Dimebag Hardware To Be Sold At Download!
A clothing line designed by the one and only Dimebag Darrell will be sold in the UK for the first time this weekend at the Download festival.
All-round legend of a woman and Dimebag’s long time girlfriend, Rita Haney will unleash new items from the Dimebag Hardware range into the UK at this years Download festival.
Haney said: “Dime loved playing Download and he loved all of his fans overseas. I am so excited to bring his line, Dimebag Hardware over this summer!”
Dimebag Hardware’s mission: “Since Dime’s vision in early 2004, our goal here at Dimebag Hardware has been to blend heavy metal and clothing with an aesthetic that truly speaks and captures his essence. When Dime started realizing how hard it was to find clothes that he liked to wear, were comfortable, but also didn’t belong to the pop or hip hop world, he found that his style of clothing had become almost obsolete! It was becoming impossible to find camo anywhere, let alone a pair of canvas shorts that didn’t ‘make my legs look like match sticks coming out of the bottom!’ He decided, ‘I’ll just make my own! Let’s let the rocker take care of the rockers for a change!’”
“He sat down and went to work sketching out his ideas and making notes on his ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’ about his own clothing and what he wanted to change. These drawings are compiled on various canvas… from bar and airplane napkins to hotel note pads, anything he could get his hands on when an idea hit, even ‘shit paper… well clean shit paper… haha!’ The man had a knack with his ideas, writing or verbally getting them down. He always found a way for them to be documented.”
