    I was recently issued a 15" Macbook Pro Retina at work and I'm having a hard time finding any type of slipcases or hardshell cases that can accommodate the very slim form factor and still look good.

    Below is a pic of an old Waterfield case being pressed into temporary service.

    I'm looking for any suggestions that SF members might be familiar with. I'm not opposed to ballistic nylon or neoprene but do have a preference to well crafted leather.

    Below is one option that I currently admire but am curious to know if anyone else has tried them out?

    I appreciate everyone's time and feedback.

    Best,

    I don't know if this is your style, but I bought a hardgraft for my retina. I love it. When I take my computer out at work, I simply place it on the sleeve, and it's perfect.

    I'm sure you've heard of these guys, but here's a link anyway to the one I purchased:

    Cheers and Good Luck in your search!
