A Trip to Winn Perry
Last fall I started hearing chatter about a new menswear shop in my hometown, Portland, Oregon. As time marched on and my interest in menswear continued to grow, I kept tabs on the budding shop in Southeast Portland. After a 12 month hiatus from Portland, I finally made it down to SE 11th to check out the shop’s wide selection of menswear brands including Alden, SNS Herning, Band of Outsiders, Quoddy and Hill-Side.
Winn Perry sports a nice array of Hill-Side ties and bandannas.
Jordan, Winn Perry’s founder, giving a breakdown of some of his offering ideas for future products and collaborations. Jordan named the store after his great grandfather and started the store after graduating from Portland State.
Some parts of the shop reminded me of Alex Carleton, like these Aldens, harpoon and chest.
Some Pendleton pieces from the collaboration with Opening Ceremonies.

I am glad to see young entrepreneurs making a run at it in menswear and putting Portland on the Map. For a one room shop, Jordan has amassed quite the list of brands that would leave many of Manhattan’s most coveted shops envious.
