This is Justin Machus's second Brick & Mortar Store. My first experience with his retailing skills was Local35 (on SE Hawthorne) which opened in 2003 and closed in 2011 after a successful 8 year run. So maybe this is the next step in this particular retailer's evolution.
The current Machus was founded with a focus of bringing modern yet classic clothing from a wide assortment of small brands and creative designers into one location. He works very closely with the reps and designers to curate a fairly tight assortment of seasonal merchandise. However, with my somewhat broad 50+ body, I fine the clothing selection to be a little too "tailored". On the other hand, the accessories (Apolis, Porter, etc.), a few well considered sales, and the friendly and stylish keep me coming back.
