Thanks for the recommendation and link! (y)
I've had one on a 13" for almost 7 years, it gives great protection. As you said it still looks new, when you take the cover off.
This is good for the 16", I have it on mine, also has a key cover and screen protector. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08218YDCD/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00
Damn. In the market for a 16 inch one. Wonder if it's like shoes and you can risk going a size down and squeezing into them if you really like them...
This is such a good cover. I had one years and years ago and loved it (I no longer have a MacBook Pro). When I sold it the person, they couldn’t believe that it was 2nd hand as it literally was pristine
