Made a set of folder icons in both beige and blue. Though similar to the defaults, I've refined a few things that bothered me like the folder tab and the overall shape. I use a few stacks in my dock and the normal ones look like a thin row of blue. These are a little more toward square than rectangle, which I think fits better within icon bounds.

Forstall's more iOS-ish. Also, the white border on top of the blue folder looks a little off. Maybe add some kind of darker shadow underneath top of the front flap with the other shadow inside?
Other than that, those shapes are great.
Federighi Folders could work.
What we really need is Cook's Books
@Louis Harboe Can't wait to see a Quicktime Cue icon.
@Christian Dalonzo I will forever know him as Old Shaky Hands

@Sam Soffes That and Hair Force One
Forstall Folders! Hah! Cook's Books and Hair Force One? I want all these icons.
Very crisp, very clean. I feel like the combination of thick edge shading and the speckle texture makes the material look like concrete, but I suppose that is just part of the style.
Really nice job hinting the smaller sizes. That "A" is fantastic.
Also, the bottom and shadow of the default OS X folder is wrong. Love these.
is there a download link to come for these? pretty please.
Very crispy they will match with the Ive Drives for sure @Louie Mantia !!
Maybe Evi Folders to go with Ive Drives ;) @Louie Mantia
Those are pretty cool, I like the shape you gave them. The target has some sort of a perfect proportion.
The white inner-shadow bothers me too though, it looks really strong. And the borders of the blue folder seems a little too light. As a result, the top border of the folder's cover crossing on the blue background seems blurry with the shadow you applied on the folder tab.
I'm not sure about the top curve of the arrow. I guess you tried a horizontal edge here and the curve won out?
Really nice, but where is the Burnable folder?
@Marcus Lindgren LOL, burnable folders.
@Louie Mantia But it's the only one missing :( Also, getting some graphical error in transmission now: http://cl.ly/JGxW
@Marcus Lindgren Yeah but when was the last time you used a BURNABLE folder?! HA!
That graphical glitch is weird! Not sure what that's about.
Any chance you'll make a Library folder?
@Jason Tran It's in there!
@Louie Mantia Oh, I see. I mistook it as an iBooks folder. :P
