LOGAN ZANE-“MADE IN USA FOR, FOREVER”
Those are the words of Greg, creator of Logan Zane, when he speaks about his brand. Many of you were able to see the photo I took of his booth while at (Capsule) NYC. Well I had the opportunity to meet with Greg last week to sit and talk about Logan Zane.
Greg is as genuine of a guy that you could hope to meet. We spoke about the beginning of Logan Zane (named after his son) which, he states, started out of necessity and frustration. Looking for a perfect bag isn’t easy. Something with clean lines, quality materials, and that isn’t shoving a logo in your face can be hard to find. After searching Greg decided to just build his own. Enters the first REMSEN. A beautifully hand made bag made from sourced burgundy Italian leathers that he then put together right here in NYC . After wearing the bag to Capsule in 2010 it started grabbing everyone’s attention. Being approached numerous times and people asking; where can I get this bag? Is it part of a complete line? etc. Greg decided to try and take his bags to the next level.
Having had bad experiences in the past with productions in China for other productions, Greg plans on keeping Logan Zane made in America at all cost. He keeps his operations small with only a few others producing the bags here in NYC. It allows him to oversee that the quality stays up to par with his standards. He sources all his leathers from Italy. Having visited different tanneries he simply states “Italy just has the best quality leathers that fit my needs.”
We also got to talk about some future projects Greg has lined up for Logan Zane. First one being a collaboration with local NY street artist AvOne of Destroy & Rebuild. Also in the near future will be a collaborative work between Greg and one of his friends and fellow bloggers Anchor Division. If you check out Anchor Division you will see they actually have a shop coming soon, so stay tuned in with them and look forward to catching some of the Logan Zane goods there.
Having been able to personally sit down with all the products and really examine them all I can say is Greg has an eye for detail and doesn’t skimp on quality. That, and the fact that when he pulled out the new Camouflage Remsen some guy riding by on his bike almost crashed and stopped to ask about the product, tells me Greg knows what he’s doing with his brand. Check out the site, look into the bespoke items and also the smaller leather goods, you won’t be disappointed.
