David,
Have you thought about pursuing licensing any other rock bands with distinctive logos? You know, something kinda like this

Or maybe this

Or perhaps even this

Yes...those and more have been offered to me in one form or another but we can't sign with everyone. It's just not possible to introduce that many licenses, at least not for me.
I've had to pass on at least half a dozen licenses in the last 12 months...everything from Metal Gear Solid to Bon Jovi...Game of Thrones to gallery artists looking to have branded clothing...oh and board games too.
I would have loved to take them all, and even though we've sold millions since starting out in 2009...in the grand scheme of things we're still a relatively small company.
What's important is that we've shown significant growth year after year since UD Replicas started in 2009, and as appealing it would be on paper to see us double our sales from year to year....it's also a double edged sword for so many other reasons...and we have to always have total control over production and quality at all times. If and when the times comes that we can expand yet again, it'll be weighed out heavily against the prospect of 'only if we can deliver as promised.'
Selling is not our problem, the goods sell themselves, but we do have to produce them once we have sold them and production is a very complex beast for us. :)

This is really cool.

From all of us at UD Replicas, we'd like to thank Mr. Stanley for his kind words about our ever expanding KISS line.

Re: KISS™ Themed Outerwear and Motorcycle Suits by UD Replicas.


This weekend was the KISS Expo in Indianapolis Indiana and here's what we had on display, and the MONSTER jacket was shown publicly for the first time there too.

The MONSTER jacket is an exact replica of what Gene Simmons wears on stage in the current Monster tour. We acquired a set of armor direct from the costume makers and duplicated every dent, bevel, shape and detail to respectfully replicate his stage costume. The entire armor is made out of form molded leather over motorcycle grade body armor...so it's strong, and extremely light weight.
While this was not part of the original thought process in the engineering of this MONSTER jacket, as it turns out the MONSTER armor is fully removable from the base leather jacket. This means that you can wear the armor on it's own, as well as the base black leather jacket on it's own. Again, while not part of our original design it did become necessary for cleaning purposes but this does now open a whole bunch of new possibilities for wearing this jacket. :mrgreen:

At the end of the day, it's a biker jacket...yes, but like all leather jackets they are multi purpose. Musicians wear leathers on stage while playing, now think about wearing something like this on your next gig! Just the armor or as a set, either way it's fully removable so the possibilities are literally endless. 8)
Not only but the inner CE Approved Body Armor inside of the black leather jacket are also removable, so if you ride a bike...you're covered. If not, then pull them out and you really do have the sickest leather jacket on the planet!

The elbow armor pivots up and down as you move your arms so it too is functional.

The spikes are injection molded ABS plastic and yes they too are removable from the jacket.
With all of our current licensed goods across the board, this by far has pushed us into new fabrication territory and I can't thank you all enough for the kind words and wonderful feedback we received at the show.
Wear it Loud and Proud really does seem fitting for this one!!

Paul's Starchild jacket has now received some much needed bling, by ay of studs running across the vertical sleeve seams and shoulders. The jacket is so much more Rock 'n Roll now and definitely suits Paul's Starchild persona.

Both the Starchild and MONSTER jacket will now be up on our website for pre sale as soon as we shoot them for the site.

Happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our goods. :)

David

Here's a few more clearer pics of the MONSTER Jacket...Once again, this is all leather. The added bonus with this jacket is that the Gene MONSTER Armor can be worn with or without the underlying base leather jacket. Just imagine the possible uses...this goes far beyond biker wear. :up
