We are a small workshop in Moscow, Russia, producing signature buckles and belts for those who love motorcycle culture and value fine craftsmanship.

Rags & Gents was founded by Vasily Kostin and Max Tatarinov in 2016 – true motorcycle enthusiasts with many years of riding behind them for whom motorcycle culture is a source of never ending inspiration. The work celebrates designers, artists, engineers, bike builders, photographers, racers, travelers and just riders – all who create the great motorcycle culture legacy.
