Liberty Fairs' Concept 8366 1/2 Space is in a denim state of mind. Next up is Rising Sun & Co. Jeans, which is transforming the pop-up shop into a mini version of its cool old-school Eagle Rock workshop—complete with vintage sewing machines, wooden crates and more nifty nineteenth-century Americana accents.
In addition to stocking their selvage men's denim in the rotating retail space, the LA-based label is also serving up shirting, outerwear and accessories, all made right here in the U.S. And get this: every day, an expert tailorwill be in the house crafting jeans using the brand's signature old-fashioned techniques (sans the turn-of-the-century sweatshop conditions, of course).
Diggin' their denim? Rising Sun's throwing a launch party this Friday, November 1st at their temporary home, and you're invited. Head to space from 6pm to 9pm to check out the brand's merch, enjoy live music and gulp down some ice cold beers.
