Even as more and more Portland designers become proficient and pledge to keep their production local, often utilizing groundbreaking small-run manufacturing firms like the Portland Garment Factory, the scales are, perhaps unfairly, if unsurprisingly, tipped far in favor of womenswear. So here's a bright spot for the men of Portland: Myelabl was founded in 2010 by Adam Fous, but has flown under the radar (or, at least, my radar) until now. A line of shirts and jackets produced entirely in the city, Myelabl is available locally at that bastion of understated, workwear inspired classics, Dunderdon.
