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.

Duckie Brown Beaded Wingtip

Vlad was photographed outside the Festival Of Steve - An event celebrating Melbourne's Modern Man that took part at The Kelvin Club last weekend. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a shot of his Florsheim by Duckie Brown beaded leather brogues. These grained black leather wingtip derby's feature a medallion toe and woven multicolor beading detail, finished on a leather sole.

Paul Florsheim x Duckie Brown

We've been hearing about the Florsheim collaboration with Ducky Brown and looking forward to seeing the product on the street.  I know we all feast on new school footwear news, but when one of the old guard like Florsheim reinforces the quality ethic, turns it up a notch and brings in some fresh thinking from someone like Ducky Brown it's just good for everyone.  We caught Paul brightening up a beautiful Autumn Friday morning outside Neapoli in Russell Place and couldn't resist.

Forget the stylist conceived outfits of Cup going celebrities - we're much more interested in what the real guys of Melbourne are wearing at Flemington. Basic black lace-ups seemed to be replaced this year by Brogues in Brown & Tan (coupled with a blue or grey suit) which is MUCH more race appropriate than looking like you've just come from the office.
