    I purchased this journal as a gift and I am very happy with the quality and craftsmanship. It even came with extra cards. I know that this piece will be used for many years to come. The customer service is first rate and a lot of care is taken with the packaging. It is so nice that this came in a box, which isn’t very common these days. Very happy with the journal and order all around.

    I have several products and they are all beautiful, of top quality, and age beautifully. I carry this journal with me daily. If a thought comes to me I put it on one of the index cards and keep phone numbers and other job related information in the journal. I have had several other brands of leather products but the Colonel’s is by far the most affordable and higher quality of the much more expensive brands. Not enough words to describe the quality of leather and craftsmanship in every piece.

    I just received my journal and I just love the way it looks and feels (even that leather smell is wonderful). I take lots of notes and can’t wait to start carrying this around and putting it to use. I have always been pleased with all of the products I have bought from the Colonel and like the personal touch they provide. And , as always, thanks for the Moonpie.

    Stopped by the store on our way to Florida & even got to meet the Colonel! Have made several purchases from the company & they have such great customer service. They just make you feel like you’ve known them forever. Such great & quality products. Purchased #23 pocket journal to go along with my #27 journal purchased in store. Plan on doing a lot more business with Colonel & company!

    I purchased my first product from the Colonel so long ago, I can’t remember the date. It was this pocket journal and I have carried it for going on at least ten years! The journal has stood up so well that I carry it even though I purchased a second one with the brass tag on it. Find that the first one is the more comfortable and feel that it is the daily carry in the courthouse. It is the best.

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. 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.

Our Craftsmanship

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.
