SOLD OUT Anniversary Show Review Part 1

The above picture captures it all, and we are so lucky to have the people we had who joined us for our runway show March 21st. Porn/DJ top diva Chi Chi LaRue (twitter@DJChiChiLaRue) is flanked by drag megastar and RPDR Season 3 winner RAJA ( and fierce drag rock bitch Rhea Litre (@RheaLitre). Thank you also to Jazzmun (below, longtime muse to David and Keith, who also joined our homage to rock and metal.

We MUST thank Durk Dehner, President and co-founder of the Tom of Finland Foundation, who along with VP SHARP both gave us their stamp by attending the show - we should have had Scotty Bee call you  both out! We would not have been able to launch SOLD OUT Clothing without the advice and guidance of Durk and SHARP, so thank you both for being there!

Behind the scenes: the help that Miguel Angel Reyes has contributed to the backstage machine is invaluable, and for that we thank you Miguel!!! Filming part of the backstage shenanigans was our friend Ashley (twitter@AshCamerazzi) who brought welcome runway addition Phenix Saint (twitter@THEPHENIXSAINT). Joining us for the first time to collaborate was hair and makeup team Tommy & James, and we couldn't have asked for a more helpful team to get our models ready in such a time crunch!! Thank you both (twitter@UndieHunk).

To our models (and there were a total of 30 of you!) we must next acknowledge you NON-porn guys that did not get announced when you came out on stage: Model, Stanford graduate student and friend Dwain Leland

Trainers/models/boyfriends John Odom and Jesse Jordan

Choreographer Mario Mosley & boyfriend, writer Justin Hurt

A special thank you to JONNY MCGOVERN, who was joined by two hotties from his "Dickmatized" video, model Miles Davis Moody & Johnathan Myers. If you don't know Jonny's work, check out his YouTube Channel as his new album "The Gayest of all Time" was just released, co-produced by Mr. "Faggoty Attention," Adam Joseph!

Thank you to pinup model and artists' muse Trevor Wayne who rocked the stage debuting not one but two TW by SOLD OUT shirts!

The SOLD OUT Interview - Trenton Ducati, Part 1

First off, a big thank you our good friends of the Jack Manly Blog (twitter: @Jack_Manly) for their second post on our Anniversary Runway Show this Wednesday the 21st at Micky's West Hollywood.

While we very much would have liked to have SOLD OUT poster man Trenton Ducati (twitter: @trentonducati) join us on the runway, Trenton assures us he will be there in spirit cheering us on! Speaking of Trenton, we are excited that he is the first subject of our SOLD OUT INTERVIEW series in which we present people that have really supported us in turn with questions that dig a little deeper. In the case of people that may work in the adult industry, a little bit more than  "Who would you like to fuck next?"

So we posed a few questions to great guy and new friend Trenton Ducati, and here is Part 1:

Hi Trenton, thank you for doing this interview! Describe for us and for your fans your state of mind at this point in your life.

I would say I am incredibly thankful at this point in my life. I am healthy and have a successful business at home. I am grateful everyday that I have the opportunity to exercise and stay in shape because I love it so much. It is nice when people appreciate the work that it takes to build nice physiques. I love my new porn career because I love being in front of the camera and it is a place for me to possibly help those affected by addictions. I feel very empathetic for those with addiction issues having had them my entire life, and I want to be known for showing people that there is a way to have fun and live clean and sober if that is your choice. For all the people promoting drug use I am here to remind people that meth isn't cute and neither are the people doing it.

 How long has Trenton Ducati the name and persona been a part of your life now?
 Trenton Ducati the name has been around for awhile. I had a crush on a boy named Trenton when I was 15,  Ducati is my favorite motorcycle company, and being that I am Italian I figured combining the two names would be a custom fit name. It's a very sexy Italian name .

 Was your decision to get into porn on a whim or had you thought about it for a while?
My decision to become part of the adult industry was a well thought out and planned decision. It took a little while to get my body and mind together on the same page. My battles with addiction delayed my grand entrance into not only the adult industry but all of life. My decision to make adult films is because I really wanted to and I absolutely love it. The people in it have been golden. I am having the greatest time of my life, and I am so thankful to be a part of this industry.

SOLD OUT's One Year Anniversary Party & Runway

We are marking the one year anniversary of the launch of SOLD OUT Clothing and the one year anniversary of our very first runway show on March 21, 2012, at Micky's in West Hollywood. Join us as we celebrate rock and metal in our very own way. Special guest/model appearances are guaranteed! Here is our official Micky's flyer for the event with covermodel Trenton Ducati.
We will be featuring new items created especially for the runway, and items that will be added to our website. We can guarantee that it will be an exciting show, that we will have some hot fitness models, gogo boys, and pornstars. We can also assure those out there who are not in Weho and/or are not able to attend the show, that we will have a lot of pics from the red carpet, from backstage, and from the show itself, as well as the show video.

As always throughout this past year we will continue to present a variety of Tom of Finland shirts as we remain close to the Tom of Finland Foundation and are thankful for their continued support of our development as a brand. We will also be incorporating more of our original slogan shirts, which show our humorous take on LGBT and leather/kink related themes and subjects, such as our popular "GOT WS" and "Forever Horny" shirts. Something new this show will feature several of our collaborations, such as our shirt projects with Jeff from Str8Cam and now, Jay Roberts and PLAYTIME in London, Dylan Rosser and his NAKED book, and DJ's eur-O-steve, Drew G & Chi Chi LaRue.

A special thank you to Jeff from SPUNK Lube for his great blog post  and to our very good friends at Jack Manly for their post regarding the show  and they promise to update further as the show gets closer!
