Jeansmaker Mike Hodis and his team at Rising Sun & Co. have been pushing the envelope with historically inspired designs and innovative details for going on ten years now. For their Spring/Summer ’14 collection they’re proud to introduce a new raw denim fit, The Settler (above right), and a host of other garments evocative of the American 1930s and 40s. Check out some exclusive photos from their lookbook below.
Above you’ll see their Bronco Western Shirt in salt and pepper with mother of pearl diamond snaps and sawtooth pockets along with the backend of the Settler, their most elaborate buckleback to date.
They’ve also introduced a new jacket, The Handler, and it’s offered in a deadstock indigo plaid American canvas. The jeans are their perennial favorite slim cut Straight Razor in raw indigo.
Collabs this season include this Moto Racing Sweater they produced with Portland’s century old knitwear house Dehen.
And finally, they’ve introduced a new work shirt The Messenger, with the same spade-shaped pockets you’d find on their Spade denim but in a Japanese chambray. On the right, you’ll find their Ranch Hand jacket in a brown duck canvas and a new WW2 military spec wool watchmen beanie.
Hats off to Rising Sun, we’re looking forward to these drops coming up in the next few weeks.
