Self Edge Opens in Portland
Self Edge’s selvedge and raw denim pieces offer a range of textures and tones while their shirts and outerwear feel wonderfully worn and lightweight. Most of the denim collection hangs on heavy hooked hangers highlighting the shop’s commitment to the sturdy craftmanship of early 20th century workwear and production techniques. Self Edge Portland is also one of the few shops with a vintage Singer Darning machine and the Union Special Chainstitching Machine for denim repairs and hemming.
The shop itself is well designed with a slight industrial feel highlighted by the exposed bronze ducts and softened by the use of aged wood throughout the space. With its central location on W Burnside + SW 10th, Self Edge is surrounded by like-minded neighbors on all sides: Danner Boots is across the alley, Steven Alan’s new shop is a few stores up and Spruce Apothecary is right next door.
