Post Dooney & Bourke Leather Case- Opinions Please!

Does anyone here have the D & B leather case? Or has anyone seen and handled it. How is it protection-wise & what does it look like opened up? (Anyone have pics of it open?)

If you own it are you happy with it. I like the looks of it and I'm tempted, but would love to hear other opinions.

One more question, which color would be best with my dark blue 505?

I look forward to hearing your opinions!

There were lots of pictures and opinions when the Valentine edition of Sony PRS 500 came out last year.

I did look at the pics of last years. What I really want to know is what does it look like inside, how does it "feel" in use. I was hoping someone had seen this one in person. Also, is it available in the Sony stores or online only?

I just ordered the DB cover off of SonyStyle. I'll let you know how it works out. I am such a pushover for this type of thing!

DB color

I ordered the brown/burgundy-ish color. I hope it looks as good as on the website.

That's the one I'm interested in; I think it would look real nice on my navy blue Reader!!

Agree - I have the blue reader too. My cover shipped today - looking forward to having it soon - hopefully by Friday.

I ordered the Black D&B cover for the wife as a valentines day gift and it arrived yesterday. Very nice case. I just wish there were an option as nice for my Kindle. Very solid construction, excellent stitching, everything I have come to expect from the D&B name.

I got one in hand!

Hi all, I received my D&B cover today in the mail. The package was HUGE for such a little product. It came in a pretty kewel silver tin box that will be useful in the future to store stuff - it's pretty big. When I finally got through the maze of packaging and got to the cover, I was a little underwhelmed. It is definitely good looking. It's made...... tada - in China (what the hell isn't these days). I put it side by side with the stock brown cover that came with my 505 and there is not much difference in the quality except that it looks nicer. I don't think it was worth the $149 but what-the-hey. I make a good income, I have no rug-rats, I'm getting OLD, and I've got to spend my money somehow !
