Winner #3 Michael Stanley

#3 Michael Stanley

WHO ARE YOU? My name is Michael; I'm a 22-year-old college graduate from Brooklyn, New York, USA. I'm also an independent hip-hop artist/producer going by the name Scarlet Weapon.

WHAT´S THE STORY ABOUT YOUR PHOTO? I wanted to have a photograph with a concept behind it, as a picture is worth a thousand words, I wanted these words to provoke thought. When I initially had the photo taken, the message I wanted to display was that Nudie Jeans Co going 100% Organic is music to my ears. Now looking back at the photo, it says so much more, but that's up for interpretation.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST FIND ABOUT NUDIE? The first time I heard of Nudie was probably in 2009, I was listening to a freestyle by the late great Stack Bundles, and I heard him say "Nudie Wallet & Jeans". After listening to that, I searched that exact phrase on Google, and got to the Nudie website. At first I just thought they were some cool looking jeans, but then I read the whole philosophy of denim being like an extra layer of skin and truly respected the brand, and knew some day I'd own a pair.

DO YOU HAVE ANY NUDIES AND WHAT FIT IS YOUR FAVORITE? Yes I do, I'm proud to say that since April 2011 till today, I've added 2 jackets, 1 tee shirt, and 9 pairs of jeans to my collection, with more to come as time progresses.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO ABOUT THE ITALY TRIP? I look forward to everything, from the change of environment, to being around others who share a love for Nudie Jeans, and getting to meet the people who actually manufacture the denim I love.

WHAT DO YOU PREFER, DRY OR PREWASHED JEANS? While I do love the washes that you guys come up with, I do feel that dry denim builds more of a connection and relationship, as well as memories with the jeans. My Conny Dry has been bleeding slowly, but beautifully for the past 2 years, unwashed.

WHAT FIT IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY? My favorite fit is the Grim Tim, it fits the best around my waist like no other, and it has just the right amount of slimness in the entire leg that it doesn't squeeze, nor does it give too much room. It also has the perfect rise and yoke for both comfort and aesthetics. Thank you again for the opportunities, I'm still amazed to have won.
