Aranda's Chad Roper Wearing WATTO DMW's Signiture Buckle

Smokin' hot Chad Roper sent us this awesome photo taken by Monica Stricker. He's wearing WATTO Distinctive Metal Wear's (DMW) signiture buckle- the Winged Skull. (retails for $85 on

Chad was quoted as saying, "With the market flooded with cheap, gimmicky little nick-nacks, I've found it tough to find high quality apparel accessories that are unique in appearance and design. Thanks to the folks at Watto for providing for me a very nice addition to my wardrobe with their signature 'Winged Skull' buckle."

Aranda band members including Chad Roper, Dameon Aranda, Gabe Aranda, and Mike Walker originated their rock band in Oaklahoma City. Their first record Aranda, was released on April 22, 2008. They recently toured on the Buzzfest Tour with headliner Alice in Chains.
