Port issue 1
Delivered to Stack subscribers in Mar 2011
A men’s magazine that aims to do things differently, Port is as ambitious as it is connected – Hanif Kureishi (music editor), Samantha Morton (film editor) and Jon Snow (politics editor) give an idea of the circles it moves in. But above all, it’s a fantastic read for men and women alike – even (or especially) the ones who would never normally pick up a men’s magazine.
What is Port?
An intelligent quarterly style magazine for men.
What makes it different to the rest?
It does it properly, uses great writers and photographers, and embraces editorial confidence.
Who makes Port?
Dan Crowe, Kuchar Swara and Matt Willey (and 100 or so contributors from all over the world!)
Who reads it?
Anyone interested in great writing, strong photography, style, food, and coffee.
Why do you work in magazines?
We love bringing ideas and people together. It’s unbelievably exciting seeing stories you have commissioned come together over two or three months…
Aside from the print magazine, what else are you involved in?
PORT has its app, the website, the events, and we are looking at PORT products very soon…
What would you change about Port if you could?
Having some set up money would have helped: we have no investment, and at times its been hard to see how we were going to get it off the ground. But we are free and independent and that counts for a lot.
Where do you see Port in five years?
As the world’s biggest selling men’s magazine, with its own events programme, live radio, products range and drinks distillery.
