The Jimmy Case is a wildly popular, critically acclaimed, elastic and wood wallet phone case company handcrafted in California. I was introduced to JimmyCASE when booked on a lifestyle shoot for them. We met on the hip and trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice. It was the perfect setting for that beachy, laid back, vibe everyone flocks to southern California for.
Not to mention they had SO many instagram worthy murals perfect for pictures (You can thank me later). I had a great time getting to know their team, exploring the street art, grabbing a matcha latte and hearing the story behind their brand. It’s a wonder I didn’t find them sooner, especially since they’re hand crafted right here in East L.A.
It all started after Dan Smith, a T.V. Executive at the time spent countless days on set, traveling or simply sitting down with uncomfortably stuffed pockets. He set out to simplify the phone v.s. wallet problem by marrying the two items in a brand new way.
Dan worked to design his ideal phone case in his garage (like so many other entrepreneurs) and ultimately quit his TV job and went full time for his own business. Woo, Go Dan!
I happen to be a huge fan of natural woodgrain so I fell in love with them from the beginning. The JimmyCASE uses all natural, military-grade mahogany, making it incredibly strong and lightweight. The elastic wallet band is made locally in L.A. and holds up to six credit cards securely. It was custom-made especially for Jimmy CASE and is promised to NEVER stretch out (like the knockoff brands will).
The wallet case comes in a variety of solid or patterned color combo’s, including neutral tones if bright colors aren’t your thing. A silicone case wraps around the entire phone and has a raised edge around the face to allow for it to lay down without the screen touching being touched.
They are only made iPhone but don’t worry, if you have another brand of phone they have the stickaJimmy wallet that sticks to the back of whatever case you choose. There’s also the SlimJimmy Wallet if you want to stay more comfortable in the pocket, yet traditional.
I’m always stoked to find local companies to give my support to and share with you all, especially when what they offer makes my life easier and provides others jobs locally.
The Jimmy CASE is a real game changer in more ways than one; funky style, functionality, quality AND made right here in Los Angeles.
