Vanson Chopper Jacket

Vanson Chopper Jacket

(( EDIT: we sold this lovely jacket on Mar 11. But we have another Vanson Highwayman jacket in a 48 TALL! )) The folks at Vanson, a company famous for racing leathers and making jackets only out of very very vigorously healthy cows, have outdone…

It’s getting colder out and also getting dark a lot earlier than it used to. What’s up with that??

Want the merging of two wonderful worlds that can solve all problems? How about this beautiful leather Harley Davidson jacket with orange shoulders and vintage stylings. Vintage patches, diamond stitching on the shoulders and nice embroidery details make this jacket a stunner. And it’s perfect for the fall season.

Exotic Leathers in Search of a Rock Star

Exotic Leathers in Search of a Rock Star

Now, I myself came of age in the late 1970s and early 80s, and it’s important to note that, because you’ll understand what’s in my mind when I look at this jacket. I wonder what David Lee Roth is doin’, you know? I think, Robert…

Dainese Laguna Seca Pro Estiva One Piece Racing Suit

Dainese Laguna Seca Pro Estiva One Piece Racing Suit

This Dainese one piece racing suit glories in the name “Laguna Seca Pro Estiva”. That’s Italian for “goes super fast”. In fact, all day long it’s been zooming at breakneck speed around the store like a giant red and black bumblebee, blindly seeking a motorcycle…

Near-Bomb-Proof Klim Touring Set

Near-Bomb-Proof Klim Touring Set

A matching set of Klim touring gear wandered into the shop the other day. It’s practically brand new, never been worn out, and quite frankly, might survive a bomb going off. This gear is uber durable, super waterproof, and just smartly designed.

Medium jacket, size 30 pants. They would normally retail for over $1500 new right now, but this set? Only $850!

Run in before they’re gone!

Flashy and fabulous…

Dr. Martens Wellington Boots

Dr. Martens Wellington Boots

Sparkling and utterly new and unworn. Not sparkling like vampires sparkle these days, but close enough.

The plaid liner is pretty dang cheerful as well.

This is a darned fancy helmet. Super graphic, super modern, and really stylin’ too.

MOMA Boots, Western-style

If you’re ever on your way to the Wild West, take these boots. They’ll save your life in a pistol-packin’ showdown, because the other cowboy will be staring your feet with his mouth open.

Brown leather is classic and beautiful…

Brown leather is classic and beautiful…

I love brown leather. The warm color tone is something that appeals to me along with the vintage/retro vibe and friendlier feeling. I love all manner of brown leather boots and brown leather jackets but until these chaps walked into the store, I had not conceptualized brown leather chaps. And these certainly don’t escape my love of brown leather clothing!
These vintage chaps are made by Bristol right here in Canada. They are the softest leather on the outside and because they are unlined, you can feel the ridiculously soft suede on the inside. They have a western feel and I love the belt detail at the back. And get this, there’s a matching jacket! Seriously!

Black and White Beauty…

Black and White Beauty…

This jacket is an Original Leather Factory which means that it has been locally made right here in Vancouver. It’s vintage, super clean, and has quilted shoulders in bright crisp white…

It is an oil-tanned leather so it just feels yummy to handle. It has brass hardward and a cute plaid flannal liner that just works…

Trippen Boots

Trippen Boots

Trippen is a funny brand name for boots, no? It’s like selling climbing gear under the brand name Fallin‘, or winter tires under the brand name Slippin‘. But there you go. Trippen.
High fashion. Fancy. Gives you a lot of choices about what to do with your boot laces, for those folks with a touch of OCD. Leather lined, sumptuous outer leather. (I love the word sumptuous, and I don’t use it lightly here.) Rear zipper.

Lookit all the other Trippen boots at Gravity Pope, land of fancy shoes: Trippen for Men / Trippen for Women

These ones are sized Men’s 7, Women’s 8.5, Euro 39
If the shoe fits, come and wear ’em. Watch out for cracks in the sidewalk afterwards though. Just in case.

$169

Hein Gericke while riding with a live eagle

Hein Gericke while riding with a live eagle

This vintage biker jacket comes from an era when adventure came more naturally to us. A time when leather jackets — indeed, leather everything — were improved by the addition of a live eagle perched on your fierce leather gauntlet. That’s because motorcycling actually is…

Police Beaut-ality… the Dehner Top Strap Patrol Boot

Police Beaut-ality… the Dehner Top Strap Patrol Boot

Here’s what I have to say about these Dehner cop boots: 19″ is a lot of boot to climb. Impeccable shine on the toes, all uppers in great condition. Soles worn but not overworn. Leather lined, of course. Men’s size 9, Women’s size 10.5.  18″…

Beer Racing

Beer Racing

Do you like beer? I mean, really really like beer? Are you brave enough to proclaim that love of beer to all passers-by?

Boy/Girl, do I have a jacket for you.

Joe Rocket and Corona together on a cozy wee black textile jacket with elbow, shoulder and spine protection, a zip-in zip-out liner, and all sorts of decorative extras that have everything to do with beer.

Decals are all leather, and the designer has obviously gone slightly OCD and continued the motif all the way inside the jacket, where it proclaims an urgent wish for citrus fruit. As if you’d bring all that Corona and forget the limes. Pfaugh.

Sized women’s medium. Stock #02327.

$132 cold ones.

ps: The small palm trees on the sleeves, they glitter.



Long Steel Heels on a New Rock Boot

Long Steel Heels on a New Rock Boot

I can’t seem to type this post. I’m too busy looking at myself in the heels of these impeccable New Rock boots.

Feel Lucky, Punk?

Feel Lucky, Punk?

The title is a bit of misdirection. That’s because “Feel Lucky, Doom/Black Metal-lover?” doesn’t have a very good ring to it. Although come to think on it, someone into punk could wear this vest too, I mean,  punk vs metal kinda flew out the window…

The Corseted Greatcoat (aka Romance on Horseback)

The Corseted Greatcoat (aka Romance on Horseback)

I want you to close your eyes and imagine, deep in the past, a windswept moor and a night lit solely by the stark full moon. Imagine a fiery-spirited white stallion galloping across it, and you on its back. Now I hope you’ll open your eyes because I’m about to show you a picture of what you’ll be wearing.

This bit of loveliness looks just like a dress, but Northbound Leather calls it a corseted greatcoat. Coat, dress, coat, dress…. I’d say it’s entirely up to you whether you’re wearing some pearly riding pants to match your white stallion on this ride, or whether you’re merely in some anachronistic yet fetching fishnet stockings. Either way, you’ll be cutting quite the figure.
Or hey, take the blue pill (or the red one, I can’t quite recall), and you can be all Matrix-y and swoosh around a dystopian future shooting at computer constructs while looking tremendously well-dressed and impervious to salad dressing spills.
All zipped up, this scrumptious beauty is figure-hugging through the top and waist, draws closer to fit with the built-in-corset at the back, and takes off into a flourish of still more soft sumptuous leather, creating a skirttail that will flare at your movement, or rest over the butt of the aforementioned white stallion.

Northbound Leather wants $1149 for this, which just make me smug to be able to offer it for $500 at East Side Re-Rides — the more so because I can’t detect a single sign of wear, nor a single flaw.

Size women’s medium. Stock # 02551

Come try it on. You bring the horse.

 

 

Frye boots of great wisdom

Frye boots of great wisdom

These great old Frye boots have seen it all, and are just now nearing the end of of their life as footwear. Another year or two of daily wear, and they’ll be entering into an identity as room decor. The leather has achieved a glorious…

Fluevog “Safety Vogs” engineer boots

I didn’t even know Fluevog made these kinda suckers. Did you? No, wait, I checked, and they don’t make them any more. The boots inform me that they’re “Safety Vogs”. Holy high-shine patent leather red accents fancy steel-toed boots, batman! Lined in soft tan leather,…

Dayton boots for a set of quadruplets

Do you know a set of quadruplets who share a thing for nice Dayton boots? Show ’em this page, then, because I have four sets of boots, all sized alike, that would suit all four identical quadruplets. They could switch, depending on what their four-part whims were.

As long as they all had feet Dayton sized 5 – 5.5, which in North American show sizes is a men’s 6 – 6.5, and a women’s 8 – 8.5.

The whole set for $500 (save $60), what the heck!

The boots (from left to right):

1) Utterly custom, one-of-a-kind, square-toe Sidekick style measuring 16″ from the top of the heels on up. Shiny chrome leather. Slender calf. Utterly unworn. Brand stinkin’ new. $230 #02291

2) Rangers, oiltan, bump toe (that’s the name for that saucy curve to the toe box) Barely worn. $100 #02287

3) Classic Dayon Black Beauties. Slight wear and a bit more experience than the other boots. $100 #02288

4) Riders — the motorcycle boot, round toe, engineer-style instep strap. Barely worn. $130 #02290

Wait, it just occured to me — I could sell these one pair at a time to non-quadruplet individuals.

Although, you know, come to think on it, two sets of twins might also do.

 

 

 

Chaps. Very very fancy ass chaps.

Chaps. Very very fancy ass chaps.

So I’m usually kind of a chaps purist, and tend to enjoy just thick, black leather. But these have made me into a convert — they’re super fancy! Two colours of leather, black and tan (if you wanna feel tough in them, think Doberman). The…
