    I'm happy about these cases. All leather and attractive. There are 6 color choices. Brown, shown below. Beige, Black, Yellow, Blue and Red. All full grain leather. I'm lovin' these. They will make your iPhone look elegant. Not so much for protection at all but beautiful to look at and probably the feel would be nice as well.

    These cases remind me of the iPad Smart Covers.

    I'd rather wrap my phone in 3 £10 notes.

    LOL! @IllusionEntity You're a character.

    I'm interested in the Brown pictured above. I think it looks good. It's not too protective, but I'll have more than one case. This will match my Smart Cover.

    I think I'm going with that color as well. I hope they have some in stock at the Apple Stores on Friday.

    @Europa You're going to the Apple store on Friday?!

    You Are My SHEro! I want to get these iPhone 5s's for me and hubby ASAP, but I know Friday is out of the picture so I want to shoot for Saturday. I'm concerned about the shortage. I don't want to stand in line and then be told that there are none left. I believe the flagship 5th Ave store will have plenty and I don't mind waiting, but I just want to be assured that at the end of my wait, there will be an iPhone for me and hubby.

    Oh yes and the Brown ROCKS too. Nice looking color.

    SHero. That's cute. :) I'm still considering options, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to Apple Store on Friday.

    SHHHHHH! Don't tell! We've been rocking in this Forum for years together! Be a pal! Please don't tell the man! Have a little heart. Besides, you can't have @Europa all to yourself! She's for all of us to share!

    Well, wait a minute! Um, let me rephrase that. We love her help, expertise and logic. That's what we need here. That's what we love. Um, yeah. Sorry if this was taken out of context.

    I got a black one on my space grey! Have to say wasn't totally sold at first but now I'm really liking it.

    I got a Black 5S case for my 5 on the 5S/5C launch day and i love it, my Spigeon Tough Armour's been chucked in the drawer for the foreseeable future.

    Bought me the red one on launch day. Love the look and feel. Doesn't add a lot of bulk which is what I like.

    I ordered my case at the same time I ordered my 5S. The phone was delivered by UPS yesterday but the case was shipped via FedEx and was scheduled for delivery on 9/27. I just checked the tracking number for the case and it says it was delivered yesterday, two hours before the phone arrived. The FedEx truck did come to my house yesterday, but the only thing they dropped off was something I'd ordered from Amazon.

    I need my case people!

    Ordered my Brown leather case and a 5s Dock on launch day with the iPhones. I received the Dock and the case Tuesday.

    The Dock is nice! Very functional. Same construction as the 4s Dock. I'm so glad I purchased it. I need a few more. One for next to the bed. One for work and one beside my iMac for docking and syncing. Glad Apple finally made this Dock.

    The case is classy. It's in no way a heavy duty case. It'll protect the phone from scratches, occasional bumps and look good but that's about it. I know for a lot of folks they need way more than that. However, this is a nice case to add to my collection. I look forward to getting more colors.

    It doesn't look like the dock will be compatible with the leather case. Is it? I'd get a dock but the 30 pin dock never worked with any of my cases. I got the black leather case but I'm wishing I has gotten brown. I'm sticking with the space grey phone and I'm excited because almost everything looks good on black. I ordered two SGP Speigen bumpers yesterday.

    @Europa - No the Dock is not compatible with the leather case at all. I don't know what case can fit on the iPhone 5 or 5s and then fit in that Doc. It is mightily tight! There is barely wiggle room. In fact, I was concerned that if you're not careful putting the phone in the Dock you could scratch the phone because of the Dock's sharp edges.

    The black leather is a good choice. Very sleek looking. It will be my next choice after I get my hands on that Red Leather one. I'm waiting to see how the Brown holds up because I read where these leather cases start to show a lot of wear quickly. I guess it’s the skin oils.

    I'm glad you're enjoying your Space Gray and are going to stick with it. Apple made a debacle of obtaining the Gold iPhone. SGP bumpers, great choice! Take pictures when you get them.

    I have been interested in the Lime, Yellow, Pink and Black for the longest time, but I'm concerned about the ability of the bumper to stay on while being taken in and out of pockets. I read where someone said that their bumper would come off when they did this. I wondered how tight their pants were. LOL!

    Well it turns out my case was delivered but by USPS to my mailbox instead of FedEx to my door. It never occurred to me to check the mail. Yay! :)
