On the seventh day of Holiday, my LA friend gave to me: 1.61 leather cases.
Who Would This Be Great For? The clean cut, jetsetting business person who needs something to carry his or her laptop in but has outgrown InCase computer or iPad sleeve.
Who Is Giving This Gift? The significant other who doesn’t want to give a work related gift but cannot pass up a sexy utilitarian good that will make this jetsetter look even more polished.
Why This Gift? 1.61 is a Downtown based, super minimal soft goods maker. They make products ranging from bags to leather goods, which are what caught our eye. Their take on computer protection are leather envelopes that discretely can be tied up and taken to go. They are slightly reminiscent of a big flat clutch or small, discrete briefcase. It’s very well made and would make any professional look a great deal more sophisticated with this as their computer sleeve.
Where Can You Get It? These leather cases can be picked up from 1.61’s online store. They have a good selection of goods but the sleeves are their best products and they have them sized for iPads, laptops, Playbooks, and more.
