Do you ever wish that your iPhone could look a little bit more luxurious? Sure, the reflective shine on its metallic back is great for checking your teeth and hair before a meeting, but what could guarantee you a follow up meeting is whipping out a leather-bound iPhone 4 to schedule it in! Here I have compiled a list of ten excellent leather cases for the iPhone 4.
1. iPhone 4 Aluminium Lined Leather Case
If you like to dress to impress, then chances are you’ll want the slickest case that money can buy for your iPhone 4; well, here it is. Crafted from only the finest quality leather, this case boasts a protective aluminum plate lining that will protect your iPhone from even the toughest of bangs and crashes. My friend has used one of these cases for quite a while now and has no complaints; the magnetic strip that holds the leather clasp in place is a nice touch as it prevents the case from flapping everywhere when you are walking with it in you hand. You can also request a removable belt clip so that you can wear it on your hip…nice.

2. Ted Baker Patent Leather Style Apple iPhone 4 Pouch – Women’s
This is probably the most stylish iPhone case ever made. With an oversized zip on the back of this satin-lined casing, your iPhone will never look so fashionable as it does when zipped up tight inside this Ted Baker case. Coming in both black and red finishes, the patent leather will protect your iPhone 4 from bumps and scratches whilst simultaneously ensuring that you are the coolest cat in the room as you unzip your iPhone to answer a call from the ghost of Miles Davis. Designed with women in mind, however a confident man could easily pull it off, this case seems intent on bringing the iPhone to the catwalk.

4. Ted Baker Leather Style Apple iPhone 4 Case – Men’s
OK girls, move over because the boys need some fashion advice as well, you know?! If you want to be the coolest guy in the room when your iPhone rings, then you need this case; a leather-style design will give your iPhone the much needed protection from the enemies of keys and pocket change, the case comes in two different styles, with a sky blue image or a classic brown leather feel. Whichever it is that you choose, you will know that your iPhone is well protected and easily the best accessorized phone out there.

5. Ted Baker Leather Style Apple iPhone 4 Pouch Case
This one really does raise the stakes in the fashion game; its sleek pouch style design makes it look a bit like a wallet or one of those vintage sunglass holders that you see in Mad Men. The lining of the pouch is absolutely beautiful and your iPhone 4 will slip in and out of it with ease; it even contains a retractable tag that releases the iPhone but keeps it securely in place when not in use. Coming in two different signature lining (either Bulldog or Spaceman), this one is for the leather case connoisseurs.
6. Piel Frama Red Crocodile Magnetic Leather Case Ver.2 iPhone 4/4S
Here’s one that you should snap up in a hurry; every red leather case in this production line is sewn by hand and you can really feel the quality when you do get your hands on it. Manufactured in Spain by leather artisans who only use the finest, locally sourced and eco-friendly materials, this crocodile skin-style case offers much more than just protection; it offers style and grace to your look. It come with a magnetic closure system so that your iPhone is securely locked at all times and a removable belt clip for you to clip on to your waistband or bag compartment. It’s not the cheapest on the list, but if you can afford to splash out then I would seriously recommend this snazzy looking case that lends an air of luxury to your iPhone 4.
7. Case Mate iPhone 4 Leather Hipster
Another hip holster here, proving that there’s still an opportunity to be a cowboy in the 21st Century. Designed to be your iPhone 4’s only case, (i.e. don’t put a plastic case around it first, there’s no need!), the leather hipster clips to your belt and affords you the option of answering your iPhone in the blink of an eye. What really comes through here is the quality and workmanship; if you want a decent, durable hipster case that won’t break the bank, look no further.

Zagg have really got their eye in when they design their iPhone 4’s leather skin cases, made from 100% genuine cattle-hide leather, with premium designs embossed over the skin. Your iPhone won’t look out of place at a hoedown with the variety of patterns ranging from alligator, ostrich and lizard pattern with the choice of finishes being black, tan and premium, (pictured).

10. NeoGear Deluxe Carbon Fibre Leather Flip Case for Apple iPhone 4 (Black)
If you want your iPhone to look sleek in a leather wraparound case then this could be the case for you. OK, so it’s not real leather, but the imitation stuff looks just as good and it means that no cows were hurt in the process of making it. The grip provided by the (faux) leather means that it won’t slip out of your hand at an awkward bump in the road and the gaps left for the iPhone’s camera and volume control buttons mean that the functionality of the iPhone is not affected by its new protector. Best of all, it comes with a free clear screen protector to avoid scratches and smudges on your iPhone’s screen.
