Open Range: Rising Sun's Ranch Hand Jacket
When working the ranch from dawn till dusk, it’s important that a cowboy dons the right duds. And aside from blue jeans and broken-in boots, a good jacket is an essential. Which is exactly what inspired the Ranch Hand jacket, made by Rising Sun as a tribute to the workingmen of the West ($275).
In a classic jean-jacket style inspired by those of the early 20th century, the Ranch Hand is handmade from duck canvas, a rare fabric choice in the fashion industry as duck is traditionally used for sails and tents. So not only can the jacket withstand the roughest wear, it’s also water and wind resistant — a perfect piece for working outdoors, no matter the weather conditions. www.benchandloom.com
