In 2010 Erik Prowell launched Bridge & Burn, a small line of functional, definitively west-coast outerwear. The next season brought Bridge & Burn’s much-loved shirting. In 2013 the Bridge & Burn Flagship store opened in downtown Portland, giving firsthand access to customer feedback and a home for events, collaborations and our hands-on design studio. The line continues to grow beyond North America into Asia and Europe, but the focus has never shifted from functional design, beautiful detailing and incredible fit.
Now we celebrate other Bridge Burners—bold entrepreneurs who have stepped out on their own and “burned the bridge” of working for anyone else.
