Located in the heart of Downtown Portland, Bridge & Burn represents the best of the heart of the Pacific Northwest. Each season the local shop looks to the natural beauty and thriving culture of their hometown to create clothing that celebrates the best of simplicity, versatility, classic style, and individuality. 

The Bridge & Burn Story

Erik Prowell was well into a masters degree in computer science when he realized he didn’t want to spend his life slouched in front of a computer. With no formal design training, but industrious and down-to-earth, he took a calculated leap, lit the proverbial match, and threw it—burning the bridge of working for anyone else behind him. After a few years designing t-shirts out of his Bend, OR garage, he lit that match one more time, moved to Portland and began designing a full line of apparel inspired by his Northwest roots. Bridge & Burn officially launched in 2010, followed in 2013 by the opening of its flagship retail store in downtown Portland, OR.

What’s one thing people don’t know about Bridge & Burn?

Bridge & Burn proudly gives one percent of all retail sales to a local Portland charity as part of a quarterly donation program. We call it One Percent for Good. We’re driven by community and often team up with brands we love and other like-minded individuals. It is our goal to invest back into the community that has given us so much support.
