He probably wants his shirt back. Too bad it’s a crop top now. I went to Portland a month ago and I discovered the best vintage clothing store ever. Like…Ever. Red Light Clothing Exchange. It’s huge, full of goodies, and cheap. I got probably 10 pieces for $100. Of course Oregon doesn’t have sales tax, so that always helps, but everything is reasonably priced. I’m no stranger to vintage clothing stores that know exactly how hot they are. Their “curated” collection of dresses usually go for $50+ and more often than not, $100+. So, I picked up a dress or two at Red Light. I held my breath as I searched for the tags. Lime green vintage eyelet dress with sailor bow neck tie. This isn’t gonna be pretty…wait… $18. What? Are you serious? Yoink, yoink, yoink! All mine. It was like watching a half naked Tazmanian Devil tear through a fabric shop. Things were flying. It all happened so quickly. The boyfriend was barely visible under the pile I had dumped on him. Sadly, the mens fashion falls a little short of Jonathan’s refined tastes. Portland is not a fashion mecca for the dudes. Dandies beware.
One of the pieces I found was this amazing shirt. It was definitely handmade. No tag and a very basic design. And that fabric. Tropical with a white tiger friend on your shoulder. You cannot do better than that.
Seriously though. If you’re in Portland go to this place. Thank me later.
