Whatever you do, avoid the hyped 50 Plates in The Pearl. Worst meal I have ever had at an (allegedly) "upscale" restaurant. I could have save 50 Bucks and stayed home with Dinty Moore Beef Stew and Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.
Just moved here from NYC four months ago. I have popped into a few of the better men's shops Downtown, but so far I would say your best bet is a salesman at the Nordstrom at Washington Square Mall named Chase.

I just made a move to Portland Oregon, and I feel like an alien in a suit amongst the unwashed masses! ;o)
I have to say I am quite impressed with Nordstrom's (being a lifelong East Coaster, this is alien to me). It looks like it may have to be my go-to spot for businesswear between trips back home to NYC.
Any advice for finding good deals there from the more experienced? Or any other likely spots for better menswear in Portland?
I swear, they must...
I have to excuse myself, being the proverbial Nice Jewish Boy and even DRESSING for Easter would kill my 91 year-old grandmother, but should there be a thread to show off Easter Sunday outfits?
And yes, SoCal...it is OK to show-off your new bonnet.
