John Porter (menswear) Limited is a high class independent men’s clothing shop founded by my father in 1965, specialising in the highest quality Italian tailoring and accessories and English bench made shoes. I took over from my father in 1980 and moved the shop to the exclusive suburb of Chislehurst.

Now known more simply as Porters, the shop has evolved into one of the finest Gentlemen’s Outfitters in England. I offer the type of high quality elegant men’s clothes more usually associated with the finest boutiques in London’s Mayfair or Via Montenapoleone in Milan. However I am often more unique since I take sole charge of sourcing my collections and avoid those brand names which are ubiquitous yet are presented as being exclusive.

I like to offer my clients an elegant, refined manner of dress which is developed from classic foundations yet constantly kept up to date.
