Welcome to the home of BLUF, the Breeches and Leather Uniform Fan Club. BLUF is a club for men who enjoy wearing breeches and leather uniforms. Founded in 1997, there are now over 3,400 members worldwide, and many of them meet in person at BLUF events.
On the BLUF menu, you can find out more about the club. The Community menu has our calendar of events and blog, while on the Info menu you can find many useful resources, including other clubs, vendors and venues around the world.
BLUF is one of the world's biggest communities for men into leather uniforms, with members in dozens of countries and around 100 events every year. Joining BLUF gives you access to our whole site, where you can meet other guys seriously into leather, create a profile, and become part of our community. We maintain a strict dresscode, which you can read about here.
Joining BLUF is free and open to men who meet our dresscode requirements. The site is run by volunteers, and owned by BLUF Ltd, a not-for-profit company based in the UK.
We can now announce that the next BLUF social will be held during the Manchester Leather Weekend (MLW2018) on 6th October from 20:00-23:00 upstairs at the Thompson Arms.
The full schedule will be announced very soon by MLM and tickets will also be on sale soon. We'll update you here as soon as the announcement is made.
Be great to see new and old BLUF friends out in their BLUF finest gear. Come along and you’ll reserve a warm welcome, have a good chat and make new friends. Have a cigar or two on the outside smoking area.

There are just three months now until London's Pride Parade, and once again BLUF will be marching with London Leathermen. Everyone's welcome to join us, but you need to register as soon as you can. We'll have more details closer to the time, but for now, make sure you save the date!
Last week, we reported that the holder of the BLUF Berlin trademark had applied for an injunction to prevent one of our volunteers in Berlin from organising events using the BLUF name. Rather than immediately grant the injunction, the court gave each side a week to respond to the submissions made.
On 1st August, which was the deadline for filing responses, we were notified that the trademark holder had withdrawn their request for the injunction. While we welcome this step, which ensures that our planned events in Berlin will go ahead unhindered, we are concerned that this means there has been no official determination of facts.
So, this is not the end. It is merely the end of the beginning. As we made clear originally, we believe that the BLUF Berlin trademark was registered in bad faith, and we are determined to stand by our volunteers in the face of any further legal threats.
Consequently, we have instructed our lawyer to continue working to have the trademark cancelled. We will continue to take such additional steps as are necessary to protect BLUF, and the rights of our volunteers to organise events using the club's…
BLUF's website isn't just for our members. You'll find plenty of information available to non-members too, including our listings of leather and fetish vendors, leather venues, and local leather clubs, around the world.
The BLUF events calendar features events worldwide, organised by a wide range of clubs and other groups, and as well as BLUF topics, our blog often includes posts of general interest to the leather community.
Members of BLUF also have access to our online magazine, which includes reports from BLUF events, exclusive photo galleries, and even short stories written by other members. The member forum provides places to share tips or ask for help on a range of topics, incuding For Sale and Wanted sections, travel advice and more.
On your BLUF profile, you can even let people know if you have a guest room, or can show them round your city, and our sophisticated search tools can help you find a bed in a city, or even someone who's into the same things as you, with a playroom, who rides a bike and speaks German.
We're committed to keeping BLUF membership free, with all members getting all the functions of the site. BLUF is funded by donations and sales of BLUF merchandise. Members who donate to BLUF qualify for the BLUF card, which gives discounts at a range of vendors, including Boxer, Clone Zone, Fetish Freak, Mister B and Regulation.
