  1. That's funny because i think the exact opposite. I think chunky or large boots look ridiculous with small leg openings or tapered jeans but look great with a jean with zero taper or a traditional straight leg.

  3. 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 www.selfedge.com love, kiya

    Strike Gold Loopwheeled Sweaters, Hoodies, & T-Shirts Strike Gold's loopwheeled basics are back! These are the ultimate loopwheeled t-shirts, no surprise that they come from Strike Gold, a brand highly dedicated to pushing the boundaries of both selvedge denim and loopwheeled basics. This heavy 100% cotton fabric is made on vintage loopwheeling machines in Japan. Not many of these machines still exist in the world as they're difficult to maintain and run at a very slow pace. This jersey is produced and pulled down by gravity to create a zero tension knit, creating that trademark horizontal pattern you seen in a well worn in loopwheeled t-shirt or sweater. Available now in black, white, and a new navy color. We also have heavy loopwheeled crewneck sweaters and hoodies along with heavy single-grain cowhide belts in two colors. Shop Strike Gold Online

They’ve taken the iconic Type II jacket style and done it up in a super supple 1.3mm tannin-dyed Japanese deerskin. These are finished with iron buttons and the jacket is fully rayon lined. Flat Head's iconic THC t-shirt is back. These are the heaviest weight t-shirts Flat Head produces and they've been making these for over twenty years. These tees are heavy yet soft, have a Never-Sag collar, come with contrast collar and hem stitching, and have no side seams due to the tubular knit fabric. We also have 12oz denim workshirts and crazy nice Heavy Duty socks in two colors. Shop Flat Head Online

    The Kei Shigenaga Fall Collection The Kei Shigenaga fall collection is here. First up we have the Igen bracelet made of twisted links, handmade one by one, a large curved plate, and two textured dog tags. The contrast between the perfectly polished plate and the oxidized/rough areas of the bracelet are the key elements here making this bracelet so unique. We also have the Shin pendant and necklace; inspired by a spine, as Shin means "core" in Japanese. The pendant has four black diamonds, and the custom chain comes with a solid 18k gold tag. In addition to the Igen and Shin we have three new rings and another pendant and necklace set. Shop Kei Shigenaga Online

    Pure Blue Japan Fall Collection of Jeans Pure Blue Japan’s IDBK overdyed warp jean is here. This is an 18oz denim with an indigo weft and a warp made of a yarn which is pure indigo dyed then overdyed black before being woven into denim. You’re going to get a “three way” fading process with these as the warp and weft age in a different manner over time. We also now have their flagship 14oz denim available in their 013 slim and 019 straight tapered fits at all stores. Shop Pure Blue Japan Online

    The Iron Heart 20th Anniversary Ultra-Heavy Flannel & Deerskin Shirts The Iron Heart flannel that started it all is back as part of Iron Heart’s 20th Anniversary collection. Back when Iron Heart originally released this flannel we were the only brick and mortar store outside Japan selling the brand. We’ll never forget getting this shirt in at our first store in San Francisco around 2006. We’d never seen a flannel like it. It was soft, heavy (10oz back then), and the pattern had a nice depth to it that opened up over time with wear. We probably bought 20 of them for the shop, with half of those going to staff and friends of the shop; they’re still to this day one of the most coveted things we’ve ever sold. If you weren’t one of those lucky 20 back in 2006 you now have a chance to own one. Same colors, same pattern, now made of 12oz flannel, but slightly pale-gray overdyed to bring the final weight to 14oz, the heaviest flannel Iron Heart has ever produced. We also have a new run of Ezo deerskin shirts and 10oz overdyed denim western shirts. Shop Iron Heart Online

    Studio D'Artisan Suvin Gold Loopwheeled T-Shirts & Dralon Socks Suvin Gold is one of, if not the most, expensive cotton varieties in the world. Studio D’Artisan have done a new run of their loopwheeled heavyweight t-shirts in 100% Suvin Gold cotton, available now in three colors. These tees feel quite unique as most brands wouldn’t make a garment this heavy out of a fiber this fine. Along with these Suvin Gold t-shirts we also have a new run of their Dralon fiber socks available in three colors. Shop Studio D'Artisan Online

    The Rick Owens STROBE Fall/Winter Collection We’ve just received the Rick Owens STROBE edition of the Made in Japan Detroit jean. We love the way these turned out and are excited to offer this model in what we think is the most versatile jean silhouette Rick Owens produces. These are made of a newly developed 13.75oz Japanese selvedge denim with an indigo warp and black weft. This denim truly comes alive after it’s been soaked or softened by a bit of wear; we can’t wait to see some pairs of these super worn in over time. Made of the same 13.75oz denim we also have new cargo Pods shorts and a new shirt jacket we're really in love with over here. Three new Ramones sneakers have also landed. We have high-tops in a newly developed 22oz natural denim, low-tops in a black 22oz denim, and high-tops in heavy black corduroy. Shop Rick Owens Online

    Samurai ZERO FABRIC T-Shirts & 15oz Baker Pants Samurai’s Baker Pants are finally back in stock; we had two small runs of these earlier this year and they disappeared quickly. We’ve had Samurai make us a new batch and they now come with a very fancy sparkly selvedge ID. These “baker” pants are made of a unique 15oz fabric developed by Samurai that has a nice deep olive color and has some great textural qualities we've not seen before in any fabric before. Samurai’s ZERO FABRIC t-shirts are now available in natural or kuromame (black soybean dyed) in both plain and pocket versions! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Samurai has done a crazy but beautiful thing.. In 2010 they bought a small farm outside Osaka, Japan, with the hopes they would be able to grow their own cotton with the intention of one day being able to make garments made of their own cotton, as in a truly vertically made garment. After twelve years they've been able to grow enough cotton to make t-shirts and of course they're as beautiful as the story behind them. The cotton is minimally processed in very small batches without the use of any harsh cleaning or whitening agents, also all fractured cotton seeds and all staple lengths are left in the cotton during the carding and spinning process for a truly unique fabric. We can really say we’ve never felt or seen a cotton jersey like this from any company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The natural ones are made of a completely untreated cotton and the “kuromame” have been given a long bath in a locally grown kuromame (black soybean) “soup” to achieve the dark charcoal color.

    Pure Blue Japan Pop-Up Beige-Core Jeans & Indigo Yarn-Dyed Tees Pure Blue Japan’s PBE-019 is here. This model has a very interesting process used for the warp yarns. They've used a beige yarn as the base of the warp then dyed the yarn with pure indigo until it's a deep indigo blue color. This looks beautiful when raw and sure to age in a very interesting manner once worn in. These are available now in PBJ’s straight tapered fit along with a new run of their indigo yarn-dyed t-shirts.
