  4. Received my order today, out standing quality and beauty. Thank you. Gorgeous.


  5. For me Colonel Littleton has sentimental value. My husband bought me my first leather binder with my initials on the front. That was twenty four years ago and I still have it. It has been there during my writing career. Over the years I have added two portfolios like above. They stand the test of time. One of the portfolios we got at the Grovepark Inn in Asheville. It’s a place where famous people have stayed. One of them is F Scott Fitzgerald. When I write in my leather Littleton, I feel like a vintage writer or a grand lady from the Biltmore. It has a timeless feel that’s special to me. Thank you!

  6. I absolutely love the portfolio. The materials and workmanship are extremely high quality, the portfolio is every bit as functional, and it’s simply a pleasure to use. The portfolio was shipped the day it was ordered, and, in addition to an automated order confirmation, I received a separate thank-you email from a Customer Support Specialist. I’m a very happy customer.

  7. The quality of of this product, it’s professional appearance, and it’s in box/out of box presentation is nothing less than first class. I will be purchasing many more products from the Colonel in the future. Great job Colonel Littleton, to you and your crew.


  8. Great product with superb craftsmanship! This is my second Col Littleton product but certainly not my last! Plus, they sent me a MoonPie in my shipment … awesome!

    Thank you


  9. Great store and wonderful people! I bought this as a gift for my son’s birthday, and he loved the quality leather (he has good taste!). I appreciate that all of the goods here look so unique. Leather is very supple and well made- it’s hard to find such nice leather goods these days. Definitely will be back!


  10. I wish this site would allow half stars because I rate this portfolio at 4.5 stars. Other than a couple of minor critiques it is practically a perfect portfolio. It’s a nice feeling to throw away the company provided bags and work gear to upgrade to a more personalized and quality item that you take into meetings. The full-grain leather and demure brass hardware screams quality as all other Colonel Littleton products. The only critiques I would give this portfolio are the cardholder and spine pencil loop. The cardholder is quite tight thus limiting the portfolio to carrying just a few business cards. The pencil loop is designed for the thickness of a pencil rather than a pen. For business use a pencil is rarely used, and I am afraid that after pulling and pushing a thicker pen in and out of the strap it will eventually tear apart. Other than those two minor issues this is a remarkable portfolio. Thanks CL!

  11. I bought this iPad portfolio for my daughter last Christmas and she loves it. She is an engineer and she feels so professional when carrying and using it. My nephew saw it and loved it so he also purchased one.


  12. Excellent portfolio the buffalo leather adds great character. The paper is great also.


  13. Top quality product. I expect it to last a lifetime. Great service, delivered on time.

  14. From the natural leather, to the design and functionality, this case has been a perfect addition to my daily travel to and from work. In addition, its uniqueness is a discussion-starter, which has helped to break the ice at meetings.

  16. I purchased a No 18 portfolio with iPad feature while on a visit to your store. The portfolio is very well made and your customer service was fantastic. Joyce was a pleasure working with and very helpful. Looking forward to buying some items as gifts.
    Thank you!

  17. I just received my No. 20 portfolio and it is beautiful. I could not be more pleased with the quality and service.


  18. This is a superbly crafted portfolio. The materials and craftsmanship are outstanding. A solid value that is sure to perform and look great for many years.

  19. I was looking for a nice portfolio for a new job. It was nice to find and support a TN company with such a fine product (made in TN). I made the trip to Lynnville. The staff in both stores were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to make the decision to buy once seeing the quality and holding the product. I will be back, already trying to decide with other products I need. Thank you


  20. I bought this as a gift to myself.
    Visited the store to make my choice and was glad that I did.
    Wonderful product quality and quality people!
    Thanks for the Portfolio and the memories of a morning well spent!


  21. My colleague and I ordered this portfolio, and we are now spoiled. The quality of the craftsmanship is impressive, and the combination of the paper which comes with it as well as the feel of the leather elevates our note-taking abilities. What a great value!


  22. Beautiful leather. Perfect size and room for my tablet. Very functional. Plan to leave it for my son when I pass on.


  23. Received this in black with tan accent as a gift last April. I use it everyday and love it. Holds my iPad and still closes great. A very unique item to carry with lots of positive comments.


  24. More pretty than useful to me. I put this on my Xmas list after seeing (but not handling) a seatmate’s on a business flight, and it sure is lovely. But the leather is so thin and soft/flexible that it does almost nothing to help writing on the pad in your lap – it will bend and flex around your leg or in your lap and not create a flat writing surface at all unless you’re at a table/desk, so if you’re a strap-hanger in a large meeting, you’re out of luck with this folio. And the two-strap method of holding the pad also creates lumps in the page you’re writing on as you get down in pages. For the same money I wish I’d asked for the rival product that a coworker has, which is stiffer for writing on and has a sleeve-style pad holder (but no snap closure). Oh well.


  25. With the tablet portfolio, a pen, my tablet– I have everything I need to conduct business away from my cluttered desk. I get compliments on my vintage brown portfolio and it makes me look important when I walk down the street with it. Great personal service makes doing business with the Colonel a pleasure.

  26. We have ordered a number of these already for corporate gifts and will continue to do so. Excellent product. Super friendly staff to help with any questions in ordering process. Fast shipping. Beautiful presentation/packaging.

  27. Portfolio exceeds expectations. Clearly designed and crafted to last a lifetime. I’m always looking for ways to consolidate my work tools and this helps combine two bulky items into one, easy to care tool. And nothing smells better than new leather! So glad I found your site and your awesome products.

  28. I bought this as a gift for my wife. She absolutely loves it! Now I wish I had ordered one for myself! The quality is fantastic, the packaging and customer service was outstanding. . . . now I want one too!

  29. Received my No. 18 tablet padfolio today, just a few days after I ordered it. Lisa helped me with my order and she is awesome! I could not be happier with the customer service, presentation, and product. I have no doubt the padfolio will last forever and be passed down. The presentation is nice: the box, bag it is in, moon pie, etc. I expected a first class product and the extra details are a really nice touch.
    The padfolio is perfect and exactly as advertised, first class all the way. I looked at several other high-end padfolios before finding Col Littleton, I am very happy that I waited until I found the right one. I want something in buffalo next and plan on making a trek to the store at some point.
    The hardest part is deciding which padfolio to get but once you do, you will get an heirloom that is made the old fashioned way! Thank you Lisa and Col Littleton for a great business and product!

  30. I received #18 right handed from my wife as a Christmas gift and I was blown away! I needed a product that would not only protect my iPad but allow me to carry paper notes. As a resident of rural Lynnville and acquaintance of the “Colonel ” it was a “no brainer” for Charlene to shop local and purchase the best. Thank you Colonel “Garry” Littleton for your quality craftsmanship and friendship. I am looking forward to a lifetime of use from my #18. Phil Budd


  31. I was promoted at work a few months ago and now find myself attending more meetings than ever before and struggling to keep notes, handouts, and follow-up requests organized. I found the No. 18 while browsing online and it was love at first sight. After having to endure my pining for it for several months now, my husband just bought it for me for Christmas. It arrived a day early despite a treacherous snow storm! My husband allowed me about 2 minutes with it before taking it and wrapoing it to place under the tree. It is beautiful (even better than the photos depict!) and it is driving me crazy to have wait another week before I can put it to work! I am thrilled with quality! I insisted that he have it monogrammed so no one else tries to swipe it, and now that I have seen it I’m glad I did! My husband has even begun hinting that he might be able to put one to use at some point in the future. I ordered refill pads for it as well and will be taking those in to begin using immediately. Thank you Colonel Littleton for great products and helping my husband with successful gifting this Christmas!!


  32. I recently receive my portfolio. It has amazing craftsmanship! I’m a first time buyer from colonel littleton. I’ve been shopping around for a padfolio for the past year and just happen to come across online colonel littleton products and saw the portfolio with the tablet holder, which I can say it is amazing addition for something you can use for a daily business use. Most padfolio/portfolio available are not as functional and looks a bit cheap quality leather but not the item I received from colonel littleton. I’m very pleased with the intricate detail packaging and the little gifts included in the package are very thoughtful. I gotten the black portfolio to use for business interview and daily use and looks very classy and simplistic.

  33. My wife and I visit the store often are impressed with your product lines. Our son’s 30th birthday is next month and we’ve been debating on what to get him that would be memorable for us and him. With help from Sarah we decided on the #18 portfolio, Sarah was extremely helpful with the purchase and shipping and we know another portfolio he’ll never have to purchase because it wore out!!

    Thank you,
    Glen & Debbie


  34. Fantastic product. The quality of the leather is great. It’s an immediate attention grabber. It’s very lightweight but sturdy. Best portfolio I’ve ever had.

  35. overtime I walk into a meeting with my No. 18 portfolio people ask me who makes it. they always grab it and some even smell it and comment on the leather smell. i like how the iPad fits snug so it doesn’t feel like i am carrying a bulky portfolio.

    thanks colonel


  36. Another fantastic product! In the typical Col. Littleton fashion the product was much more
    than expected..
    No more Ghurka,Tumi or Hartmann leather goods for me.
    The Col. Sets the benchmark

  37. A joy to carry and use daily. Perfect for the iPad without being geeky. Adds quality of life to an otherwise digital world. Would definitely stock up on pads of paper as well. Just ordered another box. A great combination of old and new as the Col. does so well with class.


  38. I have been using my #18 for a year now and love it. Ipad is well protected and easily accessible. The pen holder has stretched a little but is still quite secure. Would have liked to see a slot to hold in the legal pad in instead of the two straps,however they function very well as designed. I am hard on equipment and this portfolio just takes it everyday,and gets more character and better looking. Get comments on how nice it looks often.

  39. I am an attorney in Los Angeles, CA. Unfortunately, perception is key to success in my neck of the woods. My Col. Littleton portfolio demands compliments and inquiries regularly. It’s unique, classy, and is–without surprise–of absolute highest quality. I recommend this to any working professional as functional and a talking point.


  40. For years, I have used cheap, unimpressive portfolios that never have the space needed for papers or an iPad. I received this one as a gift. It is not only functional but so nicely made. I’m glad it is personalized–it keeps my co-workers from claiming it for themselves.


  41. My son sent my wife the link for the Colonel Littleton website and kept telling her how great the products were and how much I would love this as a Christmas present. I sure raised a wonderfully smart boy! I love the #18 portfolio! I use both the iPad and the Microsoft Surface. Both fit well in the portfolio although with the key board attached to the surface it is a bit tight. I will be buying the Navigator briefcase for my birthday this year!!


  42. This thing is feeling awesome . I did a small review on YouTube if you are on the fence with getting one. I will tell you the craftsmanship is second to none . The leather is so soft and smooth . This thing is doing a great job and putting in some work . Every time I step into a meeting I get ugly looks because everybody wants my Ipadfolio . Thanks Colonel Littleton. Put this in your browser

  43. I received this as a Christmas gift from my girlfriend and I love it! It is both beautiful and functional. The personalization adds a nice custom touch and the materials and workmanship will be impressive in any situation.


  44. We purchased this gift for our boss. While some may have thought it was a little much to spend on a portfolio, any doubt was erased as soon as it arrived (very quickly might I add). It’s practical, beautiful and comes very well packaged! Would definitely order again!

  45. I absolutely love the simplicity and practical design of this Portfolio and the place it provides for my iPad. I have owned the Dbl and non-iPad Portfolio’s as well and this is my favorite for the size and function. Great product!

  46. I liked my previous order of the No. 20 portfolio so much that I ordered the No. 18 with tablet holder. Much like all of Col. Littletons products this doesn’t disappoint. The attention to detail and craftsmanship is really awesome. This would be a great client gift.

  48. We purchased two of these for our President and VP last year for Christmas gifts. They have used them all year and the portfolios still look great. Really well made!!!


  49. I’ve had several padfolios before that are cheap and “leather.” This is by far my favorite. It’s made of real leather and smells like it. I get compliments all the time about how great it looks. It;s quality craftsmanship and quality materials.


  50. Just received my portfolio and I couldn’t be happier. As with all of the Colonel’s products, the leather is amazing. The function of this portfolio is great, especially with the tablet pocket. Also, the notepad is excellent. I look forward to many years of use.

  51. I have had this portfolio about 6 months. It is everything i hoped it would be. Furthermore, when I travel my iPad fits very neatly into the space designed to hold the iPad. The Colonel’s speciacially designed paper is also the way to go. I have tried other pad refills and am only satisfied with the Colonels specially designed pads. Another terrific product for the Colonel!

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.
