  2. My wife gave me a number 18 portfolio for Christmas – what a wonderful surprise. It is wonderful and I already use it every day. The quality could not be better. It’s so great and I ordered a set of paper for it.


  3. This portfolio is absolutely stunning! It was my introduction to Col. Littleton products and I have to say I will be a returning customer.


  4. Portfolio looks great, stitching is excellent, very well made. Buffalo leather looks fantastic. Highly Recommended.

  5. I finally broke down and bought this portfolio, after suffering through many a poor folio. Not only is this well-constructed, and versatile, it also holds far more than I thought it would. Well-built, good looking, and a good size. I’m a huge fan.

  6. This is a beautiful hand made portfolio!

    I am looking forward to it aging nicely with use.

  7. This portfolio is fantastic! My last leather portfolio quickly darkened due to use, and stained from the occasional splash of water. Not Col. Littleton’s American Buffalo portfolio! It remains like new. I also own one of his briefcases and several small carryalls. His products are authentic, of superior quality and beautiful. If I could buy everything the Colonel makes I would!


  8. Love my No. 18 portfolio. It is well crafted and works perfectly for me who is often on the road and needs to transport documents. Also I love the leather coasters they send with my items. Just a nice touch!


  9. I was surprised at the lack of market for quality portfolios and during my research I stumbled upon Col. Littleton. I ordered the Buffalo No. 18 and early awaited it in the mail. The turnaround time even with engraving was outstanding! I had the portfolio in two business days. When I received the package in the mail I was surprised to find some extra goodies in addition to the portfolio. The little details are well presented and made the ordering experience thoroughly enjoyable. As for the portfolio itself the quality is outstanding and the smell…oh the smell! You can’t beat it! If you’re still reading this do yourself a favor and order one now! I will definitely be back for more.

  10. I use a portfolio many times during the day and find that most don’t hold up to that type of use. So finding a product like #18 Portfolio in Buffalo was a real find and knowing this product will be one that will last a long time, Col Littleton for the win!!


  11. Easy order and good customer service follow up. Great product (quality of buffalo hide and craftsmanship of finished piece). Only drawback: I wish I had been given the choice of a more rustic hide, like the one I just saw in the Private Stock section.
    Overall, very pleased with the purchase.

  12. Purchased this a few weeks ago. I love it! Excellent quality, as usual. Super classy looking. It’s perfect!


  13. Very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. Appreciate the fact it is a single piece of leather. Looks great.

  14. This was the first Colonel Littleton item that I have. It was given to me as a gift. I absolutely love it. It got me hooked. I’ve since bought other items for my self and as gifts. Great products created by a great company. Customer service is 2nd to NONE.


  15. I purchased this gift for a special client and I was very impressed with the outcome. The presentation of this portfolio is fantastic. It comes in a nice box and the portfolio itself is inside of a really neat sleeve with a drawstring. Last but not least, the shipping was FAST! I will continue purchasing these as client gifts! Thank you!

    I ordered the No. 18 Portfolio – American Buffalo this is what I’ve been looking for. I searched for about a month before I stumble upon the Col’s web site. After a few clicks, I knew immediately this one is coming home with me. The quality of the leather and artwork exceeded my expectation. As a matter of fact, I’m so impressed I’m ordering one for my wife. 10 STARS
    Thank you, Colonel,

  17. Received this as a gift. My first piece, of many I’m sure. Great quality and everyone at work loves it.


  18. I struggled with what to get for our son who is graduating from Mississippi State University in May. I wanted a gift that he could actually use and love at the same time. The #18 Portfolio in Buffalo is AMAZING! The quality is beautiful and if you love the smell of fresh leather…then it will be love at first smell!! I am so excited to give our son this gift. For a young man about to start a job in corporate America, what a great first impression he will make on his new customers and peers. Thank you, Colonel for making a Mama happy!!


  19. My husband and I have been married for almost nine years and the traditional gift is leather. What better gift than an American Buffalo Portfolio from Colonel Littleton. Because I was so excited I gave it to him a little early and he loved it! Thank you, Colonel Littleton for making such “stellar” products and making it easy to make the love of my life a very happy man.


  20. My No. 18 is a topic of discussion in every meeting.


  21. This is an absolute piece of leather artwork. I recently received a promotion at work and wanted a portfolio that was both professional and unique. Well, this surpassed my wildest expectations. Everyone who has seen this portfolio has asked where I got it from. If I ever lose this thing, I’ll most definitely buy another one!


  22. I was given the No. 18 portfolio as a gift two months ago and it led to the purchase of a briefcase and pencil holder. I truly enjoy the look and feel of the product but have been amazed at the customer service and little touches that the team at Col. Littleton employs…from the email updates about order status to the Moon Pies and coasters. It is such a pleasure to do business with a company that is dedicated to high quality products, genuine customer service and an honest desire to delight! I look forward to many additional purchases in the future!


  23. Recently purchased this as a self-gift for my birthday. I love the quality of the portfolio, but I also enjoyed all the other goodies that came with the product. The portfolio is a great size, I love the paper that comes with it, and it’s the only thing I use to take notes on now!
    Plus the moon pie was a good touch! Next, I’ll get one for an iPad!


  24. Have had this for about two years and use it all of the time- carry it every day. I get more compliments on this all of the time.


  25. Simply designed and well thought out impressively constructed folio. The buffalo animal skin has wonderful heft and texture to it that is very satisfying in the hand, and it looks like it will outlast me. I can’t add anything more to what other reviewers have said about the look of this leather.


  26. Simple, elegant, well designed and perfectly executed. Definitely a keeper. Sturdy in buffalo, slim enough to easily carry alone or in the No. 43 aft slot. Wonderful product from a first class company. Thanks.


  27. bought this about 2 months ago and have had so many comments about it. I love it.very beautiful piece of leather and very functional


  28. Ordered 5 of these portfolios for employee excellence awards. Excellent quality and craftsmanship. Exactly what we were looking for and delighted with our purchase. Have no doubt that our employees will love it!!!


  29. The craftsmanship is superb! This tablet is very practical and the buffalo leather adds to its beauty. Shipping and handling was superior to anything that I ever experienced.
    I have bought several of Col Littleton’s products and I have never been disappointed.

  30. I purchased on of these for my girlfriend for Christmas this past year… I ended up liking it so much I bought another for myself! The buffalo leather is beautiful. Very handsome addition for any working guy or gal.

  31. This piece of art is amazing! Mine has been all over the country, in countless meetings, it has been rained on, stuffed into travel bags, left in the sun for hours while making notes off of blue prints on the hoods of pick up trucks, fell off my tool box on to the highway, and it still has held up as it was promised. I have resorted to keeping a thin college ruled notebook inside due to the legal pad isn’t quite what I need anymore. The moment this company offers a 2″ 3 ring binder with side pockets is the moment I make my next purchase. This is my third Littleton product, I would recommend them to anyone wanting to invest in something they can take pride in.


  32. I had just received my package with much anticipation. Upon receipt it came in very noticeable packaging. Classy and rich feeling. The portfolio came in a beautiful bag and everything I expected in a quality product. It was everything I expected and more…I am very excited to start using it. The feel, smell and its look is original, authentic and classy…I Love it!

  33. I recently received the No. 5 Clinch Belt and No. 18 Portfolio – American Buffalo as a graduation gift. The packaging and presentation conveys to the consumer that they are indeed receiving a beautiful and special piece, crafted with a respect for tradition – something which is ignored by the vast majority of companies these days.The buffalo leather grain is much more pronounced and impressive than the regular cow leather, the fibers are much thicker and more widely spaced, making the extra $16.50 for the American Buffalo portfolio well worth the expenditure. It goes without saying that each and every product will last several lifetimes, with normal wear and tear, and can become a family heirloom to be handed down and cherished for many generations to come. I use this portfolio everyday in the office. The attention to detail such as the cardholder, pencil loop, and two snap buttons, which give you the flexibility of carrying a few or a lot of documents, all make this a staple of any business man’s day-to-day work. I have received many compliments and inquiries on where I purchased such an incredibly-crafted and beautiful portfolio. Whether it comes to durability or aesthetics, this portfolio far surpasses any portfolio on the market. 10/10, Colonel Littleton – there is not a person that roams this earth to whom I would not recommend this product or company.


  34. We visited the lovely town of Lynnville today! I purchased this beautiful buffalo portfolio to use for business. The texture and unique characteristics of each item is perfection! Thank you for this classic (beautiful) product that will be of use for many, many years! Everything about our experience in the store was top notch. We can’t wait to come back!

  36. This is the last portfolio I will ever need (or want). What a joy to use every day! I have my initials in every creation I have from the Colonel, and they are such a smart addition to all of them. This portfolio has a great feel to it, and is warm and inviting in a way that other “business” portfolios are not. And every Col. Littleton piece is also a memory piece, of the unique setting of the Colonel’s stores in Lynnville, and the wonderful people who occupy them.


  37. We ordered 40 of these for Christmas gifts & were really impressed with the quality. The portfolios were shipped within a day of ordering. The quality of the leather was amazing and very soft. Extremely happy with the product & will order from again.


  38. Was impressed with a friend’s portfolio and decided to try my own. The quality is unbeatable!…and the buffalo leather is a classic. I am confident that it can not be surpassed in either!

  41. I recently purchased the No. 18 Portfolio-American Buffalo, and this product is one of the best I have found. This was my first purchase from Colonel Littleton, and first impressions surpassed expectations. This purchase was exactly why I invested in a Made in the USA product. The thought that went into packaging, presentation, and customer appreciation is above and beyond most businesses today. Colonel Littleton presents a product that makes you feel that you received more than just a portfolio. The portfolio arrived just as advertised, and arrived the next business day. Upon opening the package, I was extremely impressed by how great the buffalo leather looked. The craftsmanship of the portfolio was excellent. This product was crafted to be used, and built to last. The stitching was flawless. The lighter color of the leather was exactly what I had hoped it would be. The pencil and writing pad added more character to the product, and gave the portfolio an executive feel. The layout of the writing pad will help me keep organized with tasks and notes. I chose American Buffalo because of the history behind one of the greatest symbols in America. Colonel Littleton captured the very essence of American history while adapting it to modern times. Most portfolios on the market are glued and cheaply manufactured, and do not last long. This was by far the best investment I have made for a portfolio. Thank you Colonel Littleton for a wonderful product, and going above and beyond for customer satisfaction!

  42. This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for; the quality is over the top; and the price is tolerable. It’s an item I hope to hang on to forever.

    More than anything else, however, this is a great place to do business. My daughter and I made a side trip to Lynnville Saturday while going from (A) to (B) and it was more than worth the time it took – SUPER people, great store(s), and a genuinely relaxing place to spend an afternoon.


  43. A very good friend of mine gave me the No. 18 portfolio and I use it daily at work! It is all class and makes for an excellent executive gift. I take it with me to meetings, conferences, etc. and absolutely love it. I also have the No. 12 portfolio which is great for when you simply need a small notepad with you and is very portable. The Colonel and his team have been making high quality products for years and I’m a big fan. I grew up in Nashville and have lived in Chicago for many years. Having the Colonel’s products allow me to take a little piece of Tennessee with me everywhere I go! Thank you!

  44. Just received this portfolio in the mail. It is beautiful!!!! Purchased it for my son’s birthday/graduation gift. His eyes lit up when he pulled it out of the nice bag. He could only say, “WOW”! He looked it over and replied “It’s so nice”. He said not only would he be able to use it in college, but also once he gets out and has a job. The texture and feel of the portfolio is next to none I have looked at. The quality of the packaging was superior and makes a great presentation as a gift. I have purchased several items from Colonel Littleton and he never disappoints! I’ll definitely be coming back!!!!!


  45. Just received my No. 18 portfolio in American Buffalo and it is absolutely gorgeous. I didn’t know what to expect as I had never handled a Buffalo product before. The texture and character is amazing. It’s a little lighter in color than the polished brown leather that the Colonel offers.
    It has an amazing polished-like look to it.
    Very happy with this beautiful product. The Colonel did good…again!!

  46. just received this tablet customized for my business partner’s Christmas gift. Craftsmanship exceeded expectations, however, the shipping, correspondence, and package delivery was the best I’ve ever experienced. Will continue to purchase personalized gifts for many friends and family based on this overall experience.

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.
