  2. Absolutely perfect. I love and own many handmade leather products. This is one of the best and will last the rest of my life. My son who is a journalist will inherit it when I’m gone. Love it!

  4. I have used my portfolio for 12 years now. The quality has never suffered. And it has worn incredibly well. Replacement pads come very quickly. Love this product and the service is second to none.

  5. Fantastic Product and even better customer service. Ordered replacement pads and it was shipped and in my hands the very next day. 100% recommend doing business with these great folks.

  6. The No. 18 portfolio is a MUST for anyone who attends lots of meetings. It is durable enough to withstand travel while also being elegant enough to turn heads in the boardroom. The portfolio is designed to hold documents, business cards and notepads with ease, and the button clasp keeps everything in place. The No. 18 pairs well with one of the Colonel Littleton leather strap computer bags for style and efficiency on the go.

  7. I received the No. 18 Leather Portfolio (w/ monogram) as a gift from my wife a few years back. It is a timeless design and I think it fits my personality perfectly. If you are the kind of person that wears vulgar gold jewelry and feels the need to remotely lock your car multiple times so people give you attention, this is not the portfolio for you. No, this is a portfolio for people who appreciate “form,” but are keenly aware of its proper relation to “function.” Other portfolios allow others to make accurate snap judgments about the depth of your intellect. The No. 18 Leather Portfolio, however, is the kind of portfolio that invites all comers and stirs strangers to swim the deep waters of your wisdom. Know this, friend…If you proceed to purchase this product, your advice WILL BE depended upon in a time of crisis. Your ability to withstand this trial by fire will be evidenced by the portfolio you carry at your side. Live up to the purpose this portfolio has for you! Learn new things, build something, write a song. This portfolio can handle anything you can throw at it. My No. 18 Leather Portfolio has already outlasted one marriage. Here’s to it outlasting whatever life has in store!

    Colonel, you did it again! Outstanding workmanship.

    I mentioned in my 8/11/18 review of the No 18 Portfolio – American Buffalo I was so impressed I was going to order one for my wife. Well, I did. I ordered her the No. 18 Leather and she loved. Dinner was on her:)

    Again excellent product.
    Thank you,

  9. All I can say is WOW! I signed up for a financial coaching membership and received this Portfolio as a gift from the company. When I signed up, I figured the portfolio would just be a typical one, and probably have the company’s logo on it and I would put it aside and not really use it. Well I was intrigued when I saw the beautiful box sitting by my mail box when it arrived, and then when I opened it, I was quite surprised to find the nicest leather portfolio I had ever laid my eyes on. When I picked it up, felt it, and the leather smell drifted up to me, I knew that this would be something I would use every day and treasure for a long time. I had never heard of Col Littleton products before receiving this and I have visited this website several times since to see what else the Col makes. I already ordered replacement paper for this portfolio because even that is really unique and made of great quality and I don’t want it to run out. I’m saving up for the writing desk next! Thank you for making such beautifully made craftsman products. I can tell that you are truly dedicated to what you do. Oh and what a sweet touch, putting the moon pies in with your products, such a treat 🙂

  10. My then-girlfriend, now wife, purchased this product for me YEARS ago, and it still, to this day, continues to get compliments. We even had our officiant use it at our wedding to hold her materials for ceremony. An overall fantastic product of the highest craftsmanship. I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone.

  14. We had the pleasure of meeting Mr.Littleton Yesterday at a Rotary Meeting. He was their guest speaker and did a Fantastic Job I’d say. My Husband won the Portfolio in a drawling and they took it back with them to personalize it about 1:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon. And today around 11 am the UPS Deliver person came in with a package at our business. I was like I wasn’t expecting anything, Well it was his portfolio with his initials on it. WOW is what I said, Fast turn around for sure. Thank you again, Colonel Littleton

  19. I purchased the portfolio 18 which is my first Colonel Littleton product and am not disappointed. I was a little reluctant and looked at this product online for a couple of weeks and decided to order. When it arrived I was very pleased with the looks, quality and craftsmanship. I started using it immediately and cannot wait to carry it to my next meeting. This may have been my first Colonel Littleton product but it will not be the last! Thanks Colonel Littleton for a quality product made in the U.S.A.

  20. I cannot remember the last time I was so excited about a gift. This portfolio is everything you want elegant durable and high-quality. Every time I walk into a room for a meeting someone either does a double take or ask me where I got it it’s a great conversation starter with clients and also looks good in the boardroom.

  22. I am so happy, after lengthly research, to have purchased my No. 18 Portfolio from the Colonel. It’s quality and craftsmanship is what I expected and the service(s), yes plural, went way beyond what you find today. From the first e-mail, to the product arriving at your door, to the packaging, and the famous moon pie, the Colonel and his crew took all doubts away that I made the right choice. I didn’t just purchase a product from the Colonel I made an investment.

He is a man that knows quality and he was thrilled with his Christmas gift. Thank you for providing quality items, amazing customer service and the fastest turnaround! Colonel Littleton is my go to gift!!!

  33. Great leather as usual. A little worried about the little piece of leather holding the pencil in, looks like it’ll break eventually. I like the brass studded paper, but will it hold up to sinking ink from a fountain pen? Sorry, haven’t tried it yet.

  36. There are a lot of places that sell items like this, but the thing that keeps me coming back to Col. Littleton for gifts (and for myself!) is the attention to detail. From the unique packaging to the superb product, it’s clear that everyone involved has “sweated the small stuff”. In this too-busy-to-slow-down digital age, it’s comforting to know that there are people who continue to care enough to get the little things right.

  42. My 4th stellar gift from the colonel! Having 3 exceptional products from his catalog, I always get excited to open the perfectly packaged gift. So this 4th gift of the No 18 portfolio was equally impressive as all the others. Initials set it up to make all my meetings in style and function. High quality and Tennessee made.

  43. I ordered the No 18 for my husband as a last minute Christmas gift. I had debated on if I should even purchase this portfolio, because it was a little more than I wanted to spend, but when it arrived I was blown away! It was even better than I expected! The leather is fabulous & I LOVE that it’s made in TN. Customer Service was amazing, too! I got a personalized email right after I ordered telling me my order would ship the next day. I’m sure I’ll be purchasing more Col Littleton for my husband in the future! It’s definitely more than worth the money!

  44. This was my first purchase from the Colonel and I must say I’m extremely impressed. Bought this portfolio as a gift and can’t wait to give it. I’m so impressed by the product and the packaging I’m about to purchase myself a wallet. Awesome product and customer service!

  48. Better than I expected. I ordered the black with brown trim as it perfectly matches my briefcase and backpack. The leather is thick offering good structure without the cardboard used in other portfolios. The item looks and smells great and my initials in the corner offer an impressive presentation for me and my small business.

  49. Amazing portfolio! We did a bunch of these for our office management team and they loved them. The high quality, the personal touch of our logo, and the usefulness of them were all highlights. Working with the team at Colonel Littleton was even easier and we received them in the mail very quickly. Great item.

  50. Just purchased three engraved NO. 18’s for our three boys. Ordered Monday and I had them at my door Wednesday. My boys have grown up living in a disposable world. I wanted them to see, feel, smell and touch real natural quality that only gets more character with age. Quality you can count on from the Colonel’s products. Thanks, Colonel.

  51. Growing up in Lexington, Kentucky, I have spent a lifetime using tack and other fine quality leather goods…The Colonel’s No. 18 Portfolio Case (in saddle tan) is about as good as it gets. For the past 2 years, I have used this daily, tossing it about in the truck, entrusting it to protect what ever important business I need to remember. It gets better with age, scratches and patina. A first rate product from a first rate company.
    Thank you Colonel!

  57. The quality of workmanship on this portfolio is superb. It’s nice to have a positive feeling about the old adage “You get what you pay for” when obtaining this product. It is worth every penny for the craftsmanship of this item. And THEN, the assertive prompt, and personalized communication from customer service, the speedy delivery, and OH, if ONLY every Christmas present you received was as carefully and thoughtfully prepared in its packaging! BRAVO Colonel!!!

I am impressed from beginning to end, from your sweet ladies that man the phones to the super fast delivery. I placed the order around 11:00 in the morning and my order was here by lunch the next day. The order arrived well packaged and protected. The box is honestly too pretty to wrap. The dust bag is a super nice touch. The moon pie and the coaster were a nice little add on. The quality of the portfolio can not be matched. It smells great, looks great and feels great. It screams professionalism for the person who carries it. I love products made in Tennessee, especially yours! I look forward to ordering from you for years to come. Thank you for making me look so good to my friend!!!

  66. This was my first Colonel Littleton gift back in 2014; now I’m addicted to his products. I use my No. 18 padfolio every day at work. It’s simple, lightweight, and efficient. I constantly receive compliments and inquiries about it. I’ve now started purchasing these as gifts for friends and colleagues because I know they’re quality, functional timepieces. I’m proud to support a Tennessee owned and operated company right down the road from my town.

  67. This is a really gorgeous product. Both men and women compliment it. I did expect “saddle tan” to be lighter and more tan than brown. The picture makes it appear much lighter than it is. I will also agree with prior posts that the business card holder could be bigger. But don’t let that detract from purchasing it. You can still fit about 10 cards vertically into the slot.

The packaging and presentation make it seem like you’re receiving more of a family heirloom than a product ordered online. The quality and smell of the leather are phenomenal. Looking forward to adding some scuffs and scratches to develop some character!

  73. 5 stars is not adequate to rate this product! I have had my portfolio for a little over two weeks and have recieved dozens of compliments and people wanting to know where they can get their own at.

  78. I consider myself a self-described “leather connoisseur”. I have never hesitated to spend hard earned dollars on products of superior quality and wish I was more articulate and able to describe Colonel Littleton products the way it deserves.

    The entire story—

    My wife and I were in Nashville this year for our anniversary over New Years. We stayed at the Omni Hotel and there is a store within the hotel that carries the Colonel Littleton brand. We strolled through the shop and fell in love at first touch. His leathers are of the highest superiority available. The chosen hardware is heavy, solid and made to a level that will last forever.

    As we looked around, I came across this No. 83 Leather Book Bag. The size of the bag was perfect and light weight. I use it as my everyday carry “man bag” because it helps me stay organized. The leather is “glove soft” but thick enough to last a lifetime. I looked at the price and thought, I love it, but don’t need it. To my delight, my wife wanted to purchase if for me as an anniversary present. Wow!!!

    So, it began… I now own:

    No. 83 Bookbag
    No. 5 Cinch Belt – Brown
    No. 5 Cinch Belt – Black
    No. 28 Leather Pocket Journal – Vintage Brown
    No. 9 Journal – Brown (Not for me, for the wife for her birthday)
    No. 3 Possibles Bag – Large

    All I can say is Colonel, keep up the good work, shut up and take my money!!!!

I’m also impressed with the aesthetics and ethos of the company as reflected in their website. If only more American companies felt this strongly about quality and customer service. Thanks, Colonel!

  81. Five stars plus! We all chipped in to get this for our CPO as a Christmas gift and she was as knocked out by it as we were! The enduring quality of the leather, handcrafted construction and super smart packaging – all these things convey to the recipient that they have received a special, thoughtful gift from someone who thinks they deserve it.

  82. My wife got me this Portfolio for Christmas as I had been hinting at another one I had seen. I am so glad she found Colonel Littleton! Made in the USA was my first priority and then I wanted something that would only get better with age, good quality. I could not be more happy with the product quality and the price was not overwhelming. Great Product, and my wife went on and on about the customer service, even expedited at no charge for Christmas delivery, just something you don’t see that much these days on the customer service side, but I can assure you I will be back to the Colonel for my next purchase! Highly recommend!

  83. Really, really impressed! Purchased this for myself after reading several positive reviews and it exceeded my expectations! Also, I can’t say enough about the “presentation” Col. Littleon delivered in the packaging of this product. You can tell a lot of thought and care went into the craftsmanship and delivery.

  84. I am not a man of means, so I try my best to purchase items I know will last a long time. This portfolio will take a beating and look better with each passing day.

    This portfolio has quickly become my familiar ally. It is strange to feel such an attachment to an object, but I carry this one with me with pride.

    An honest, quality product – made in USA – and the business owner is a preservationist. It doesn’t get much better. Thank you.

  86. The Leather is amazing quality. This is an excellent portfolio for carrying around work. I wish it had two pen or pencil slots instead of one and wish they was a little bigger diameter. I also wish the business card holder was a little wider. I work in manufacturing, so this size was perfect for me for meetings and collecting data. The strap has two adjustments which make it convenient for carrying many documents in the portfolio. What I am most impressed with is the leather, it is a truly quality leather and it is aging beautifully. This was my first Col. Littleton purchase but it definitely won’t be my last.

  97. I just received my portfolio and it well exceeded my expectations. The leather is simply beautiful and the smell of the leather brings back so many memories of horseback riding. The only mistake I made was ordering one, my wife saw it and asked when I was ordering hers. You have a customer for life.

  98. I will tell everyone who will listen about this gorgeous portfolio. It’s beautifully crafted and so functional! Order it and you won’t be disappointed! Oh and Colonel will send you a moonpie 🙂

  99. Just received my #18 Portfolio and I was impressed beyond belief with quality and craftsmanship on this leather creation. I have had numerous portfolios over the years, off the shelf, and custom, and this has to be the best looking and most satisfying to hold of all of them. Looking forward to my next purchase of one of your briefcases. You know, on most hand crafted leather products you always find something with the stitching that is not quite right, even if it is clipping a few stray threads……..not here….hats of to excellent workanship!!!

  100. I got my No. 18 portfolio 4 or 5 years ago. It looked great the day I bought it but I think it looks even better today. Like all of the Col.’s products it’s beautiful but meant to be used. It does have a major issue–they’re addictive–since I bought my No. 18 I’ve acquired a half dozen more of the Col.’s portfolios and journals…The Col. may want to consider adding a warning to his packaging!

  101. I love the look, the feel and the smell of this portfolio I just purchased for my son. He, just two days ago, called to ask for our old beat up portfolio because he had an interview. And while he may not be able to use his Littleton portfolio this time around, I expect he will keep this for the rest of his life!

  102. Exactly what I was hoping to get. Very nicely packaged and speedy delivery as promised. Quality is great, doesn’t compare to Day-timer or Levenger or others that I have looked at. Wish I had found this product sooner. Looking forward to extensive usage and adding other products to my collection down the road. Thank you for the leather coaster and the moon pie, nice touch. Only thing the pie got squashed in the box so didn’t look as appetizing as it should. Like the note pad and the brass rivets are a nice touch. Did notice that the pen loop, with the pencil in it tends to push up against the notepad causing it to buckle where it touches the loop. Not sure if the position of the pad is a little off? Tried to push the pad to the outer edge but didn’t make much difference when you close the portfolio. Very minor I know but thought I just would let you know. Other then that everything else was first rate. Will DEFINITELY recommend your products to others. Thank you!

  103. I ordered the portfolio on Monday and had it in my hands on Wednesday. You can’t beat that!! The portfolio truly exceeded expectations in both craftsmanship and customer service. I will be a frequent visitor to the site and look forward to future purchases…

  104. I am in love with my No.18. My wife gave it to me for my birthday today. She knows me well. One of my absolute favorite smells in the world is new leather, especially when it is so full or character and craftsmanship. I’m looking forward to meetings at work, just so I can jot notes. Who ever says that? Thanks for such a great product.

  106. This product is a happy addition to my ever growing family of Littleton products. This was a great addition to No. 36 when going to high level meetings and interviews. The quality and professionalism appearance is a must for any executive.

  107. I purchased this monogrammed portfolio as traditional 1st anniversary gift (paper) for my husband. I wanted a gift that would be an heirloom piece and I am not disappointed by the quality of the portfolio – it will surely be a piece that will last a lifetime. I had seen a colleague with it so I knew the portfolio would be very high quality, but what impressed me most with my order was the high level of customer service. I received an email a day after my purchase letting me know it had shipped and a personal email from the company following up on the status of my shipment with an expected delivery date. It came extremely quickly and is packaged beautifully. I expected to have to buy a gift box for it, but it came in a nice gift box and is ready to be wrapped. It also came with a mini moon pie – score! I am extremely impressed with the level of care that went into the packaging. This is not something you see much of when ordering gifts online. I highly recommend ordering from the Colonel.

  108. We purchased this as a high school graduation gift for our son. We wanted a keepsake that would be used and treasured by him not only in college but once he begins his professional career. Thank you Colonel Littleton for providing us with a quality product. Your customer service and packaging is impeccable as well.

  109. Outstnding! I purchased the No.18 yesterday afternoon in desperate need of a college graduation present for a family friend. I had attempted to order through a retailer and was told the wait would be 7-10 days. My online order, directly with The Colonel assured me the gift would arrive in time for our get together tomorrow evening.

    I just opened the box and am gobsmacked at the quality of not only the product, but with your team of professionals and the attention to detail paid throughout the process. An e-mail assuring me my order had shipped and would be received on time was such a relief. The packaging is so high quality that I decided not to gift wrap and simply add a masculine ribbon so the box could speak for itself.

    The No. 18 is of such high quality, you have gained a customer for life. I am thrilled. Many thanks to you all!

  111. I have gotten so many compliments on this…I love to take it to meetings, it is so prestigious that it makes me look good too……what a great thing to have…I would like to get my initials on it one day….I love IT….Elizabeth M.

  112. Great Product! I first encountered the portfolio while a trade specific leadership conference of young professionals. A few individuals at my table had a Colonel Littleton and I got to see the quality up close. I made the purchase the next day.

  113. Received my #18 portfolio right before a trip to Europe. Bought it off of another location due to gift cards, but shipped direct from the Colonel himself. Very professional packaging, and a free moon pie to boot.

    I was curious/concerned how stiff this would be since it was all one piece of leather. Something in the process makes it very supple and the portfolio easily lays flat for writing. Also, the feel of the portfolio makes it seem like something you’ve been carrying for years as soon as it comes out of the box.

    I prefer to write with a pen, and I swapped out the pencil for a standard black ink Cross pen. The narrow barrel makes it fit perfectly in the spot for the pencil. No fear of it falling out. Lastly the slot on the cover to hold papers does its job well and there’s enough give that it holds quite a few pages. I spent a week doing meeting with vendors and other work related sessions that meant for a lot of notes. Filled it up with no issues. There is enough room that you could keep a few manila folders in there too, and with the strap snapped shut it would be very comfortable to carry.

    When I was purchasing this I thought I would likely replace the pad of paper with your standard legal pad when it was empty. I really like the feel of the paper, the format of the title section, and the rivets add a special something that have me pretty convinced that I’ll be buying all my replacement pads from the Colonel.

    I also purchased a #20 at the same time, and I like it just as much. Size wise, this item is much more like your standard portfolio. The storage for loose leaf paper, size of the strap that holds it closed, etc means that you can carry a good deal inside of it. The #20 is a bit more portable, and something that I’m likely to tuck between the back of my pants and shirt when on a job site so I can have quick access to take notes.

  115. I’ve had my portfolio a little over a year and love it even more now then when I first got it. The quality of the leather and craftsmanship can’t be beat. There’s nothing more impressive than walking into a meeting with this in your hand. It screams professional. Worth the investment. Highly recommend all of their products and their customer service goes above and beyond to make sure your happy. It’s definitely the little things and attention to detail that makes Col Littleton stand out from the rest. Will continue to be a loyal customer!

  118. Beautiful heirloom quality piece–this will last a lifetime!

  119. Handsome, Rugged & Durable:
    The #18 is the finest legal pad cover I’ve ever seen! The leather is durable and it has gotten even better looking with the scuffs of time.

    However, it is too small to fit things inside when folded. It has a slant sleeve on the inside left cover but pages get crinkled if you store them in there. Also, I would like to carry regular office files (not in the pocket) but it isn’t quite wide enough for this either, and the nice leather snap gets in the way more often than it is helpful (I eventually cut mine off).

    I Highly recommend the #18 for simple eye-catching notepad usage, but for more versatility you should consider the #19 (w/ 3ring binder) or the #36 (it is an inch wider when folded).

    I love all the colonel’s products for their superb craftsmanship and quality guarantee…but at these prices you want to make sure you are getting the right one for your specific needs.

  120. Just received my black portfolio today. I must have said wow at least four times. First was because of the initial presentation when opening the main box. Second when opening the portfolio box and seeing the cloth bag holding the portfolio. Third when smelling the rich leather smell and feeling the quality craftsmanship. Fourth when opening the goodie bag with the inspirational coaster which will remind me to always strive to be stellar, which is why I purchased the portfolio in the first place. The mini moon pie and story was the sweet finale. Superb attention to detail and customer service. Couldn’t be happier!

  122. I received this as a Christmas gift. When I opened the gift wrap and looked upon the box, I knew there was a top quality product inside. Absolutely beautiful portfolio inside. When I went on line to check out the Colonels other products, I viewed his video where he mentions how important even the box is. The Colonel knows his stuff. I can relate to a man who has his outlook on life and craftsmanship and customer service. He has a customer for life.

  129. I am a Senior in college and discovered Col. Littleton via Orvis in October. I purchased this portfolio to replace my cheap faux leather porfolio and have been blown away by the quality and craftsmanship. I use the portfolio for all my classes and have purchased the paper refills (the paper complements the portfolio beautifully). Couldn’t recommend this product enough and look forward to spending some money with the Colonel after Christmas.

  131. I have nothing but good things to say about my purchase. I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend and I must say I was a bit worried it would not arrive in time. However…….shipping was super quick. The portfolio is way beyond what I expected! The leather is beautiful and there’s so many details on the product itself that really show the craftsmanship that went into making it. I honestly could not be more pleased. The service, shipping, packaging were all wonderful and I will definitely be ordering from CL again.

  133. CLASSY! That sums up the customer service, the product and the packaging, but still I’ll elaborate a little. I can’t recall the last time I enjoyed opening a package this much and I’m the giver, not the receiver. I purchased this for my son who was recently elected as a state representative to use for note taking while in session. No doubt it can hold it’s own in the state capitol!

  134. I purchased the #18 portfolio for my girlfriend for Christmas at her request. I ended up giving it to her early because her “pleather” portfolio fell apart. I was incredibly impressed with the packaging (as a guy, that’s really saying something) and the extras included. She has been using it for a week now and has received several compliments already. I’ve got my eye on a front pocket wallet for myself now. Top notch company.

  137. Perfect portfolio. Great service. I have a No.20 that I use for absolutely everything. I added the No.18 for when I need to carry papers or agendas to a meeting. My only complaint is that the pocket is a little small for standard paper – so any standard papers will have bent edges. So, I think that this is most useful as a way to carry a full-sized pad of paper. This is a fantastic gift. One year ago, I gave this a No.18 to a friend, and he still thanks me all of the time.

  139. I received this porfolio model as a gift. It is personalized with my initials, and it is of excellent quality. I have now ordered one as a gift for a farewell at the office for someone being promoted to our Corporate offices. I am sure this will be a very stylish and one-of-a-kind gift. In my case, I always carry mine to meetings and trips, and it is always a topic of conversation. I am sure I will be seeing more around the office soon!

  140. This company exceeds expectations. A portfolio was a gift to me which I love and have enjoyed. I have also ordered a briefcase and 3 gift portfolios. The products are amazing and gifts you are proud to give. The service is the best I have ever experienced. Sometimes they send things the same day or the next day free of charge. They stand behind the quality and are always helpful. Great company!!

  141. This is my second portfolio – first was stolen in Hawaii. I have used this portfolio around the world. It’s elegance and ruggedness fit in any setting business or personal. A unique piece that when taken from a briefcase never fails to get second glances. Love every item from the Colonel.

The leather is soft, which makes it nice to hold while walking around or taking notes. The pen holder is simple but effective, and the pad holder keeps the paper firmly in place. This portfolio immediately projects professionalism and is constructed to last the length of my career. I could not be happier.

  151. Fantastic Portfolio
    I attend executive meetings almost on a daily basis, so the necessity for a reliable and aesthetically pleasing portfolio is priority for me. I found it difficult to achieve my expectations at the big box stores. I stumbled upon this gem passing through Lynville, and immediately fell in love with this portfolio! It is of the highest quality and I receive complements frequently.

    I have had my portfolio for about four to five years now and it continues to look better everyday with constant use. My boss you lives overseas loved it so much that I ordered him one and he gets comments from his foreign counterparts about the look and the quality. I would highly recommend this for anyone who uses a note pad. I too get comments all the time from peers asking where I got this and how they can order one. Can’t say enough about this product.

  154. Will Last a Lifetime
    I got a promotion and purchased the No. 18. I struggled between this model and legal size. Glad I made this purchase. I had my initials put on the portfolio…..it looks great. The quality is second to none. This is something that my kids will want one day.

    I was so impressed with the quality that I ordered the IPad 2 holder. Already looking forward to it. I was looking at a saddleback or king ranch briefcase….I’ll have to give col littleton a serious look now….. I can not stress the level of quality of the portfolio.

  155. Great!
    Have used many a portfolio of this size for years. However, I have never found one that I felt was a “keeper.” The Colonel’s No. 18, though, fits that bill. From the moment I opened the package and saw the portfolio I knew this one was different. Amazing leather, great character, functional, sturdy, attractive, simple design. I could go on and on. Just love it.

  156. Another Home Run!
    Due to the nature of my business i receive numerous Portfoilos each year. My wife got me the #18 Colonel Littleton for a gift as she was impressed with the quality. Think it will be the only one i will carry from now on. Received numerous compliments, and due to the uniqueness of the notepad, we ordered several replacements to keep the unique design for years to come.
    Thanks for another product that will be by my side for years!

  157. Fantastic gift
    My boyfriend will soon be attending law school, and I wanted to get him a Valentine’s gift that he could use for years to come. This portfolio will be a complete surprise to him, and I can’t wait to see his excitement when he opens the Col. Littleton box! My Dad, a businessman, is quite impressed by this gift and is dropping some pretty obvious hints that he’d really like one for himself, though he already has a leather Coach portfolio that he has used for years! These portfolios are truly that exceptional–and trust me, my Dad only likes quality, classic things. I did some extensive searching before purchasing this portfolio, and I believe it has the most unique character of anything else on the market. The leather is supple and beautiful, and my portfolio was a little bit more chocolate brown than the picture–which is wonderful, as it matches my boyfriend’s briefcase extremely well. The embossed initials are a perfect, classy touch. If you are at all considering this portfolio, I would highly recommend it. Also, on a slightly different note, the shipping was incredibly fast; I ordered this at 2:30 on Monday, it shipped (with personalization!) that day by 5:30, and it arrived on my doorstep at lunchtime on Wednesday. This won’t be my last Col. Littleton purchase. Thank you for a fantastic product and experience!

  161. Excellent Gift
    I’ve seen my dad give this portfolio as a gift for years now, but I didn’t know the story behind Col. Littleton until he gave it to my boyfriend for Christmas last year. My boyfriend and I were blown away when we first saw it – the presentation, the quality, and even the Moon Pie. This was the perfect gift. It shows the amount of respect between the two main men in my life, and it means a lot to me. I strongly recommend this as a gift for your colleagues, family members, and even your daughter’s boyfriend. Thanks Dad & Col. Littleton.

  162. HAD TO HAVE IT IN BOTH COLORS !!!
    I got the 18 Portfolio for Christmas in black since most of my stuff is black. I have given these as corporate gifts for several years and they have been so well recieved and appreciated. When I saw the latest 18’s in a more chocolate brown color, I just had to have one in brown too.
    I love everything I have ever gotten from The Colonel and am always proud to give or recieve these outstanding products.
    Keep up the wonderful work Colonel.

    I bought two of these – one as a gift, and one for me. This piece is awesome – I use it everyday and look forward to dragging it into meetings – this is much more than a folder.

  170. Leather is amazing
    This is the perfect portfolio for carrying around a pad and some loose documents. I work as an attorney, but rarely use legal size paper so this size was perfect for me. The strap has two adjustments which make it convenient for carrying up to 30 pages of documents in the portfolio instead of a briefcase. What I am most impressed with is the leather, it is a truly quality leather and it is aging beautifully. This was my first Col. Littleton purchase but it won’t be my last.

    Axel

  171. Design Could Be Improved
    Really well made and elegant portfolio. My only complaint is that the side pocket is slightly too small for loose papers and they will get crumpled on the side when a pen or pencil is in the holder.

Our Story

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
