“I’m a list maker/note taker during every daylight hour and sometimes in the middle of the night. You never know when a million dollar idea might tiptoe across your cerebral cortex, so I’m set on ready. Use it as a travel notebook, journal, diary, executive notebook, gift, to-do list holder, etc. I’ve used this journal every day for many years.”

  1. Just received my #23 Pocket Journal and could not be more pleased with the quality and workmanship of the product. As an Inspector by trade, I tend to pay attention to the fine details. Shipping was very fast, and the product was nicely packaged. It also came with the standard Chocolate Moon Pie as we have grown to expect from The Colonel. Thank you for another great leather product.

  2. To be honest, I hadn’t used this wonderful journal for a while- but in my quest to go back to a more analogue approach I started using it again and I was immediately reminded how perfect this is. I ordered some refills and have been recording some thoughts and lists of things I need to do. Your products are so well made and your customer service is excellent- thanks for making such great products!

  3. I am so impressed!! I purchased this beautiful pocket journal for my husband and it was delivered in two days even with personalization. It is gorgeous…and the Colonel Littleton staff goes above and beyond to make every order so special!

  4. Purchased and delivered flawlessly and timely even with personalization. Product quality as always is exceptional, service and delivery is “over the top.”

  5. Quality is unsurpassed. Perfect size for my needs. You always get a little more than you expect from Colonel Littleton. Not my first product purchased hopefully not my last.

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.
