After a Melbourne Fashion Festival debut, Nobody Denim launches its winter menswear collection

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NOBODY DENIM

WORDS BY EMILY HOLGATE

The timeless and durable winter staple.

Cult-favourite Naarm-based label Nobody Denim is known for its dedication to local manufacturing and timeless denim pieces. Founded in 1999, the brand opened its Fitzroy factory in 2010, known as the Denim Laundry, before launching a second manufacturing and design facility in Thornbury in 2014.

Now, Nobody Denim is reintroducing menswear after debuting its winter collection at Melbourne Fashion Festival this year. Although the brand has run menswear lines in the past, the recent demand for men’s clothing in 2022 inspired founders and brothers Nick and John Condilis to create a new range – including straight and slim-leg designs in five different washes.

When the Condilis brothers started the label in ’99, they outsourced fabric and cultivated designs in the back streets of Melbourne. With an ethos based on integrity and creativity, Nobody Denim quickly grew to establish a strong following across the country by focusing on quality materials and adhering to customer needs.

The label is also committed to sustainability and is accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia, meaning employees are paid fairly and work in a safe environment (two of the major issues with fast fashion brands).

As co-founder and chairman John says, “the benefit of being a family-run business with [the] majority [of our] manufacturing here in Melbourne is we’re able to pivot and align our resources to where there is demand – and in doing so, ensure minimal waste.

“With denim trends becoming increasingly androgynous, together with the countless requests over the past few years for menswear, we are so happy to launch this collection,” he says of the new range.

In a variety of timeless styles, the line includes washes from solid black, to three shades of indigo including vintage styles and a distressed black wash. The entire range is focused on mid-rise cuts, made with dull antique and nickel hardware, with handmade whiskering and brushing for that authentic vintage look. The entire process, including sewing, washing and finishing, is completed at the Fitzroy factory.

 

The new collection features classic styles such as the John Taper jean with a traditional, unyielding fit, or the Jimmy Slim – named after the Condilis brothers’ father, Jim – featuring a straight-leg cut with intricate seaming through the leg, which comes in Lakehouse, Worn Blue and Dark Coal washes. 

Or, if you’re after a more modern style, the Nico Skinny jean is a comfortable, slim fit without being too tight, available in Midnight Black, Blue Mist, Dark Indigo or Twilight Blue. Better yet, the whole collection comes in sizes 28 through to 38. 

The jeans can be styled with jumpers, jackets, tees or coats, and fall to an ideal length for pairing with your favourite sneakers or Dr Martens. As the styles boast a classic look and are made to stand the test of time, they’re the ideal staple for not only this winter, but all seasons to come.
