Rufskin has just released an outstanding limited edition collection you really need to see. The Californian designers have teamed up with the Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles to create an exclusive collection of athletic apparel and underwear which the brand itself describes it is a seamless bridging of art and fashion. This collection is available from Rufskin, select retailers around the world and exclusively in the UK at BangX.
The ever innovative designers at Rufskin cite the artist Tom of Finland (Tuko Laaksonen) not only as an inspiration for this collection, but as an inspiration for their whole brand. The art has told the test of time, and its revival in the form of fashion is long overdue. This new collection is seriously cool, edgy, and sexy!
The Tom of Finland by Rufskin collection takes inspiration from the artist in a number of ways. Some pieces use actual artwork for a shocking erotic effect, some take cues from the clothing styles in the art, and others are inspired by the ethos of underground, clandestine sex.

Tom of Finland’s illustrations are unmistakeable. Every image is a hyper-sexualised fantasy of an unrestricted world where a gay man is free to do whatever he pleases, with whomever he desires. Escapism for a young gay artist in World War II era Finland that would go on to gain a cult following.
The artist’s men are instantly recognisable for their exaggerated proportions, unbelievable muscles, tiny waists, and enormous bulges. Normally they’re dressed in uniforms – soldiers, sailors, workmen, police, bikers – all fetishised for the brawny, working men who would wear them.
Using Rufskin’s classic fits, the range is designed to accentuate and suggest. Take a small taste below and make sure you see the whole collection at www.bangx.co. Certainly one of the best collections we’ve seen this year.
