Tanner Goods produces their Standard Belt by hand in the enviable climes of Portland, Oregon. It’s constructed from 9/10 ounce,  1.5″ wide, heavyweight English Bridle Leather, has hand burnished edges, and has been properly branded with the Tanner mark. Our test model was in natural-finish leather with a Nickel plated roller buckle and keeper, plus snap attachments to allow you to change up the buckle (may we suggest the Bay, for a variety of option).

The heft to this belt can’t be understated; it is a beast! It took us a few weeks to break in and feel comfortable on our jeans, but was well worth the effort. The natural color is a nice addition to any wardrobe, as it provides a great compliment to our Clark’s Desert Boots and Wallabees. Plus, we’re pretty sure you could tow a car with it if need be. The natural finish leather also will age and take on a patina unique to how we wear it, something we’re always a fan of.

Editor’s Note: Be sure to check out the rest of Tanner’s belts here. Nickel and natural leather are only one of a multitude of combos offered by their craftsmen.
