It’s time to finally come clean with everything that’s been happening with regards to my quest for that perfect MacBook Pro case. And my conclusion? There isn’t a perfect one, but rather, many different ones that you rely on during different occasions. My reasoning is simple. In the same way you don’t just have one pair of shoes or just one bag, my MacBook Pro (now named Mike) also requires different ‘outfits’.
In Taipei I got him the Loewe Anagram Portfolio (shown above) which isn’t even available in Singapore. Proving to be a really snug fit, I can also use the portfolio on its own given the fact that it has many slots and pockets on the inside.
From the States he also now has the Incase AnOther + Colette Sleeve that’s designed by Gareth Pugh. I’m a sucker for limited editions, and having the gorgeous quilted interior at just USD79.95 makes it even more worthwhile.
But that’s not all I’ve got.
Yesterday I picked up the Cote et Ciel Diver Sleeve in Toffy Brown as well from Cumulus. Retailing for SGD60, it is a really snug neoprene case that protects Mike from the all possible bumps and bruises. I also got it because Mike and the diver sleeve will fit nicely within the Louis Vuitton Mongram Canvas Poche Documents (SGD815) that I got in Singapore before my Taipei trip. I didn’t get their computer sleeve because like the Loewe portfolio, I can also use the Poche Documents on its own whenever Mike is having an off day.
So without further ado, here’s are Mike’s ‘outfits’ from the top to bottom: the Cote et Ciel Diver Sleeve in Toffy Brown, the Incase AnOther + Colette Sleeve, the Loewe Anagram Portfolio and last but not least, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Poche Documents.
So tell me, which of the 4 do you like the most?
