A little teaser pic for now:




There was a lot of talk about the duck jacket that Mike was wearing at inspiration.  Here is that jacket.  I believe there is somewhat a matching pant that will be coming out as well.











I believe this jacket is about a year old.  i saw it last year at inspiration as well as the pants that go along with it.  There are a lot of construction details on this which make it pretty special.  The shaped waist band, which is a four part waist band is one of them.

The new acquisition.  I would like to say that Mike was very cool to work with on this.  Hombre scheduled a time for me to come down and talk fabrics with him.  When it came time to pick it up he opened up the shop on an off day to work with my schedule.  Overall, very pleased with the process and the final product, which is all I really care about, though.










Hodis just got these sew on black enamel buttons when I was down there.  They were just what I wanted.

One of my favorite construction aspects of these jeans is the buckle back.  I like how it curves down from the waistband.  Also, the black smith is a yokeless pant.




I chose a beefy leather patch, although, I do like the standard printed linen patch that is on the regular blacksmiths.






Typically the blacksmiths have a duck waistband lining.  Mike had just acquired this wabash duck fabric.  I had him put this new care label and the wabash duck in the waistband.  We also chose the expose the selvage along the waistband.  It is that little read line running along the bottom of the waistband.




I was a little hesitant on what size to go with, but i think I hit it right on (or spot on as we all like to say).  I might have been able to go up a size for a bit baggier fit, but I assume this denim will stretch as most loomstate denims will.



I forgot to take a pic of the one-piece fly.  That is probably the coolest thing about these pants.  there aren't too many companies making jeans with the one-piece fly these days.  It seems to me to be a stronger fly construction than the standard.

Nice. What weight is the denim? Looks a little heavier/slubbier than what Rising Sun typically uses. Also will this 'rnr' pattern now become a standard one?

The weight is about 14 to 15oz.  The denim is pretty slubby.  There isn't much different from the standard blacksmith other than the denim.  I think anybody could get this jean if they were willing to toss down the $$$.  In my mind, if you are gonna spring for $500 for a pair of jeans, you should just throw $600 at it and get exactly what you want and that is what I got.

Beautiful!  The black enameled buttons are fantastic.  I agree, if I would have known that 100 extra bucks would have gotten me a custom pair I would have sprung for it.  They are my favorite jeans.  My stock blacksmith have started to breakdown now after about 14 months and are buttery soft.  

Thanks for the pics of the new stuff.  Lots of beautiful new pieces, may have to call RS.
