Take Me Alive celebrates the discerning men and women who live beyond simply wearing edgy clothing, but who truly bring raw attitude and authentic self-expression to everything they do in life.
Our collections evoke authentic raw energy, voice and attitude. Heavily influenced and inspired by art, culture, music, individuality and an unapologetic approach to life that’s not for everyone – and we appreciate that. Heavily influenced by the absolute edge, Take Me Alive is about truly living life to the death.
Founder & Creative Director
RAD BANE BRATICH
In this era of mounting fast fashion, Take Me Alive is committed to making ethical choices around the fabrics and materials we use along with how and where we craft our entire collection.
Rad is a lifelong punk / metalhead, artist and designer. His curiosity and enthusiasm for subcultures in art, music, photography and design inspire both his awareness and appreciation of life and death along with an unapologetic honesty he puts forward into everything design.
Every leather jacket is made-to-order from start to finish in New York by master craftspeople using heritage leathermaking techniques and precision hand-tooled metalwork.
Our cut & sew tee shop uses only the finest 100% organic California-grown Supima cotton for our custom silhouettes, featuring original graphics designed by our founder and screened exclusively with water-based color in Brooklyn.
“There’s been a lack of authentic, highly-designed fashion that actually speaks to the true subcultures which have directly influenced so much of the ‘edgy’ clothing brands have been putting out there for years.”
