Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I got this awesome leather case for iphone to review. Even the box screams luxurious. Here is a little about the product.


The Blacksmith-Labs BARRETT was designed with traditions in mind, with a classic look that never goes out of style. The design goal is very simple: to create an elegant yet functional holster with clean lines. The result is a perfectly proportioned holster in our premium leather. Each piece of our leather has its own special touch and unique texture. To further enhance the classical elegant design, every BARRETT is finished with ultra fine stitching to give an unmistaken look and feel of refinement. Combined with our Blacksmith-Labs Signature Series metal belt clip, the BARRETT is the perfect companion of your bespoke outfits to complement your everyday life.
The first thing you notice when you pick up the Barrett is the texture. Its made from soft pliant leather that feels amazing when you touch it. I don't think I have ever seen leather like this in the past. The second thing you notice is the smell of the leather. I have never really known what people meant by loving the smell of leather; most leather I had smelled didn't appeal to me, but this smells amazing. It makes me think of new things and new beginnings.

The only thing I would wish to change on this case would be the clasp. To me if I was wearing this on my hip I think this would be difficult to close.  You have to push the leather flap over the metal stud until it goes through the hole on the flap. I would like to see this with a magnetic enclosure instead just for convenience sake. Although the current enclosure would make it more difficult for someone to steal your phone without you noticing unlike the magnetic clip.

This case is great for those that don't use otterbox and just toss it in their purse (like a lot of my co workers.) Please if you are going to toss your iphone in your bag with screen protector or case on it please get something like this to slip your phone in first to protect your investment. It makes me cringe when people just toss it in carelessly. 

I love the metal belt clip! I am a sucker for brushed metal and love that its the same shape as the logo. You can feel the strength of the clip when you open it. Have no fear when this is clipped to you its not going to go anywhere. I used to have a case that I got at an autoparts store that slipped over and didn't actually clip and if I was to lean too far one way it would fall off. Scared me quite a few times but not with this!

These retail for $79.95 and are worth every penny.
