Our Story

Portland Gear -

My name is Marcus Harvey and I have a passion for Portland and product. Growing up in the area I've always been attracted to the Portland energy and wanted to harness it into something tangible. Two years ago I started the @Portland Instagram page which has since grown to over 250,000 followers from all over the world. In managing and running the page I saw the pride that Portlanders had and started getting requests for shirts and items to show it. On black Friday of 2014, with using my background in apparel design and branding, I launched the company with two iconic t-shirts and two photos on the @Portland page. Since then we've seen our products all over the world and have shipped a piece of Portland to nearly every state in the USA and 25 countries. We do lots of pop up shops with our decked out 1973 VW Westfalia and opened a brick and mortar store at 627 SW 19th ave Portland Oregon 97205 (right by Providence park). I want to create products that people actually enjoy wearing and sharing, and build a community around the city and its amazing people. I want to say thank you for all the support. It's been a fun journey growing the brand over the past 24 months and I look forward to what the future has in store.
