What does Kim Kardashian West have in common with Japanese hardcore punk band Disclose? But of course, she’s the proud owner of a studded black-leather jacket donning the band’s logo.

If you’re wondering the connection, the band’s politically conscious, anti-war catalog of music — featuring tracks such as “Once the War Started”, “The Bombardment”, and “The Aspects of War” — is the perfect soundtrack for a summer cruise through Malibu in Kanye’s Maybach. (And you thought I was going to make a politically incorrect joke about Kim Kardashian West being worse than a nuclear bomb. Too easy.)

As Disclose ceased existence following the death of frontman Kawakami in 2007, Kim decided to honor the band’s legacy with the aforementioned leather jacket. Like any good punk rocker, she picked it up from luxury clothing brand Enfants Riches Déprimés for the totally reasonable price of $11,000.
