The NAZIS were well dressed murders who wanted to do away with the mentally chanelleged, homosexuals, people of color & Jews. They were all about exterminating those that did not fit into what they thought was the “ideal” race. It’s a trip how many corporations, ones that still make millions today, got their start by being a part of this notorious fucked up racist regime. One of them being the very well respected fashion icon, Hugo Boss, who created many of the uniforms for the Nazi Party. Actually, Hugo Boss himself joined the National Socialist Party in 1931, which led to him getting the contracts to make the uniforms for these small-minded racist assholes! I wonder what his company would have become if he did not enslave over 140 workers during World War II? I find it interesting that people like him and Coco Chanel worked together with the Nazis, but still have so much respect amongst the rich elite, and the poor masses, of today. Also, I can’t understand how many people in the underground scene think it’s cool to take on the aesthetic of these fascists pigs. These same people should try walking around in KKK robes in South Central L.A. so they can get the shit beat out of them. Dressing like a Nazi is just really insentive and dumb on so many different levels. Anyway, check out the Hugo Boss Nazi Collection right here and now. Also peep this list of 11 corporations that did business with Hitler, and still have economic influence over the world today!

I have been searching for years for good vintage leather pieces, and top of my list has been a really rad moto jacket. I have finally found it from a company I have a huge amount of respect for – Deadwood Leather out of Stockholm, Sweden. After starting a vintage retail shop on Södermalm, Carl and Felix decided to focus on creating a company based on sustainability in fashion, recycling leather and denim goods and turning them into masterpieces of radness! Many of you can surely sympathise with me about the difficulty of finding the perfect vintage leather jacket, one that fits beautifully and tight and makes you look fucking rock n roll. These guys know what we are looking for, and their jackets are lovingly crafted into the perfect fit out of soft, broken-in vintage leather. Deadwood Leather takes inspiration from 70s and 80s punk rock, and they hit the nail on the head. They keep it simple – their bread and butter are the moto jackets and vests in black or brown leather for men and women, and they also do a unisex denim jacket with leather sleeves which was what first attracted me to their company. It’s a perfectly soft denim vest with black leather sleeves, and I feel like a winner when I wear it! Plus, because I am not a fan of buying new leather for various reasons, I really appreciate the sustainable aspect to their company and that recycling is at the root of their business. They also do a rad leather 6-panel and some other styles like a leather bomber and leather apron. Their quality is outstanding and their styling is perfect. Check out what they have to offer below…you can pick Deadwood Leather jackets up in boutiques around the world and in their online shop!
For a while now, I have been a fan of DEATH/TRAITORS from afar, so today I want to share my love for this brand with the world! This gear is printed and designed by one man in NYC – Alex Heir in Brooklyn. If you are looking for clothes created by a punk for punks, then DEATH/TRAITORS is for you. What I really dig about this brand is the way Alex is able to convey strong messages with symbols and text, which is not an easy task. DEATH/TRAITORS tees have an anarcho vibe about them but never come off as preachy. When you buy clothes from this brand, you are supporting someone who supports punks worldwide to the fullest. Alex has a style of drawing that is all his own, so you won’t see a bunch of heads wearing the same shit! Check out the just released DEATH/TRAITORS Summer 2013 line below…Alex also plays in a rad dark punk band called SURVIVAL…more about them later – stay tuned!
Agoraphobic Nosebleed just collaborated on some sick tees and hats with Japanese store OSOMALO, with the artwork by Yuzuru Namiki. Namiki has also done illustration for bands like KYLESA and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, and his “gore-pop” style works perfectly with Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s aggressive sound! This is an official band merch collaboration, done in typical high-quality Japanese style, and the products are available only on OSOMALO’s site, but they do ship internationally. While you’re there, you can also check out some of the other sick merch available, like tees from Pallbearer, Ba-Ku, St Vitus, SUNN O))) and more!

We’ve brought back Black Heavens and Bloodseed by Desecrator, Black Majesty by Alexander Brown, Constellations by Natvres Mortes Illvstration and Crown of Eyes by Halseycaust on both tees and tank top, plus we have a CVLT Store-only run of black/grey tie dye tees and tote bags.

Lots of rad photos below!
Osteal Jewelry is run by horticulturist and jewelry designer Amanda Joe Langston in Seattle. It is animal bone jewelry, but all materials are sourced and crafted cruelty free. Crafting animal bones and salvage into jewelry is popular with some folk these days, so I thought I’d go through all the questions folks send Amanda regarding the crafting process. I hope this interview will be helpful to other folks who are messing around with bone scavenging and jewelry making, as well as interested in one of a kind nifty designs from Osteal Jewelry.
Will you give the readers of CVLT Nation an introduction to Osteal Jewelry?
Osteal is a line of cruelty free bone, hair, teeth and occasionally fur jewelry (with some wood and brass thrown in, for good measure). I wanted to use natural items, while not creating more garbage for the world… Plus I wanted a way to pay tribute to the wild bits of life. All items are found/scavenged – nothing comes from factory farms, fur farms, trapping or trophy hunting. I’ve been vegetarian for over ten years and having ethically sourced materials is extremely important to me, and i hope to my customers.
We have been doing CVLT Nation’s Favorite Tumblrs for a while now, and it only makes sense that since I spend too much time trolling Instagram that I start a CVLT Nation’s Favorite Instagrammers feature! We don’t follow too many people because I like my feed to be quality over quantity, so today I am giving you my top 3 so far – NYC iPhone photographer Daniel Arnold, Montreal’s Ovate clothing and Philadelphia’s Bloodmilk Jewelry. These three consistently post photos that I have an emotional response to, whether it be to their latest creation, a stunning, haunting scene or a moment of hilarity. I am simply in love with whatever Bloodmilk and Ovate make, so it makes sense that I follow them to see what new items they have that I can dream about owning one day that I am not living on a tight-to-nonexistent budget. Bloodmilk often features work by other talented artists as well as curiosities and oddities which inspire my posts and makes me feel good about the endless well of creativity in the world. Ovate posts her own stunning clothes as well as beautiful shots of Montreal, her studio/loft space and recently old photos of her Quebecois family. Daniel Arnold captures the complexities and eccentricities of New York City in his candid street and subway shots. His photos make me laugh with humanity rather than at it, and there is often a deeper message underlying his images that was completely unintentional by his subjects. Check out some shots from my favorite Instagrammers below…
I just might be obsessed with Japan. Having been there many times, I can honestly say it’s one of my favorite places in the world! When it comes to punk culture, Japan’s has always hit the spot for me. Going to live gigs there is something special – I have never heard shows as loud as in this country. They have some of the sickest record stores on the planet, plus they have been able to keep the peace punk flag waving high! Then there are the products that you can get in Japan that, to me, always seem to be on the next level. This fact can be seen on the FUUDOBRAIN/strong> website where you can find the sickest CORRUPTED hoodies I have ever seen! Plus this website is full of sick tees with jumbo prints. I’m just just saying, when I saw their John Heartfield tees I almost lost my shit! FUUDOBRAIN also carries Black Means, and their own in-house brand has killer pieces. Their web store is open to international customers – it might be pricey, but Japanese quality is always worth it! Personally, I’m saving up for the CORRUPTED hoodie and the FUUDOBRAIN side bags!
