It's often quite tough to pick out the perfect belt, considering how many different types of clothing it has to match, and that those ones with the seatbelt buckles never really look right with pinstripes or tartan prints for some reason. Helping you build a belt that's all your own, Tanner Goods flagship store.
After selling their vegetable-tanned leather goods to the stylishly rugged in select boutiques and online for years,
Danny Tanner's finally opened a general store-like flagship featuring shelves stocked with everything from boots to a huge selection of hip-leather, built just for you in-store, "because everyone needs a good classic belt". Formerly taking weeks, the belting process is now as simple as choosing from a selection of pre-cut/ finished hides with hues from cognac to saddle tan, in styles from white-stitched cowboy-ish Heritage to double-tongue Rocker, all tricked out with your choice of hardware (flat black to stainless) riveted on your belt while you wait, meaning you can walk out strapped without that fascist background check. Belts aside, Tanner also stocks a selection of their other much-loved goods, including tough-guy double-strap wristbands, concerned-about-his-coffee-table-guy leather coasters, and smart-guy eyeglass cases based on 1960s military issue, also a Playboy special release with just a whole ton of articles.
Tanner's also been benevolent enough to open their shelves to other brands' products, like Danner's rugged boots, slick selvedge from Tellason, and colorful classic hand-stitched footballs from Leatherhead, which's what Chris Berman gets when he drops whatever giant belt he's wearing.
