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.

Pio Autumn Palette

It's been an extremely mild Autumn in Melbourne, which has given us snappers a fantastic array of colours, texture and style.  We feel like we are witnessing the rise and rise the 'Australian Man' in fashion terms - equal parts attentive, indifferent and unique.  Pio just about summed up Autumn this week, spotted wearing a palatte of colour and style that has defined Autumn 2013.  Sure, the good shoes bring it all together, but the attention to detail is what makes it all so relaxed.

Andy Clarks Collab

Andy is the owner of renowned Adelaide menswear store Right Hand Distribution (with whispers of a Melbourne RHD soon to open). We photographed Andy outside De Clieu in Fitzroy wearing a striking pair of boots designed in collaboration between Clarks Originals and cult Japanese label Atmos. 

Shane DSquared2

We see Shane around from time to time, generally understated but always sharp.   He obviously knows a thing or two about cuts, materials and quality.  Not too under the radar, not too over the top.  We like this emerging genre; Melbourne guys that were probably skaters or who are perhaps in creative and who still rock their stuff, but in a more subtle way.  The DSquared2 in full grain navy calf the cherry on a very nice little cake.

Ross in Vanishing Elephant

After all the understated style we've been seeing lately we were stopped in our tracks by Ross' vintage vibe.  He may be a little young to remember the Buffalo look coming out of London in the late 1980's but with this combination of hat, shirt and Vanishing Elephants, Ross could have stepped straight out of the pages of iconic UK style magazine 'The Face'.

Barry Humphries in Grenson

ku130214StreetFashion2011 Sometimes the stars align - Your path crosses with a stylish gentleman, he's wearing a fine pair of Grenson Dylan's in Cobalt Suede, you ask to take his picture, he agrees & he just so happens to be Barry Humphries. One of Melbourne's most iconic (& sylish) figures, the former Dame Edna character actor was an absolute delight to shoot despite suffering from serious jetlag.
