Founded in early 2014. MR. GUMBATRON began as a creative outlet for its founder Lex Mak, an Architect, entrepreneur and self-confessed coffee connoisseur who always valued the importance of dressing well.

This creative exploration has since evolved into the personal lifestyle brand MR. GUMBATRON; which seeks to inspire the modern man to always put his best foot forward,



Lex has an acute eye for style and creative composition; His fascination into structure, materiality and texture extends beyond Architecture and into the world of Fashion. Lex has a unique fashion edge and a real dedication to self improvement.

Formally trained as an Architect, Lex graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Masters of Architecture (1st Hons), He has several years experience working in the Architectural industry, which includes running his own design practice AMAK DESIGNS with a focus on coffee shops and cafe interiors. This design niche was a natural decision as he has 10 years working experience in the hospitality scene (an experienced cocktail mixologist, barista, bar supervisor & event manager to name a few roles).

Lex has since gained a notable following on Instagram for sharing his unique perspective on his two passions of specialty coffee and menswear fashion.

Living by his personal motto, “Dress well. Drink well. Live well”, his pursuit in this line has led him to working with many reputable brands such as Cathay Pacific, David Jones, Myer, GQ Australia, Mr Porter, Farfetch, Esquire, St. Ali Coffee and more

MR. GUMBATRON was earlier this year listed as one of the '25 most stylish Australian men on Instagram' by Man of Many.

His unique style, aesthetic and influence has proven to be a valuable creative asset to many well established Australian menswear designers, as well as a plethora of new and emerging menswear and lifestyle brands both locally in Australia and in Asia (Hong Kong).

Positioning himself as an Architect, Entrepreneur and Style icon, Lex is the Creative Director and face behind MR. GUMBATRON. With the vision of inspiring others through his life, coffee adventures and style cues, 

Perfect for those looking for menswear inspiration within the daily grind.
