Gay vs. Not Gay: Is Portland Outdoor Store Adjusting to its New Neighbors?

Tags: Spotted, gay
IMG_5091Waltzing down SW 3rd Avenue I noticed something new in the window of The Portland Outdoor Store.

The traditional western wear and equipment shop, which has catered to Oregon cowboys and cattlemen for over 75 years, had what looked like a new advertisment for jeans tucked in between the hats, boots and other country-living classics that fill the windows of its old-school store.

It was an ad for Levi Jeans. But not just any ad.

In it three incredibly attractive guys stand alongside a bar, with nary a woman in sight. With just a hint of sunlight left in the sky, the hot boys intensely check each other out. And let's just say they don't seem to concerned on which one of them is wearing the "relaxed, straight or boot"-cut jeans. One has his hand in his pocket. Another arches his hind end ever so slightly.

And the third guy looks like he's about to rip the denim right off the other two.

Now, I've watched gay porn with less sizzle than these guys exude and it makes me wonder if the Portland Outdoor Store isn't trying to "adjust" to its relatively new gay bar neighbor.

The Silverado, aka "Silver Dildo," moved in January from its Stark Street home and been camping out next door to Portland Outdoor Store for the last few months with its assortment of stiff drinks and even stiffer naked dancing boys.

It's sort of a perfect fit in a Brokeback Mountain meets The Birdcage kind of way.

And man, I think it's starting to rub off on Portland Outdoor Store.

What do you think? Here's the ad:
