Travel “Colonel Style” this Summer

Colonel's Suggestions for your Summer Travels

Welcome all you travelers and adventurers, to the world of Colonel Littleton. Embark on a journey this summer unlike any other – one steeped in tradition, luxury, and a touch of old-world charm. We invite you to step into our world, where traveling isn’t just a means to an end but a cherished experience in itself. Welcome to the art of traveling “Colonel Style.”

“I’ve been on many trips in my days… camping trips, business trips, family reunions, and adventures abroad. Something I really appreciated years back was the classy traveler. There was a time when people didn’t wear sweatpants to the airport. Back in the day, you’d see men and women alike dressed to the nines, carrying quality luggage on their journeys.

Rather than being a thing of the past, I decided to design some travel accessories and luggage to resemble what folks might have carried many years ago.

In my own travels, I always carry my No. 3 Grip Bag and No. 7 Garment Bag.” – Colonel

A Touch of Class

Whether you’re a proud owner of one of our travel bags in search of a matching luggage tag or you’re curious to experience the quality of Col. Littleton with a smaller item, rest assured, our Luggage Tags will exceed your expectations.

No. 2 Shave Kit

Not just for shaving, this toiletry bag will turn your travel experience from mundane to special. Our vintage brown polished leather dopp kit is made from American Steerhide and complemented by a No. 8 Khaki Cotton Canvas interior which snaps out for cleaning. It’s roomy, convenient, and will upgrade your shaving experience. 

This is not your usual “pop-open” shave kit. The combination of leather and canvas produces a toiletry bag pleasing to the eye and durable enough to withstand the rigors of travel for years. Even when this one is road-tested and battle-scarred, it will still have a look of quality and character.

Available in American Steerhide, American Buffalo and American Alligator.

No. 27 Passport Wallet

“The No. 27 Passport Wallet is something I wish I could have carried when I did a lot of work-related travel. Going through security at the airport is certainly not my favorite pastime, however, consolidating your important travel documents makes it a lot easier.” -Colonel

When business or pleasure calls you abroad, this convenient Passport Wallet will serve you well. Neat and compact, it holds your U. S. Passport on the left side. On the right side there’s a pocket for cash, receipts and travel-related documents as well as two spaces for multiple credit/ID cards.

Col. Littleton Travel Bags

Colonel personally favors the No. 3 Grip Bag for its unique copper tubes and solid brass fixtures. Each bag is uniquely different, allowing you to choose the one that speaks to you! We offer five styles of travel bags, some of which have additional leather variations. Explore our Grip Bags and Duffels further by checking out our blog post titled “Find Your Perfect Travel Bag.” This post allows you to compare the dimensions, weight, buckle closures, and leather selections available for each bag.

Here’s what our customers have to say…

This bag is first class. I used it this past weekend for a 3 day trip to NYC. It was big enough to hold everything I needed, and still small enough to carry on the plane. Between Charleston and NY, I received no less than 3 compliments on my new bag..."

An overnight bag like no other, fits everything for a simple 1-2 night adventure. The quality materials, craftsmanship, and outstanding looks are apparent both close and far away. Don’t use if you're looking to fly under the radar!"

This is a magnificent bag. The construction is very well done. It is quite roomy. An eye catching piece of luggage. Very classy. Delivery was quite fast as well. I am looking forward to acquiring other products in the future."

Just received my Buffalo No. 3 Grip Bag. Had looked at this product for several years, originally seeing the standard leather model. This product... fit and finish… exceeds expectations. The bag is extraordinary... This company knows how to go beyond meeting the customer expectations. To say I am impressed is an understatement. So nice doing business with a company that truly focuses on the customer experience and provides “stellar” products."

My wife got me a new no. 5 grip for our 30th anniversary. MAN I can say there is no compromise on quality and craftsmanship put into my new grip bag! As with all my Colonel Littleton products, I am constantly being stopped by people I know (and complete strangers) asking to see my bag, and where did I get it? What a stunner! I expect this bag to become a family heirloom someday…"

The Frequent Traveler's Best Friend

A good garment bag is the frequent traveler’s best friend. This one is made of sturdy khaki cotton canvas with full-grain polished American Steerhide trim. Lightweight, yet durable. The bag holds up to three suits. Great for overnight and weekend trips.

Solid brass hardware and zipper. 46 ½” (H) x 22 ½” (W), folds to 23 ¼” (H) for easy transport. Leather hand carry strap. Leather loop to secure hangers.

Make it undeniably yours by having it personalized with three initials on the brass oval plate.
