  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.

    We have a new line we're launching at all 5 stores on March 14th where all the frames are wider than anything else we've carried and the attention to detail on the frames is crazy impressive... Think Fellini films and Enzo Ferrari...
  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

    We've been heavily carrying this brand for over two years now, along with quite a few other things which match this aesthetic. Sometimes it's difficult to fully express what a store's aesthetic is via the internet, hence why maybe a brand like Masahiro makes more sense if you're a local customer seeing everything we carry in person, all at the same time, inside the same store.

    Masahiro Maruyama Spring 2020 Collection This week we have four new eyewear releases from Masahiro Maruyama. With this new collection he plays with layering different shapes made of titanium under acetate to bring a new level of depth to his eyewear. All four are made of Japanese acetate and titanium and come with tinted Carl Zeiss lenses, with each frame's lens color matching the frame to the designer's specifications. As always, these lenses can be swapped out for prescription lenses by any optician. All four of these frames are quite unique and the attention to detail in both design and material finish is top notch, truly he's pushing the boundaries of eyewear design and manufacturing. Along with these four new models we've received new runs of three of his best sellers which we sold out of during the first production run. You can find the new collection and restocks at all 5 of our stores now. Shop Masahiro Maruyama Online

    Iron Heart 633 in 14oz Black/Black Denim & New Horsehide Jackets This week have the very popular 633 fit from Iron Heart in a newly developed 14oz denim with a black warp and black weft. The denim on this is one of the best black/black denim styles we've seen from any brand, it has a perfect hand feel and great character for a black/black denim. We've also received Iron Heart's newest horsehide jacket. This model has been modified exclusively for our stores as we've had Iron Heart remove the side/rear zippered gussets for a cleaner look. Both of these items are available now across all stores and online. Shop Iron Heart Online

    Pure Blue Japan Snow Denim Jeans & 12oz Lightweight Jeans Here we have one of the wildest denim styles to come from Pure Blue Japan. Their new "snow" denim is produced with a short staple cotton that gives the denim a very unique look and feel. These are sure to be some of the most interesting jeans once the denim starts to fade and age with regular wear. Along with the new Snow Denim jeans we've received fresh runs of their 12oz summer weight jeans in both indigo and black/black. Shop Pure Blue Japan Online

    3sixteen x Schott Horween Chromexcel Tea-Core Dyed Horsehide Jackets We're happy to announce that Self Edge is one of the lucky retailers to have been granted access to the new 3sixteen x Schott Horween Chromexcel tea-core dyed horsehide jacket collection. For the first time they've done two versions, a Perfecto style double rider's jacket and a A-2 reproduction with some twists. 3sixteen did a smart thing with the A-2 and designed these so there are side entry hand pockets hidden behind the traditional A-2 pockets. Both jackets are made of a custom Horween leather designed by 3sixteen, have lightly contrasting nickel hardware with stirrup shaped zipper pulls, and are lined with a Japanese printed cotton twill. These are fairly limited and will not be restocked. Get em this Friday at noon (local time) at all of our stores or at 9am (PST) online. Shop 3sixteen x Schott Online

  17. Trust me, many people still freeze their jeans, we encounter it all the time at our stores and even via our customer service email with people asking how long they should freeze the jeans for, if they should put them in a ziplock back, etc.. So yes, it still is happening, all around the world. This article wasn't written for anyone reading this right now, it's written for those who have never been on a forum and maybe never even been into a speciality store selling raw denim. Also it seems as if you think we (Jeremy, Merz, & myself) asked them to write this article.. they come to us with questions and we answer them because that's what you do when the press asks questions and you own a retail store. I agree that there are hundreds of similar articles out there saying the same exact things.

    1/8 Takamura Chamarra Trapecio Jackets 1/8 Takamura have produced a new bronze version of their popular Chamarra Trapecio jackets. These still have the perfect fit which our clients loved last year and they're finally available in bronze. We've also received a small restock of the black version of this jacket. 1/8 Takamura is a brand which we've been carrying at Self Edge Mexico for over four years now. The brand is owned by a young Mexican designer from Mexico City by the name of Guillermo Vargas. His great grandfather was Japanese, hence the name of his line. Most of his collections over the past few years have been for women yet recently he's starting to do more garments for men. We hadn't planned on bringing the collection into our four stores north of the Mexican border, but this jacket was too good to pass up. The fabric is woven at a small mill outside Mexico City and it's all cut and sewn in-house at the 1/8 Takamura studio in Roma Norte, Mexico City. It's a fresh design and from the initial reactions we've gotten from our staff and clients at our stores it seems the jacket is a hit. Helps to see these jackets in person as some of the details/lines are lost in photographs. These are available now at all five of our stores in four colors, bronze being this season's new color.

  22. FYI.. this policy has been in place for nearly every luxury brand in the world since the late 90's. With the way streetwear and luxury/couture have intersected over each other this past year Nike can now be considering a (new) luxury brand, so this sales policy isn't much of a surprise.

    Fine Creek Leathers Leon Custom Jackets & Stevenson's Recon Fatigue Pants We have fresh runs of two very popular items from Fine Creek Leathers and Stevenson Overall Co. We've just received a restock of Fine Creek's Leon Custom black horsehide jacket. These are available in small numbers and are only made once or twice a year, so unfortunately restocks don't come often. We also have a special version made of dark brown horsehide, these are limited to ten jackets and are available at Self Edge New York or via email. Check the product page on our site for all specs and info on the Leon. We also have the Recon pant from Stevenson in their newer olive slub cotton fabric. Stevenson Overall have outdone themselves with their take on a fatigue pant. They've started by developing a custom 100% cotton slub fabric which has the perfect shade of olive and a great hand feel. Then they've taken the pattern of the traditional fatigue pant and reworked it from the ground up with side pockets which actually turn into the seat of the pant, an articulated knee, hidden buttons on the pockets, and an elastic drawstring at the hem. These are perfect. Shop Fine Creek Leather Online Shop Stevenson Overall Online
