"My Fathers Cowboy Heart"
One of our newest Tanner Goods customers, Jordana sent me a very moving email a few days ago. She wanted to share the story behind her fathers belt buckle. While searching for a new belt she found that the Standard belt in Natural was the ideal vessel to continue his legacy in the physical world.
"The buckle is brass, and my Dad had it custom made sometime in the mid-to late 70's in New York City, where we lived. The buckle has stamped in the back, "Hector Jorge Creations New York." My Dad had the buckle made to match a heavy silver ring he'd bought in Mexico in '74, and that he wore every day on the middle finger of his left hand as his rebel interpretation of a wedding ring. My father gave me this buckle some years ago when he finally stopped wearing jeans and cowboy boots and a chambray shirt any day he was not at work. I plan to wear this buckle with the Tanner belt and have it age in remembrance of my father's cowboy heart."
A simple gesture which easily tugged at my heart-strings.
To Jordana and her whole family, the very best wishes from the whole team here at Tanner Goods.
