From his background as a lead mechanic for the Los Angeles Metro, Steven Dang saw a need for quality workwear, and used his skills to build Railcar Fine Goods in 2010. Steven worked night shift at the metro and returning to Railcar during the day for 8 years until he was finally able to do Railcar full time.
At Railcar, we have one goal that continues to drive us every day: to bring you the absolute best products that we can make.
Every aspect of our operation in our El Monte, CA workshop revolves around using our small team of sewers and leather workers to build a product using the highest quality raw materials available that will stand the test of time. Everything is built from start to finish to ensure longevity. We know, because we wear them every day.
Unlike most other denim and clothing companies, every stage of our manufacturing takes place in-house at our workshop. From the beginning when company founder Steven Dang first started building garments, he found that using a large factory for production led to inconsistent quality and errors due to the numerous other brands being sewn simultaneously. He found that the only way to truly stand behind his products was to build every garment in-house from start to finish. Years later, we still believe this to hold true. We would rather take the hard road if it means that we can guarantee the quality and specifications on everything that leaves our shop. Every Railcar Fine Goods pant, jacket, shirt, and leather item was designed, cut, and assembled by our small team using manual and vintage machinery. This allows us to offer you the best service possible, since you are dealing directly with the people building your garment.
We pour everything we have into our goods and services, and we are proud to offer them to you. If you are in the area, please feel free to stop by. We would love to show you where your garments were built.
