Stitchez, the men's clothing store on Congress Street where average nerds could find threads to transform them into super-hip nerds, will shut its doors on June 30. On May 19, owner Jon Gilbert sent out an email to his loyal customers in which he wrote "It is with great sadness that I must announce the closing of Stitchez Clothing - Owning this store, meeting with all my customers and trying to provide some diversity & fun to men’s clothing here in Portland has really been a joy - Unfortunately finances are forcing me to close."
Stitchez is a locally-owned shop which specialized in retro-style bowling shirts and ties with irreverant designs on them. Jon is now holding a going-out-of-business sale, everything is marked down 25 percent.
Swing by Stitchez soon and maybe you too can walk out looking like this guy:
