We’ve collaborated with artist REX on the first ever t-shirt to commemorate BDSM gay bar The LURE (Leather, Uniform, Rubber, Etc). Featuring an ink dot drawing commissioned for the bar’s inaugural 1994 poster. The LURE was located in New York City’s Meat Packing District on 13th Street between 9th Ave and Washington Street. Wally Wallace, owner of The Mineshaft, opened The LURE as the premier leather bar in NYC and enforced a strict dress code for admittance.
Rex is a living American artist and illustrator closely associated with homosexual fetish art of 1970s and 1980s New York and San Francisco. He avoids photographs and does not discuss his personal life. His drawings influenced gay culture though graphics made for famous nightclubs including the Mineshaft and his influence on artists such as Robert Mapplethorpe. 100% of proceeds go directly to REX.
