So, I'm a guy that doesn't keep his phones in cases. I'm pretty damn careful with my devices, so I've never really needed one. But hey, accidents happen, and the iPhone 5 isn't exactly a tank, so I've finally decided to pick up a nice case.

Keyword: nice. I don't want a one of those silicone or plastic cases, I want something that feels nice in the hand, while looking just as nice. I'm looking for a case made out of nice, high quality materials. So, seeing as I've never been in this market before, I'm a bit lost. Any recommendations? I have a white iPhone 5, by the way.
