Natural Born Elegance

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Fri, Oct 19, 2012 at 10:14 AM

Next time you feel like making the old argument about Portland's European aesthetic, and/or further taking down the dank-ass moldy stereotype that everyone here dresses like a reeking hippie (only some of us do, and a lot of them are going to die soon), I present to you more fuel in the form of Natural Born Elegance, another company catering to an apparent demand for more formal men's clothing, neckwear in particular. (We're racking up a tidy local selection, with upstart specialists like this and PINO joining stalwarts like Duchess and Adam Arnold). NBE's base of operations is here in Portland, but their roots extend to Italy—specifically a wool and cashmere mill started in 1881 in Biella. Click this way for more on what's something of an unusual beast in these parts: an overtly luxury oriented fashion brand.
