Menswear, accessories & cocktails for those who care enough to look. Welcome to RYE & RIVET.
Nobody has to tell you that life is full of compromises. Between trying to buy American-made products (go, reinstitution of craft as industry!), trying to buy quality, trying not to go broke, and trying to avoid whatever this is, something’s bound to get tossed. You can’t have it all. This is the idea that the folks at Dyer & Jenkins had in the backs of their heads when they launched their Kickstarter campaign yesterday. You may take one look at their jeans and say “Whoa, yes, that’s all I need to know, take my money!”, but to be honest, the final product is only one-third of D&J’s merit. The fact is that the above jeans are honest-to-goodness, LA-made selvage denim clocking in at about $100 (to say nothing of the accompanying $50 knitwear and $12 tees)– so even if your first reaction was “Yeah, but I’m already eating plain noodles three times a day as penance for my last denim-buying binge”, you’ve got nothing to worry about. Oh, and did we mention it’s all made right here in the USA? We did? Sorry, excuse us. We’re a little excited. We just found out that you actually can have it all. Get in on the Kickstarter here.
