Dust off your suits, gentlemen.

Dust off your suits, gentlemen.

Festival of Steve is making its fifth return to Melbourne this Saturday, setting up shop at the Kelvin Club.

Think of it as a one-day menswear market, covering everything from tailored suits to grooming kits, shoe-shining stalls and all things dapper.

Presented by City Precinct, the free event will see the otherwise exclusive Kevin Club open its doors to the public.

First timers can expect a line-up of local designers, retailers and stylists that celebrate the ‘modern gentleman'.

Australian favourites Article By Courtney Holm (A.BCH), Kimshu, Noble by Noble, Melbourne Watch Co, MET Designs and Trimley and Wawa Chocolatier will make their festival debut this year.

Meanwhile, old faithfuls like Carl Navè - Individually Tailored, Men + Co, Farrah Life Equipment, Fortis Green Apparel, Lord Coconut and Men's Biz will join the program once more.

Free food and wine tastings will also be on offer throughout the day.

As a supporter of Beyond Blue, the festival will accept donations on arrival.
