There's nothing worse than seeing someone rake it in doing something you could easily do better, unless that thing is raking, in which case, just let it go, man. From an ex-Apple guy ensuring Jobs rakes in a little less on gear-sleeves, Old Calgary.
Produced in S Florida by a once-and-future Seattle resident frustrated by the shoddy sleeves produced by his former fruit-inspired employer, Old Calgary hand-makes understatedly sumptuous sleeves (eschewing unnecessary flaps, pockets, etc.) for personal electronics ranging from laptops, to the Kindle, to i's like the Phone and Pad, both of which need protecting since they're so voweluable. In pursuit of his minimalist vision, the maker conducted an exhaustive search for the right material, settling on a waterproof, fuzz-free wool felt (quite "luminous" in the right light) procured from a Boston operation that imports stuff from Germany -- surprising since, thankfully for Paul Pierce, Boston operations usually miss out on that type of thing. Current OC offerings come in dude-friendly shades like anthracite and concrete, and are oh-so-subtly branded with an X, further proof they're appropriate products for -Men.
Soon enough, this dude'll also be stitching leather goods like wallets and seriously handsome messengers, and doing custom orders for sunglass cases, keyboard sleeves, portfolio covers, or "just about anything" anyone's raking. Wait, no. Making. God, can you imagine?
