Behind the Scenes with Little Man's Closet

Today’s feature is all about charming little men, lovingly styled by the talented Sherene from Little Man’s Closet. Sherene specialises in old school hats, ties, suspenders, and clothing, and her garments are perfect for photo shoots, special occasions, or a treasured gift. I hope you enjoy our behind the scenes interview, giving you a little sneak peek into the women behind the label.

Little Man’s Closet (LMC) is…

A creative project of Sherene; wife to an amazing and supporting husband and the lucky mum to one very dapper, handsome and loving little man, Oscar – the inspiration behind Little Man’s Closet.

I have always loved all things unique, vintage and handmade. When my little man was born in 2013 I knew exactly the style I wanted to dress him in, however I couldn’t find it, so I made it! And this is how Little Man’s Closet was born.  LMC has been open now for 1.5 years.

My range has been designed with a vintage feel and look, with a modern twist.  All items are handmade with love and care to a very high standard right here in Melbourne. I offer a limited editions collections, with many items OOAK, to keep things fresh and unique – we can’t have lots of little men dressed the same!

Three things that make my business unique are…

  1. I only do a small run of each design (with a maximum of five sets made from each fabric).

  2. I specialise in custom orders, and also have a range of ready to ship items. I love creating a set exactly what a customer has in mind.

  3. I am a bit unique (maybe strange is the word!) But seriously I do receive lots of feedback from customers that I am helpful with making decisions on the set or look they are after.

The first handmade product that I made for my store was…

Orange plaid newsboy hat, to this day still a favourite of mine!

My favourite memories from my childhood are…

Going boating and fishing every weekend, I love the water.

My go-to song for singing Karaoke is…

Total total eclipse of the heart, not that I ever jump up to sing karaoke, because I can not sing at all!

Currently residing on my bedside table is…

Australian Coastal Homes; we just moved to a beach house and are currently decorating. I love flicking through magazines for inspiration.

My most prized possession (apart from my family) is…

My Olympus OMD camera! I love love love photos, nearly obsessed and I don’t go anywhere without it.

The next handmade item I plan to make is…

A new style of boys hat – think a combo of flat cap and newsboy hat – super dapper and unique is the plan!

Three things that make me smile each day are…

  1. My little boy saying I love you mummy.

  2. Seeing my hubby drive in from work each afternoon

  3. The coffee machine as soon as I wake up!


Thanks so much for sharing Sherene, it was a pleasure getting to know you!
