmanship but just bigger than I want to carry.

    Before I attempt to return it. If you're interested in avoiding the 20 day lead time shoot me a PM.

    they are beautiful cases, i want to buy the passport for my 6+ so bad but i'm also worried i won't use it because its too large

    in the dollar pocket, is it large enough to hold unfolded bills?

    also how to you like the mini case ie with just the magnet case on? does it look good, feel good?

    I got mine today, and I have to say that it's a LOT better quality than the last two 12South cases I've had. I can't get dollar bills to fit in the pockets very well unfolded, but I think they will just fine once the leather breaks in a little. VERY well made case, it's definitely worth the wait!
