Sold in two primary versions -- one without a braided strap ($88), and one with ($108) -- A.B. Sutton's new Sport Slip for iPhone 3G is a playthrough, kidskin leather case that's custom-colored to your personal preferences. You can pick the leather, thread, trim, and lining types from a collection of options, and the case will be handmade to your specifications in 2-3 weeks. Another interesting option is the "Open Port" or "Closed Port" feature, which lets you select between a substantially open, accessory-ready bottom design, or one that only has holes on the bottom for the iPhone 3G's microphone and speaker. As always, monogrammed backs are available for a $20 premium, and each Slip ordered is preceded by a soft felt iPhone holder in the mail to tide the recipient over while they wait for the finished case to arrive.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
