So...
where do i start?
We here at Self Edge have been working 24/7 to bring denim heads what they've been wanting; the vision of what i wanted in terms of selection from a denim store is coming to life. We are still on track to open our doors Wednesday, November 1 at noon.

here's some updates on stock..
-Imperial Denim
-Sugarcanes
-Iron Heart
-Flat head
-Triple Works
-Buzz Rickson
-Mister Freedom
-RJB
-Nudies
-Strike Gold
-3sixteen
-Dry Bones
-Sling & Stone (for women only)


To those who've emailed me in the past month or so with positive words, thank you...
To those that are inquiring about exactly which cuts we're getting in from a certain designer, it's too much for us to answer those questions at the moment because our heads are filled with hundreds of cuts and washes and styles... We chose what we liked from every designer and we hope that once you see what we have in stock you'll agree. There are a few things we've got that i've never seen any other place, come in and check em out. The online store will be opening mid/late-november with most of our denim stock being available online.

The opening party will take place at 6pm on November 18th at Self Edge with J-Zone (nyc, old maid billionaires) playing his trademark style of ignant hiphop.

things to look forward to..
-Superfuture Party, tentative date is January 6, bring your nametag
-Self Edge x Iron Heart Selvedge Indigo Slim Anti-Fit Jeans
-Death from Exhaustion

I'm super excited to visit during my winter break from school in NY. I'll be at the Jan 6th party, even though I'm a superfuture newbie.

Theres like 3 (ithink) stores in SF alone that cary APC. No real need to carry the same brands as the other shops.

Trying to bring "harder to get" denim to SF, rather than just being like every other denim boutique in SF.

My look on it anyways.

minya.. the entire reason the Superfuture party is Jan 6 was so that you could make it. so now you MUST come. :)

More info on the Iron Heart x Self Edge collab shortly..
probably in about 5 days or so we'll be able to release specs and prices.
we're going all out for these, so stay tuned.

My girlfriend is now in SF and I've convinced her to pick up a pair of raws. What brand do you carry women's line?

Posted 29 October 2006 - 05:49 PM

for women we've got:

-Imperial Denim (none, they don't make dedicated women's cuts..)
-Sugarcanes (1, the bootcut model that's very tight in the thighs)
-Iron Heart (their one women's cut which is a straightish boot cut)
-Nudies (it's all unisex for the most part, but for women we've got slim kim and super slim kim)
-Samurai (we've got the Geisha, which some say is for women, some say it's just called that, regardless, we've got it in women's sizes)
-Iron Army (two cuts, two washes of each cut, womens' only)
-Sling & Stone (comes in november 15, women's only, two cuts, two raw, two washes)

hope that clarifies what we do and don't have for women...
i did my best to try and carry as much selvedge/raw for women as i could.

thanks!
it's been a trip so far opening Self Edge..
some of these designers' products were harder to get a hold of than i had anticipated. but it's all worked out and we have all 7 or 8 of the denim brands that i wanted to have before i started working on SE...
