  1. Husband bought this purse for me as a present.
    Simple, classic and timeless.
    What more could you want?


  2. Hello all
    I bought the Derby bag at a shop in Leipers Fork, for my wife as a gift. The craftsmanship is impeccable and the staff at the shops in Lynnville are outstanding. Truly an exceptional , locally made product! Do yourself a favor and go find the Colonel and get yourself some.


  3. I received the Derby handbag as a Christmas gift from my husband. I know I will love it just as much as my first one (a hobo style bag). The Derby will be perfect for hands-free shopping.


  4. I was given the Ashley bag for my birthday and I love it…it’s just a little larger than the Derby which I bought years ago. I have admired the Ashley for a while now and when asked what I wanted for my birthday, I did not hesitate. Thank you, Col. for the great design!

  5. I have purchased two of these over the years for my wife (even before you had to be a “verified” buyer). Bought the first one at Mast General and it quickly became my wife’s “Go-to” bag.

    The second one was purchased at the Colonel Littleton Store in Lynnville. One of my friends was on a business trip in Tennessee and he wanted to stop by the store (he had seen all of my Col Littleton goods).

    He said he found a bag like my wife’s but the leather looked different. After seeing a texted photo, I had him purchase it on the spot.

    Happy wife, happy life. Thanks Colonel!!


  6. These people do not have to strive to be stellar, they already are! Incredible service. I love this bag. It is perfect for those times when I don’t want to be bogged down with something larger. I purchase the card/money holder to go with it. It holds just the essentials. It is very well made. The leather smells wonderful. I am already looking at replacing my current bag!

  8. My wife and I made trip to you store yesterday and she absolutely fell in love with this purse. Great to see all on display as we are big fans!


  9. We purchased our sixth Derby purse yesterday. Every girl in our family has requested this purse for their birthdays. I have the earliest one, but I love the newer edition with the cross body strap and extra leather reinforcement on the front. I may sooner or later have to update. Your products are always top quality — stellar! Sharon Greene


  10. I received the Derby Handbag as a gift. What a delightful surprise. The quality is impeccable. The bag is the perfect crossbody as it feels light and comfortable. Did I mention the quality? Beautifully constructed and “stellar” materials. This bag is my first introduction to the Colonel Littleton line of products and I am certain it will not be my last. Now on to shopping!!


  11. December 2015. We took a road trip to Lynnville from Brentwood to visit the store after reading about it in the newspaper. I am a purse connoisseur (I know a great purse when I see it!). I was looking for a cross body bag to take to NYC. I came across this pure and wore it around the store for 30 minutes while my husband purchased the #3 Grip. Sarah and Sandy took great care of us and we will recommend the Colonel’s great products to our friends. To add to our stellar day, we watched the Lynnville Christmas Parade right in front of the store. Thanks for a truly memorable day!!


  12. I had two requirements when searching for a purse to fit in the saddlebags of our motorcycle 1.It needed to be somewhat “squishable” and 2. It had to be small yet hold what I needed. This bag was perfect! All I generally need when we take the bike out are my phone,keys and lip balm and they all fit perfectly into this with room to spare!

  13. I think I will buy this bag as a gentleman’s purse next year when I up grade to iPhone 6+ ( or what ever they call it then). I think it is best for handling a money clip a large screen phone, passport, travel size personal hygiene accessories, key chain etc… However I would prefer a stronger locking mechanism under the flap so that there is no chance of things slipping out. More on a military style heavy duty zipper or something that is more secure then what it currently has. So please consider my request for the next few months. I will therefore give it 4 stars.

    PS: I already own the Vintage Messenger Bag and I LOVE IT!

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.

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.
