They had a few mishka tees last time I was there...
Although I rarely even bother with them anymore since I usually try to wear XXL (and they have very little). If you are looking for XXXL like in your sig good luck.
yeah i remember last time I was there that their selection of large sizes was piss poor... i guess that's just another sign that the stick-thin hipsters have officially taken over Portland. I used to work at the Levis store on 23rd, and I actually had to special order shirts in my size just to wear while working there. Shit's pathetic.
whats boxing day like in portland, any shops having big sales?

good luck with that... portlanders have thick skulls and a preference for REI and goodwill. I just remember buying my addict hoodie at local 35 for $10 because they couldn't sell it.
^^^ Its just the damn truth. Portland doesn't have the same tradition as a NY, Boston, LA, SF, etc of people flossing expensive labels. I mean the richest bitches in Portland barely know their fashion shit (probably learned it from watching the hills or some BS...), much less the backpacker kids who smoke too much weed and only listen to underground hip hop, the the lazy college weirdos who study anthropology at PSU or PCC, the dudes who ride bikes they converted or people who will live and die in Eugene.
If you all can't tell, I'm homesick hahaha. I leave for the US tomorrow!
Well I don't necessarily disagree, but to play devils advocate some of it is just the climate. You see a lot of people in Portland and Seattle driving around expensive cars, but dressing in basic clothing. It is hard to get too excited about wearing $400 shoes when it is raining all the time. Other than the few nice months in the summer or whatever it is usually more about utility than fashion up here.
Personally, I spent a lot more time/money on clothing when I was in LA. The weather is good 90% of the time and there is always this 'keep up with the jones's' thing that goes on with respect to image. Not saying that is always a good thing...I would like to think that I am not always being judged on what I happen to be wearing at the moment, even though we all know its true (to some degree).
Eugene people however, they are a breed of their own
