The big draw of the U MacBook sleeve is its external, two-segmented pocket for an iPod, phone, small notebook or whatever, but I'm more impressed by the understated style of the thing. My current black neoprene case suddenly feels so...middle-school.
Made of grey wool, dark leather and herringbone-patterned elastic, it's the first sleeve I've seen that matches both my shoes and my belt, which obviously is my most important criterion for gadget accessories. Unfortunately it has the pricetag to match, coming in at 79 euros (about $116USD). Guess I'll have to stick with the neoprene. [Hard Graft]
