Deth Killers of Bushwick (Brooklyn) is a motorcycle club and cult brand that just opened their first retail space in downtown Manhattan on the Bowery. What had been an abandoned tire and service station for years has been renovated into a unique shop that curiously only fills the back corner of the prime, cross-street location. The interior has a warm, “DIY” feel with eclectic decoration and a pornographic-esque dressing room. Deth Killers are most know for their famous “asphalt resistant” denim jeans woven with kevlar to help prevent road rash in the case of a fall. The jeans are complemented by amazing distressed graphic tees, hats, patches, and sweats that truly represent their gritty roots. Visit the Deth Killers shop at 348 Bowery in New York City.
