iPod cases for the preppy set

If you like to take your iPod sailing, you might want to know that preppy-clothing retailer J.Crew has come out with its own MP3 cases.

Prefer your iPod in plaid?

A cotton patchwork plaid madras case trimmed with leather runs $29.50. Another madras case--which one savvy blogger says looks "suspiciously like the pattern on the dishes my grandmother used to set out when company was coming"--goes for $24.

J.Crew has not yet come out with monogrammed cases or little argyle sweaters to tie around the iPod's neck.
