How does one not consider the aesthetic point of view when designing a case for the MacBook Air? Other consideration: The aesthetic & the quality have to be carried all the way through; just like with the MacBook Air itself. Meet the Aesthetic Series. Hand-cut from hand-measured patterns. Eyed and scrutinized to exacting proportions by artisans in a studio, not a factory. The look and feel are truly as distinct as it's simple & elegant usefulness. One profoundly aesthetic experience wrapped around another.
PROUDLY HAND-CRAFTED IN THE UNITED STATES.

Chris and crew over at Defy make some killer designs, with TOP NOTCH quality. Having said that, they have outdone themselves with these leather sleeves. I spent really good money on my iPad and my MacBook Pro and I wanted a protective cover that didn't look out of place. The fit on these is perfect (with just the slightest bit of wiggle room for a pamphlet or a few necessary documents). I could not be happier, and I'm hoping that they expand their leather line. Every day I carry this I get compliments- on the subway, in a bar, at a meeting. People respond to the perfect design and aesthetic of these. HIGHLY recommended!

The sleeve is beautiful and the leather is quite thick. It's well designed and nicely crafted. 2 small comments: the rio color is much darker than it looks in the pictures (it's actually closer to the dark brown) and the words "defy bags" are embossed on the bottom of the flap, even though the photos on this page don't show any logo. Even with those quibbles it's a great product & highly recommended.

I'm kind of a snob about having well made, high end things.
This is my newest obsession! I loved the white minimalist box with hand-stamping the sleeve came in. Upon opening it I couldn't get enough of the amazing Horween leather smell. Then there's the obvious attention to detail: beautiful stitching, hand-painted edges.... Serious class.
Now I have a problem: I keep deliberately leaving it our for people to see & admire. What's wrong with me?!

I purchased this sleeve to go with my Square bag, and it's a great combination. The sleeve provides extra protection from the elements, but it's small and thin enough that it doesn't take over the bag. The 11" Macbook Air is the perfect everyday/travel computer, and this sleeve makes taking care of it on the road very easy. Very happy with this purchase.
