Executive Leathers

Leather Gifts

Off the Cuff: HomeBanc South Florida gives its senior executives $1,000 white gold cuff links with the bank's logo. So when the marketing department went shopping for an executive gift recently, the $200 leather cufflink travel case by Prada seemed perfect. The company's south Florida regional president was the first to receive a Prada case.

i-Catching: Gucci recently introduced an iPod carrying case with the GG design and leather trim. It costs $195 -- almost as much as the iPod itself.

New from Levenger: Delray Beach-based Levenger, renowned for its fine leather goods catalog, is introducing new versions of some of its more popular items this month. Among them, says marketing exec Tracy Lamb:

> Bomber Jacket Brief: An executive's overnight bag made of soft bomber-jacket leather. "Very executive, a good seller." Price: $268

> Circa Jacket: A leather binder in faux croc in two colors, espresso and black, and two sizes, letter and junior. Prices: $98 and $78

> Universal Laptop PJ: The easy-carry handle, pebble-textured leather and bright colors -- like red and teal -- are new. Price: $124
