Default Best REAL Leather case?

I am looking for the best REAL leather case that anyone knows of that will be out. Or even some high quality leather case maker that you have used on another phone that you do not know if it will come out. I am tired of searching and I like the zenus but before I commit to 60+ on a case (I rarely buy cases so this is going to be the one I commit to) I would like to see all the best options and opinions

I have a Piel Frama case on my HTC Flyer. It is of excellent quality and service is superior but you definitely pay for that quality and service - to the tune of $115.00. It looks like they only have a flip up style cas for the Note II right now. I prefer the book style like my HTC has.

The last phone I had I was using a leather Spigen case. I was very impressed with the high quality calf leather.

You mean you're not impressed with the 100% pure finest Italian synthetic leather or the vegan leather or the high quality PU leather? (Ok, sorry, I had to get that out there. It's a rhetorical question from my browsing of cases on Amazon. Can't believe they're trying to dress up pleather like that.)

I figured I'd get a temporary case for now and see what was out in a month. So far, I've not seen anything I like for a higher end case that's made for the N2. My friend did have a cool looking leather book cover over his iPhone that I'd like to see made for the N2.

If I were going for HIGH quality it would definitely be Piel Frama or Vaja (I used to be a Vaja addict). The money spent is pricey yet well worth it. If you find a "leather" case for $15.00 it's going to have flaws. All these cheap high quality cases for this phone have not made me happy.

Keep an eye out for Sena's offerings for the Note II. Last I heard, they'd be looking into something around mid-November (they're currently buried in iPhone 5 work).

I opted to order Samsung Galaxy Note 2 II Pouch Case - Brown Original OEM EFC-1J9LCEGSTD to hold me over until Sena makes it happen.

Almost a week ago Sena was bought by Targus. Sena by themselves made AWESOME leather cases; I've loved them too. Targus on he other hand, I've only turned to them for things such as laptap bags. Truly not a fan and don't consider them a company with "high quality" in mind.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

LOL!!! I know how you feel. When the news first broke I was like ohhhh hell no! As far as Sena being deep in iPhone stuff, that's not a surprise. There was a time when I thought all they cared about was anything *i*.

That was always Vaja, IMO.

I can't blame any of them, though. iStuff is where the profit is, though that's unfortunate for us.

For anyone interested, Sena's preorder for the Ultraslim for Note II is up: Sena Cases - Designer Leather Cases : Samsung Galaxy Note 2 UltraSlim

Throw in coupon code HOLIDAYSAVE for an additional 25% off the discounted pre-order price.

I'm glad they finally came to their senses and put the iCrap aside for a bit.

The reviews on these guys have been fairly positive from what I have been able to find. Considering the open back cover one myself.

There are a couple of youtube reviews on various cases from them.
