Blake's tough-as-nails interior houses one of Portland's best denim selections. Whether you're looking for something hardy like RRL, Tellason or Stronghold, or something on the more fashiony spectrum like AG or Diesel, this store should be your first stop. Merchandise lays atop of old ox carts, while old die-cast metal toy cars and tchotchkes like fire hydrants are artfully placed about the store. It's not all show though, the staff will be more than happy to place you in a well-fitting pair of jeans and tell you all about the fading properties of any particular pair of denim.
