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.

Stewart in Dries Van Noten

ku130710StreetFashion6579 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".

James in Vans x Diemme


James, co-owner of 'Up There' store, was snapped wearing a pair of Italian leather Montebelluna Hiker LX buffalo boots. These limited edition hi-tops from the Vault footwear series are made in partnership between Vans and luxury Italian shoe brand Diemme. The California skate heritage of classic Vans  has been combined with Italian shoemaker Diemme's materials and handmade techniques.


Tyson Losers Uneaker

ku130701StreetFashion5958 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'

Donni Olrik Chelsea

ku130618StreetFashion5102 Donni was on a brief visit home to Melbourne between projects in Bali and Bangkok when we bumped into him this week.  Despite spending the better part of 10 years in Asia steering some of the best clubs, he clearly hasn't forgotten how to run the classic Melbourne winter look.  It was the superbly cut collectable G-Star denim trench that caught our attention, but as we got talking we could see the whole package was a quintessentially Melbourne streetwear masterclass.   The sharply cut black calf Chelsea's just reminding us how easy good style can be.

Brothers in Style

ku130618StreetFashion5120 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.

James Burnished Dior

ku130617StreetFashion5066 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.
