Clean Up @ The Cleaners!

day after thanksgiving shopping at its finest. not only will frank james be open normal hours 12-7 offering 25% off everything in the store, but we will also have some stuff down at the cleaners. we're basically giving it away all over town. xoxo



if you've ever been into the shop you have surely seen this photo of my dear fritz. what you don't know is the creepy things i tell people when they ask "who is that"? below are my answers.
photo credit: adam levey

1. "thats my boyfriend. he died. are you going to buy that?"
2. "thats the owner of the store, he's watching us. are you going to buy that?"
3. "i don't see a picture up there. are you going to buy that?"
4. "thats my ex boyfriend. he dumped me, i'm really sad about it. are you going to buy that?"
5. "thats my reason to live right there." then i blow the photo a kiss.

i was in nyc this past week for men's market. since i always forget to bring my camera places, this is the only great photo i have to share from my time there. my great friend ty mcbride sporting one of our altru olympic tee's from fj.

i'm very excited about the new lines for men coming into the store next season! we'll be welcoming penfield, ds dundee, fremont, buckler, baron wells, norse projects, etc.....


i really like this hat

the brixton 'stella' hat arrived today. a perfect summer accessory.


summer is here?

after months of darkness and cold is seems as though summer has finally graced us here in portland. i am not very happy about this (my apartment gets hotter than a high school wrestling match). the good news is that we are still clearing out summer goods at frank james. the store is a bit cooler than the blazing devil sun too.


go team

happy 4th of july weekend!
frank james will be closed on sunday so we can lay in someone's backyard.



photo of the day

this photo was taken at our one year anniversary party. i like knuckle tats and i hate copz....so i really like this photo.


handwritten letters

lately i've been seriously considering the thought of maybe thinking about getting into handwritten letters. i love receiving letters and cards. i love thinking about writing them to other people. not just telling someone i love them on the back of a receipt or writing my number on a match book at the bar.

today i was inspired when i found these great letters my pal gretchen wrote to her cousin abby.

dear creatures

call/email if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on the newest dear creatures...stock is very limited.
