I am very glad these people made my wallet, belt, spectacle case… camera strap…

Thanks to OEN for this rather lovely article about Tanner Goods.

Or atleast new to me. Really liked the illustrations and an utter bargain at 6€.

Yet another reason to visit Portland

July 6th, 2011 by nipper


I own three items from Tanner Goods, a card wallet and a belt, actually that’s two… but I’m expecting another on my birthday. I hope. Anyway, I expect all of them to last longer than me.

When I bought my Wolverine 1000 mile boots they were described to me as ‘heirloom’ boots, I’d never heard this before, but I have to say, I can see that and not just because I’m approaching a big birthday and I’ve spent most of my life smoking, drinking and eating crisps. No, I mean they feel solid, they feel good, they feel like they’ll get better as they get older (as opposed to me).

Anyway, Tanner Goods, amazing product, great looking shop, I want to go now please.

Thanks to Cool Hunting for the shop info.

Michael Kiwanuka

I’ve been loving this tune by Michael Kiwanuka, it sounds well… ‘old’… in that is sounds ‘good’.

The fact the video is taking in the karaoke at Mauer Park, just up the road from Nipper Base, scores even more points.
