Up W Burnside in the heart of old town Portland lies Tanner Goods' flagship storefront. The home grown leather goods maker has grown in recent years to much fanfare from around the world. With everything from leather wallets, belts, bracelets and camera straps to waxed cotton camera bags, backpacks and duffles, each piece is made entirely by hand of domestically sourced materials right here in the City of Roses. Located under the same single room shop's vaulted ceiling you'll find a wide selection of fashionable menswear. Known as The Woodlands online, the Americana-inspired garments were formerly housed in a separate shop down the road. However Tanner Goods' founders Sam Huff and Jevan Lautz recently moved both operations under one roof to create the quintessential Portland outfitter. Here you will find every key component of the true Northwesterner's wardrobe with an emphasis on American-made goods including a number of other like-minded West Coast-based brands like Tellason and Rogue Territory.
Just across the street is the world's largest bookstore Powell's and any number of reputable coffee shops and restaurants. Head east to hit the Willamette River waterfront, a river long park and footpath that stretches from north to south Portland and offers unmatched views of the city and its surroundings, including Mount Hood on a sunny day.
