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.”

    Excellent bag – as always from CL. A gift for dear friend who just earned her PhD. Workmanship is perfect and the bag is as advertised and described. Just never have to worry about buying a CL product. MN

    I love purses! I’ve been a purse snob though for a very long time – only carrying two brands of a certain quality and reputation. My sweet man noticed I have rather high standards and he has never dared purchase a purse for me BEFORE discovering Colonel Littleton! He admired a Colonel Littleton belt on a co-worker, went on the website to investigate, commented he loved THE story and I would, too. He was correct as you all do things the way we were raised to do everything – do it the right way with the right tools and the best materials possible. Your attention to every detail is evidenced in every stitch, every hide, every pocket. Trent pulled the trigger with great confidence when he ordered me my very own BENTLEY, complete with a personalized front closure! To say my BENTLEY is THE most beautiful, BEST constructed, elegant, classic purse/bag EVER is such an understatement! Knowing the hands that created this bag are those of a conscientious craftsman from a small company in a small town only adds to the true value overall. Not everyone who notices my Bentley will recognize it is a Colonel Littleton but those who notice will indeed do so learning about this great company immediately upon comment! I leave this review now as I need to order my Honey another No. 4 belt! Bless you and order yourself a Colonel Littleton – Life is too short for regrets!

    Ok for years, I bought CL items for myself. I couldn’t get enough of them. Shame on me for not considering my wife. Well that changed with the purchase of Bentley Tote. I literally with one purchase of the American Buffalo totes have converted my wife to a Colonel customer. She would often hear and see how much I enjoyed my Colonel items. You should have seen her open her package upon its arrival. She was so happy to receive her tote. She is a school teacher. The tote is gorgeous. It’s equally as impressive for what it can hold. Looks plus utility. Colonel, you have done it again. You now have two loyal customers in this household. Gator Nick

    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!

    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.

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.
