No. 1943 Navigator Briefcase – Limited Edition Tobacco Brown American Buffalo

This briefcases is one-of-a-kind, serial numbered and personally signed by the Colonel. Last one available in this Limited Edition First Run.

The No. 1943 Navigator Briefcase inherently exudes confidence, but it is in a different league all together when it is handmade out of our new Tobacco American Buffalo leather. The bags in this Limited Edition release of four Navigator Briefcases are rich, dark, warm and stunningly handsome…and One-Of-A-Kind indeed.

As with our classic Navigator Briefcase, this Limited Edition Collection has unmatched construction, materials, and functionality. You’ll never need another bag. Roomy, expandable, WWII inspired, and sleek enough for everyday carry. This bag garners attention – watch heads turn as you carry the Navigator to and from the office, meetings, airport, and everywhere your travels take you.

Personalize the brass oval plate on the lower front, adding to the exclusivity of the bag.

“My office is inundated with relics from the past, and I’m probably chief among them. Military artifacts especially seem to find a home with me. I looked at an old, official Army-issue World War II Navigator’s Bag (circa 1943) in my office for years. The design seemed timeless; and with all the compartments inside, I thought it would be a perfect fit for today’s busy executive.” 

– Colonel Littleton

Construction & Features

Handmade and individually inspected at the Col. Littleton Workshop in Lynnville TN, USA with full-grain, Tobacco Brown American Buffalo leather. This leather has been vegetable-tanned and hand-tanned to a smooth finish. Minimal processing allows the bag’s natural leather to develop its own character and patina. This executive leather briefcase will only look better with time and regular use.

This bag anticipates your every need. The body of the briefcase expands with adjustable side gussets to accommodate necessities. Straps with workable buckles securely wrap around the bag and also have snap closures for easy access. Two interior dividers give you a total of three deep pockets. A leather pocket on the front of the first divider holds your iPad®, pen, stylus, business cards, etc. The adjustable, detachable shoulder strap is an upgrade to this bag’s ancestors – WWII navigators would surely have appreciated this convenience in addition to the handle for longer treks.

Perhaps the most exclusive feature of this incredible leather briefcase is the custom designed, solid brass closure – designed and manufactured by Colonel Littleton himself on a kick press from the 1800’s.

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.
