Makers of Melbourne

Welcome to Makers Of Melbourne – the ‘go to’ guide for our technically integrated age.

Makers Of Melbourne has been created to consume and assimilate Melbourne culture. We're male focussed, but not male specific, sorting through the dross to weed out the creative stars, standout events and stylish folk that make this city unique. 

MOM aims to embrace all facets of what makes this city a creative hub. Our aim is to inform without condescending – to keep you abreast of what’s going on without regurgitating Press Releases & to seek out this city’s sub cultures to give our readers the inside scoop on what’s REALLY happening with the people who make Melbourne Melbourne.

Bradford Full English

ku130203StreetFashion1296 We photographed Bradford wearing a pair of striking buckled boots by quintessentially British footwear  label Jeffery West.

Born and bred in Northampton, the historical centre of the British shoemaking and leather industries, childhood friends Mark Jeffery and Guy West began their career in shoemaking at the age of 16. Jeffery West imbue their brand with the craftsmanship, quality, and pedigree available in having shoes manufactured in Northampton using traditional techniques, while  putting their own slant on design. Being influenced & inspired by a swath of British swashbucklers, wits &  hell raisers (such Keith Richards, Oliver Reed, Peter O’Toole, Brian Jones & Richard Burton, who give their names to Jeffery West's styles) - you couldn't come across a more Rock 'n' Roll footwear brand.
