    Yes, another iPhone case thread, but the others are chock full of ugly designs. Here's some sexy, slim, and/or simply cool options. What are yours?

    The BookBook - Classy, doubles as a wallet. Not too bulky, all considering.

    Juice Pack Air - not the sexiest, but the extra battery is so compelling.

    iPhone Suede Jacket - simple. I like it.

    The Desmay Slight - All around thin and sexy. Can anyone vouch for how it looks on a white iPhone?

    This one looks really nice! It is really thin and I like how it fully raps around the buttons and holes. I would like to see it on a white iPhone too. I just wish they had a fully transparent case, not a frosty gray one.

    Nude by SwitchEasy

    HEX Code Wallet

    BOOST Case - Thin Extended Battery Case

    JustCase Metallica Case - Thin case with brushed aluminum finish

    iTALKonline Wallet Case

    Simplism Japan Leather Case - Holds credit cards

    ----------

    I like it, but I think I like the leather of the BookBook more.

    I can see people really digging that. It's damn expensive, too.

    That "Nude" looks good to me for what I want (THIN polycarbonate) but I'm wary of anything described as (iPhone 4/4S) for the 4S, as the layout IS slightly different, right?

    I was thinking the same thing, until i saw this review.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDn9r-YdrEM

    Those scratches on the case will drive me mad, and it does make the phone look a bit cheap, imo

    the cookbook really looks amazing. but for some reason i can't find it useful...
    i like the dismay, though.

    are there any other great wallet-style cases? the hex and the one above don't look as cool as the cookbook :D

    What are you thinking about for a thin polycarbonate? Or are you going in a different direction?

    I honestly have no clue now, lol.

    I did order the Desmay case (as a super thin candidate), but recently have been on the Elemental Case thread and reading about the Vapor Pro case.

    I know its expensive, but i just cant put a cheap case on a beautiful white 4s, the way i see it, i will have the 4s for 2 years, and spending $150 for 2 years isn't bad for me, but thats just me. Its an item that is in my possession almost 18 out of 24 hours, mind as well enjoy it.

    So, im going to wait and see how the Desmay looks and feel on the 4s, and then see if i will want the Vapor Pro case as a back up to my madness.

    Did anyone get the Desmay yet? I ordered the Nude on Switcheasy since it's so cheap, I'm willing to risk it. Anyone got some photos for us?

    I ordered the BookBook wallet/case. I was also dismayed by the fact that there is no hole for the camera and flash. I have a laser engraver/ cutter at work that I will be using to laser out an opening so I don't have to remove the phone from the case when I want to take a photo. Hopefully it works out well. If so I'll be doing the same for my BookBook iPad case.

    I'm a huge fan of plain, minimalist cases with the soft-touch feel. Anything which shows fingerprints is a dealbreaker, which eliminates most metallic and shiny plastic cases.

    After much research, I have narrowed it down to the Incipio EDGE in Matte Black and the Incipio NGP in Matte Translucent Mercury Gray. They both provide back protection, face down tabletop protection, and have a matte finish which won't show fingerprints.

    I don't know if these qualify as "sexy" to most people since they aren't the thinnest cases in the world, but the minimalism is a big selling point for me.
