First, we have 7 US Army Vietnam-Era Vintage Fish Tail Parkas, $45/each, a good selection of Vintage Workshirts, twill as well as chambray, $15/each, and an even larger selection of Denim & Twill Fabrics 5-10yrds bundle from $5/ bundle. Lastly, a variety of Cones of Thread in various sizes and colors, 50cent/cone… and more to come in the next few days.
A few people have asked if the sample sale is open by appointment only, but this is not the case. Our doors are open to one and all. This is the perfect time to get some of the gift buying out of the way before the holidays.
See you on Saturday!
Here at Rising Sun we crave the authentic things in life. This is why we often look to workwear of the past for inspiration. There is one iconic worker who had to take lots of abuse and still look rugged and handsome at the end of the day. The Ranch Hand.
Once again, Rising Sun’s Ranch Hand Jacket brings the this rugged charm back to life.
Since we know many of you have been waiting, we are happy to announce them finished just in time for the cold winter weather. This two pocket, pleated jacket, made from our signature brown duck is a timeless piece. We kept the details the same, using tobacco colored contrast duck on the inside of the waist band and the cuffs, and a steel buckle made from bending steel wiring as a back detail.
As always, we here at rising sun want you to be the dapper gentleman that you dream of being. Well we have a piece here that will stoke the fires of your heart. This piece is so stunning you’ll charm passers-by without saying a single word.
This piece is the Gent Waistcoat. It is crafted from the finest of wabash printed dot stripe selvage canvases. The gent features a flatbusted center back seam with inside selvage detail. The inner pocket is selvage edged with a custom Rising Sun patch. Its deep hunting pockets can subtly hold anything from your safely concealed passport to fresh quail. The chest pocket has been enlarged to perfectly fit your smart phone. This may be a vintage inspired piece but we consider your technological needs. With its plethora of features and hearty duck canvas this rusty beauty will be the pride of your wardrobe.
Recently the show Twin Peaks turned 20 years old and to celebrate an art exhibit was held. We at Rising Sun were asked to produce some memorabilia from the fictional town of Twin Peaks for this event. Specifically we created work aprons and shirts from the shows “Packard Sawmill”. This was a fun opportunity for us as we have a fondness for vintage work aprons. There are a few aprons and shirts still available for sale here (bottom of the page).
Additionally we made some work aprons for our shop. We hope to have more available soon for purchasing.
This years Inspiration show is taking place on board The Queen Mary down in Long Beach and we are happy to be apart of the line up once again. We will be sharing a booth with our Friend Julian of Julian Boots and should have a pretty cool set up. This is a fun opportunity to meet some of our fans and mingle with other members of the vintage americana community. I hope to see you there.
