who we are

Hey, I'm Matt - I believe I'm part of a generation who ranks social conscience and artistic expression over personal financial gain. 

I head up the YOUNG+IDLE collective; a growing group of fiercely inspired and skilled artists and dreamers who share the same belief.

Through the unified endeavour of everyone involved, from customers to collaborators, we're are creating a shared sense action and empowerment.

Our philosophy

“So it occurred to me that since my real vote is useless... that leaves the only vote anybody’s got, this dollar bill.

...when I wanna buy a record, I’m gonna take my dollar bill and go to some corner guy with his weird, kooky little shop. I’m not giving this to Virgin Megastore... I aint gonna go to Gap no more. I wanna go to Ditsy Louie’s Junk Clothing Box.

This is my new philosophy. Use your vote, your dollar bill is your vote.”

Joe Strummer
