Nami Nguyen is one sartorial force to be reckon with in the Melbourne menswear scene. He grew up submerged in the Australian culture where he went through many phases of personal style such as grunge, skate, b-boy, street, back to skate until he eventually found his great love for the “classic sartorial elegance”. Nami is also incredibly knowledgeable and passionate when it comes to tailoring, and expressing individual style, oh and not to mention…one of the biggest shoe collection of leather shoes and sneakers I have ever seen.
Behind all his tough looking tattoos, Nami is really an all rounded genuine guy whom I have the pleasure of working with, and calling my friend.
We can’t wait to share more of our work when he launches his own lifestyle brand, but for now we hope you are inspired by his “dressed up denim” look.

Last Friday, I finally got to meet the man behind the classic Tassle Loafers.
Christian Kimber is one humble and dapper footwear artisan to watch. British born, Melbourne based footwear and accessory designer who handcrafts the most incredibly comfortable and luxurious pair of shoes that I’m aching to wear (sadly I have tiny feet so I couldn’t fit into anything). His latest AW15 collection, the Passport collection is inspired by various menswear genres and lifestyle environment. Christian’s design philosophy have always been a reflection of what he and his friends would wear which makes perfect sense. Just hang with his crew and you will see why, because all his mates are seriously dope, down to earth and stylish.
Me and my bromies. Christian on the right of me.
Every sole has a story to tell, just like the Bryon sneaker above – the blue wave design symbolises the waves from Bryon Bay.
