At Portland Gear, we are more than just a brand; we are a vibrant community united by our profound love for the unique city of Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Our journey commenced with a simple yet powerful idea: capturing the essence of this extraordinary place and sharing it with the world. Since our inception, we've wholeheartedly committed ourselves to crafting products that encapsulate the spirit, culture, and values of the Rose City and the Pacific Northwest.
Our Story: Our founder, Marcus Harvey, fueled by '90s nostalgia and a deep passion for sports, cultivated his affection for Portland during his Duck-filled childhood and close proximity to Nike. After college, he delved into the realms of marketing, art, and branding. In 2014, inspired by the unwavering pride of Portlanders, he embarked on the journey of launching Portland Gear, armed with nothing more than two shirts and an overnight-built website. Today, our products proudly represent Portland in all 50 states and across 60 countries. We've grown exponentially, established a strong retail presence, and forged collaborations with esteemed organizations, all while remaining steadfast in our mission to foster Portland's pride and community spirit.
Our Mission: Our mission is crystal clear: to inspire a profound sense of belonging and pride within our community. We firmly believe that clothing and accessories have the power to transcend mere fabric and design; they can serve as powerful symbols of unity. When you don Portland Gear, you're not merely sporting a logo; you're embodying the heart and soul of our city and its people. Portland Gear is more than just a clothing brand; it's a platform for positive change. We are wholeheartedly dedicated to giving back to the city that has bestowed so much upon us. Through meaningful partnerships and impactful initiatives, we actively support local causes and organizations that drive positive change within our community.
