100% Organic Photo Competition – Winner #2 Anthony Wicks

100% Organic Winner #2

WHO ARE YOU? My name is Anthony, I'm 31 and I'm from Melbourne, Australia.

WHAT´S THE STORY ABOUT YOUR PHOTO? The idea came from the song "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen. I had made the birds and put them in the frame a little while earlier, so then I just made the speech bubbles and took the photo. The denim bird in the middle is actually denim made with organic cotton from India. The frame was from the side of the road and the branch from my yard.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST FIND ABOUT NUDIE JEANS? It was about 2006. I just happened to be passing the Nudie Jeans Concept Store here in Melbourne, went in to have a look and walked out with a pair of Low Slim Jim (as they were called at the time) Dry Comfort. I was told not to wash them for 6 months. Didn't get it until after 6 or 7 months when I washed them. They looked incredible and I still have them. I've been hooked ever since!

DO YOU HAVE ANY NUDIE JEANS AND WHAT FIT IS YOUR FAVORITE? Since my first pair I have added some more. Thin Finn Organic Dry Ecru Embo, I've had them almost five years and came with me when I backpacked in Europe. Two and a bit year old Grim Tim Red Selvage. About two months ago I got a pair of Hank Rey Organic Selvage. I have a few others but these are my favourites.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO ABOUT THE ITALY TRIP? Where to start! I look forward to seeing the hands making the jeans and the sounds on the workshop floor. The Italian countryside and the local foods. I guess most of all I hope to see some amazing things I haven't seen before.


WHAT FIT IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY? Thin Finn is my favourite fit. I think it's a modern day classic that works for so many people. I remember I once saw a women, she would have been about 65, wearing dry heavy selvage and rockin' it! She told me her son suggested she get some dry’s. Good advice I reckon!
