Closet Visit: Rocky Golchin

Mens style in Portland can be a little rocky but Rocky Golchin has perfected the northwest look that is authentic, well fitted and has utility written all over it. His cat Emery greeted us as well as his collection of vintage oddities. From a prosthetic arm, pelts and an amazing pull down mechanics light he accessorizes his apartment beautifully.We are very fond of his love for denim, whichever tuxedo you prefer (the Texas or the Canadian) he has it covered. He has a great selection of vintage and new denim, dark and light and his jeans he wore during the visit were Rouge Territory, they are amazing! Golchin is not scared to throw on a necktie either, during our visit Rocky slipped into the "Diamond Point" Harding & Wilson tie and his canvas Round House apron. Speaking of accessories Rocky is never without his leather utility belt, prepared for a camping trip or a night at the bar The Sweet Hereafter where he works. His Tanner Goods belt is embellished with a Tanner key fob, pouch and knife sheath is made by Mike Elias and the knife is a vintage Casexx knife, u-lock holster is made by Billy Kirk, and the bandana is The Hillside. Rocky is also a huge Blazers fan and has dedicated a wall in bedroom to pay homage to Rip City’s basketball team. So heres to a well dressed man with a badass apartment!
