Lords of Gastown Acquires Chris Osman Designs

We are very excited to announce that Chris Osman Designs® has been acquired by Lords Of Gastown®.


All COD® branded products will soon be re-branded as Lords Of Gastown. Chris Osman, has accepted the position as Director of Operations, Lords Of Gastown®, USA. This will stream line our distribution as well as speed up our order fulfillment to our customers in the United States. We look forward to working with you as we expand our efforts and continue to innovate and supply you with industry leading products. Thank you from all of us at Lords Of Gastown® for your support over the years!


Chris is no stranger to acquisitions and decided to pull the trigger on this deal much earlier that anticipated.  “I owned Tactical Assault Gear for 10 years before selling it.  The biggest mistake I made was selling it to people and a company that literally have no clue as to what they are doing in the tactical space.  That’s not the case with Lords®.  We all share a tight bond, great synergy, business goals as well as a passion for what we do and the lifestyles we choose to live.” Chris also said “what I love most about this business is the life style.  Let’s face it.  We all ride a motorcycle year-round, travel thousands of miles a year using the products we make all while meeting some of the coolest people in the world.  The company motto “Freedom Is A Full Tank” spoke to me, I knew I wanted to be apart of the brand immediately.”


Soon will be replaced with  This will make it a lot easier for our US customers to place orders and receive them within days.

    The same lords of gastown that go by Lords of Asstown just a bit north?

    • Steak TarTar says:

      is that supposed to be an insult? because i would love to be the Lord of Asstown

      • Lasse says:

        In DTES you definitely don’t want any ass…

        Anyway, it’s a FB page that was created years ago by someone who had issues with LOG and what they were doing, it’s pretty hilarious in my opinion. The one where they patched over the Landlords of Yaletown is especially funny if you’ve ever lived in Vancouver.

      I believe there was some low level issues with the HA, given the Lords fo Gastown motorcycle gang imagery and claiming of turf. However now they host monthly events at a HA strip club so I’d assume they’ve made amends.

      I have a bunch of their t-shirts and hats.

    Lords of Gastown is not a motorcycle club. We are an apparel/lifestyle brand. Lords of Asstown is a compliment and then some. One of the things I love about the motorcycle industry vs. the tactical industry is that all the events and gatherings are not sausage parties. Great people at both, one is just 1000 times better.

    A question…… son ordered the Raven Magnetic Bag for me as a Father’s Day gift (Order #4140). That was about six weeks ago and I’m sure you’re busy with the acquisition and all it entails, but……..:-)

    My question is…..Can you say when you expect to start making deliveries of this item?

    Thanks for your time and I wish you well in your new endeavors…….Tony
