Clothing Stores In Portland Oregon Boost Tourism – Press Release

Clothing stores in Portland, Oregon are attracting national and international acclaim while also serving as tourist attractions. Now known as the fashion mecca for men, many are scheduling trips to this tax free shopping haven. These shopping trips allow men to have their wardrobes designed, selected and custom tailored for style and comfort while saving money on price and taxes. The ever increasing pilgrimage of men traveling to Portland to enjoy personalized tax free shopping is also helping the local Portland economy.

Portland top clothier Este’s Men’s is known to many musicians, actors, performers, athletes and business men who regularly make the pilgrimage to this fashion mecca. Este’s boasts the prestigious honor of being the only clothier in seven states to carry the entire suit, formal-wear and tuxedo line from the national giant, Tuxedo Warehouse. The exclusive privilege was awarded to Este’s due to their experience and flawless standards of custom fittings.

Tony Spear, President of Este’s Men’s says, “Every man is treated with personalized attention whether here for a tuxedo rental or full custom wardrobe. Our image consultant and Director of Development Brian Tacker specializes in creating the perfect look for our clients, here or in their home or office.

Portland Clothing Stores -The Mecca for Distinguished Men

Portland clothing stores were part of Clark Gable's career

Clothing is extremely important as it is both reflective of and conducive to your state and mood. Dressed in a professional suit you automatically exude an aura of influence and authority, impacting those around you as well as yourself. Clothes empower you to express your agenda and personality. Studies show that we form opinions and judgments in only 3 seconds, thus clothing serves as nonverbal introduction and communication. Dressing well makes you feel confident, attractive, and put-together, your attire will motivate employees and coworkers to respect you, firms to hire you, and women to date you. The king of Hollywood and revered fashion icon, Clark Gable learned to dress and impress while living in Portland. Clothing stores here offer quality and excellence befitting A-listers.

Portland is a tax free hub and panacea for men’s clothing. You need not be a king or actor to luxuriate in personalized service.  Portland clothing stores offer convenience,selection, attention and unparalleled assistance. Fashion may be art but here you will be furbished like a priceless masterpiece.  Men from all over the country devoutly make the pilgrimage to this fashion mecca to embrace and learn the stylish art of manliness.  

Confer with an image consultant to guide you on the proper fit, colors, textures and patterns to best accentuate your assets.   Realize that price and value are two entirely different things and that a strategically selected wardrobe will last for many years. When you purchase the right items, you won’t need a ton of clothing, and you will leverage the most out of your investment. While shopping in Portland enjoy world class professional assessment while intelligently saving on tax and designer name brand pricing. Here are some tips to keep in mind.

  1. Bypass clothing that is too tight or too short, this will not flatter you (specially if you are not lean)
  2. High collars can create the illusion that you have a short neck; be mindful of collars and colors
  3. The torso can be shortened and/or narrowed by belts, bows, and collars
  4. Scarves that hang towards the legs, make legs appear longer, however the proper style  needs to be selected to avoid looking feminine
  5. Thicker vertical lines in plaids lengthen and slenderize as well as darker colors
  6. An ensemble of a pin-striped suit, blue shirt with white collar and cuffs along with a red tie denotes power and authority (studies also show that women are attracted to men in red as opposed to other colors)
  7. An ensemble of a solid brown suit and a neutral color shirt and light tie conveys trust, humility and openness
  8. Tasteful cuff links will show others that you are thorough and mindful of details
  9. Use silver colored cuff links with blues, blacks and grays
  10. Use gold colored cuff links with browns, taupes and tans
  11. Examine the quality and texture of fabrics, ensure that these don’t stretch too much
  12. When in doubt stick to the good old faithful white oxford shirt
  13. Be open to suspenders (women absolutely love these, the visual patterns have a subliminal effect)
  14. Always tuck your shirt in and please stand up straight (this helps you look up to 15 pounds thinner)
  15. Leave ribbed clothing to the Europeans, if you must only use ribbed socks (or the other menswear best suited for the bedroom)
  16. Forget about thick shoulder padding it does NOT make you look more muscular
  17. Keep jackets at the correct length, i.e. under your buttocks
  18. Three button blazers are slimming, you can get away with only buttoning  the middle button
  19. Determine how much you’ll spend on an item based on how long you can wear it, use discount stores for clothing that will only last one season
  20. Be prepared with a list of items needed before so that you won’t be tempted to buy something only because it’s on sale
  21. When selecting an item see if you can match it with at least three other pieces in your wardrobe
  22. Combine two solids with one pattern.  Dark navy suit, white or light blue shirt and a striped tie
  23. Accessories such as handkerchiefs, gloves, glasses, tie pins, and even umbrellas provide an additional touch of finesse
  24. Cuffless slacks  make you look taller and slimmer
  25. The sleeves of your suit  should just reach the base of your thumb, only showing a half an inch to an inch of your shirt
  26. As a general rule of thumb make sure that you can fit two fingers into the waist of your pants, otherwise you will feel uncomfortable

 While in Portland maximize your shopping experience and enjoy the historic Alphabet District. This area consists of two main sections NW 24th Ave to NW 2nd Ave and NW Vaughn St. to W Burnside St. Experience lovely parks, cafes, bars, spas, salons, boutiques and specialty retail shops. Discover which Portland clothing stores offer an old style barber shop, club room, massage chairs, shoe shines, dry cleaning and superlative personalized attention known as the home of distinguished men. Crocs may be gone with the wind but your imminent magnetism is just about to begin.

Dressing Your Age – Thirty-somethings

For many men being thirty something puts you into style Purgatory. Stuck somewhere between college and kids many guys by this stage have a wardrobe that consists of (aside from the work uniform of khakis and striped shirts) some OK jeans, a few polos and that one expensive suit that covers weddings, funerals and board meetings.

You know you need to go hit the clothing stores in Portland but what, as a maturing man, should you be looking for?

Invest a Little Cash – Spend some money on some high quality basics you can build a stylish wardrobe around. Buy suits that are tailored and timeless. The time is ripe for developing a unique identity with your clothing. And it’s not always about dishing out dough.

By now you should have learned that all the money in the world cannot buy taste. Shop the men’s clothing stores in Portland for what appeals to you and don’t be afraid to spend a little more if you have to get the look you want. But do not be swayed into purchasing something that you know does not work for you just because there is a designer label in the lapel.

Dress Down Gear – Ok you are probably not barhopping with the boys every night anymore. There’s probably a marriage or a serious relationship in your life by now, perhaps even kids. This does not mean however you have to start dressing like your Grandfather at the weekend. Resist oversize “Dad” jeans and go for something that fits, maybe in a darker wash.

Outdoor Gear – Now is the time to give up that NFL puffer jacket and invest in winter outerwear with a little more class and panache. Your 30s are for introducing pricier pieces like a leather motorcycle jacket and a cashmere sweater. And keep an eye on the fit, which is the key to looking good at any age. No matter what shape or size you happen to be if clothing fits it simply looks better.

Dressing Your Age – 20 Somethings

Although style difficulties related to one’s age are often thought to be a middle aged problem navigating your twenties in style can be a problem as well.

Often it is related to attempt to leave the college days behind and look more mature but without really understanding the right way that a young man can do this.

Other men have a hard time letting go of the beer and pizza breakfast chic that they have been sporting for the four years or so. Here then are some tips from the best mend clothing store in Portland, Estes:

Experiment – Few men in their early twenties have evolved a personal style yet (or at least one that suite them) Experimentation at this stage of life is fine. Test the waters with a few fashion trends that stretch your personal boundaries a bit. Some will be a hit, some will flop miserably but it will help you develop your own sense of style, rather than one that some magazine says you should be following.

Lose the Labels – After you graduate from college leave the Abercrombie and Fitch, the Sean John and all the other trendy labels behind as much as possible. These days the only thing your clothing should be advertising is you and your own personal style.

Buy Clothes that Fit – It was OK in college if your clothes looked like they belonged to your older, much bigger brother. Now however it’s time to grow up. Whatever you buy in the clothing stores of Portland make sure it fits. Have it tailored if necessary. And by fits we mean the shoulder seams actually hit you at the shoulder, the torso is trim but not tight, and the rear doesn’t look like it’s ready to make a special delivery.
