It's on Fair Oaks about half block south of Green St. Am curious to see what this place is.
To answer the above quoters ?, That would be" Rising Sun Denim & Tailor Co."
located @ Dayton & Fair Oaks ave,
Mike Hodis formerly head demin master @ "Lucky Brand Jeans" & his lovely wife Jennifer decided to strike out & do a lil shop of their own.
This store will target the upsale buyer seeking a premium form fitting,hand tailored jeans with many choices of washes as well as input in the mfg'g process. For reference Mike has been employed in the denim industry for 15 yrs and works with many of name brand mfg's on a consulting level regarding weave patterns etc,
Rest assured that all will be impressed when one 1st steps foot into "Rising Sun" from the leather covered floor to the antique store fixtures to the window dressings. One will not be dissapointed.
Mike has collaborated with me personally on my companies (Cyclone Racing Equip) line of cotton wear and we have had very nice results.
The retail store is set to open late Nov early Dec 06, so keep an eye open & when taking a stroll past, If Mike is in there, stop in & introduce yourself,
It will be well worth the time. As Mike would say, This stuff is gonna be off the hook!
