Bosco is an understated guy. Softly spoken and not overly flashy, he's a stylish individual with an eye for classic pieces that marry well and are built to last. We stopped Bosco in South Melbourne where he shyly agreed to let Makers of Melbourne take his picture. His ensemble comprised a pair of New Balance sneakers, classic Levis jeans, Beams Boy scarf & Breton style tee by APC.

Andrei is the co-creator of the new Melbourne based Barnaby Shop sock company & we had to admire his cycle print socks when we stopped him ask for a photo. Andrei was shot in South Melbourne wearing a classic pair of 'Jensen' calfskin cap toe oxfords from Santoni.
Head of the Chin Chin restaurant kitchen, Ben Cooper is Melbourne's most fashion forward chef. He's a man with a particular fetish for footwear, photographed in a pair of waterproof boots by Norwegian brand Swims
Stewart was hard to miss in what has been a very quiet week in Melbourne (where are all you guys hiding?). In town from Hong Kong on a lightning visit to see friends, Stewart was busy falling in love with our Melbourne way of life. Just as we were falling for his style and his sensational Dries Van Noten printed canvas derby's. Stewart's style advice? "Don't think about it, just go with what you love".
We loved Tyson's whole act this week. Caught having a sneaky day off in Melbourne with his fiancee, Tyson's relaxed style and attention to detail made for an eclectic mix. We especially love the English country gent upper-half with the Shibuya bottom half. Losers Uneaker 'Shark'
Jeremy is wearing a classic American Redwing boot known as the Iron Ranger. A quintessential American brand, Redwing has named this no nonsense boot after the rugged residents of the Minnesota Mesabi Iron Range.
We busted Melbourne brothers Jim & Tony on a little mid-week shopping spree yesterday and couldn't resist their infectious energy for style. The boys told us they are exploring their tastes and favourite labels - believe us when we say they were human encyclopedia's of cool. Clearly both have a taste for quality footwear. Jim is wearing a limited edition suede Roux derby by Loake Bros & Tony his favourite, a Common Projects polished binder derby. Long Live Melbourne Style.
We bumped into James yesterday as he was whipping around town running errands before heading overseas to attend the wedding of a friend. A Sydney 'expat' now enjoying the Melbourne life, James is very much our type of man. Full of character and energy, and always well put together. His beautifully cut and understated three-piece, the full knit tie and of course a classic chestnut Dior derby to bring it all together on a wild and wet Melbourne morning.
Thian is brand manager of Losers Sneakers. We photographed him outside of 'Up There' store in South Melbourne where he, along with designer Motoki Takanaka were preparing for the launch party of their SS13 collection. Thian was wearing the Losers Schooler Lo.
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.
Paul was photographed in South Melbourne wearing a pair of classic straight cap oxford Connaughts in brown suede from the Men's Main Collection by Crockett & Jones.
Marc in South Melbourne wearing Mariano Rubinacci 'Marphy' loafers. The Marphy was created during the 60's, initially as a home shoe, before being embraced by artists such as Andy Warhol. The evolution of the shoe & a change of materials means this comfortable suede & leather "slipper" is now able to be worn on the street.
