I was recently able to help out my buddy, Bryan, with his growing and changing endeavors of Forager Co. Forager is a locally sourced, and sewn menswear company hailing from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, specializing in limited run vests. Bryan’s main effort under Forager is to not only keep it USA made, but locally made. His small team of Amish + Mennonite craftsman/women help bring his brand and ideas into fruition. With materials for his staple pieces sourced state-side, he also repurposes vintage blankets and linens for his special run items.
I photographed two of Bryan’s friends, Dale – a farmer, musician and all around unique character, and Chris – A designer, wrencher, and one of the main heads over at Lancaster’s menswear store, Ellicott & Co.
All photographs taken with a Mamiya 7 + Kodak Portra 400.
