I'm extremely happy with this case.
I got mine with red straps with a red interior with the white polka dots
(although, I was hoping for the black polka dots as another reviewer mentioned).
As another reviewer mentioned, the color isn't nearly as dark as the pictures

I put to coats of brown shoe polish and let it dry in the sun for a few hours.
This darkened the tone substantially and it made the material shine and look
I should mention that the red stitching on the outside was colored brown (which
Also, following another reviewers' advice I removed the tag.

use instead of Dr. Jones. Looks like it'll keep pens scratch free and help me
from loosing them. I'll also put hard backing with pens to add further
This is my newest pen case and now it's the one I want to carry with me all the

know that the tie is very fiddly but I enjoy using it anyways, and it's so much
less cheesy than something like velcro would be.
