100% Organic Photo Competition – Winner #7 Ryan Bollwerk
WHO ARE YOU? My name is Ryan Bollwerk. I grew up in Cape Girardeau, a small town in Missouri. When I was 18 I moved to NYC and have been here for the last 13 years!
WHAT´S THE STORY ABOUT YOUR PHOTO? I was taking a trip to one of my favorite places in the world...Glacier Park Montana! I hadn't been in over 15 years and wanted to go before all the glaciers had melted away for good. I had been there when I was younger and remembered a hike I would take that was on the ridge of mountain pass. Every time I went there would be these mountain goats up there. They were still there!!! I thought what better image for an organic green company like Nudie Jeans is to have these mountain goats in one of the most beautiful backdrops ever!
WHEN DID YOU FIRST FIND OUT ABOUT NUDIE JEANS? I first learned about Nudie Jeans when I was helping a friend move. I was helping him pack and he came across some old Nudies he had worn to death. He offered them to me and I wore them everyday after that until I needed to replace them. Ever since then I have been hooked on Nudie Jeans!
DO YOU HAVE ANY NUDIES? I have about 10 pairs of Nudies or more!
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FORWARD TO ABOUT THE ITALY TRIP? We're going to Italy?? Then I look forward to parts of the world I haven’t seen before and meeting friends I haven’t met before. How summer camp is that? But the truth.
WHAT DO YOU PREFER, DRY OR PREWASHED JEANS? Prewashed.
WHAT FIT IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY? Thin Finn. Besides the great cut, styling and comfort, it’s a jean that finally gives me a great backside. Ask any of the ladies and gentleman of the East Village in NY! ;)
