Bridge and Burn Spring 2011




I can't write highly enough of Erik Prowell's designs for Bridge and Burn, a Portland label that makes classic and utilitarian jackets for men and women. I'm a big fan of the Castle jacket I purchased over a year ago and it has become a fair weather staple for me. I'm a little disappointed that the clothing isn't made in the USA, but hopefully, with gentle prodding, the company would be able to move things Stateside. In the meantime, I'm really loving the clean cuts of the shirts and jackets (Chambray! Waxed Cotton! Blonde Jason Schwartzman lookalike!) for Spring 2011 and it seems perfectly suited for the Pacific Northwest.

  3. Every city should have a shop selling well-made timeless classics like this one; sometimes I', sick of all the trend-led chain boutiques around me.

  4. lin, I think the reason why there's a lack of independent designers in our countries is because there's a lack of demand. It's really sad.
