We don’t Jest. Best put the Reddest Vest on your Chest.

We don’t Jest. Best put the Reddest Vest on your Chest.

These photos do not exaggerate; this vest is the reddest red leather we’ve ever seen. It’s like someone found a way to make a solar-powered red. It’s like having your torso dipped in lipstick. It’s like all the reds in the world suddenly blushed, all at once.…

We Love Vintage Vibes!

It’s always cool when pieces of Vancouver’s Leather History come through the shop, like this 70’s Jacket by Gastown Talk LTD. The leather is aged and thick and has the look of 100’s of untold stories from bombing around Vancouver. If vintage vibes and clothing…

Baggy Sweatpants and them Ralph Laurens with the Straps

Baggy Sweatpants and them Ralph Laurens with the Straps

These Ralph Laurens are probably the coolest I’ve seen come from this brand.
Full on bad-ass bootery, they’ve done real good with the design on these.
Nice, thick quality leather with a great red lining inside that gives it a very high-end pop.
The wrap-around buckle cuff is what really sells it for me, very cool feature!

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 race. If you fit a men’s size medium, you better come and get it. It’s creeping everyone out.

Here are pics of the actual suit. The red is an incredibly bright, cold red to the naked eye, and glows hi-vis hot mango under lights. Also we have arranged it fetchingly, don’t you think?

Item #9096
Impeccable, perfect, and as-new. Currently $1499 CAD.

Vaguely Deadpool-Style Leather Suit

Vaguely Deadpool-Style Leather Suit

I love this suit a lot and if I were approximately 3 times as big/tall as I am I’d have swiped it already. As it stands, some heavy metal Viking of a dude out there has an opportunity to look seriously badass. The red and…

Bates Cafe Racer-style Jacket, size 38 tall, 1970s vintage, near mint.

Bates Cafe Racer-style Jacket, size 38 tall, 1970s vintage, near mint.

They had this jacket made for them by Bates of California. They were slim, tall, and had long arms. And lo, they ordered it in the black and the red, with a racy stripe running down the arm, in the way of so many nice cafe racer jackets. It was fashioned with loving care, with Talon zippers, a shiny 70s liner, a personalized tag for Ronnie, and a fleecy warm liner that zips handily in and out, according to the temperature on that particular day in our far, far past.

Toughest Vest in the Store

Toughest Vest in the Store

This vest came to me by way of England, so it’s well-traveled as well as being a shiny, shiny object.

It’s made of a very nice leather, and even the lettering and patches are leather, not just embroidery. I’ve never seen the like, and can’t find its duplicate on the interwebs, so I’m gonna guess it’s a bit of a rarity.

Men’s small or women’s medium

$113 very individual and eye-catching bucks.

Alpinestars Boots from back in the day.

Alpinestars Boots from back in the day.

Okay, so people say “vintage” all the time. As far as I can tell, they say “vintage” when they mean “from 1990, because I was born in 1989, and so stuff from 1990 is, like, old.”

Since I am, like, old, I’ll just say that when I say vintage, I mean older than 1990. Like, back when Alpinestars boots were made of all leather and with leather lining and in Italy and shit.

These boots are beeyootiful.

Size 8.5 men’s, 10 women’s.
