What’s your favourite denim item that you own? I’ve been collecting vintage clothing since I was an early teen so having to choose just one denim piece is a tough ask! Aside from my original Wrangler 1952 27MW Denim Shirt and my hand painted AC/DC ‘Dirty Deeds’ jacket from the early 1980’s, its got to be my vintage Black Sabbath Roadie vest from the early 1980’s I scored from an old biker in Pasadena. He actually toured with Ozzy Osbourne and Sabbath in the 70’s & 80’s. I just love that fact that this jacket would have been worn around and travelled with the actual band and their music for so many it and wore it for my Denim Dudes shoot.

Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia Andy spent most of his time as an early teen until now involved in art, graphic design, textile design and silk painting but was mainly obsessed with old muscle cars, band tees and of course vintage denim. This obsession lead to becoming the Senior Designer at Wrangler Australia (VF) / Head Designer Menswear Threebyone.pty ltd and now Founder & Designer Rolla’s Jeans.
