As you can imagine, the fact that each case is handmade means placing ASAP orders for delivery in time for Christmas is not possible this late. Only the "Saddle Brown" may arrive in time, whereas other finishes won't ship until late January.
If you do order a case with the intention of giving it as a gift, we recommend handing over a holiday card with the instructions to be patient for something amazing and handmade. When it does then arrive, the recipient will be beyond the rote "thank yous" and blanket appreciation of holiday presents and in a position to properly appreciate such a special item. Or you can just go with SkyTop's "order confirmation in gift box" option.
Where to buy: Only available online, direct from SkyTop Trading.
How much: From $86 for an iPhone case, to $329 for a DSLR case, to $1,175 for the Classic Pullman Briefcase.
Not our best photo, but shows the side of the case and how it looks over a thick camel overcoat
And, like any handmade leather gear company worth its salt, SkyTop also makes accessory cases. For iPads, iPhones and laptops of course, but we're most impressed with the semi-rigid leather protective cases with quick shooting access for DSLR cameras (pictured below).
