Porch Fly Clothing was established in Raleigh, NC in 2012 by Joshua Gruder and Bryant Szabo. After a late night hanging out on the porch with a few friends, we both realized we shared the tragic struggle of finding quality shirts with awesome designs. After peeling back the onion, we uncovered something even scarier...we weren't alone. It turns out there were countless people just like us, who loved the feeling and freedom of a fresh tee but continuously fell victim to cheap materials and lazy work. Just like that, the Porch Fly dream was born.
We launched Porch Fly’s first collections in August 2012. We quickly realized that clothing was the best canvas to bring our ideas to life. We love designing and creating almost as much as we love an ultra soft & fresh tee. Above all, we believe that no matter where you're from, or what you do, there is always time to "enjoy the porch", and give due respect to the simple and great things in life. A delicious vice, an amazing talent, a nostalgic place or time, a unique sound, a key innovation, or an original thought. We design with that in mind, using a melting pot of different ideas and influences, but at the end of the day, we create stuff that we'd want to wear and show our friends.
We're thankful for the constant support and feedback. We love sharing our process and connecting with our customers as we grow the brand. As a small business it's important to us to be deeply involved in our community, so we're always looking for ways to promote Raleigh and the talent it has to offer.
