DRIVEN...........XMAS PARTY 2012

Portland, Maine, is already the coolest city on the East Coast.

Now thanks to preternaturally dapper dude Kazeem Lawal and his girlfriend Jessica Kissell, who just opened the Portland Trading Co. on Middle Street, it also now ranks among the most stylish.

At PTC, Kazeem and Jess have assembled the perfect array of vintage and modern clothing, accessories and interior decor items for people who appreciate great style at affordable prices.

With a selection of vintage treasures from the legendary Bobby from Boston, high-end designer consignment, Smart Turnout NATO watch straps, household essentials with a New England flair and even hard-to-find men’s magazines from Japan, PTC has got the goods for smart, stylish young men and women who can be seen traipsing out the Old Port address in droves.

Get your designer denim-clad ass to PTC pronto is our advice, but meanwhile, check out this preview from the opening the other night.

And tell them DRIVEN sent you…
