  2. I bought my wife the 48XL phone holster. It is personalized with her initials. It is well constructed and she loves the belt feature. I plan to visit the site again. I have a 60L phone holster. (verified owner)

  3. Generous size to add some cash and credit cards to leave the wallet home. Can even use for sunglasses. The leather says “man attached”.

  4. I am so glad that I came across Colonel Littleton online when I was searching for a leather case for my new iPhone 12 Pro. This case is rather expensive but it’s worth every penny. The Leather is the finest available and the stitching is beautifully done. The case is roomy enough for me to remove my iphone easily and include a cleaning cloth for the screen. I have no doubt that this case will last for many years. I only wish that Colonel Littleton made a messenger bag.

  5. Greetings,
    Combing the www I found the ideal horizontal belt loop leather holster for my iPhone. The few similar cases I came across from other manufacturers weren’t as well crafted or large enough to accommodate my smart device with a protective case. I appreciate the roominess that the No. 48 Extra Large Leather Phone Holster affords which makes it easy to retrieve.
    During an earlier career I retailed vintage international military surplus where I discovered leather pouches and cases of extraordinary quality not readily available to consumers nowadays, until now.

    Thank you Col. Littleton,

  6. I recently upgraded to an iPhone 12 pro max and the started looking for a case! I like a holster type case and all I could find was Made in China plastic. I googled large leather cell phone case and the first thing I saw was in Tennessee so I went there and a whole world of wondrous leather things came before my eyes including the number 48 XL phone holster which was exactly what I was looking for so I ordered it and sat back to wait for it’s arrival! When it came it was like a Christmas package I used to get when I was overseas in the Navy with all sorts of quaint and timely and frivolous things made to brighten my day on the other side of the world! Needless to say I am your customer when I need leather in any form! The mini moon pie brought back memories of my early years based on the Georgia coast where I learned the wonders of an R/C Cola and a moon pie from a neighbor! Thank you for your realism and your sense of humor in addition to fine products! I look forward to my next want which will be soon! Jim Weatherly

  7. After my wife and I saw an episode on TN PBS about Col. Littleton we looked on the website and found several items we were interested in so we made a day trip to visit. I bought the 48XL phone holster, had it embossed with my initials and my wife purchased two bracelets, also with engravings. We were very impressed with the friendly staff and how quickly our purchases were ready. We plan to visit again.


  8. Ordered a 48XL phone holster and very pleased with it and the excellent craftsmanship. This is the third phone holster I have ordered over the years and highly recommend this product.

  11. Second one I have ordered. Great quality and lasts forever. My first one was too small for my new phone. Received it two days after ordering.

  12. I have had my XL 48 for about a month. It works great. The size fit my otter box case very well. The case stays put and gives easy access to my phone. I can already tell the quality is much better than any other case I have had in the past. Very happy with this case.


  13. This is my second XL holster. The only reason I am getting a second one is because my new phone is too big for the old one. I had it for about 6 years and although it is worn and has a nice patina it’s still a perfectly good holster. Looking forward to breaking this new one in. Thank you for the stellar product and the coaster.

  14. My kids purchased me the No. 48XL phone case for Christmas, I own an iPhone 11 Pro Max with an Otter Box case and it fits perfect! I am so excited about this case! The leather and craftsmanship is beautiful!

  15. Nice iPhone case for iPhone 12 Pro Max. Well made, easy to carry and access the phone. I like it.

  16. This is my second iPhone case and I really love it. Delivery was swift despite the free shipping option I got. Great quality, gorgeous design and second to none after going through numerous other cases in the past. The new 48XL case for the much bigger size iPhone is pretty much like the same quality and design as the first case I got which I used daily for numerous years without any problem whatsoever. If the new iPhone would only fit into my smaller first case I would have reused it willingly since it still looks new, clean and without any scratches anywhere. I’m certain that my new case will serve its purpose like the first one.
    Btw, my wife saw the literature that came with my order and told me to get the matching belt for my early Christmas gift from her. I’m so blessed – Thank you, Lord!
    Thank you so much for your great American product and good luck.

  17. I had the iPhone case for my iPhone 6 for many years and loved it. I just ordered a new iPhone 6 Pro and unfortunately it is too big for the old case. I just received the No. 48 case in the mail as an early Christmas gift from my wife, and am sure I will get many years of use from this beautiful new case. I was pleased to see it is only a little bit longer than my existing case. Big enough but not too big. Love it.


  18. I’ve been looking for a quality phone holster for some time. I found your site and the No. 48 XL Leather Phone Holster looked like the answer to my prayers.

    I ordered it with my initials and it arrived in just a few days! Wow! It’s beautiful and top quality! Better than I expected! It fits my Pixel 3XL perfectly. I am very happy!

  19. This is the same outstanding quality we have come to expect from Col. Littleton. I had previously purchased three of the vertical holsters which I have enjoyed over the years, this horizontal holster seems to be more comfortable for me as I spend long hours in the vehicle and boat.


  20. I just recieved my phone case. It is absolutely gorgeous. I have the Oneplus 8 pro with protective case and fits very well. The case is made tough and sturdy. This is a great gift to anyone.

  21. I bought this phone holster on 11/07/20 and received it a few days later. As always, the craftsmanship is superb. I just got a new iphone
    12 Pro Max and it fit into the holster perfectly. Just thought you should enter that on your website to save customers from having to compare measurements from the Apple and from your web site. Great job.

  22. I bought this to slip through the strap of my leather backpack so I can have easy access to my phone without removing my backpack while walking. I can also do this with any tote or purse that has an adjustable strap. My iPhone 8+ with it’s Otter Box is a tight squeeze, but it works. I still have room for cash or a few cards if I want to throw those in with it. Overall, I love it!

  23. I have purchased several of your products in the past and never have I been disappointed! The quality is exquisite, the design perfect and I still have the first case I ordered years ago. Thank you for a product that never disappoints!

  24. I wanted to wait a week to review the product after using the holster in various circumstances. I have used it while horseback riding (my intended use), doing chores and just being out and about. I was able to sit comfortably in the saddle, even with a gun on my hip. The product is well made. I recommend it without hesitation.


  25. Just received my 48XL and love it!!! The quality of Colonel Littleton’s holster is FANTASTIC!!!
    The customer service is incredible–shipped same day as the order!! I plan on making a visit to the actual store in Tennessee!!
    I love everything about Colonel Littleton’s gear!! Just outstanding—–and the little Moonpie’s are too!! MANY THANKS!!!


  26. I just received my new 48XL phone case. The fit is perfect for my iPhone Pro Max. The initials are exactly where they should be and the overall quality is wonderful. I have been telling the wife I wanted this case and she ordered one. It was easy to order and arrived about ten days after placed even in these Covid 19 times. Thanks Colonel.

  27. Just got my phone holster. It could not be more perfect. My lawyer daughter is considering some of the Colonel’s product and is wondering if the cost is too much. I in my wisdom told her that long after the cost is forgotten you will appreciate the quality of the products these folks are making. I love the website and most of all the products. Tom P

  28. I have a new iPhone 11 and needed a larger case than the one that carried my iPhone 6 for many years. The smaller case has been retired and is still in mint condition. I look forward to using the new XL Case for many years. Great quality products!

  29. My wife bought this case for me and I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure about wearing it on my belt because of the size. I don’t know why I had doubts because this case is perfect. I had a Galaxy S9 when I got it but I now use it with my iPhone 11. This case will last a lifetime. Excellent quality.


  30. I am very pleased with the looks and quality of my iPhone case- This is the 3rd one I have purchased over the pasty 10 years.. I have had no issues.. Not one loose stich in all those years- The only reason for purchasing another is the change in the size of my phone..
    I recommend this product and will purchase another when I need another size..


  31. I must agree with all other reviewers, this phone case is wonderful! I have owned several of the Colonel’s phone cases over the years, but then once a new (read: larger) phone is purchased on upgrade, the old case is too small. For several years the Colonel did not have one large enough for my present phone with its protective case but now he does. The Number 48 XLarge fits the bill (phone)! If you are looking for a durable, long lasting, leather phone case, look no farther.

  32. This is my second holster I have owned. The first one I received as a Christmas gift 8 years ago. I would still be using it if my new phone had fit inside of it. You can’t beat the quality of these cases. I would recommend these 100%. It’s quality and durability can’t be beat.

  33. This is my 2nd Col. Littleton case–my new iPhone required a larger case, so I got this one. I used the older one nearly every day, and I expect the same kind of use for this one. Well-made, looks good, and wears well–it will last much longer than the phone. Great job!

  34. My husband purchased this phone case on Aug. 10, 2019 from your Lynnville store. He had used 2 of the smaller cases for his flip phones for years. When he finally caved in to the fact he was going to have to get a smart phone, the first thing he did was to get this case. It makes him happy and he uses it every single day.


  35. My husband purchased his phone case on Aug. 10 at your Lynnville store. He had 2 smaller Col. Littleton cases for his flip phones for a lot of years and really enjoyed them. When he finally succumbed to accepting he had to have a smart phone, the first thing he did was to purchase this larger case. He is enjoying it every single day.


  36. Thank you for a cell phone case that fits my Samsung Galaxy that has serious armor on it. Because of the armor no cell phone case I could find fit. Thanks again for the very well built 48 XL phone case. It looks like it will last the rest of my life.

  37. I ordered the No. 48 leather phone case on a Monday and received it on Wednesday. The lady who took my order-Selena was very helpful and efficient.The product exceeds my expectations in every aspect, from the look and feel and smell of the leather to the excellent craftsmanship. Obviously they take pride in making a quality product.


  38. People stop me on the street and want to know where I found this great looking phone case. I like it so much that I bought one for my wife.

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.
