    100% agree, I don't think I've ever seen a flannel with this attention to detail in the construction combined with a flannel fabric this good.

    Seuvas' Spring Collection of Beautiful Shirts Seuvas is back with a solid spring collection of four shirts, all fabrics made in-house and all cutting and sewing also done by the same crew. We have two new flannel shirts, a garment dyed medium weight canvas workshirt, and a lightweight natural canvas shirt. Their new White Lotus and CeeLo Green flannels are made of an original selvedge flannel complete with double-needle construction, gusseted side seams, and their signature single Amakusa pottery stone button as the only exterior branding. The canvas shirt is a special edition version of the 79A workshirt which has been garment dyed in a charcoal bath and the Tassa shirt is made of their lightest weight canvas in a natural undyed color. It’s no surprise that Seuvas is capable of producing such nice shirts considering all textiles and even the sewing is done in-house in their own factory in Okayama, Japan. You can find this new collection at all stores now. Shop Seuvas Online

  6. Real Japan Blues Jeans - The 106BSP & 105BSP Hailing from Nagano, Japan.. Real Japan Blues is known for their psychotic ways of producing even the simplest of garments. They take everything from western shirts to five pocket jeans and create them in an entirely new way using fabrics that impress even the most seasoned garment junkie. Two new models from RJB are being released this weekend in limited numbers, at this point RJB is not sure as to whether or not these will be reproduced once this run is gone. The 106BSP is a slim fit jean with a straight leg and the 105BSP has a mid-rise and a straight leg. We're quite into the cuts because we feel there is a gap in the Japanese denim market for jeans that aren't exactly reproductions but have a heavy nod to the Rockabilly days of the late 1950's, jeans that make you look like you're Marlon Brando or James Dean but aren't really the cuts they were wearing fifty years ago. A combination of the denim, leg silhouettes, tags, and knife pocket.. We see a badass from the 50's that wreaks havoc on civilians with his motorcycle gang, and we love it. The denim on these is a new denim which has impressed us here to say the least. It's similar to Flat Head's 3XXX denim in terms of how hairy it becomes after the first soak but has a deeper indigo color straight off. The dye method yields an extremely high contrast fade which we'd only seen this intense before on Flat Head's denim, yet it's quite different considering it's pure indigo and the cotton is from Zimbabwe. Spec list for both the 106BSP and 105BSP: 13.75oz Rope Dyed Japanese Selvedge Unsanforized Denim Zimbabwe Cotton Fiber Denim Double Length Knife Pocket (Coin Pocket) Hidden Rivets Black Dyed Cowhide Leather Tag Red RJB Embroidered Logo Copper RJB Rivets Modeled by Cesar Ramos of Mission Hill Saloon and shot by Sidney Lo. Both the 105BSP & the 106BSP will be released at Self Edge on December 20th at Noon and at the same time via our online store. 100 pairs of each model were produced by RJB. Check the online store for more hi-res photos, specs, and pricing: http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=76&zenid=a8c7a81fd857801cfba03daa13cf90de Real Japan Blues 106BSP Real Japan Blues 105BSP Photos of RJB's Denim from a forthcoming Lightning Magazine Issue (worn for 10 months, washed twice):

    Samurai x Old Blue Limited Edition 21oz Denim Jeans We’ve got a special release this week from two highly denim-dedicated labels. Japan’s Samurai have come together with Indonesia’s Old Blue to create one heavily detailed pair of jeans. These jeans are made of Samurai’s 21oz Cho-Kiwami indigo denim combined with accents using Old Blue’s original 21oz denim. They’ve filled these jeans with too many interesting details to list here, though most are found on the inside of the jean, you can find a full list of specs on our product page. These come in Samurai’s legendary 710 cut, a fit which reminds us of the early days of Superfuture’s Superdenim, as it was one of the most popular cuts back then. These are available now at all stores in limited numbers. Shop Samurai Online

    The Flat Head Delraiser Horsehide Jacket & Shell Cordovan Small Wallets The Flat Head Delraiser jacket is back! We think this is one of the best versions of this jacket available from any brand. The Shinki semi-aniline finished horsehide, the custom zippers and snaps, the original Flat Head liner, and the toned down look due to the removal of the epaulets and belt make this one amazing jacket. These are only produced once a year due to the extremely limited supply of this particular leather from Shinki. Also, they’re now available up to size 46. Flat Head’s Shinki Tannery shell cordovan small wallets are back in three styles and two colors. All wallets are hand-cut, hand-sewn, pigskin lined, and made in-house in Flat Head’s own leather craft workshop in Nagano, Japan. Shop Flat Head Online

    Kei Shigenaga Rei Ring & Ryu Necklace We have two new pieces of jewelry from Kei Shigenaga this week, the Rei ring and the Ryu necklace and pendant. The Ryu necklace was inspired by two Japanese carps swimming together. The ancient Japanese tale says a carp swims upstream to become a dragon, which is known as "ryu" in Japanese, hence the name of the necklace. Melted 18k gold is poured into the two scars on the carps' heads, which tells the story of the carp trying its best to chase its dream to become a dragon. The design is a homage to traditional Japanese Kintsugi which is an artistic method to repair broken pottery with gold, to give the crack a new life. The chain is finished with a branded solid 18k yellow gold "tag". We also have the Rei ring; the ring's yellow gold accent is not gold plated, this is a solid sterling silver ring with 18k gold poured into the “crack”. These are just beautiful, are finished with such high detail, and are super comfortable. These rings go through countless hours of hand finishing and polishing to achieve the look and feel you'll see when you put this ring on. Pretty unreal attention to detail in both the shape and oxidation points of these rings. Shop Kei Shigenaga Online

    Samurai Makoto Selvedge Jeans and ZERO FABRIC Soybean Dyed T-Shirts This week we have two jeans from Samurai and their ZERO FABRIC t-shirts in a new black soybean dyed version. The new S140SXJ-GRK jean from Samurai is a limited edition model with some truly interesting accents, mostly hidden on the inside of the jean. Very special pocket bags, three different types of buttons, a tri-colored selvedge ID, all in their new relaxed tapered fit made of an unbelievably nice 18oz textured denim. We also have Samurai’s S211VX jean. These are made of Samurai's custom Benkei denim which consists of a special 6x5 twill weave developed exclusively for this model. This level of texture in denim is something Samurai has been doing before most Japanese brands and has been a hallmark of the brand since its inception in 1997. Samurai’s ZERO FABRIC t-shirts are now available in a kuromame dyed “black” color. This new run of tees has been given a long bath in a locally grown kuromame (black soybean) “soup” to achieve this dark charcoal color. 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 eleven 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. These are now available in very small numbers at our stores. Shop Samurai Online

These jackets have custom YKK gunmetal two-prong shanks, are fully black satin lined, and have an inner chest pocket. You can find these jackets now at all of our stores and online is very limited numbers. Shop 3sixteen Online

    New Jeans & Loopwheeled Hoodies from Iron Heart This week we have slubby denim, 25oz denim, and new loopwheeled hoodies from Iron Heart. Iron Heart’s first truly slubby denim has arrived. Their new in-house developed 16oz slub cotton denim is perfect for those who’ve wanted an Iron Heart jean with a denim that ages over time with an intense slub pattern. The denim clocks in at 16oz per square yard, has been lightly sanforized and lightly rinsed, and we’re proud to have it available in their classic 634 straight leg fit. Iron Heart comes through with the heaviest denim they produce in our most popular silhouette, the straight tapered 633. This 25oz denim feels amazing, especially considering the weight, and fades very nicely due to the pronounced creasing it holds over time. We also have very nice loopwheeled hoodies in a new burgundy color. These are built to last, are super warm and soft, and have a true loopwheeled fleece which has a nice “grain” to it from the loopwheeling processing. Shop Iron Heart Online

    Warehouse Winter Collection Warehouse’s “5-Hydroxy-Tryptamine” flannel is here. This shirt is part of Warehouse's winter flannel collection, which are their heaviest and softest flannels they produce. These are double brushed on the interior so they're soft on the inside and the weave pattern has a nice three dimensional depth; this is up there with the best flannels coming out of Japan. We also have Warehouse pile cotton winter socks. These socks are fully piled and have excellent cushioning and heat retention so that they can be worn with heavy-duty boots or sneakers. In order to prevent the scratching that tends to occur in thick socks, Warehouse uses a technique called "toe linking" so that the seams do not hit the wearer's toes. Warehouse loopwheeled sweaters are back and now available in oatmeal or salmon. These are some of the highest quality sweats we’ve seen coming out of Japan. You can find all these items now online and at all stores. Shop Warehouse Online

    Self Edge Graphic Series T-Shirt #16 & Studio D'Artisan's Indigo-Check Flannel This week we have a new Self Edge Graphic Series t-shirt and an indigo-dyed winter flannel from Studio D'Artisan. #16 in our Graphic Series is a collaboration with Brooklyn based artist Rachel Hayden. Rachel’s paintings speak to us; her use of inanimate object-characters are exactly what we need to fill our lives. She asked us to title the piece for her and we came up with Eight Locked Dimensions, a reference to the Ancient Greek language’s eight words for love. Philia, eros, pragma, storge, ludus, agape, mania, & philautia. Unlock them all. Along with the t-shirt we’ve done a small run of holographic die-cut stickers, each t-shirt comes with one of these stickers while supplies last. Studio D’Artisan’s new indigo-dyed check winter flannel is here. This new shirt is made of a pure indigo-dyed cotton yarn which gives the flannel a unique shade of blue which will change over time as the flannel becomes worn in and washed. You can now find both of these items online and at our five stores. Shop Self Edge Graphic T-Shirts Online Shop Studio D'Artisan Online

    The Fine Creek Leathers Anderson Shinki Horsehide Jacket We’ve got a hot one this week from Fine Creek. The Anderson jacket is here, available in black or brown Shinki horsehide. Fine Creek makes some of the most beautiful horsehide jackets we've seen. These are made using a vegetable tanned Japanese horsehide from Japan's famed Shinki Tannery, which ages in a fairly fast manner, and dyed using a "tea core" style method. The quality of stitching is as good as it gets for a leather jacket, and we've not seen many jackets age as well as these do. Depending on the panel they'll use a different type of stitch thread and thread count to achieve puckering in certain areas for added character. This new jacket is available now at all stores in two tea-core Shinki leather colors. Shop Fine Creek Online
