When we met Julian Consuegra AKA @ironkoopz a few years ago, his clothing line Stray Rats was already garnering a cult following but from that first meeting, we definitely saw an even bigger future unfolding for him. As the creative forces behind the brand, Consuegra and a small group of friends have continued to run the business organically, from designing and photographing the product to website duties and fulfilling orders by hand. While the brand is Miami-based the CEO, if you will, has kept traveling and involvement in music and art communities: a priority.
This month we caught up with Julian in the 305 to talk about everything from Hardcore to FUCT and Hook-Ups. Check out our full conversation on page 54 in the newest issue of NYLON Guys and the history of Stray Rats in past cookbooks HERE. You can cop the T-shirts the above gallery from the brand's current season HERE and follow Consuegra on Twitter HERE.
Enhorabuena por todo julian y continuó hermano éxito!
