First Folio Poem
Oh, show me those neat folios
With pockets for utensils,
Slick secret folds of leather holds
And loops for pens and pencils!
The graceful note o' the Lakota
We need no advice on;
The bison's pelt, its pleasure's felt
By all, if not the bison!
Now ain't it a rule of thumb you're blue
If you don't have notes for thumbing through
And tedium strikes with no reprieve
Till Levenger fuels that joie de vivre?

A Smart and Professional Folio
I ordered this folio, monogramed in Saddle, in March; and I have received multiple compliments regarding this folio. I use this sleek and stylish folio to take meeting notes and to keep notes corresponding to specific meetings organized and easily accessible. As a matter of fact, I purchased a second folio in saddle to keep current research project notes and papers organized, and I also recently purchased a third folio in black to present as a gift.
This folio has a slim and stiff profile. The slim profile makes the folio easy to manage and carry in a briefcase or brief bag. The stiffness makes this folio a useful pleasant item in which to take notes and keep papers organized and at the ready. This smart and professional folio is enjoyable to use.

Tyler Folio makes a real statement
I received a Tyler folio in black with a monogram after getting a big promotion.
I use this folio for meetings both at work and off-site. No matter where it goes, it always receives compliments. I wish it were a little looser like the Softfolio but it is far more stylish. The pockets inside are very handy as well.

I have used this folio for some time and its quality is outstanding. My only problem that I have experienced that still frustrates me is the how the pockets are situated. After collecting a number of business cards at a trade show I put them in the two pockets on the side, however, when I closed the folio the cards would fall out all over the place. This problem is why it gets 3 stars overall.

I got them after getting the Bomber Tyler folio. There is difference between them other than just the Bomber jacket style. There are slimmer without the foam padding of Bomber. For some that may feel cheap. But the leather is great. I got saddle color and it has soften a bit now plus looks much better since I got it some time ago. I remember the folio felt stiff like those cheaper folios you see in bookstores but after some use it has gotten smooth. I think there is a reason why Levenger kept it slimmer than their other folios - to keep it lightweight. It is much easier to hold and move around with than say my Ambi.

I totally agree with the other reviewer in Chicago! I have also whacked taxis in Chicago with my junior sized folio! It has many uses!
I really miss the Junior size. Fortunately, I stocked up on the paper refills. I do have this folio in the letter size, but much prefer the Junior size. Please bring it back!!!

I meet with clients all the time. This Folio makes a great statement. Professional, traditional, classy, but not overstated or flashy. I would highly recommend it.

soft, beautiful leather... stunning color
So I was a little uneasy about getting the brighter green color, but I figured that it was time for something different from the same-old black.
I'm very happy that I chose the brighter green!
As you can see, the color is vivid and unique. The leather is soft (and it smells fantastic). Absolutely gorgeous. We'll see how it holds up!

I purchased this portfolio for my husband and had it monogrammed and he LOVES it!! He uses it all the time and it still looks brand new after 6 mos. The quality is great and it has such a professional look to it. I would reccomend this to anyone. The holidays are coming and this is a great gift idea!!

Wonderful design, disapponting detail
I bought this folio in tan at least four years ago, and I must confess, I've used it consistantly over that time for all out-of-office meetings as it looks more professional than my well loved Softfolio. The outer leather is fabulous--it has worn beautifully & I love all the interior pockets. Perfect for stashing meeting notes!
My disappointment is with the quality of the pad underneath the pad of paper. It has come apart at the stitching. The good news is that I've used it over the past years with this blemish and it's still functional, but now it's tearing rather badly and I'm contemplating getting it repaired or retiring it. It's a complete shame, as every other aspect of this folio has held up beautifully and I was hoping it would last as long, if not longer than my Softfolio which I've had for at least eight years--probably a decade--& still use everyday at work.
