The metal word took notice yesterday as a several-weeks old photo of Chris Brown surfaced with him wearing a custom leather jacket featuring patches from Cro-Mags, Municipal Waste, Excel and more. Thanks to an eagle-eyed Metal Sucks reader,we now know what the back of the jacket looks like.
It turns out that Brown is also indirectly supporting Corrosion of Conformity, D.R.I. and Suicidal Tendencies. But there’s more. If you look at the artwork for Rihanna’s album that was released yesterday, Unapolagetic, the singer (and Brown’s ex – who he hit) is also wearing the same jacket.
Did the two share the jacket? She has been known to share an umbrella (ay, ay ay) before, so maybe the clothes swap was just in keeping with what she’s done in the past. Then again, it looks like either The Exploited patch was either photoshopped out (presumably because she’s already exploited enough already), or each of them picked up a $5,300 jacket from DNA Designs. It’s not like the two can’t afford to splurge a little. You can see Rihanna sporting the jacket after the jump.
