What is 1924us?
To create a faceless community. To appreciate the ages before us. To create an extension of ourselves. 1924 was developed as an outlet for creativity during Christian Watson's first year in Architecture school, out of it a garden grew from a single seed. The idea for this brand is to make sure that historical pieces are survived by us, found in rough conditions and restored to a place where they can be thoroughly appreciated. Our goal is to support our community, which is every community, regardless of political belief, religious ideals, sexual preference, etc. History affects all of us in grave and miraculous ways.
Why 1924 and not another year?
When i was 17, right before i left for my first travels alone which took me across the continent to the the Eastern side, my nana gifted me a small dictionary booklet meant for a vest pocket. It was dated from a wife to her husband. It solidified my belief in small acts of integrity that make us who we are. It doesn't matter what you believe so long as you know what you are doing is good for the whole of the world, and not just yourself. During the 20's there were many, many social standards we do not agree with but integrity was far more prominent in the everyday life than it is now. We want to revitalize that integrity in our peers so that the world ahead of us is a better than how we entered.
What does the "us" in 1924us mean?
Us. 1924 was not created alone, it was created by interactions with others and built up by more than myself. Together and only together, is why the brand is alive at all. You are a part of 1924 just by reading this.
How did you lose your front tooth?
I was being chased by girls in year 6 and I looked behind me to see how close they were. As I turned around I ran straight into a pole and knocked several teeth out and became the toothless mongrel I am today. So here i am, a scoundrel of sorts and toothless at that.
