RISING SUN denim store in Pasadena (LA) - Page 18

post #256 of 283
Went to Rising Sun today. The interior is f'ing awesome and chain hemming is on site and $15, which is reasonable in my opinion. Jeans themselves are not really my cup of tea. But anyway, as I drove by on Fair View I noticed the guy just lounging there looking bored out of his mind, on the walk back he was still idling. Kind of feel for the guy, poor choice of location tbh, Pasadena's more of a hotspot for TR than for Americana.

I told him he should sign up for our forums. Don't know if he did yet.

He needs to connect more with a lot of the online sellers, seems kind of slow just relying on streetshoppers.

Yup. Montrose still feels more old-school and much more toned down. Plus, parking isn't a complete whore.

It's Fair Oaks, noob. I haven't been in that store nor have heard of anyone else going there and not finding him or his wife looking totally bored. Their choice of location is a complete mystery as is their lack of online presence (a quick google would find forums like SF and sufu when searching for terms like "selvage" or "cone mills") and customer base. Get Smart and I have mentioned this ad nauseum, though.

Hahah Fairview is a street a few blocks from my house that's essentially a strip of apartments in a city of inflated 2 story McMansions.

Yeah I checked it out the other day too. Apparently most of the jeans they make are true to the period jeans. They make em exactly how they did in the late 19th century. Pretty cool, but the guy wasn't super polite though.

I think its a bit over done and pretentious.

May have been the way you came across.

He has a mildly threatening manner but the more I talked to him the more I realized that was just how he was. He was pretty cool and even showed me the back where they had their sewing machines.

Since this thread is the pseudo Pasadena thread, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good, affordable tailor in the area. Thanks!

Ghost town, albeit a very nice one.

wow really? I remember there being tons of dining options. Hodad's may have been one of the best burgers I've ever had, not to mention bbq at Phil's. i guss if you mean outside of dining, there's really nothing else to do but beaches. I'm going parasailing / kayaking hope that'll be fun

Nah, SD is fine. Gaslamp can be kinda douchey at times but there are a few decent spots. I'm a fan of PetCo, too. I guess I'm kind of burned out after the college scene down there, especially in PB. Now when I go down it's either to hit the driving range, rent a wave runner at mission bay, or drink margaritas all day. For food it just depends on what you're looking for. It's too bad Old Town is pretty much shit these days. For something a bit "different" I like El Prado at Balboa. Decent food. Also Little Italy has a couple of good cheap spots.

TOTALLY worth it. Get a friend and split the difference.

thanks for the sugestion, it's def on the list. parasailing is about $140 for two and going to be fkn great. kayaking at the sea caves is pretty cheap, i think i can still squeeze this in if I skip out on the whole fine dining thing.

perhaps I should cancel ms. sense's massage and do this instead. (and buy massage oil for the hotel and do it myself)
