What a ride! Back on the 22nd Feb this year, I finally ordered some denim of local denim legend ANDE WHALL. The date may look familiar… 2 hours after I transfered the $$$$ all hell broke loose and Christchurch shat it self. The destruction took Ande’s work space, all his awesmoe denim sewers. Button holers. Rolls of selvege sweetness. All fucked.
Obviously this makes it hard to complete orders! I had faith in the man, so I let it ride. I gave him an open ended time line for them. Make ‘em when you can. Ande has backed himself as well, and is about to get back into it! After spending the last few months hunting out the required machinery, and getting a new work space, he’s got his web site re-furbed and about to start making sweet Denim.
To say I’m stoked is an understatement. Ande has had to fight to keep his dream alive and he’s done it. If your looking for some new jeans, support local!
