I wanted to take a minute to talk about someone from Portland, and that someone is my man Nate( DripCity )Mac McElhaney . Nate has been keeping busy by staying pro active with his many clothing lines. With classic brands like "Drip City" and "Portland Raised" Nate has quickly become a Hometown hero to the residents of Portland. So I took a minute to ask The man himself some questions.
What is "Drip city" and "Portland Raised" all about?
Drip City is all about embracing change because we live in the city of change. Life is truly like the weather here. Portland Raised is all about equality. Coming together as a City to collectively fight anything we have to together. Thats when this City is at its strongest. No segregation.
When did you start "Drip City"
Drip City started in the end of June of 2018, everything else has evolved over the last year.
Besides the "Drip City" and "Portland Raised" collection what other brands do you have and what makes them different?
A: I have a little something for everyone . "Portland Blazed" is strictly for the dispensaries . "PDXL" Is Portland Large. "Live life Large in Portland " its also a size inclusive brand for big & tall sizes. So it just depends on what your in the mood for, if you want something that will make you laugh check out my "Below The Belt Comedy tees" where it's all just funny tees. If your always in the gym I have something for you as well from my brand "Portland Gains" gym line.
So besides expanding and continuing to excel in the fashion world, what else do you do?
A: When i'm not spending time with my beautiful family I'm working. I own a Graphics company as well called "Elevated Mind Graphic Design" that does custom graphics & vinyl print orders for local clothing lines, etc.
Q: Is there anyone that you would like to give a shout out to?
A: yes my partner Rutilio Medina. He created PDXL and we've known each other for 30 + years. We decided to tag team up and combine our clothing lines together just before I released Portland Raised. He owns an extremely successful, and well known Pizza Restaurant called Rudy's Pizza PDX. They specialize in Vegan Pizza and Vegan Wings, but also have a full regular menu.
