CHANGES TO PYRAMID STUDS

pyramid stud sizes

Leatherpunk now offers the two most popular pyramid stud sizes!  The 3/8 inch stud size is the classic version, the 1/2 inch is the newly added jumbo size.  As shown above, you can see the difference in proportions. Also, going forward chrome coating has been discontinued and all studs (the silver colored ones) will be nickel coated brass, not chrome coated brass.

How to make your cuffs look vintage

This recent photo was sent to Leatherpunk by a customer named Pete that purchased these cuffs 10 years ago.  As you can see, they've held up really well and have a natural patina that only time can create.

Pete told me that the real secret to getting this look is to take care of the leather by cleaning it properly a few times per year.  I really love seeing pictures like this!

Now With Softer Leather!

I'm very excited to announce LP is using an entirely different type of leather for wristbands, bracelets, watchbands and chokers.  This is pretty big news for Leatherpunk!  The new leather is totally custom made just for Leatherpunk by a really great bunch of folks who have worked hard to understand my products.  The new leather is much softer than LP original leather, but still retains many of the visually appealing properties that have dominated LP products for years.  It even smells good.

Double Weave Wristbands Are Back

After an almost two year hiatus, the double weave wristbands are back!  The truth is, they simply got lost in the shuffle when the website was rebuilt.  This classic look is refined with many details such as tapered straps, finished edges, and hand dyed leather goodness.  The addition of optional rivets is new and gives a contrasting look. See these and others in the weave section.

The Hunter S. Or the Johnny Depp? What's the Difference?

A bit of history about the Hunter S. Thompson wristband, as it relates to Leatherpunk:  I'm obviously not the original creator of this cuff, Hunter was photographed wearing it in the 1990s and perhaps earlier.

When I first started doing leather work in 2002, this piece was custom requested numerous times in my first few months of opening Leatherpunk, (even though I didn't sell it or have photos of it on my website).  As it's popularity became apparent, the wristband was added as a standard product at Leatherpunk in 2003.

Now here's where things get confusing, and even I have recently had to backtrack on my claims.  In the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the version worn by Johnny Depp fastens with buckles, or rather, one buckle.  The version worn by Hunter S. Thompson uses snaps to close.  Both have the same stud pattern.  (Johnny Depp was also known to wear a double strapped buckling cuff off-stage, but he has since retired it)

I offer both styles, (plus the off-stage Depp version)and your choice of black or brown leather. 

 

So, to clarify, this is the actual Hunter S. version, this is the Johnny Depp version in his portrayal of Hunter S. Thompson.  Both are the same width (2") and the only difference between the two is the fasteners.
