No. 28 Personalized Leather Folder

Although the No. 28 Portfolio is a direct descendant of our always popular line of portfolios, this new premium design has many special features that will set you apart in the Boardroom or in any business venue.

“In the final analysis once the vision is established, value almost always equates to time and materials . . . the time it takes to make something and the materials from which it’s made. If you’re in search of a leather portfolio of the highest quality, I think you’ll have an appreciation for the No. 28 Portfolio.”

– Colonel Littleton

Construction and Extras

Colonel designed this new portfolio in our full-grain, wonderfully textured, rich Tobacco Brown American Buffalo and gave it nice contrast by trimming it in our Vintage Brown polished American Steerhide. Then, to elevate the quality even more, he fully lined it in Calfskin. Overall, these are stunningly handsome portfolios.

The interior features a diagonal slash pocket for stashing 8.5” x 11” documents, tickets, receipts, etc. as well as pen/pencil and business card pockets. It includes a Colonel-designed 8.5” x 11” ruled Memorandum Pad which is held in place by leather steerhide strips and may be reordered. It also accommodates standard 8.5” x 11” ruled pads. The No. 28 Portfolio is edge-stitched for strength and durability and edge coated for a quality finish.

Make it Yours

Make it undeniably yours by personalizing it with 3 initials embossed on the front for a distinctive touch. Product packaging includes a cotton canvas, protective, drawstring dust bag and a gift box, both with the Col. Littleton Cameo Logo. Overall dimensions are 12”H x 9.5”W. Meticulously handcrafted 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.”

  1. Got mine today!!! This is an extremely high quality item and may be one of the best things I have ever purchased for myself, with the exception of my Col. Littleton wallet I purchased last year. I am so excited to use this portfolio.

  2. I’m a bit late in leaving this review, as I purchased this portfolio for my husband last June (2021) for Father’s Day. This No. 28 Portfolio absolutely fulfills his needs and goes everywhere he does. Keeps him organized, quickly make notes or track ideas for new projects. It’s not only beautiful but durable …. will last a lifetime. Not the first gift from Col. Littleton’s shop and not the last.

  3. I have one word…WOW! This portfolio is absolutely stunning. Its made from the most beautiful leather. They craftsmanship could not be better. The turn around time from order to shipment for a personalized item was lightening fast. The packaging was just as nice as the product. This is the epitome of what a product and customer service should be. I will absolutely be a repeat customer!

  4. Got mine today. It’s all that I expected AND came with a moonpie. Excellent quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. I will definitely recommend them to all of my friends.

  5. I just got my No. 28 Portfolio in the mail, and it is exquisite. The two-tone American Buffalo leather and the stitching are absolutely superb – quality craftsmanship. The leather gives the portfolio enough heft to make you feel like the contents are well protected, but it’s not heavy at all. It’s also the perfect size to fit into my Navigator briefcase. This is well worth the investment!

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.
