    The Porch — mens tees

    Porch Fly Emblem

    Porch Fly Emblem

     

    When Bryant and I started Porch Fly in 2012, it was important that our logo represent the "Porch Life" ideology we wanted to convey. Our hope was to create a character that would immediately connect with our audience through a feeling of confidence, wisdom, and wit. We worked with the immensely talented George Hage, who helped bring our vision to life.

     

    Porch Fly Clothing Logo (Original)

    We loved the character we created with George, but that didn't mean there was an immediate inclination to blast it all over Porch Fly products. We honestly didn't expect people to want to wear a huge fly on their shirt. We figured it would serve as just a cool representation of our brand. But as the company grew, so did the positive feedback for the logo. We started with stickers and little business cards, and soon customers starting asking us to print up shirts. Fast forward to 2017 and the logo has ended up on every product line we've created.

    However, that same amazing detail that brought the character to life, killed it's ability to be presented in certain mediums. How could people see the detail of the fly if it was 1/2 an inch wide on a sleeve tag? How could we stitch that detail? Bryant and I had always talked about creating a secondary logo, sort-of a short hand version, so we decided to go finally make it a priority.

    We decided the three most important qualities were: Clean, Simple, Recognizable 

    Here's where we started. Don't laugh! Sometimes you just have to get the bad ideas out of the way...

     After some discussion with our friends and repeated sketches (including a bunch of terrible ideas), we finally had a quick stroke of "genius" that led us in the right direction. An hour or two later, after all the tweaks, additions, and deletions, we came up with something we're really proud of!

    Clean, simple, and recognizable. You can now find this stitched on hats and hoodies as well as printed on t-shirts. Click on the buy button below to pick up a tee or visit our lifestyle section to check our our stitched hat collection.

     

    Thanks for stopping by the porch!

    Whiskey's For Closers

    Whiskey's For Closers

    If you've ever worked in sales, you're very familiar with the phrase "Coffee's for closers!". Coined by Alec Baldwin in the iconic movie, Glengarry Glen Ross, that phrase has become a living mantra for anyone fighting to close the deal. Enjoy.

    In a perfect world, coffee may be enough of a reward for a job well done, but let's face it, we don't live in a perfect world. Thankfully, there's whiskey. The ultimate symbol of celebration, achievement, and mastery. When was the last time you celebrated a massive achievement by toasting lattes? Yeah, we don't remember either. That's why we've updated this phrase for modern times. Now, put that coffee down and pick that whiskey up. You're a closer, and you deserve it.

    These unisex crew tees are made from a lightweight poly-cotton blend and made to last as long as your career. Pick one up here and remember your ABC's - Always be Closing!

    Old North State Adventure Club

    Old North State Adventure Club

    The Old North State Adventure Club, now accepting applications! 

    Anyone who has spent some time outdoors in North Carolina knows that there are so many amazing places in this state for a good adventure. Anywhere from the mountains to the sea, grab some friends, get out and explore. The Old North State Adventure Club design was something we wanted to create to bring together those who never shy away from a little exploration! 

    Being outdoors has proven beneficial time and time again. This is extremely true for children more so than others. Many articles like this one highlight the benefits of getting outside both for kids and adults. That's one reason why we decided to partner with The Scott-Free Scholarship Foundation for this design. A portion of the sale of each Old North State tee goes to this incredible organization that partners at-risk children with a summer camp to encourage kids to try new things, get outside, and have an adventure.

    These tees are made from a lightweight polycotton blend and made to stay comfortable through all your adventures! Get yours now in Men's and Women's Tees!

    Easy Rider Squirrel

    Easy Rider Squirrel

    This bike, this squirrel, and that helmet are all about Freedom.

    A while back, we heard a new store was opening in downtown Raleigh. Devolve Moto. A store with some of the most badass stuff to be found. The idea behind this store gave us a lot of inspiration to make a design for all the bikers out there. The real heroes tearing up the open road. After long hours and much bourbon, we knew what we had to do.

    And this is where another one of our favorite movies comes in...

    Easy Rider is a classic movie. Hands down. So we thought, "why not create a design loosely based around this movie." In reality, we just loved the idea of a squirrel on a motorcycle. This way we could pay homage to a great movie as well as Raleigh's unofficial mascot, the squirrel. And that’s how the idea for The Easy Rider Squirrel was born.

    Made from the pure feeling of freedom felt on the open road (or maybe an ultra soft polycotton blend), this design is available in Men’s Tees, Women’s Tanks, Kid's Tees, and Onesies!

    Raleigh Moon

    Raleigh Moon

    Football season is here!! Assemble your pack and get ready for game day! 

    The Raleigh Moon design is very much an evolution of all things that all came together to create this awesome design. Initially, we were playing around with the idea for a halftone design, something we hadn’t done previously.

    The idea started as a lunar phases design but after some thought and first drafts of the design we found that we weren’t as crazy about this idea as originally planned. In the past, we had also tossed around the idea of doing a design for NC State. Living in Raleigh and seeing the impact that college football has on people, we wanted to create something for gameday.

    That was when the idea for Raleigh Moon came along. We merged together the concepts from the previous designs and came up with what you see today, a Raleigh themed shirt, with a nod to the Wolfpack!

    Currently, we offer the Raleigh Moon design in Men’s Tees, Women’s Tees, Onesies, and Kids Tees.
