3Sixteen x Tanner Goods belts

July 6, 2011

I don’t often wear a belt but it’s always worth having a good one in the wardrobe just in case. Which leads me nicely to this version by New York based 3Sixteen and their collaboration with Portland’s Tanner Goods. For the last few seasons the two labels have been working together to produce some extra heavyweight, natural leather goods and this is one of the fruits of this partnership.

These belts are made from a heavyweight 13oz English Bridle leather and are all hand-stitched in the USA. Featuring waxed edges and the 3sixteen and Tanner Goods logo stamped into it, the leather has been left natural so that they’ll darken down over time as they age, giving them a great patina that will match the aged buckles.

They’re said to have taken nearly twice as long to produce in comparison to a standard Tanner Goods belt, due to each keeper being skived down to a 5oz weight, then hand edged before being stapled together. The buckles and keeper are then sewn in with white waxed thread using a hand stitched saddle method. And those antique buckles really are great aren’t they? Made from plated brass, they were sourced by 3Sixteen from an Army-Navy surplus store – each one is slightly different to the next, and further adds to the unique, hand made nature of the belts.

Denim Geek have started stocking 3Sixteen’s products, making them the only place in the UK selling the stuff (it’s about time some one did, so well done lads), so for more information or to buy one of these from their online shop, go here: 3Sixteen x Tanner Goods belts.
