But first: iPhone cases that don’t suck

December 9, 2011
So, everyone has an iPhone, right?
Well, you need to protect it, so you might as well dress it with style.
I’m a guy who likes to have unnecessary multiples of practical things. You know, like multiple iPhone cases. One is just fine, but it’s fun to have another! This obsession or desire could also be the same condition that most women face regarding handbags, eye makeup, high heels and anything else that women buy…
(See also, my collection of totes of varying handle lengths, multi-colored watch straps, various shoe lace colors, different colors of Field Notes, the list goes on…) #hoarders.
Why own one, when you can own two? GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL. Here are our picks for the best cases of the season.
First batch: Wallet + iPhone case.
Pros: Everything all together, convenient, less to carry. You can watch it age and brag about how much it’s changed since you bought it. Cool, cool.
Cons: You get mugged or you lose it, you’re done-zo.
Clockwise: Natural leather iPhone wallet by Kenton Sorenson; “Madison” iPhone wallet in cognac with green stripes by Landmarks & Lions; “Little Black Book” iPhone case by Pad & Quill; “Book Book” for iPhone by Twelve South.

Second batch: Obviously, the fun ones.
Pros: Hello, everyone needs a Marauder’s Map.
Cons: Nothing. You win—you just win.

From top left: Harry Potter “Marauder’s Map” iPhone case by Warner Bros; “Canal Street” iPhone case by Jack Spade; “Ping Pong” textured iPhone case by inCase (on Gilt!); rubber camouflage iPhone case from J.Crew; “Pantone” iPhone case by Pantone; silicone cassette tape from Amazon; basket weave iPhone case by Chilewich; cork iPhone case by Case Mate; old-school calculator iphone case from Perpetual Kid.

    I have the black version of the cassette tape case on my phone right now. It’s so awesome looking and always seems to confuse everyone.

    … Jeff, sugar pie, I think we may need to have a conversation about the differences between ‘clockwise’ and ‘from left to right.’
