So here’s the thing. I got my Colonel Littleton front pocket wallet as a groomsman gift back in 2006. The groom had no idea what to get his guys, and I suggested these wallets. They were a huge hit, with all six guys using their wallets for quite some time. I’m not sure how many are still in use, but I decided it was time to put mine out to pasture.
The recent trip to Colonel Littleton was an excellent opportunity to get a new one. I had been debating getting the alligator option, but after looking around, I opted for the buffalo leather option. Here is the old, and the new:
I really like the movement in the leather. It is very sturdy, and lined on the inside with another layer of buffalo leather. The original, cowhide is lined as well, so it’s great that they did the same for other models.
One of my favorite parts about these wallets is the embossing. I asked if I could add a date to this one, and luckily, they were happy to oblige. Adding a date to anything gives it a characteristic. Almost as if you can remember that point in your life and think back. I think it looks great:
Anyone else use a Colonel Littleton wallet? Let’s see the goods…email me a picture and the year you got it and I’ll update the post.
I love mine as a business card holder. It has enough space to carry 20 or so cards plus a few blank ones for notes I need to jot down. I bought mine three or four years ago as an actual wallet, but never got used to having such minimal space. When I started my new job and needed something to hold business cards I pulled this bad boy out of the drawer, and it has worked perfectly. I actually carry it in my back pocket opposite my wallet pocket. Love your blog!
