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, they both realized they shared the tragic struggle of finding quality shirts with awesome designs. After peeling back the onion, they uncovered something even scarier…they weren’t alone. It turns out there were countless people just like them, 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.
They launched Porch Fly’s first men’s and women’s collections in August 2012. They quickly realized that clothing was the best canvas to bring our ideas to life. They love designing and creating almost as much as we love an ultra soft & fresh tee. Above all, they 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. They design with that in mind, using a melting pot of different ideas and influences, but at the end of the day, they create stuff that we’d want to wear and show their friends.
