Today was bitter sweet for Buffalo Dandy as the wife and I upgraded to our fancy new iPhone 6’s. This unfortunately led to having to retire my beloved J.Crew leather iPhone 5 case that had developed such a beautiful patina. Wanting not only something which would protect my phone but also look good while doing so, I opted for the leather iPhone case about a year and a half ago. Since then the case took quite a beating and even had to be re-glued along the inside edges a few times after Dandy Jr. decided to throw my phone down the stairs one time. The case held up though and I am incredibly sad to see her go. I’m not loving the lighter color of the new iPhone 6 case from J.Crew, and Apple’s leather option seems a bit too plastic looking for my taste. Luckily I found this handsome case from Restoration Hardware and am excited to see if it looks as good in person as it does on the site. Goodbye old friend, you will be missed.
