Excellent Piel Frama leather case for my G1

I have been a long time fan of leather cases by Spanish leatherworkers Piel Frama

http://www.pielframa.com/

My first case with them, was for my T-Mobile XDA, and then later for my MDA Pro and Ipod Nano 3th gen.

They are a luxury case manufacturer, so don’t expect these cases to be cheap. However they are a good investment, the quality is excellent and they will last a very long time.

What also impresses me every time is the packaging you receive the case in. They really understand the emotion and feeling of the first time you receive an item. The sense of luxury and privilege. I always find myself keeping these boxes for far longer than is necessary.

The hard top cover may seem a little rigid and out of shape, but over time it will mold itself to the rest.

I have removed the belt clip with included key, as this will be carried in my coat pocket. The only downside to this particular case is that its not possible to open the G1. It would have been impossible to design a case that would allow that I am sure, as the mechanism for opening is strange.

Yes, a case like this is quite an investment (70 euros), but bear in mind it will last me as long as the phone itself, and on average my phones last me 3 years. Personally, for me, the sheer pleasure of having a proper leather case is already enough to justify the price. What can I say, I am a sucker for good leather cases šŸ™‚
