Front Pocket Wallet with Fold-Over Flap

When I first designed the front pocket wallet, they all had the fold-over flap. Then, for a few years I only made wallets without the fold-over flap. Each style has its devotees; so being the nice guy I am, I decided to make everyone happy by making both.

If you’ve never carried one, I predict you’ll quickly become addicted to the ease and security of the front pocket wallet. It’s compact enough to carry in your front pocket, but large enough to hold folding money, driver’s license and two or three essential credit cards. When you think about it, what else do you really need?

Made of black, brown or saddle tan native American steer hide, tanned right here in Tennessee. Dry milled to achieve incredible softness. Lined in polished leather. Two pockets. Edge stitched. 3.9″ x 3″. Handmade in the Col. Littleton Workshop.

This item is also available in American Buffalo

Available in American Alligator as well.

  1. My wife bought the new front pocket wallet with fold-over flap for my 50th BD as a replacement to the original w/o flap that was at least 10 years old. The old one was worn slap out after a many sweat-soaked miles in my front pocket (it may have been washed a few times too!) At any rate the new one is a welcome replacement. Same Colonel quality for sure and it seems to be a skosh bigger in the card compartment which is welcomed upgrade as the “vintage” one had to be stretched to get all my other “necessaries” crammed in there. Looking forward to another 10+ years of not having anything in my back pocket.

  2. Just bought this fold-over front pocket wallet yesterday at the Colonel’s retail store in Lynnville, TN. I used to carry a traditional wallet in my back pocket, but gave it up 20 years ago and kept money and cards in my front pocket. I’ve noticed that the magnetic strips on my cards are eroding from rubbing together in my pocket so I started looking at card wallets online at the normal retail stores. What I found were over-priced products made of inferior materials. When my wife and I happened upon Colonel Littleton’s retail store and I saw this wallet I had to have it. I expect it to last for years if not decades. The leather is top-notch and the workmanship is excellent.

  3. Bought this as a gift. The shipping was extremely fast, even with the personalization. The leather is butter soft and such beautiful craftsmanship. This is truly the best company to buy something special that will be treasured.

  5. This is the 2nd wallet of this style, I have owned from Col. Littleton. The first one lasted me about 10 years, my Wife convinced me go ahead and purchase and I am so glad I did. I tried other wallets for my needs, but none equaled what I got with the Col. Littleton wallet. Perfect every time.

  6. I bought this wallet for my husband. He thinks of it as his special occasion wallet. It is well made and he likes the design.

  7. I received this wallet as a birthday gift yesterday and absolutely love it! The quality of this product is immediately evident when you take it out of the packaging. We have purchased several Colonel products over the years and this is another nice addition. American made, nice detailing, and Colonel’s unique touch will make this an everyday carry item that you’ll be able to pass down!

  8. I just received my new front pocket wallet and initially I was a little concerned about it’s ability to hold my cc’s. No worries, easily hold 7 cards and fits perfectly in front pocket. Love the size and hand of the wallet.

  9. Just received my front pocket with flap. I carry only 1 credit card, drivers license and couple of business cards and a little cash so it perfectly fits my needs. This wallet is STELLAR — the highest quality and beautifully made just like the other products I’ve purchased from the Colonel

  12. I don’t know what I ever did without this item. I keep any denomination of money #20 and over in my wallet, but once I break a $20 bill, it goes in my front pocket wallet. Until I had one, I just folded it up and stuck it in my pocket, but now it is organized and my bills don’t get “dog eared.” For those of us who are well organized and can’t stand disorder, a front pocket wallet is an invaluable item for a man of class! Lastly, our company worked with Col Littleton to add our company logo on the front. Well worth the money for this high quality item!

  13. Yes, the Colonel has out done himself again! For those of us men who do not want to lug around a bulky wallet but yet carry 10+ cards and a few dollars…..this is the one! American buffalo, will it ever wear out?

  14. Just received my wallet and looking forward to many years of use. The flap feature will be a welcome feature to help secure my cards and bills.

    Thanks for a great product!

  15. I’ve had this wallet for 7 years now. It has aged nicely, but is about to the point of replacement….probably because I’ve been hard on it without any up keep measures. I do however keep 15-20 cards in it on a daily basis, not the 2-3 stated on the product page.

  17. I have had one of these front pocket Wallets for going on 8 years now. I did have one stolen from me and if the statement I am about to type doesn’t speak loud enough for how much I think these wallets are worth I don’t know what will. I ordered a new front pocket wallet before I had my credit cards replaced that day. I believe that you can tell a lot about a man by the company he keeps and the products he indulges in. Many might see the price tag on some of your items and be a little taken aback but I have now had my second front pocket wallet for 6 years and there is not so much as a stitch out of place. The only thing that I have done to it over the years is once every 6 or 9 months I will use a little leather cleaner and put a little neutral leather polish on it. The polish has just helped me keep my keys which I have to take in and out of my pocket often from scoring the leather. I just received a No. 1 grip and No. 18 portfolio today and was beyond impressed. Always impeccable service. I now have to save up for the briefcase. These items are heirlooms. This may seem like I am dragging on and I may be but these are the best men’s products I have ever seen. They are American made and I can tell you if nothing else when you pick up a Col. Littleton product you know the people making it took pride in doing so. My hat is off to you all.

    I must say, every time I get a delivered order from this company I feel like a kid on Christmas! The amount of time and effort they put into just the packaging and notes (and Moon Pie of course) is amazing. I am a customer for life. This front wallet is fantastic, just the right size and very unique – even the leather smell takes me back to simpler time. Thanks Colonel Littleton and keep up the fantastic work!

  19. I ordered the front pocket wallet with flap and the #20 portfolio on Tuesday, Feb. 7th, received a really nice personalized email Wednesday, the 8th acknowledging the order from Judy and the product showed up as promised Friday, Feb. 10th in southeast Texas. There is a lot of attention given to the packaging & presentation when you get it. Each item is individually boxed, in a protective bag with literature about the products & the company. Then you get to the product, which is made with the absolute quality in mind. Both products exceeded my expectations, I absolutely love the size of the wallet and the softness of the leather, it held everything I wanted to carry with a little extra space. The portfolio is the perfect size for my intended purpose & will last multiple lifetimes. Now want to get a couple belts. Doing business with Colonel Littleton takes me back in time to when it was like doing business in small town America, quality products, fantastic service, with people that make you feel like a neighbor. Now going to enjoy my Moon Pie! Thanks, I’ll be back.

  20. I just received my front pocket wallet with the fold-over flap. First thing I did was looked in the gift bag and found the moon pie and coaster, Thank you very much for the gift’s. Then I read every card in the bag, then I opened the box my wallet was in and read every card in that box before I ever took my Wallet out of the very pretty sack it was in. after reading the cards it just made it feel more personal, not like something you would buy from any other company. Then my Wallet was just so nice, I could tell from the moment I saw it and held it that it was the highest quality front pocket wallet I have ever had and could tell I will get many years of service out of it. Just by this one item I have ordered I know I will be a return customer for years. I want to say Thank You Col Littleton and to your Staff. Tim

  21. Well Colonel, I received my front pocket wallet with the fold over flap exactly one week ago today. I wanted to give it a workout for a week before I left this note. It is, in a word, stellar. I currently have 8 bills and 10 cards in it. No, I don’t have 10 credit cards. That would not be fiscally prudent. Suffice it to say, that all necessary forms of legal, medical, financial and big-box store identification are contained therein. I had carried my previous front pocket wallet with a magnetic clip for 20 years before I decided a change was in order. I did more than a bunch of research before I chose this product. The swaying factors were the reviews, your youtube videos and your website demeanor. It didn’t hurt that you manufacture in a small town in the South. This wallet is everything I hoped it would be: light, compact, sturdy and beautiful. The packaging is flat-out genius. I have a man-crush on your company and will be a devout customer for the rest of my days.

  22. dtillinghast (verified owner) – January 13, 2017:

    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)
    Front Pocket Wallet with Fold-Over Flap – Brown

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

  23. Amazing Product. I received this wallet as a Christmas present in December 2015. In January 2016, I attended Army Basic Combat Training in Oklahoma. I kept my Driver’s License and CAC card in this wallet, and then kept the wallet in the left breast pocket of my OCP’s. I had this wallet on me every single day of Basic, it held up through thousands of push-ups, low crawling through mud, and many miles of ruck marching.

    I cannot adequately express the level of quality craftsmanship that must have gone into this product. I am getting married in September of 2017 and plan to purchase this wallet as a gift for my groomsman!

    You will not be disappointed with this purchase!

  24. You just don’t get this quality very often. I was blown away but not only that, but the amount of connection I got from the Colonel Littleton crew. They sent me a free coaster, catalog, product information, and why they do what they do. It’s been a great experience with the wallet, and the company.

  29. $60 for 2 pieces of leather stitched together!? Come on! It’s nothing special. Thankfully my wife returned it after I told her I could never use it knowing the damn thing cost $60. Not to mention my $10 wallet has lasted 15 years.

  30. I purchased this for my father. He was very pleased. I found the leather was very pliable and soft. It will certainly help with comfort. He seemed very fond of the leather scent. The packaging was pretty thoughtful. I enjoyed reading up on the history of the company. You know you found a great company when they provide great customer service.

  31. I ordered this with monogramming as a gift for Dad and I can’t wait to give it to him. I liked it so much, that if I hadn’t had it monogrammed, I might have kept it for myself! It is awesome! Unique, classy and definately not your mass produced wallet. I had a little issue initially but it was resolved immediately and a new wallet was at my front door two days later. You guys rock and so does this wallet! Thank you.

  32. I really like this wallet! I converted to wearing wallet in my front pocket around 10 years ago, and have always used regular wallets, and they have always felt way too large. I was very nervous this would be too minimal, and it is not at all. I currently have 6 credit cards, 3 business cards, and 6 bills and one folded check. all this fits fine.

    I feel like the opening for the bills should be on the other side if your right handed. I wonder if it could be made this way. Also, I think the stamp could be more minimal, with just the Col. Littleton stamp, and not the EST 1987, Front Pocket Wallet, *WARRENTED* LYNVILLE, TN USA.

    None the less, if this wears out, I will absolutely buy another one.

  33. I have used this wallet daily for the past 17 years and it is still going strong… highly recommended.

    I can not think of anything I own that has better craftsmanship. If this one is ever stolen I will be sure to buy another.

  38. I have been field testing this wallet for about 2 years now. I am 100% pleased with it. I love the slim design and tough but classy look. It fits well in any pocket, front our back. I have found myself cutting down on the extra clutter that I used to stuff my wallet with and this one holds everything that I NEED perfectly. As a bonus it has aged wonderfully with a patina and is buttery soft. I would recommend this wallet to anyone. Merry Christmas!

  39. I purchased this wallet for my brother after showing him my buffalo wallet without the flap. I raved about mine and he said without knowing they made it with a fold over flap that he would feel safer if it had a flap. So I bought him this wallet as a surprise. He was so happy he couldn’t believe I got it for him. He’s always complained about how big regular wallets are and has searched all over for something thin and small because he carries a few bills and 2-4 credit cards. Since he’s hated carrying wallets he forgotten them at home and had cards fall out and get lost. He loves this wallet, buy it!! He says the size is slim and he forgets he’s even carrying it.

  41. Just ordered my 2nd wallet I have just about worked out my old one, I have used every type wallet this is by far the most convenient ever no more bulge in back pocket.
    I Reccomend to anyone tired of old style wallets

    James

  42. This is the best wallet I’ve ever owned. Despite the thin profile, this wallet can hold both cash/bills and up to six or seven cards. I agree with others that the quality is unmatched and my wallet has held up extremely well over the past year. The flap adds a degree of security and nicely contains the contents of the wallet. For those seeking a high quality thin profile wallet, this product is the definitively the best on the market.

  43. I admit it. I’m a wallet addict. I own a lot of wallets and this one is my favorite. I have 3 of these front pocket wallets now….the first was the brown one with the rivet on the money flap. The second was the brown one without the rivet and I just bought the black one, again without the rivet. It’s just simple – one pocket, one money area and a flap that secures it all. I also love the smell of this leather. i don’t know what the Colonel does but this smells better than Saddleback Leather. I hope this lasts forever….if it doesn’t, then I hope the Colonel will sell this wallet forever!

    Also want to give a shout out to Customer Service. They are terrific.

  44. Another terrific product from the Colonel. I have zombie hands from an illness. i needed a simple way to hold my cash and credit cards/ids that was also secure. The folder over front pocket wallet fits the bill perfectly. My cash fits very neatly in the front and the pocket holds 7 to 8 cards and/or id. Oh yeah, my zombie fingers and hands have far less problem extracting cash or cards from this well designed wallet. Fits neatly in front pants pocket or my jacket pocket. Another winner from the Colonel.

  45. Well, what can I say? This product is very nice and the customer service is even better. I can fit six cards and plenty of bills in this wallet. The leather is high quality and feels great. Fast turn around time and free shipping as well. I highly recommend the product and the company!

  46. This is by far the best wallet I’ve ever owned. It accomodates 6 or 7 cards and a few bills with no problem whatsoever. I’ve had it for probably a couple of years, and it only seems to get better with age. Worth every penny of the $60!!

  47. I’ve only had this wallet for about 4 months, but overall this wallet has met all of my expectations. It feels very nice and soft. The quality in the stitching was very good, I felt justified in spending $68. I currently have around 5-8 cards and 6 bills and I have no trouble whatsoever with space. In addition to that, it still maintains a very slim profile. All in all I love this.

  49. Fantastic
    I can’t get over how much I love my front pocket wallet. I have been using a regular back pocket wallet for my entire life and I am 59 years old. I wish I had done this earlier. The quality of this wallet is unmatched. The stitching and color is perfect. You can tell that this wallet will stand up to the test of time. I usually carry about 8 bills and 5 to 6 cards (including drivers license) and this wallet handles it perfectly. Don’t think I will ever go back to a back pocket wallet again. Takes a few days to get used to it being in your front pocket but it’s worth it. Thanks Col. Littleton for a great product.

    Rusty

  50. Best wallet I’ve ever owned
    I have had this wallet (or at least a very similar Col Littleton model with the fold over flap) for the past 15 years, and have used it daily. It has held up perfectly — it has been washed several times and gotten soaked in water many more and remains as handsome and durable as the day I received it as a gift.

    I would recommend it to anybody, it will be the last wallet you ever buy.

  51. -Excellent Wallets-
    I’ve owned a lot of wallets over the years and I’ve finally found the right one! I first ordered the front pocket wallet without the fold over, after I received this one I got even more interested in the fold over so I ordered it a few days later. Well, this is the finest front pocket wallet I’ve ever owned and I’ve owned plenty of them. I can carry 5 cards easily and enough cash to get me by. This is also one great looking wallet, 1 st. Class all the way. BTW, the ladies I talked to set 1 st. Class also, they went out of the way to treat me with all the courtesy and respect you could hope for and they are very knowledgeable about the products. I’ll be ordering again soon and I wish Col. Littleton and his staff the best.

  52. Quick little wallet
    Even I do not use this as designed (front pocket wallet) it works for those in the minimalist wallet market. I usually carry a few cards and tid-bit of cash this one fits the bill. The leather come softened and ready to roll with not much break-in required.

  53. LOSE the pin!!
    I LOVE the Front Pocket Wallet! Super slim, premium leather, and a style I absolutely dig!

    My only complaint is the PIN used on this version of the Front Pocket Wallet. Because of the pin credit cards/cards do not seat centered in the wallet and cash is a bit tougher to seat fully in the wallet. Also the Flap cannot sit centered due to the tension caused by the pin. Even if it meant double stitching or perhaps a stronger thread I’d prefer it without the pin so it does not affect the overall symmetry of the wallet.

    This wallet, MINUS the pin, is my ideal wallet.

    I still think highly of this wallet, but the lack of symmetry due to the pin is a slight eyesore for those who are a bit nit picky for a finer product as such.

    Nathan

  54. Good Prodi
    I like the front pocket wallet with fold over flap but would recommend the Colonel widen the wallet by a quarter inch and then you have a truly practical life long product. Wallet is too narrow and folded over bills stick out of the side. Quarter inch more of leather would be perfect. Make the change and I will buy another as I have purchased quite a few products from your company and have been very pleased.

  55. Prepare to answer lots of questions
    I’ve had mine for years and people have commented on it from British Columbia to the Bahamas. The older it gets, the more handsome it looks.

  58. Very excellent product
    I purchased this wallet and was glad I did. Was very hesitant at first but this is the last wallet I will be buying. Very happy with it and the leather craftsmanship is excellent. I carry 8 cards which include: several credit, license, work id and health insurance. I am able to carry 5-one dollar, 2-five dollar, 2-ten dollar and 2-twenty dollar bills with out it being to bulky. Customer service is #1 and Sandy goes beyond the call of duty to help you. If you decide to purchase it, you will definitely not regret it.

  59. Good wallet with just a bit of room for improvement
    I purchased my wallet a couple of months ago but decided to “test” it before I posted a review. Since I’ve been carrying it around for some weeks now, I wanted to post my thoughts.

    First, the positive:

    1) Shipping was fast and the wallet was packaged very nicely. If this had been a gift for someone, I could have kept it in its box and probably just slapped on a bow.

    2) At least from the front, it’s a very good looking wallet – right down to the stitching. It looks exactly like the pictures on the site, and seems to be put together very solidly. It even has that “new” leather smell to it.

    3) It has done a very good job of holding my cards and some money in it. Right now I’m carrying 5 cards/ID and a slip of paper, and has kept it all securely in the wallet while maintaining a nice, slim profile. It allows me to keep the essentials on hand without a massive wallet bulging in my pocket.

    There are a few minor negatives that kept me from giving a full 5 stars.

    1) I was very disappointed to flip over the wallet and see a huge “Col Littleton” brand covering half the backside. While I understand that most products have some product branding on it, having so much space taken up by the company name, logo, EST Date, and location really detracts from the wallet’s look.

    2) The wallet isn’t great for carrying anything more then a minimal amount of cash. If I have a small number of bills, I can fit them in the front pocket without difficulty, but if I have a large amount it’s hard to fold up and fit in without causing an obvious bulge. Maybe I just need to learn to fold my bills better but it can be a bit of a pain to deal with.

    All in all I’m happy with my purchase and would recommend it to someone looking for a minimalist wallet.

  60. Great Product & Service
    I just received my front pocket wallet with the fold-over flap. Since I wanted my initials on the wallet, I was surprised that it shipped the same day I ordered it. I’m a long-time marketing guy, so I was very impressed with the packaging, printed materials and the moon pie that came with the wallet. Very cool. I’m even more impressed with the quality of the wallet. I love how it looks, how it fits in my pocket and the fact that it comfortably holds my cash, 5 credit cards, three insurance cards and my driver’s license. Thank you for a great product and prompt service.

  61. Slim and secure
    I purchased a brown front pocket wallet with fold-over flap a while back. I splurged and had my initials added at the time of purchase. I am completely pleased. It is slim enough to almost be unnoticable in my front pocket, regardless if i’m wearing jeans or khakis. It hold all of the cards I need and enough cash to last a week. It has aged beautifully. It has gotten a little darker over time and conformed to the stack of cards I keep in it. I wish I could post a photo showing how it looks compared to a new one to give an idea of how well it has held up. All in all, I highly recommend this if you are at all thinking of getting a high quality front pocket wallet.

    Bryan

  62. Awesome
    I really love my front pocket wallet with the fold over flap. I bought it about a year ago and it has held up well and looks new, despite the abuse I put it through. Most of all, it keeps everything secure and tight, giving me the confidence I need that nothing important is falling out. I easily fit my license, registration, insurance card, credit card and Starbucks card in the back and in the front fold I still have plenty of room for a wod of cash. I would highly recommend it. The quality of this wallet exceeded my expectations. You’ll love it!!

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.
