Handmade, Vintage Inspired Leather Briefcase

The No. 41 Commander Briefcase is unique and sophisticated – projecting an air of authority while it carries your important gear. This attaché is more ambassador than anything; its striking personality will clear the path and demand attention wherever you venture. It will never be just another bag in the crowd.

If you are only carrying two or three file folders and a legal pad, this is not your bag. This workhorse was designed to carry lots of gear – laptop, iPad®, portfolio, notebook, tech gear, etc. It’s robust and tenacious, just like you.

“The No. 41 Commander Briefcase was inspired by the restoration of my 1941 Dodge Command Car.  It took me about five years to personally restore the Command Car; and about a year within that time frame to design the briefcase. As I was restoring straps and buckling gear I began to think about how I would interpret that into a bag, and the No. 41 Commander Briefcase came clearly into focus.” – Colonel Littleton

Construction & Features

The bag is constructed in the Col. Littleton Workshop in Lynnville TN, USA with the same full-grain leather Colonel used to upholster the seats in the Command Car . . . a combination of our polished leather for strength and durability and our dry-milled leather to add softness where needed. 

Fitted with solid brass hardware and a distinctive copper rod under the top flap to help evenly distribute the weight of the bag when fully loaded. A rigid bottom with brass feet keeps the briefcase upright. Two inside dividers, one with pockets, makes business cards, pens, phone, laptop, etc. easily accessible and organized. Serial number on the back pocket denotes exclusivity of the bag. 

Once again, the Colonel has pulled out all the stops with the design of this beautiful, luxury case. A few more features of functionality and style include: 

  • Overall exterior dimensions are 16 ⅞”W x 13”H x 5”D at bottom
  • Interior dimensions are 16.5”W x 12”H x 5”D at bottom
  • Unique Y-Strap front with a cinch buckle closure
  • Leather handle and removable shoulder strap
  • Adjustable shoulder strap with comfort pad: 34.5” – 42.5”
  • Large 13 ⅞”W x 6 ⅞”H back pocket decorated with a serial-numbered pommel shield
  • Two inside dividers and pockets for business cards, pens, phone, etc.
  • May be personalized with three block initials on brass plate under flap
  • Product packaging includes protective cotton canvas dust bag with Colonel Cameo logo.
  • Warranted

With this bag you’ll generate a commanding presence wherever you go.

  1. On a road trip, we stopped at the store only to run into the Colonel. As my 30th Anniversary was coming up, my wife picked this one out.
    This bag replaced one that I have carried for more than a dozen years. I use this one every single day and I receive compliments daily.
    The features, craftsmanship, attention to detail are second to none. #MoonePie

  2. Consistent with Col. Littleton philosophy, the No. 41 Commander Briefcase was not something I needed, but it is definitely something I wanted. I was replacing a bag I have used for several years and wanted to treat myself since it is a daily use item. I was not disappointed. Looks and construction are superior and I could not be happier with my purchase. It is a great item and money well spent. I could not be happier.

  3. My No. 41 arrived Friday – BEAUTIFUL!
    Since I’m not going to the office or traveling currently, I’m going to load it and carry it around the house to start breaking it in.
    I have carried the No. 43 Mailbag for probably 10 years and love it – it has broken into perfection. The main reason I am replacing it for my day-to-day bag, is that I will start traveling even more and like the stand up feature, along with the pockets.
    I expect it to turn quite a few heads in the airports and offices I visit.

  4. I purchased the No. 41 as a replacement for a briefcase I had carried for 15 years. I loved the bag I had previously, but I quickly am realizing that the 41 will likely be the last briefcase I ever purchase. It is incredibly well built and meticulous in its appearance.

    Fantastic product. Worth every penny.

Our Story

Our Warranty

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.

Our Leather

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.
