Straight up resurrected from the dead
I just got back from Rising Sun, after spotting it on Fair Oaks on the way to grab lunch in Pasadena. From what I saw, they make excellent denim. The lady that helped me out really knew her stuff. She even gave me a mini-tour - as mentioned, they make everything on site. She showed me some of the products that are dropping in the fall, including a really great looking pair of canvas work pants in a darker brown.
They use organic cone denim and it is being made literally mere steps away from you...
That being said, the price point is a bit of a turn-off...the regular jeans go for $350 and a pair of single thread cinchbacks went for $500. She informed me that the workpants would be around $250.
The only place in the States to pick them up at is at the store, as their only other retailers exist in Japan and Germany. So I suggest you check them out if you get a chance!www.risingsunjeans.com
