    I dunno' how many of you are familiar with this label, but it's based on the alliance of two of NY's biggest and baddest motorcycle gangs, and the clothing has been featured in GQ several times. Well, in the newest issue they have a great belt and direct you to the company website. Well, I went there and all they have is T's. Anyone know where I can find ICRvs.DethKillers accessories also?

    Where do you live? I've seen that stuff at some stores here in NYC.

    Are these guys for real?

    *Not for Real*. The "legend" is completely made up - from reliable sources. Pretty fun story though, isn't it.

    Sounds like great marketing to me, along the lines of those two guys in the old Bartles & James commercials. What a great way to give a new clothing line instant street "cred."

    No, it's real. The bike clubs even have an official website I believe, which you can link to through the clothing site. My cousin lives in the area and said he's familiar with the Innercity Raiders or whatever they're called.

    But yeah, I need a place to get this stuff online because I live in VA...

    Hmm, I don't know about that. From the website:
    Fun, and kinda camp, but not real. In a twist, though, the label may help create a bike club, since there's a promotional track day advertised on the website (one of the designers is an avid biker, I hear)...

    JurassicJon,

    Your cousin's fibbing. Either he didn't want to look stupid by net knowing, or he's really put one over on you. In the latter case, you've got to get a good one ready for the next time you meet.

    *Sigh* It's promotional material. Really.

    Oh, by the way, real bikers would kick the a** of anyone who looked anything like the skinny fashion dudes that model the clothing. There was a white pillbox building with bars on the windows (there were one or two little ones) about a block from my high school that the Outlaws (an associate gang of the Bandidos, I think I read somewhere.) Those guys did not wear flared jeans.

    My favorite part is the "fill out this online form and join our gang" page...

    My thoughts exactly... hence the "are these guys for real question."

    Yea, and then the form to "join our gang" it just didn't add up.

    Anyways, they do make some pretty cool clothes.
