David Dewese and Jerry James are American Viceroy. They met in high school, write rock albums, and design clothes.

In 1989, David and Jerry met as teenage misfits at summer camp. Eventually, they bonded at the school lunch table over a growing obsession with rock-and-roll and clothes while classmates traded punches and read the sports pages.

This is their first collection. It's small, but as they say, one has to start somewhere. American Viceroy was started in 2007 at bars, front porches, kitchen tables, and churches in and around Tennessee and Texas. There will be more.
