Portland Style interview with Bob Davis

February 3, 2014
#PDXANTONIO

During my journeys walking around downtown portland, I found some time to interview the experienced Bob Davis, about Portland style and how people put things together. Bob Davis can be at imogene + willie, located right outside the pearl district (Downtown Portland’s shopping area).

Who are you and how long have you been in the Portland fashion scene?
My name is Bob Davis. I have lived in portland almost 8 years. I moved here to direct and buy for a local apparel retailer so I have been in the scene from the start.

How would you define your personal style?
I would define my style as a mix of classic, casual, vintage inspired. My foundation is a tee shirt, boots and jeans, then i build from there.

How would you describe the Portland fashion scene?
The portland fashion scene is as diverse as the residents but inspired by 3 distinct influences; the outdoors(think patagonia), sport(think nike) and rugged individualism(think filson).

In your opinion are there any trends shoppers should be looking out for?
In general I am seeing a DIY, mashup of vintage, rugged outdoor and tailored suiting. Also wool is important, fashionable technical outerwear, boots and denim.

This is a unique Amtrak train and has been completely redesigned to give you the Portland experience. This experience includes newly upholstered seats, art, food and beverages from beloved Portland retailers.

Travel Essentials: The Timbuk2 Aviator Travel Backpack

January 27, 2014
Timbuk2 Aviator hike

I like my travel bags to have both style and ample capacity. The Timbuk2 Aviator Travel Backpack is the essential bag to take with you for small out town getaways or quick weekend trips. One of my favorite qualities about this bag is the rain fly bag covering attached which gives it a bit of ruggedness during those wet days and protects your mobile devices like laptops, cameras, or mobile phones.

Style trend: Mixing patterns

January 6, 2014
Mens layering fashion

Mixing patterns can sometimes leave the most skilled style expert filled with anxiety. Polka dot, plaid or stripes mixed together the wrong way can lead to a absolute mess but done correctly, it can lead to genius!

One tip that I’ve learned in mixing patterns is to think “small and big”. Small patterns like polka dots on the inside and big and bold patterns on the outside. Here are two examples on how you could layer mixed patterns.
