Matthew Porter x Nicholas Pain collided by fate out on the seven seas and immediately clicked. Their humour, personalities, and passions aligned like the stars and they knew that great things would be ahead of them.
Matthew grew up in England and got into the yachting industry to travel the world. Nicholas grew up in Australia and got into yachting to get away from all the snakes. They worked together on a yacht that was embarking on a world tour.
The boys always knew they were going to go into business together and had been bouncing ideas back and forth from day one. Porter x Pain was the concept that got their creative juices flowing as they both have a passion for fashion and a similar style.
Nicholas is still sailing around the world on a yacht with Matthew in the UK running operations on the ground.
