Rock N Roll Authenticity

When you buy legit, you’ll notice the difference in the design, print and quality. Your purchase will also be supporting your favourite band.

Unfortunately, I see shops riddled with fake band merch. You see it everywhere nowadays, from Trade Me to the shop down the road. Most of this stuff is bought from Chinese replica shops and are cheap knock offs. By buying these items, all you are doing is encouraging sweat shops in China (and ripping off your favourite band).

Fake products are unfair on you and the band. You’ll end up with non-original copy of an item (compromised quality and design), and the band doesn’t make a cent.

A life of Band Merch

Twisted Thread Braden Dawson Band Tshirts

I'm Braden Dawson, the founder and owner of Twisted Thread. I’ve been buying band merch since I was about 14. Typically I go for USA and NZ metal/hardcore bands. The clothes look wicked and I always liked to support artists where I can.

I started Twisted Thread in 2014 when I started thinking why New Zealanders (like myself) have to buy band merch from overseas? Often you have to wait nearly 4-6 weeks for it to be delivered. That's why I decided to start Twisted Thread. I began importing licensed product and rolled out the online store.

You’ll often see me at events around New Zealand. I attend heaps of Metal Gigs, and also enjoy going to Tattoo & Lifestyle expos, Armageddon, stuff like that.

When you buy from my site I’ll personally package and ship the items to you.
