Portland Threads is GoLocalPDX's weekly review of what Portlanders are wearing on the streets.

G-Star RAW opens up shop with plenty of raw and untreated denim and outerwear for Portland’s denim diehards.

“We are thrilled to be opening in Portland as it’s a significant part of G-Star’s growth strategy,” says Tony Lucia, G-Star’s North American CEO.  “This location is particularly exciting as the Pacific Northwest is a fresh market for our brand.”

The new 2,100 square foot G-Star store located in The Pearl, features clothing and accessory collections (check out Pharrell’s recycled ocean plastic collection) with clean and minimal concrete and steel interior.

Grand opening party look highlights include; a wacky patterned ‘90s oversized GUESS shirt from Goodwill, a button down polka dot shirt with peeking gold chain necklace, and a all black ensemble with a simple dangling gold necklace.
