Port Independent

Port Independent – or Gerard, Preston and Nathan, the three guys behind the shop – is an independent clothing retailer in Sunderland. Providing the people of Sunderland with designer brands, Port Independent has become one of the favourite retailers in the city for those who want something different than what is offered on the high street. Having created their own in-house brands, there is something for everyone in the store.

These brands are Patels Skatewear, INDPT, Port Basics and Harbour, all of which are available both in store and online. Each of these brands aims to provide the cool, branded, comfortable clothing that provides day to day utilitarian use (even sports use in the case of Patels Skatewear) for those who want to stand out from the crowd. Not only that, but they keep their website updated with their new arrivals and designs so that their customers can always find what they are looking for. While designer clothing can often feel out of the reach of many people, Port Independent offer three concession brands (Redstar, Vaux Merch, Art of Football) providing great clothing at an affordable price. Not only do they offer new clothing, but they have a sister company, Port Vintage, who handpick the best in vintage and pre-loved clothing to ensure the customer gets the best choice.

The team at Port Independent are also keen to hear from their customers and encourage people to be in touch with them to say what they are looking for in clothing. While they want to hear from customers, they also want to keep their customers in the loop and maintain a blog about their clothing, what they are doing and how the shop is changing means that customers regularly hear and get to see the vision of Port Independent from the owner while the business grows. Drop into Port Independent to discover what small independent fashion has to offer.
