New Store, New Gear: The Floral Celebration Collection from Portland Gear is Here

If you’ve got the scoop on me, you’ll know I’m pretty much glued to a hat. Seriously, I rock them everywhere, even at work—my hat game is so strong that folks have started calling me “Matt in the Hat.” Can’t help it, my hat collection keeps expanding, covering both my running and chill sessions.

In the heart of downtown Portland – on the corner of 10th Ave & Harvey Milk St. Next to Ace Hotel – Portland Gear proudly unveils its new flagship store, marking the launch with an exciting array of fresh gear. This new location comes with a new launch – the Floral Celebration Collection – which includes a jacket and two pieces of dope headwear.

The Company:

Portland Gear, a vibrant and homegrown brand, has captured the essence of the Pacific Northwest’s culture and spirit. Even if you aren’t familiar with the company, chances are you have seen the distinctive “P” logo – the outline of the state within the P itself. Portland Gear embraces the city’s unique lifestyle, blending urban charm with outdoor adventure.

Situated in the heart of the city near Providence Park, they really reflect the city’s creative energy and sense of community. Portland Gear has quickly become a symbol of local pride, producing a range of apparel and accessories that resonate with residents and visitors alike.

For Oregon runners, Portland Gear offers more than just clothing; it provides a connection to the region’s running community. The company’s commitment to quality and style extends to their running gear, ensuring comfort and functionality while showcasing the iconic Portland aesthetic.

Wearing Portland Gear on the trails or streets embodies a shared passion for both running and the city, making it a cool local option that seamlessly merges performance with local identity. That “P” speaks volumes.

The Collection:

As mentioned above, the Floral Celebration Collection features two hats and a jacket. We received the unique and exquisite Floral Celebration Rose City Mesh Cap – a trucker style cap emblazoned with flowers on the front paneling and brim and “Rose City” in script. The mix of flowers in browns, purples, and greens is hard to put into words. Needless to say, there are no hats out there that look like this one.

The other snapback hat has the floral design on the entirety of the hat. And the jacket – man that jacket – is just one of the craziest, most amazing things I have ever seen.

The Verdict:

This collection celebrates not only the launch of their new flagship location, but also the uniqueness of Portland. For Portland’s runners, the Rose City represents not just a geographical location but a dynamic and blooming ethos that fuels their passion for the sport, and this collection embodies that.

Consider embarking on a journey by driving up to explore their new store location, where you can indulge in a purchase from this captivating floral collection. To make the experience come full circle, consider concluding your visit with a run up to the International Rose Test Garden, immersing yourself in the seamless blend of retail therapy and the natural beauty that defines Portland.
