Staff Picks: Jared, Retail Manager

Our retail manager Jared runs a tight ship. Since he moved to Portland from San Francisco last winter, he's kept the Bridge & Burn flagship store looking fresh with his thoughtful merchandising and ability to source cool new products our customers love—like our own line of screen-printed totes and our brand-new selection of Baxter of California men's grooming products. Whether it's where to eat nearby or which shirt fits best, he's got loads of good advice and is always happy to help.

He answered a few of our questions and shared his top picks for Spring14.
