No. 20 Portfolio in American Buffalo

“In today’s fast-paced world, there’s just too much to remember. And, when the brain hits overload, there’s no easy, add-on memory chip solution. I decided an easily transportable travel-size portfolio was just what I needed to jot down ideas or anything else I wanted to remember,” says the Colonel. This portfolio is the ideal size for your bedside table, automobile or for shopping excursions.

American Buffalo Leather. Solid brass post closure. Edge stitched. Inside front pocket and center pencil slot. Pencil included. Accommodates a standard 5”x 8” ruled pad. However, it comes with the Colonel’s own specially-designed Memorandum Pad which may be reordered. Front may be personalized with three initials in lower right corner. Made in the Col. Littleton Workshop.

9” H x 6” W closed.

American Buffalo – “Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.” ~ Colonel (Read more about American Buffalo Leather here)

  1. My first purchase, and it far exceeds what I expected in a portfolio. Beautifully designed with the leather being very soft and unique in appearance. This could very easily be passed down as a family heirloom, generation to generation. A quality portfolio, at a fair price and made in America, what more could one ask for.


  2. I must admit I’m hooked on Colonel Littleton products now. The customer service is incredible. The little gifts included and the incredible shipping time are truly second mile service. You can’t help but want to support a business like this. As for the product itself, it is outstanding. This is my second American Buffalo purchase and I still cannot get over the smell and the quality of the leather. This is my bedside journal and I am confident it will last for many years. Thanks again Colonel Littleton.

  3. I bought this product in late 2017 on my first visit to the Colonel’s shop. It is a prized possession. My wife and I drove up to Lynnville from Pulaski just to look around, but when I saw this pad, I had to have it. The buffalo hide is substantial yet supple. I use it every day and it still looks as nice as when I bought it, probably nicer. If you must purchase this online because of distance or time constraints, then by all means, do it. However, if you are lucky enough to live in a reasonable proximity, do yourself a favor and go have a look around. Get a burger at Soda Pop Junction or a hand pie from Lynnville Pie Company, it’s a great little town! I have a good friend who grew up in Columbia, TN, and now lives up in Washington. Whenever he’s back, we make a point to meet up in Lynnville.


  4. I purchased this portfolio as a Christmas gift for my son-in-law. I am impressed with the material and workmanship. The packaging is first class as well. Would definitely recommend any product from Colonel Littleton.

  5. I ordered two American Buffalo Portfolio’s for two of my sons, who just graduated from college in the last two years. Both of my sons are high school teachers who do their best to set a precedent amongst their students. The quality & craftsmanship of your product will not only be noticed by the student population but their co-workers as well; which in turn compliments the goals my two sons have in mind.

  7. Bought one of these to use for work. I prefer a small sized notebook, and this is perfect. The leather is beautiful, the construction is perfect, and it functions just like you would want. It is making my note take much more enjoyable.

  8. I have eyes these for years and my wonderful wife got me this as an anniversary gift. I have enjoyed using it at work. It is very rugged and durable yet still stands out in a meeting. I historically used quad ruled composition notebooks so I’m currently on the hunt for a refill that would fit it and stay bound. All in all I am very pleased with it.


  9. High quality buffalo hide with natural markings. Will last a lifetime and then some.

  14. I just got my number 20 Buffalo hide portfolio. It is replacing my stolen number 20 cow hide portfolio. I loved my original one so much I replaced it with this one and love the textures of the hide from the buffalo. So as much I loved my old one but someone loved it more hence stolen. My new buffalo portfolio will be guarded with my life. Such great quality in the Colonels products. Repeat customer for life.

  19. Your description of this leather is on target and the portfolio is typical of the workmanship I’ve enjoyed in other Colonel Littelton products. I truly believe this buffalo would have been proud for its hide to be used in a beautiful product that will be used for many years. I enjoy quality and meaningful products.

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.
