  • Story Leather: Custom Leather Modifications

    Posted on August 16, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    It's been a while since I've done an FAQ on popular modifications to out case designs, but with the recent set of questions that have been asked I think it would be a good time!

     

     

    To start, our two most modified case styles are the Cartera/Aspen series wallet cases and our holster/pouch cases (not just one type of holster/pouch case, all of them). The wallet cases are popular because they provide great functionality when it comes to combining your phone and wallet and the holster cases are popular because they can fit a phone with a protective case, but some of the recent modifications are ones that create even more functionality!

    The most request modification for this phone is the addition of a belt clip. This may seem little odd since a wallet case is usually kept in your pocket/purse, but most people actually use it as a pocket clip to ensure easy access and a secure hold in a pocket or purse.

    The second modification isn't popular as it is functional, its the complete reversal of the interior. It was brought to our attention from a customer that our cases were actually made for a right handed person and that a left handed handed person would have a slightly difficult time using the wallet cases in their current design. They've suggested that we reverse the interior, phone on the left and card slots on the right, so that it would be easier to access the phone. Since this was just a recent request we don't have any to show off currently, but we will post it when we do!

  • Story Leather: Smartphones of September

    Posted on August 15, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    September is quickly approaching and it seems that Apple and Samsung will be in head to head race to see who will dominate the market.

    In Apple's corner we have the iPhone 6 with the 4.7 inch screen and not long after we expect to see the 5.5 inch screen as well. Samsung on the other hand has the long awaited Galaxy Note 4 sporting a 5.7 inch screen with a rumored smaller bezel as well. Early rumors suggested that there might not be a bezel at all, but we will see. Speaking of early leaks, it seems that a certain Indonesian webpage accidentally leaked the Note 4 specs, but to get all the details visit Cnet.

    For the iPhone 6, gsmarena.com has a list of the unofficial iPhone 6 specs. If you want to take a look then here is the Link.

    Again every is still "hush", but it seems as though both companies are gearing up for spectacular release this September!

    We'll be sure to let you when we released our designs for both phones and once the two releases we should have them ready for our new customization wizard as well so keep a eye out.

  • Story Leather: New Customization Wizard!

    Posted on August 13, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    For quite some time now a lot of you have ask whether or not we could show you how your case would look like before you got it, and for the longest time we weren't able to because we didn't have the right tools to do so. However, we recently (meaning a long time) have been working on our new customization wizard  so that we can bring you what you asked for, a preview of your phone case design!

    It's not 100% finished, but it's pretty close. So that's why we're coming to you, our amazing designers, to have you test it out to see what you think. We currently have the wizard tool listed for some of our iPhone 4s/5/5s, Samsung Galaxy S5, and HTC One M8 cases, but over the next few weeks we'll be adding them to all of our phone cases, wallets, and bags!

     

     

    If you see that following image then click on it and see what you can design!

    We also wanted to mention that you might see a few new colors in the selection, that's because we've added some new colors as well as bringing some some older ones, but because of that we had to let some go as well. So come take a look and try out the Customization Wizard and if you happen to find something that doesn't work please send an email to cs@storyleather.com and well get it fxed.

  • Story Leather Style Stories: Ali Levine

    Posted on August 13, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    For this installment of Style Stories I’d like to welcome Ali Levine,. Ali was born and raised in New York which is known as a fashion capital of the world, which might also be why Ali is so good at what she does. Her career started with big names like Target, Coach, and Talbots but it quickly jumped to bigger named like X-men, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West and so much more! This is only a glimpse of Ali’s background and to read the rest of it visit her website at http://www.alilevine.com. Onto our Q and A with Ali!

     

     

     

    Story Leather: I love the quote you have by Diana Vreeland, “Style – all those who have it share one thing: originality”. Leading on with that, what does your style mean to you?

    Ali: Style to me means its everywhere. Whether you follow the trends, or you have your own look about you, to me thats style. It's who you are. Style is a way to express yourself, without saying a word. I feel I do that with every outfit I wear, whether it to be work, or just running around the city.

     

    Story Leather: From New York to LA, has your style changed much?

    Ali: Not too much. Maybe a few more pairs of shorts, less layers and jackets (yay), and more open toe heels, my style basically stayed the same. I'm still in heels all day!

    I think overtime our style reinvents itself more and more, so in that regard I see myself come up with more innovations especially after working with so many amazing designers out here.

     

    Story Leather:  With it being the middle of summer, what fun tips can you give to spruce up a wardrobe?

    Ali: Details are everything. Dial your look up by adding a statement necklace, maybe a boho fringe light weight sweater, colored heels. Wedges if you aren't into heels. Change your lipstick up to a fun brighter pink or coral, these are all fun and easy ways to change up your summer look.

     

     

    Story Leather: You've said, “Confidence is your best Accessory” could you tell us a bit more?

    Ali: Yes, I have been quoted by the NY Times for this quote and it's something I say to my clients daily, I truly believe this. Whether you are in a vVersace gown, or a chic top from H&M, if you love what you're wearing, its going to show. I personally love when I see a women in designer heels and an inexpensive dress and it gets mistaken for a high end look. No matter what the price, you should strut it right! Don't get me wrong, I love my Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Valentino, Brian Atwood and all of my favorite designer labels to wear, but you'll even catch me wearing my Dior heels with a vintage dress.
    I love it! The mix comes off effortless and my style comes off even more unique. Thats what I try to teach and show my clients every day.

     

    Story Leather: Lastly I know that this world is dominated by technology, especially smart phones. Do you consider your phone a tool or a fashion accessory?

    Ali: Ooh, good question. I would have to say both. My phone case is a Chanel bottle in diamonds and stones, so its definitely an accessory and a conversation starter. ;)
    However, I have over 20 fashion apps, that I use for sourcing, trends, my blog and so much more. Now if an extra battery could be part of my look, that would be just fabulous!

     

     

    I wanted to thank Ali again for finding the time to do a Style Story with us! to keep up with Ali be sure to follow/like her on:

  • Story Leather Testimonial: Andrea

    Posted on August 11, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Here's a great testimonial from Andrea. Andrea reached out to us because she was trying to find a case for her Black Berry Z30 and there just seemed to be nothing nice on the market or just nothing at all. So she was beyond excited to find out that we could make cases for the Z30, and just about any Blackberry phone.
    I was surprised to get home yesterday to receive the last version we spoke about as I didn't realize it was finalized. I was just thinking yesterday that I wish I had gotten back to you so I could have a case before I go to a conference next month! Well it was a nice surprise to come home to. It looks great. I have sent pictures to many of my BBM groups, some contacts at BlackBerry and I also sent out a tweet today. There really is not anything for the Z30 and it's sales are going up due to winning many awards for best phone.  BB is also very big in Europe and the emerging markets
    -Andrea
    We're glad that we could help out Andrea, especially make a case that she was able to use for her conference.
    Here's a picture of Andrea's Blackberry Z30 sporting her personally designed Cartera phone wallet. One of Andrea's first concerns was shipping and I am happy to say that Story Leather ships internationally. So where ever you might be, if you need a unique case for a phone, device, or other just send us an email and we'll be happy to help, cs@storyleather.com

  • Story Leather Smartphone Showcase: Mi (Xaomi)

    Posted on August 9, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    With all the Smartphone companies out there it's hard to keep track of whats what. The household names always seem to be Samsung, Motorola, Black Berry, HTC, and Sony, but have you heard of Xaomi?

     

     

    Xaomi, or now known as Mi is the fastest growing smartphone in China and is on track to releasing their own tablet as well. the reason why we probably have not heard about it here is because they're only available in the Asian markets, they will be expanding to the European Markets later this year. the only question now is what makes the Mi Phone so amazing?

     

     

    The first aspect of any item that stands out will almost always be the price. The Mi 3 phone, their current model, comes in at only $330 (converted) unlocked with the lower end model, the RedMi, comes in at $130. Price isn't everything, but when coupled with the next part it makes it very appetizing.

     

     

    The second notable feature of these phones is the fact that the hardware they run is comparable if not exceeding that of the ones being released from other high end competitors. This brings to mind a Company called 1+ that started a lot of buzz a while back with a smartphone to rival the specs and price or the major phones on the market. I believe distribution has already begun, but only through an invitation.

    Even though I don't have this phone physically, reading through user reviews and tech reviews, Mi has really got a good thing going and it's doesn't seem like to slow down. Who knows, maybe it will breach the US market very soon.

  • Story Leather: Can you make a case for this phone?

    Posted on August 6, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Continuing with the frequently asked question we get, this one should have been addressed earlier given that most of our designs are for phones:

    "Can you make a case for this phone?"

    We get this question quite often, makes me wonder why it took me this long to answer it, and the answer is...it really depends on the phone and case. Probably not the answer you were hoping for, but it's true. Certain styles like the Aspen, Side Flip, Book Style, and the back covers are only available for certain phone models as we might not have a phone to model it after. for the more popular phones like the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, or the Iphone 5/5s we can certain make just about any case for them, this would include older models like the 4/4s, S4, HTC One M7, Note 2, and a few others.

     

    There are other phone models that are a bit more obscure like: Moto X, Moto G, BlackBerry Z30 and Z10 which we can make the more unique cases for. Anything past the models listed would have to be answer by our design team.

    As for the pouch/holster cases, we can make those to fit just about any phone or device you want. Just give us the 3 dimensions (Length, Width, and Depth) in mm, cm, or inches and we're good to go. If you not handy with measurements no worries, we have a mini guide that will show you how to measure the phone which I will link HERE. If you're still unsure then you can visit the phone manufacturers site and they will almost always have the dimensions. The same applies to protective covers, most major companies will have the specs listed on their site.

    So if you've got a phone and aren't sure if we can design a case for you then just send an email to cs@storyleather.com or call us at 1(800) 539-1688 and ask us. We'll be happy to help.

  • Story Leather Testimonial: Barry!

    Posted on August 4, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    Happy Monday to everyone out there. Lets get this week started on an upbeat note, so here's a testimonial from Barry who recently designed his own leather case with us. Here are his thoughts:

     

    I am American and live in Taiwan and have used smart phones since their inception. I have had a myriad of so called leather cases custom made over here, but they are of the poorest quality leather and their life span is quite short....and, they are very expensive. I bought 2 leather custom made Montecito smart phone cases for my Samsung S5 from Story Leather and the quality of the leather and fit for the phone are absolutely perfect, and well priced; I tried only 2 colors and am now ordering additional colors. I highly recommend Story Leather.

    Barry M
    Taipei, Taiwan

     

     

    Here is one of Barry's cases and this particular leather choice Barry has on the outside is the Steel Grey Cross pattern and a Black full grain interior.

  • Story Leather Style Stories: Aurora Berill

    Posted on August 2, 2014 by Jonathan Ly

    This week’s styles stories we got the extreme pleasure to getting to speak to Aurora Berill all the way from Milan, Italy. Whenever one thinks of fashion Milan is almost always right there at the top and Aurora is at the heart of it. She’s a student, photographer, and the founder and administrator at Elegance of Luxury which is her personal fashion and lifestyle blog. What makes her blog unique is that she’s able to get the news of the latest fashions almost instantly because she’s at the source.  Of course to see the Elegance of Luxury visits her blog at www.eleganceofluxury.com.

     

     

    Story Leather: I’ve always heard that style comes from the originality of the person wearing it. What are your thoughts and what about your style is special/original to you?

    Aurora: Yes, I completely agree with you. Clothes show our personality to the world. This is long running process. First we need to buy some clothes which we can combine together, for example; two different people wearing same dresses. At the first moment, we won't notice any difference. Well, there is a huge difference - clothing combined with our style are expressing who we really are. I have my own original style - a combination of several styles. I don’t think it’s necessary to determine exactly what your personal style is.

     

     

    Story Leather: How has living in Milan influenced your style if it has at all?

    Aurora: Of course, even a random walk through the streets of Milan, can be very inspirational for various combinations of various fashion styles. On the streets of Milan we can see the blend of two completely different styles like rock with a touch of glamour, bohemian with couture and many others. It helps me a lot to combine and emphasize my own style.

    Story Leather: Has starting your own blog influenced your style? Was your style any different prior to starting your blog?

    Aurora: Yes, I've always loved fashion but in a different way. I find that reading fashion magazines is an excellent way to improve our own style and this has led to my growing interest in research. Today I can proudly say that my style has changed and evolved.

    Story Leather: The right accessory can make or break you entire look, are there some items that go with just about any outfit?

    Aurora: Very interesting question that bothers a lot of  women. Our outfit isn't complete without some nice piece of fashion accessories. I think that gold and silver jewelry goes with almost every outfit. I would also like to mention one old rule: 'Less is more'. It happens very often that fashion accessories 'take the game' and the beautiful dress just fades into the background. Don't ruin your look!

     

     

    Story Leather: Just about everyone has a cellphone of some kind, it’s a part of us. From a fashion perspective would you consider you phone a fashion accessory if it were adorned a certain way?

    Aurora: Smartphones play an important role in fashion, for example we can download many fashion applications which guide us through shopping and helps us in creating our own style. Even changing a phone case can facilitate the creation of our outfit.

    I wanted to thank Aurora again for joining us all the way from Milan, Italy! In fact she'll be joining us again for a winter edition where she'll give us some tips about the winter fashion in Milan. Don't forgot to like and follow Aurora on her social media channels, this way you can keep up to date with all the happenings of fashion in Milan.
