Rank & Sugar is a vintage, handcrafted Army apparel line that honors soldiers, empowers women, and spreads peace. Each garment is hand selected for its perfect patina, then reinvented one by one to become the hero piece in a woman’s closet. These are quality items that have stood the test of time, protected soldiers through battle, and then lovingly brought back to life to serve again. No detail is overlooked, from hand stamped dog tags made one at a time by a Vietnam Veteran to hand embroidered messages of peace & love. Rank & Sugar brings heirloom quality craftsmanship to sustainable fashion. In a world of fast fashion, we stand out as a label made from passion, craft and intention. We will always hold these values and it is our hope that comes through in what our hands have created. Rank & Sugar blends seamlessly with modern luxury labels and classic lines, as well.
