    No, I actually think they look good. They'll stretch a little with wear and if you hot soaked them you've gotten most of the shrinkage out already.

    Those jeans shrink a full size when soaked/washed, so if they're tight now you'll definitely need a size up before washing or soaking them.

    I'd say after a brand has been around for a while they start looking into different types of products to produce. Flat Head's underwear wasn't special, it was just Flat Head branded and well made. While Stevenson has made underwear inspired by vintage underwear construction and produced a sturdy but soft loopwheeled fabric for it, it's nice and unique.

    Stevenson Winter Collection of Sweaters, Loopwheeled Boxer Briefs, Socks, & Jeans Stevenson just hit us with their winter collection of hoodies, sweaters, loopwheeled boxer briefs, socks, and jeans. One of the standout items is their gray pull-over hoodie with a heavy-duty contrast flat-lock stitch on the hand pocket across the front. Great details on this one and it's a unique take on the classic pull-over hoodie. Stevenson has also done a new style of sock, available in three colors. These feel great, have the right amount of cushion, and have Stevenson Overall branding stitched into the sock. In the spring when we held the Stevenson Pop-Up Shop at SENY we brought in their entire collection, we had an item which sold out quickly and we received so many requests for it that we had Stevenson do another run. That item was their loopwheeled Tanguis cotton boxer briefs; these are available in both natural and olive. Along with these items we've received fresh runs of all their jean models, an updated 727 black jean which is now made of a black selvedge denim, and short sleeve henley t-shirts with that wild ass ribbing which they have custom made. All these items are available now at all Self Edge stores and our online store. Shop Stevenson Online

    3sixteen's Hunting Jacket and T-Shirt & Jean Restocks Just in time for the winter season we've received a great "hunting" jacket from 3sixteen. We feel this is one the best outerwear pieces they've ever done. It's functional, very well made, and fits a variety of outfit styles. We have a difficult time keeping 3sixteen's t-shirts in stock at our stores, it seems that we sell them faster than they can make them. We're just received a full restock of their t-shirts (in plain, pocket, henley, and garment dyed versions) along with restocks in all of their jean models for men and women including the recent 40BSP Caustic Wave denim jean.

    If you like the 50's tee you have to try the 2-thread tees we carry. They're double face woven so the t-shirt has a warp and a weft like a pair of jeans, there's a thin amount of space between the two layers which gives the t-shirt an airy quality that's quite unique.

    Introducing Merz b. Schwanen - Loopwheeled basics for your body. Over the past few years we've seen in increase in clients who have come to us for basics such as t-shirts, henleys, and crewneck sweaters. We've increased our selection massively over the past year and have been doing our best to bring you the best in basics. We want a t-shirt that is not only well made but has details which impress even the most seasoned garment connoisseur. We're proud to announce that we'll be carrying Merz b. Schwanen's line-up of t-shirts, henleys, and sweaters at all of our stores. This collection is fully loopwheeled on vintage loop wheeling machines in Germany, some of the only ones still operating outside of Japan. This collection starts off with Organic cotton from mainland Greece which is then spun and dyed in-house in Germany. Everything is custom made for these garments, from the constructional thread to the ribbing to the inner yoke reinforcements. We believe this line will impress even those which are accustomed to buying Japanese made basics, which is not something we've said often about garments made outside of Japan. The Merz b. Schwanen line is available now at all Self Edge stores including our online store. Shop Merz b. Schwanen

    We just dropped prices on everything within the last 48 hours on most items. Not sure when the next price drop is, it all depends on how fast everything else moves through the sale.

    Flat Head no longer allows all of their accounts to make custom leather accessories, only their "premier" accounts can do it now. Mid-Length wallets in my opinion look really cool but are a complete pain to use, especially as an every day wallet. 3005 is being remade and being restocked at stores January 15th.
  12. The Flat Head

    You guys are making me dig deep in some records.. You're right, we did another run of them just for Self Edge, 53 shirts made with whatever fabric they had left in the spring of 2013. You may have bought yours in 2013, if you did get it in 2014 it means it was one of the last ones we had left.
  13. The Flat Head

    Just went back to see when it was actually released.. it was SIX years ago, not 8. They never remade the shirt, it was one run made in 2011 in the spring, then in the fall they did it in a long sleeve version.
  14. The Flat Head

    Here's a story... I own that shirt, it's about 6 years old. I have worn it on every single trip I've taken, regardless if it was a road trip or a flight, in the past 8 years. I'm talking many thousands of miles, countless countries, etc.. I wear it on my travel day going to my destination and also on the way back (but not while I'm at my destination). It's turned into a bit of a ritual for me. The shirt breathes really well, has aged really nicely, and still fits great. My only concern is that within the next year the lower back part of the shirt may completely wear through from rubbing on my backpack. I knew I was going to do this when I got the shirt so I sized up one to a 42 knowing it was going to washed and dried over 100 times. I'm honestly amazed how well the shirt has held up, only the blue paint on the buttons has started to chip off in some places. I'm writing this as I wear the shirt traveling from Mexico to SELA for a day, then to Japan to see the new Flat Head collection for 2018. One of the topics we're discussing is remaking this fabric.

    Whitesville Thermal Lined Hoodies & Sugar Cane Type II Jackets and Wabash Workshirts Thus far Whitesville has mostly been a basics brand producing a variety of t-shirts. They've now branched out a bit and have done a great winter hoodie that's made of a custom heavy fleece that's been fully thermal lined for ultimate comfort and warmth. One of the most popular denim jackets we've carried over the past few years has been a modified version of Sugar Cane's Type II denim jacket. Normally this jacket is only available in a one-wash and traditionally short version. We've had a special run made for us unwashed and with the length increased by a bit so that you can wear the jacket with untucked shirts underneath. Along with the hoodie and denim jacket we have a new wabash workshirt from Sugar Cane's premium "Fiction & Romance" collection. All of these items are available now at all Self Edge stores.
