Self Edge is the spot to grab the best Japanese denim anywhere not located in Japan. The shop has long been the go-to location for those who search out heavyweight raw denim, well-made shirts, and everything associated with the biker culture of the '50s.
As of now, the store has three different locations: San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City, but is opening another location in a city that's certainly bustling, but a little off the beaten path—Portland, Ore.
However, the Portland location is much different than the three previous shops. It will be linked with Ace Hotel and Powell's Books in a retail project entitled "Union Way." The Portland location will still carry the same brands as its other locations such as Sugar Cane, 3Sixteen, The Flat Head, and Iron Heart, but will also stock an added amount of outerwear for the area's rainy winter months.
If you're in the area and want to swing by, the shop will be located at 1022 W. Burnside Street #J.
