Short Film on Tanner Goods by Ryan Bush
Tanner Goods is a brand we’ve covered a fair amount in the past, some of you may recall a selection of studio shots from the portland based collective or perhaps their first retail space which we featured on the blog back in July. More recently we’ve not come across any further content from these chaps so it was great to see the brand still going strong in this short film that has been put together by graphic designer come filmmaker Ryan Bush.
The creative director Sam Huff seems to have had a colourful upgrade in the wardrobe department but aside from this the message still runs true in that they strive to make handcrafted goods to the highest standard. I have heard talk of the brand expanding and creating some non leather pieces like eyewear and watches but I’m positive they won’t stray too far from their heritage style that everyone loves them for.
What I really enjoyed about this particular project was that we get to see a little more of the process that Tanner Goods undertake in making their products, they really seem to have got production down to a tee now. Having got our hands on some real quality leather belts from Tender for the shop it makes you realise how much skill goes into creating something that is going to develop and improve with it’s owner over time.
In the past couple of years I’ve come to respect the value of something that has been made to last, which is why I’m now more inclined to spend that little bit extra on quality. I think where this film really exceeds itself is in highlighting the attention to detail that the makers at Tanner Goods pride themselves on. If you’re in the market for a handmade belt then the Tanner Goods website is an ideal place to start, alternatively we have these in stock from Tender which I’m personally fond of as well.
