Back when I was writing about music for the Observer, one of my favorite underdog bands was the Foxymorons, the Mesquite-born duo of Jerry James and David Deweese. Hadn’t thought about them in a while, at least until this morning, when a studio-owning FrontBurnervian passed along this blurb from Valet. mag about James and Deweese’s new pajama-inspired clothing line, American Viceroy. The FBvian even helped pick out a quote from said blurb:
Casual, idiosyncratic and a tad preppy, the pieces are more Wes Anderson than Hugh Hefner. “Yeah, Hefner is the antithesis of what we’re doing,” says Jerry James, who co-designs the line with David Dewese–both native Texans who run the American-made label’s operation (including production) out of Fort Worth.
