    Being a guy carrying two chunky items I figure I could consolidate to a single item that has both functions without sacrificing any style.

    Looking for a Louis Vuitton or other designer wallet case. Everything that I see seems to be fake or not an actual wallet case. I looked at Louis Vuitton website (only had slide in/out cases) and Google images which led me to knock offs.

    Anyone seen any designer ones? I don't know many other high end brands for guys wallets other than Louis and Gucci.

    Edit: searched Neiman Marcus website for iPhone 6 and found nothing. =(

    I used to use a Burberry sleeve before, when I had my iPhone 5s, but I have yet to find any decent designer cases for the 6+, heck I havent found one.

    Hopefully they make one for 6+ soon. Might sell my LV wallet to offset the cost.

    Ostrich or just a chicken skin? Do they have a frog skin? I want it slimy.

    For that price tag, it better be either seriously authentic ostrich or chicken skin autographed by Beyoncé! lol

    It's not real but what do you guys think of this one?

    It looks like the name-brand vendors won't be producing too many cases as the phone models are coming out too fast. It's a very expensive process and the payoff isn't exactly stellar. (Why do you think LV charges $400 for their slip case.)

    It would be nice if Apple, Samsung and others would slow down a bit so we can actually enjoy their products for more than 9 months. :p

    I'd say $400 for something that costs less than $50 to make is a pretty good mark up. :D

    Ah but you're missing the point. Material costs, employee costs, marketing costs -- all go into the price.

    Also, it helps when you can produce items with *very little* regard for the employee. :)

    I bought this case for one of my closest friends. She really likes it. It's definitely of much higher quality than some of the other knock-off designs. For the price, it is a great deal. I think it'll last quite a long time even with daily wear and tear.

    It's all about whether its affordable. Because they do enrobe a product with a limited lifespan. Products in the non-digital age lasted very long times, some becoming heirlooms. In those cases, a costly and nice case would, by it's quality, go the distance and prove to be a good buy in the practical sense.
