Gravetakers is the darker side of Electric Zombie; no bright colors, no parodies, and a limited color palette of black, white, and red. There are a bunch of great cut and sew items, and the denim jacket is definitely eye catching. It’s available in two colorways – black vest with gray sleeves and hood, or blue vest with black sleeves and hood. The subtle branding really adds to the appeal of this jacket. Details include a metal coffin logo pin over the pocket, a Gravetakers tag on the cuff, engraved buttons. The coolest feature is that the back panel is in the shape of a coffin. Regularly priced at $75, it’s on sale right now for $30 to celebrate Electric Zombie/Gravetakers’ 30K Facebook likes.

I found this on the Old Navy in-store clearance rack for $17. Not bad for a light, weatherproof jacket to wear to ball games. Fits nice, but I don’t know how long it’ll last considering it’s from Old Navy. But how could I pass up a jacket whose color was listed as “panther”? ‘Nuff said.

There’s been a few times that I’ve picked up a cheap jacket from H&M, Gap, Goodwill, the flea market, or what not that I really like and is well made, but it’s missing that extra detail that fits my style. Patches are a great way to add that finishing touch. Quite a few indie brands have been offering up patches as of late, these are the offerings from VNM. I purchased the “Hate What You Will” patch when it first came out, and the other 3 when they dropped early March.

I’ve seen around the internet that a lot of people are adding them to denim vests. I put the “Hate What You Will” patch on my black pleather Converse bomber jacket along with a few other patches (I used double-sided fabric tape so that I didn’t poke holes in the material). I plan on adding the white “Good Things” patch to my Gap camo union jacket, in addition to a Cobra Dogs patch to show some snowboard love. Still trying to figure out what to do with the orange and black “Letterman” patch and the black “Good Things” patch – thinking I might put them on a nylon coach’s jacket.
