On the night of May 28, 2009, a popular local nightclub in Melbourne opened its doors for another night of business.
The club was bumping; with a wild dance-floor, filled to capacity and drinks spilling everywhere, a huge crowd had gathered to celebrate the official launch party of a newcomer to the scene. That newcomer was Balmores Clothing.
Oh how much we’ve grown.
2 years ago, armed with nothing but some clean tees and a headstrong desire to take on the streetwear scene, Balmores threw itself into the fray, eager to make our mark.
Fast forward to now and we look back at our beginnings with a smile. Overcoming obstacles, making many friends and mistakes along the way, we’ve grown into the Balmores you see now. But one thing we know has stayed constant is our philosophy; we started Balmores wanting to make great, … Read More »
As the sun sets earlier and the days begin to get shorter, we all want to get away from that chill.
But don’t let the weather cool your style; keep yourself comfortable with the latest addition to our collection, the Balmores Hiatus hoodie.
Also on show is our ever-popular ladies design, the Balmores Passion, reinvented in a new ladies tank singlet garment.

Last weekend the Princes Gardens in Prahran played host to the Converse Block Party, showcasing various local skate, basketball and hip hop talents doing what they do best…
Crowds gathered as some of Melbourne’s finest skaters hit the half pipe at full speed, eager to show off their skills — and grab a piece of the $7000 prize money.
The party could be heard blocks away and with great food and free refreshments an arms length away, it wasn’t hard to settle into the vibe of the party.
A great day in all, and a positive way to show love for the local community!
On a recent lazy Sunday we found ourselves at a flea market in Footscray at the Dancing Dog Cafe.
Handmade wares and items from another era were on display and although not for sale, it seemed the sense of community was being bought by everyone.
After a few drinks, we took a little stroll along the streets, observing with our eyes and our minds…

We recently had the opportunity to touch base with Alonso Majikal on his latest project with Pabs.
MP2 – “Dirty Beats For Lonely Rappers” is an Album created for both beat fans but in particular, hip hop fans.
The album embraces style, drum arrangements, sampling techniques, recording techniques and even the different feel of swing that can be achieved in beat making.
Balmores: What inspires you in your sound?
Alonso Majikal: That’s a tricky question man, if I had to say what inspires my sound is the memory of something that was at one time a classic, you know what I mean. The times of when I think of the classic music, I think the 90s.
It wasn’t until we were rapping that we noticed we weren’t getting the sounds we wanted, because we kept having to borrow instrumentals. We then decided to make our … Read More »
Fed Square in Melbourne was host to a swap meet last weekend and we were there to check out the goods.
Some awesome sneakers and jerseys on offer, and the range of caps was almost too tempting!
Right outside, a classic car club was exhibiting their collection.
Looked like a promising turnout with a good dose of sneakers, clothing and general cool stuff. Glad to see the Melbourne street scene alive and kicking.
