  1. I use this everyday and it is an integral part of my life. I love this portfolio!


  2. I bought this for my left handed son for work. He loves it. You can order refills for the note pads. It is great. It looks wonderful and holds up great. The No. 18 is perfect for any left handed person that is looking for a professional journal.


  3. I received this for Father’s Day and love it. Great overall construction and one of the only left handed portfolios I’ve seen. The only thing I would change is to get rid of the thick metal emblem on the business card holder. It creates a high spot/bulge (especially if you have business cards in there) and is really unnecessary. There’s a perfect impression/stamping on the back of the portfolio that could very easily go there and wouldn’t add to the thickness if you’re looking to put your name (Colonel Littleton) on the inside too.


  4. I’m blown away by the quality of this product! In a world of ever-common portfolios & notebooks, this piece will be a conversation starter. Add the left-handed arrangement and you have a truly unique piece. Other left-handed office products tend to be cheap, cheesy, and/or way overpriced when compared to the right-handed counterparts. At first I was skeptical at the price, but upon receiving it I was immediately proud & happy that I purchased this portfolio.

  5. Be warned, this is NOT a stiff backed portfolio. It is like trying to write on a magazine if you are working on “the go” like I do. I went back to my Office Max portfolio immediately. It looks great, it smells great…that is where it ends for me. I would not recommend this product for use away from a desk.


  6. I received my portfolio yesterday and I was just as pleased with it as I was with my belt and front pocket wallet. Quality, life-long products. Thanks for keeping us left-handers in mind!

  7. Really nice to have a left-hand model! Of course the materials and craftsmanship are of the highest order – typical of the Colonel. Basically outstanding! Thank you.

  8. Gift from my wife. She is a great lady. Superb quality. Pulled it out of my briefcase for the first time today and everyone at the table wanted to know if there was a right hand version. I expect this will outlast me.


  9. My family gave me this portfolio for my birthday and it is amazing. The craftsmanship is far superior to other products and the quality of the leather is top shelf. Thank you for making such a great product for left handed people.

  10. This is my first left-handed portfolio, and because it’s so well made, probably my last. I love it!

  11. Recently purchased the left handed No. 18 portfolio, and it’s amazing. It’s nice to have something made for us lefties that’s made with this great of quality. You can see how much workmanship is in each product and I will definitely be buying more products in the future.

  12. I received the No.18 Portfolio as a Christmas gift from my wife. The workmanship and attention to detail is impeccable. I love that it is a left-handed portfolio and that included my initials on the front. This gift was one of the things that helped make this a very special Christmas.


  13. Simply put, if your thinking about purchasing this, do it! One of the last companies left that makes high quality products and provides sincere customer service.


  14. There are certain universal characteristics of any purchase made from Col. Littleton: the item will be uniquely American in design, the leather will be superb and will age gracefully, the packaging and presentation will be without equal, and the shopping experience itself will stress free and relaxed.
    I will admit to having a weakness for fine leather goods and an addiction to leather portfolios specifically; I own at least a dozen, all from well-known suppliers, but the Col. has topped them all with his left- handed model. After years of searching for the perfect portfolio the Col. has created for me, my “grail” portfolio, the combination of all the virtues of a Col. Littleton purchase noted above with a “leftie” model! This is a true left-handed model, not one of the fake models that require you to turn a right-handed model upside-down to write lefty, but a real, honest-to-goodness product created for us forgotten lefties. I bought the portfolio on the Col.’s birthday and he gave his customers a birthday present of free embossing as well, so I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the Col. and wish him a Happy Birthday, and add, may you thrive for as least as long as you leather goods last, thereby ensuring you a very, very long life.

  15. A perfect gift for our pastor. Thank you for making making products for lefties . I’ve bought a lot of the Colonels leather goods. My favorite is the leather work apron I wear everyday .

  16. The quality, feel, smell, and attention to detail of this notebook are handcrafted perfection! This was a birthday gift for my left-handed fiance and he was elated. Everything from the packaging to the stitching was done well. The leather book was inside of a Littleton stamped canvas drawstring bag, within a nice gift box (also stamped). It was sent on time with a free coaster, catalog, and moon pie! We were both very happy with our experience and we consider this the first (not the last) piece to our collection. Thank you!!!

  20. In today’s world, finding a quality item that is meant to stand the test of time is rare. This portfolio is beautiful, will do a great job, and should last for years. Thanks for thinking of us left-handed folk.

  21. I just received the #18 left handed portfolio as a birthday gift from my wife. I am impressed by the quality and level of detailed workmanship. Thanks for making the left handed version!


  22. I purchased the Left Hand No. 18 portfolio this past Friday at the store in Lynnville. As with all items I have acquire from Col. Littleton, the quality is unmatched. The leather and workmanship is excellent. Thanks to Sarah at the store for her assistance with getting my portfolio and wife’s book embossed. Looking forward to my next visit.


  23. I recently completed the second corporate gift purchase order and included the left handed version for myself. After finally getting used to opening it the righ way it is fantastic. I use the Col products as gifts to employees and customers and universally get great feedback


  24. My wife is a lefty and a year ago was promoted at her job. I decided to celebrate her promotion anniversary with a No. 18 left handed portfolio and purchased some additional refills of paper. When she opened the box and saw the craftsmanship, her initials and the beauty of this portfolio, tears came out. She loves the texture, beauty and function of this. Great job and thank you for your craftsmanship.

  25. When asked by my awesome wife what I wanted for Christmas I asked for the #18 left handed portfolio. It is everything you promised and more it is supple and awesome to use I have no need for another portfolio. Thanks for the moon pie!


  26. I purchased this portfolio for my birthday. I am of the age where I know what I like better than anyone else. It is outstanding. The leather and crafting are perfect. I am left handed and it is difficult to write on a pad in a right handed portfolio. This does the trick. I have 4 initials, which the Colonel accommodated. The portfolio will work with a traditional notepad as well as the pads sold with it. You will not be disappointed.

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.
