  1. I got this as a gift for my boyfriend who recently graduated law school. This is seriously one of the best purchases I have ever made online. The gift wasn’t even for me and I cried opening the little gift that they include in the package. It reminded me of my grandfather or dad sending me a gift. Also the portfolio is amazing quality and looks even better than the pictures. Thank you Col. Littleton!!

  2. I am so pleased with this portfolio. Extremely high quality, attractive, and exactly what I needed. Legal size portfolios are hard to find! Thank you to Valerie, who gave it to me for Christmas!


  3. I ordered this for my partner who has been looking for a full legal-sized portfolio for some time. I gave this to him for Christmas, and he LOVES it! As I was looking for something made in the USA, this was perfect!
    The customer service was wonderful too – prompt response, free monogramming, fast delivery and the package included some nice extra gifts.
    All in all, very happy and pleased that I found this company!

  7. This is a very nice portfolio! Well made and beautiful. I also received a Moon Pie, hadn’t had one of these in years.
    Very Good Product!


  8. I just received my portfolio, and it is a true work of art. The craftsmanship is superb. My son lives in Culleoka, Tn. Next visit to Tennessee, I will definitely visit the store. Col. Littleton – well done.

  9. I have owned my 18L portfolio for several years now and still get compliments at meetings. It has held up to everyday treatment and still looks great. Every so often I use Colonel Littleton’s Leather Care to re-nourish the leather and then it’s back to work. My one wish for this portfolio would be for a taller pocket to hold note cards instead of business cards.


  10. I just got mine today. I was very impressed with the presentation, the coaster, and the moonpie. I am excited to use it at work. The only thing I would ask they change is to add a third leather strip in case you decide to use a different sized legal pad. Other than that, 5 stars!


  11. I am an attorney and could not find anything large enough to carry my legal pad- until now. The construction is second to none.

  12. I have bought two 18L legal portfolios, one for my attorney brother and one for me. These items are well-designed, are made of outstanding leather and burnish beautifully over time. First rate gift for self or bro!

  13. This portfolio has been my saving grace. I was always misplacing important documents (birth certificates, land deeds, car titles, legal documents, etc). Then I bought this superbly crafted portfolio.

    EVERY important piece of paper goes into this handsome piece of leather and my wife no longer has to “give me the what fer!” for misplacing important papers.

    You will be pleased with this timeless classic. You need it…


  14. Excellent.


  15. The legal profession is rich with history and nostalgia, and this portfolio perfectly encapsulates the aura of the profession. As the smell of the leather wafts into your nostrils, one is instantly transported back to a time where noble barristers argued zealously for their clients. The finish of the leather is unparalleled, and it’s size is a throwback to the days when lawyers used a unique size of paper. Occasionally, one will run across courts that still use legal sized folders, and this portfolio will be perfect for that occasion. This portfolio is a wonderful accoutrement for an attorney!

  16. Beautiful. I ordered this as an engraved gift for a Law school graduation. It is well constructed and I LOVE that it is MADE IN THE USA. I ordered this on Sunday evening and received it Wednesday evening. Hope the recipient likes it as much as I do!

  17. I purchased this to take with me on a job interview that i am very excited about. First impressions go a long way and I know this portfolio will not go unnoticed. It is everything that I had hoped for and I received it very quickly. Looking forward to using it daily at my new job!

  18. I purchased this gorgeous portfolio for my law student son as he nears graduation. It is unique, elegant and should provide him with an extra ego boost as begins his career.

  19. Had a glitch online b/c ordered two but it wouldn’t let me do two personalizations. Telephone service took care of it. LOVE IT. But want to order another for a Christmas present, so wish I got a frequent flyer discount!


  20. This portfolio is even better than I imagined upon receiving it. Having just started my own coaching and consulting business it is a conversational piece along with being of great quality. It adds a personal and warm touch, along with a sense of quality to a meeting with a client that is needed when a tablet won’t do. Absolutely love it.


  21. This was my first ever purchase from the Colonel; bought this one probably fifteen(15)years ago. I took it to a meeting recently at a new client of mine in Cleveland, OH and it caused quite a stir. It has a great patina from many years of constant use and still looks great. Everyone wanted to know where I got it and I was proud to tell them it was made in Tennessee.


  22. I am a Professional Land Surveyor. I received the legal-sized portfolio as a gift (after “hinting” for months that I wanted one), lol. Every time I bring the L-18 portfolio to the courthouse Recorder of Deeds’ Office, the title searchers, attorneys, and abstract folks notice it and compliment me about it. It’s perfect for deeds, legal contracts, maps, mortgages, etc., accommodating the 14″ long documents. It’s well-received at every meeting I attend. Thanks, Colonel for thinking of us “legal”-sized folks. Our World isn’t an 8-1/2″ x 11″ World! Bravo, Colonel! An excellent product at an amazing price!


  23. Great piece
    I purchased this as a gift for my brother who is an attorney. He carries every day and always receives compliments on it with people asking him where he got the piece. It was a great gift and one that will be well loved for years to come.


  24. Wonderful product and service
    I received this as a law school graduation gift. I learned it was sent out the same day it was ordered, which is AMAZING considering it was personalized with my initials and inspected. Also, the purchaser received a personal email from a representative that day. It arrived in 3-4 days and is amazing. I took it into an interview and caught my interviewer eying it more than once. It is everything I hoped it would be: classy yet not pretentious, durable and sturdy but arrives looking like it already has a story. I am certain I will use this for years and years. Very excited. Very impressed. Very thankful to the Col. for the service and product. This is a buyer’s remorse-proof product. I can’t say enough about it. Thank you.


  25. Spectacular!!!!
    This was the first purchase I made from Col. I am extremely impressed! I purchased it for my oldest son who is a Capitain in the Army and a Law student. I was looking for some thing special. Something that would stand the test of time, that he could look back on this time of his life and remember every time he picked this portfolio up. Presentation – Spectacular! Quality – Spectacular! Customer Service – Spectacular! MADE IN THE USA – SPECTACULAR!!!! Well worth the investment.
    I have placed another order for my new iPad and have 9 other items in my wishlist.
    Thank you Colonel and Staff. SPECTACULAR!


  26. Excellent
    The portfolio is wonderful. On the very first day I used it, I had three people compliment me, and ask me where they could purchase one.


  27. I carry the No. 18 everywhere that i preach the word of God. It is always expressive and give me the comfort of knowing that I have an excellent product. Always getting comments “man that is nice” and it looks great!
    Excellent! I saw the No. 18 on our Commanding General’s desk and I knew at that moment that I wanted to own one just like it. Love it!


  28. Classy and Awesome
    I take this with me everywhere. As a business owner i stuff all kinds of things in here. With the double strap I can hold other documents and such, it makes for a quick brief case for the unexpected meeting. I almost always get a comment about it, if no comment I catch them “eyeing” my portfolio. Thank you for making such a great product.
    On a side note the service from the Col. is just amazing.

    Thanks one and all!

Our Story

Our Warranty
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. 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.

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.
