My name is Michael James Coates. I’m 25 years old. I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland.

Double Vodka Lemon started as an experiment to see if I was capable of producing something that both I and other guys would love. I studied Fashion Buying and merchandising in college and currently work for a major retailer so I had the technical skills to do it. In Winter 2013 I released a set of Tshirts and Shorts and within a few days I knew the experiment was a success.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported me so far and welcome all the people who are yet to discover Double Vodka Lemon.

All my work is inspired by what I am surrounded by in gay culture. I try to find both sexy and humorous imagery and work this into each piece.

All the patterns are unique and each line is made in extremely limited quantities. I want you to feel like you are wearing something exclusive, unique and special.
