A life well-designed.

Porter James Sports celebrates a life of refinement through a considered take on modern menswear.

The brand was founded by Joshua Heares in December, 2020 from Auckland, New Zealand.


All of our garments are designed in Auckland, whereas 90% of our production is done with two suppliers in China. Nearly 100% of our screen printing and embroidery is done in New Zealand.

In some cases, we've made garments in the United States although we have found China to be the superior option. This has allowed Porter James Sports to forge a reputation of quality and accessibility. 

Our suppliers in China are both based in Dongguan. We enjoy visiting their family-owned and operated factories each year and they seem to enjoy hosting us too :)

We have partnered with ONE TREE PLANTED, contributing $1 for each sale to their sustainability initiatives. On behalf of our customers, our donations go towards New Zealand forestry, planting native trees like Kauri and Pōhutukawa. Find out more here.
