David is the Managing Editor and a partner at Heddels. Starting at Rawr Denim in 2012, David is fascinated by the cultural history and emotional attachment to objects. He's dedicated to only buying things that'll "go the distance" and be used for the duration of their life cycle. Whether that's repairing jeans three dozen times, servicing a 40 year old watch, or watching enough youtube to change the spark plugs on his 2000 Subaru. David is also the creative direction behind our CO-OP series of collaborations, the voice of our Blowout podcast, and makes the photoshop abominations that go above the Sale Finder every week.
We talk with Andrew about everything from his early days in the denim business, how to run a trade show during a pandemic, and manufacturing sustainably.
This week's Rundown features worker's rights in Bangladesh, Depression Era glass, and a bunch of neat leather sections under a microscope.
