Rising Sun Canvas Vests are tailor made in Los Angeles. By appointment only. They make mostly jeans and related vests, coats and other workwear.
As their philosophy statement says… “At Rising Sun we think of ourselves as actually working in the early 1900’s with a 21st century state of mind. Our team of tailors are meticulous when it comes to pattern making and sewing techniques. Drawing inspiration from master tailors of a bygone era, when good design, superior quality, and pride in your work actually mattered. Working largely on turn of the century machines, we approach every garment with this in mind. At Rising Sun we are craftsmen not manufacturers. Striving to create timeless, quality, lasting garments while utilizing all the best that modern technology and techniques have to offer. For us the workmanship is crucial. It’s our belief that the sum of all the small details make a world of difference. We believe in crafting garments that are certain to last just like in the old days when clothes were tools that helped people provide a living and build a nation. When Made in America stood for something. When it meant your friends and neighbors had good jobs, big dreams, and they could provide a good American life for themselves and their families. When made in America wasn’t just a label on a garment. It is this thinking, philosophy, and conviction that sets Rising Sun apart.…”
