We love to support gay business and continue our tradition of championing the ones that are getting it right. And we love when people come see us in the studio. And when that guy happens to be the co-founder and CEO of the hottest brands of fetish wear and related products on the scene--Nasty Pig--we're over the moon. David Lauterstein was in Washington, DC for the annual Mid-Atlantic Leather weekend and he took time out of his busy schedule to hang with Dale, Scott & Steve over a few beers.
This guy started with a closet-sized store front in Manhattan, a sewing machine and a measly $50, and over the course of 17 years, has created quite a juggernaut. David shares stories about products that took off; how their super hot new jeans model got the job (see him below...and, um, to our dismay, he's straight!); his absolute commitment to high-quality products and construction; and, his definition of what his brand is really all about: "A nasty pig is a man who walks the street owning it."
