A little over a year ago, Nowhere opened its doors on Dublin’s Aungier Street, the city's oldest merchant street. The store brings a progressive cut of today’s menswear designers and labels to the Irish capital (and their online store).

The Nowhere name is a commentary on where masculinity and menswear are headed today, partly rooted in frustration, partly in celebration. Founders Brian Teeling and David Erixon explain: ‘We were frustrated with confining ideas and ideals around masculinity; frustrated at the nostalgia that seems to dominate the armor of men; frustrated in trying to find clothes we love in a city we love. Equally, Nowhere comes from a place of celebration – celebration of magnificent clothes; the people behind them; talent, creativity, courage and beauty.’

Nowhere is not only a retail project. It aims to be an active participant in the discourse of masculinity. The online publication Nowhere People and monthly podcast A Nowhere Man promote an ongoing exploration of masculinity through the eyes of academics, artists, designers and writers, both with an Irish and global outlook.

Most labels sold here are appearing for the first time in the Irish market, among them Irish designer Alan Taylor, Matthew Miller and Craig Green. Other labels include: A Kind of Guise, CMMN-SWDN, Sun Buddies and Filthy Club.
