About Nate


Men's Fashion Editor


Currently working in fashion and advertising styling and production, and completing his Master of Art & Design, Nate's journalistic exploits have seen him contribute to a handful of fashion and pop culture websites. With experience in various aspects of the industry, and a keen interest in fashion culture and identity, Nate is eager to explore the style and substance behind menswear in Sydney. Though probably even more eager to see his dream collaboration between Miuccia Prada, Consuelo Castiglioni and Italo Zucchelli one day fulfilled.

Effortless Style

March 17th, 2011 by | No Comments

We all have our favourite labels and boutiques. But there are times we don’t feel like investing our hard-earned cash into something that involves critical self-analysis for hours in front of that wonky shop mirror that surely is making us gents look shorter than we really are…? Online shopping was made for moments like these: no stress, no battling the elements, no blaming store lighting. We like to call it effortless style. And below is a round-up of the best Sydney-based, international and designer luxury menswear e-stores from around the world wide web.

Haute Sport

February 2nd, 2011 by , and | No Comments

Living in a city such as Sydney necessitates that our wardrobe becomes, at least in part, a function of the weather; that our lifestyle shapes our street style. By channelling the active, athletic trend that manifested on the runways of Spring/Summer shows last year, you can stay cool this summer - in both senses of the word.

Trend Watch: Stripes

January 13th, 2011 by | 4 Comments

Yes, stripes. They are back (did they really ever leave?). While not exactly reinventing the wheel, the influence of the stripe has finally made its way from last season’s catwalk to the sidewalk. But, this time around, the genesis of the trend demands a closer look.

Song for the Mute

January 6th, 2011 by | 3 Comments

Only 3 seasons old, Sydney-based menswear label Song for the Mute is no household name. But, with success at RAFW last year, a host of local and international stockists already under its belt, and a killer new A/W collection set to be shown in Paris this month, all that looks set to change.

Season’s Greetings

December 24th, 2010 by | No Comments

You may have noticed things slowing up a bit this week here at On the Streets of Sydney.com. Yes, we’ve been a little preoccupied: stuffing stockings, singing Christmas ‘muzak’ tunes that have been played on repeat in Myer since mid-November, and reading jokes that come with Christmas cracker victories - the sort of jokes you grin at until you realize they sound eerily similar to ones your dad recounted in 1995.

The End of Restriction

December 14th, 2010 by , and | 3 Comments

Men hate feeling restricted; confined. Or so Norwegian designer Per Spook tells us, in the latest issue of Encens magazine. And with the all-too-familiar discomfort of an unforgiving Summer almost upon us, one can’t help but agree. This season keep it ‘free and easy’, as Bart Simpson would say.

With his new Canon G12 in hand, hair swept up off his face, and a clean ensemble that neatly translates European dressing into a distinctly Australian summer, Yvan Rodic, better known to many as the Facehunter, sits down with On the Streets of Sydney.com for a chat and a couple drinks in Surry Hills, his favourite suburb in Sydney for its perfectly relaxed vibe.

Store Profile: Icarus Store

December 3rd, 2010 by and | 2 Comments

Icarus is one of the most renowned and tragically proud figures in Greek mythology. In attempting to escape Crete by flying away on wings that his father had constructed, Icarus ignored advice and ventured too close to the sun. As the wax in his wings melted away, he fell to his death in what is today known as the Icarian Sea. Icarus also remains one of the most popularly referenced Greek figures, lending his name to a relatively recent and welcome arrival in the retail fashion scene for men at 42 Reservoir St, Surry Hills.

Somewhere, Sydney

November 29th, 2010 by , , and | 10 Comments

It’s a little bit Miami. And a little bit Miami Horror (if you were paying attention during the ARIAs… no, neither were we). And maybe a touch somewhere. Not just anywhere. But Sofia Coppola’s ‘Somewhere’. Maybe.
