Take Flight with the New Bentley Tote

In this premium version of a longtime customer favorite, Colonel has upgraded the Bentley Tote to our beautifully textured, rich, deep Tobacco Brown American Buffalo and trimmed it in Vintage Brown American Steerhide for a pleasing contrast.  However, his most significant design change is the addition of a protective leather closure strap, appointed with a classic nickel-plated brass “tuck-style” closure which may be engraved with three initials.

Construction and Design

Large enough for files and folders, iPad*, laptop, books, magazines, phone, lunch – everything but the kitchen sink.  Two interior black canvas side pockets run the full inside width of the purse – one accommodates business cards, pens, electronic devices and both are secured by leather tabs and ball-stud closures.

Colonel designed the Bentley Tote for multi-faceted usage.  Although it’s great for plane trips and all-day shopping excursions, many fans of the Bentley Tote use it as a business bag.  It’s roomy enough for laptops and especially convenient for realtors, designers and other professionals.  You’ll enjoy carrying it anywhere.  Our full-grain, dry-milled American Buffalo is vegetable tanned, then tumbled in wooden barrels to achieve a soft, lived-in look and feel.  The American Steerhide contrasting trim gives it body so it stands alone without tipping over and also contributes to the overall aesthetic.

In addition to the nickel-plated brass “tuck-style” closure, the bag sports nickel-plated, decorative buckles on the side gussets.  Inside leather loop for attaching your keys.

“I designed the Bentley Tote with the look and feel of luxury and classic sophistication in mind as well as functionality. There’s no way you’ll carry this bag without someone commenting on it.  No matter where your daily journey takes you, you’ll go in style and with the feeling of confidence that comes with carrying a quality accessory.”

Whether you’re headed to the office, to the market, to the game or for a day and evening in the city, you’ll love the generous capacity and versatility of this stunning bag.  Inside dimensions are 10”H x 13.5”W x 5”D.  Product packaging includes a protective cotton canvas, drawstring dust bag with the Col. Littleton Cameo Logo.  Superbly made in the Col. Littleton Workshop, Lynnville, TN USA.

When it comes to American Buffalo, Colonel says,
“Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.”

  1. This bag was a surprise gift from my husband, and it has exceeded my expectations. I have a growing collection of small-production handmade leather bags, and none are as refined and eye-catching as my Bentley. I will say that I am quite petite (5’1” 110lbs) so the strap drop works well as a shoulder-carry for me, but may not work for everyone. I am the type who carries a composition notebook, a physical planner (travelers notebook), maybe a book or some knitting, so I like a bag with plenty of space. The organization in this bag is phenomenal: the canvas is firm and sturdy, with enough pockets and dividers for all of my things. The leather is so soft and shiny, I can’t wait to see it mature and patina with use; the straps started softening after just a couple carries. This bag smells like a new car—I can’t get over it and I hope it never fades. I was/am so impressed by this first Col. Littleton bag that I already ordered my second… don’t tell my husband 😉 I HIGHLY recommend Colonel Littleton!


  2. When I received my Bentley tote, I was thrilled. Nothing like having a bag you can always depend on. The craftsmanship of it is that of no other. Sturdy, roomy, and beautiful to look at. I will never carry another bag unless it’s another Col. Littleton product.


  3. I love my Bentley bag. It is perfect for finding everything. The pockets carry my sunglasses and readers, the sections carry my cell and keys. No more switching purses! This Bentley is my go to bag.

  4. I did all of my Christmas shopping at Col. Littleton. The quality is second to none. Very happy with all of my choices.

  5. I love everything about this beautiful all-purpose tote – the color, the design, the interior pockets, the heft, the smell… I’ve only had it a short time, but I’ve used it for work, play, and everyday. I even dressed it up with a silk scarf tied to the handle for a special event. This is my new go-to bag. It’s roomy enough to cart around a camera and laptop, but not too big to use as a regular purse. Thanks, Colonel!


  6. I actually went to the store to buy a smaller leather tote bag, but when I saw the black and brown Bentley I had to have it. It is absolutely beautiful! It’s the perfect size to carry my surface pro, files and anything else I need to take to work without being bulky. I love it!


  7. My Bentley tote arrived earlier this week and it is beautiful. I love the deep brown leather and the sturdy construction. It is a wonderful everyday tote with many pockets and dividers. I am also able to take it to work with me as it will fit my files and my planner. It is easy to hold, very comfortable in my hand. Thank you for the lovely packaging and the treat, and for making such an outstanding tote!

  8. I bought a cross-body bag called the Trekker from Colonel Littleton in their Lynnville store some years ago – that bag has been amazing and all I wear. I’ve lost count of the compliments I get on it and it’s awesome to have a bag that’s so unique. I’ve wanted this Bentley tote for quite some time – in fact, I had a hard time deciding between the Trekker and this tote at the time. I’m so glad I got the Trekker since they no longer sell it and now I finally have my Bentley! Couldn’t be more thrilled!! The quality of these bags are second to none. They are not a trend, they are a lifetime.

  9. I have wanted this bag for a long time and finally purchased it. It is very beautiful and very functional. Large enough to throw my camera in so I always have it with me for those unexpected shots. I think I see the Ashley bag in my future!


  10. I have this tote in vintage brown and I love it because of its style and function. However, Unlike my other Colonel Littleton purchases which have all been 5’s, I have given this bag a 4 because of its weight. I won’t take it shopping because it gets very heavy. Also, some stitching is coming loose on one of the straps. It isn’t bad yet but I fear it may continue.


  11. I definitely got my wish! My daughter bought me the Bentley Tote for Christmas and I absolutely love it! We had visited Col. Littleton’s a few years ago and I have been wanting a purse from there ever since. So thankful for this beautiful purse and the craftsmanship is top notch! Thank you so much!



  12. Just received my Black/Tan Bentley as a gift from my wonderful husband! I love the craftsmanship! I have coveted a Colonel Littleton bag for years! The interior is so roomy and has a compartment for everything! Thank you Colonel for this design! Perfection! Cannot wait for my next purchase!


  13. The Bentley Tote is what I would call the perfect shoulder bag! I get so many compliments on this bag. It’s beautiful and definitely a conversation piece!


  14. I love my Bentley tote! It was a gift from my husband, and I use it as a briefcase. I love it! It holds everything I need to carry, and it does it with style. I receive compliments on it quite often.


  15. I purchased a version from the Private Stock collection in the rugged leather with a brand. Leather is thick and sturdy, and attention to detail is first class. Use it for a briefcase (fits small laptops, tablets and standard size padfolios), and travel tote. Also great tote for liquor or wine bottles. Would highly recommend for man or woman. Ordered by phone and service was excellent.


  16. We took a day-trip to Lynnville today–have been wanting to shop “in person” at your store for a long time. How excited I am! I bought this Bentley bag, in the discontinued Saddle Tan color. After catalog-wishing for months, I had my mind made up with the Wayfarer Tote, but wow….after seeing the Bentley bag in person, it was a no-brainer for me! I like easy-access in purse styles, and this bag did it for me. All the awesome pockets and dividers are a plus, as I’m an “all my ducks in a row” kind of person. I feel like I bought a family heirloom treasure, and I can’t wait to carry it! (My husband is making me wait ’til Christmas morning. ;o)

    Your store is sooo worth the trip, and everyone who assisted us went over-and-beyond the call of duty. Thank you for a grand shopping day!

  17. I bought my wife a handbag — not this one — that the Colonel no longer carries. It is incredibly good looking.The Colonel replaced the bag completely when one strap fell off while not in use. The service from Colonel Littleton was excellent. I wanted to leave this review somewhere, even though this was not the bag! Great job Colonel!


  18. This bag is great! I love how the leather continues to get softer the longer I have it! I use mine as my purse everyday and it holds everything I need and has plenty of room for extras. The small pockets inside are perfect for my phone and lipstick and the larger ones help keep things organized. The only things I would add are some “feet” and a closure.Even without those two things I love this bag!!


  19. Very impressed!
    I love this bag! It is a great size for everyday use. The leather is thick and sturdy, great quality. The straps are just long enough to fit over the shoulder. I also love the pockets inside…they make it very easy to tote an ipad along with my other things. I would have preferred some kind of closure, but I still really love it.

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.
