    Flat Head Flannels, Denim Shirts, and Cordovan Small Wallets This week we have two new shirts from Flat Head and a fresh run of all six styles of their Shinki shell cordovan small wallets. First up we have a Self Edge exclusive flannel! This fabric part of Flat Head’s heavy winter flannel series and is made of Flat Head’s heaviest selvedge flannel which have been double brushed on the interior for comfort and wind resistance. These shirts are finished with real mother-of-pearl inlayed buttons and double-needle and chainstitch construction. Next up we have an item they've been making with small tweaks every year for over twenty years, a snap buttoned selvedge denim shirt. These things are made of a pure-indigo dyed 10oz Japanese selvedge denim and finished with real mother-of-pearl snap buttons. We also have Flat Head's Shinki Tannery shell cordovan small wallets in three styles and two colors. All six wallets are hand-cut, hand-sewn, pigskin lined, and made in-house in Flat Head’s own leather craft workshop in Nagano, Japan. You can find all these items now at all stores and online.

  2. 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
  3. 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.

    Really Nice Loopwheeled T-Shirts from Merz B. Schwanen Over the past four years Merz B. Schwanen has slowly turned into many of our clients’ favorite basics brand. The combination of attention to detail, breadth of textile styles, and various colors and fibers has turned Merz into a basics powerhouse. Cotton garments are made of organic Greek cotton then loopwheeled on vintage knitting machines in Germany and finished with vintage-correct construction and trim. Everything from the knitting to the cutting and sewing is done in-house at Merz. The attention to detail in their tees, sweaters, and underwear is impressive and we're excited to be able to expand what we stock from them. We have fresh runs of their loopwheeled t-shirts and underwear along with two special releases. We now have their new Sea Island cotton t-shirts, these are so special they come with serial numbered hologram tags. We believe Merz B. Schwanen have made the world’s first Sea Island cotton loopwheeled t-shirt. If you’re a fiber geek or need to enter the final level of the nicest and softest blank t-shirt you’ve ever seen, this is for you. These t-shirts are wild soft and are available now in white or black. Lastly we have a fresh run of their mulesing-free fine merino wool loopwheeled tees, available in black or natural. All these items are available now across all of our stores. Shop Merz B. Schwanen Online

    Pure Blue Japan SR-019 Super Rough Jeans Pure Blue Japan's 18oz Super Rough denim is now available in their straight tapered fit. This is the most impressive fabric we've seen from PBJ in quite some time. This 18oz denim is woven at a very low tension with a super short staple cotton, giving the fabric extreme character. These feel and look amazing even when new and are sure to look insane with some wear. You can find these along with the slim tapered SR-013 version at all stores.

    New Spring Releases from Seuvas One of our favorite shirt brands has ventured into the world of flannels for the first time and it seems they can do no wrong. Seuvas come through with a shirt 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 external branding. It’s no surprise that Seuvas is capable of producing such nice flannels considering all textiles and even the sewing is done in-house in their own factory in Okayama, Japan. Last season one of the biggest hits at our stores was Seuvas’ first foray into a non-canvas garment with their indigo chambray. For their new summer collection they’ve taken that same chambray and done a double-indigo version with an indigo warp and indigo fill yarn. This creates a much deeper and darker indigo shade compared to a traditional chambray fabric. Both of these shirts along with a restock of a few of their greatest hits are available now at all stores. Shop Seuvas Online

    Poten Summer Collection of Japanese Baseball Caps Poten’s summer collection is here! This season we see Poten doing their caps in two new fabrics and a restock of their most popular cap. We have a new blue cotton and linen blend, a very nice washed out black linen, and a restock of their black nylon cap. These hats are crazy nice, nicer than any other straight ahead baseball cap we've ever seen. Every cap style has a super soft and supple inner leather headband which has been lightly treated so it’s not destroyed by sweat. The caps have zero exterior branding except for the stitches which you can see from the top of the crown from the interior branding tags being sewn into the center of the crown. The cap has a medium height crown and the brim has a medium length to it with 19 concentric stitches which feel and look pretty cool in person. If you're into baseball caps, you'll love what Poten is doing. All three of these caps are available now at all stores and online. Shop Poten Japanese Baseball Caps Online

    The Black 1947 Jean from Sugar Cane & Whitesville Blank Tees! For 74 years we’ve been waiting for a Japanese made black/black 1947 jean, and they’re finally here. Sugar Cane has taken 1947 jean, which we could say is the most solid classic straight leg jean fit of all time, and made it out of their 13oz yarn-dyed black selvedge denim. This fabric has a sulfur dyed warp and a reactive dyed weft, this gives you a deep black jean which will age over time with some decent character, similar to how an indigo jean will age with regular wear. These are now available up to size 40 at all stores and online. We've found that over the years one of our best selling blank t-shirts is Whitesville's Japanese made tees which come in 2-packs. We can rarely keep these in stock so we've had them do a production run for Self Edge so we can be fully stocked across all stores this spring. These are available again at all stores in black, gray, and white. Shop Sugar Cane & Whitesville Online

    Mister Freedom Snipes Shirt & Iron Heart Japanese Horsehide Type III Jacket We've got the new Mister Freedom Snipes shirt and Iron Heart horsehide Type III jackets this week! The Mister Freedom shirts are made of a Japanese mil-spec 100% cotton poplin and finished with corozzo wood buttons, an unstructured one-piece collar, chainstitch construction with narrow seams, and elbow reinforcement patches. Every detail is executed to the highest degree because that’s the only way Mister Freedom knows how to do anything. Iron Heart's horsehide Type III jackets are made from tea-core chrome-tanned horsehide in Himeji, Japan and are modified with a slightly longer body than the original Type III version. They come with the addition of two external hand-warmer pockets, two internal "gun" pockets, and an olive cotton twill lining. You can find both these items at all stores now.

    The micro-fleece shirts fit almost a full size larger than other IH flannels, but it's sort of supposed to be worn slightly oversized as opposed to the slim fit of their flannel shirts. If you want a slim fit as you normally would wear in their flannels I would go a size down.

    If you're referring to the new Flat Head shirts it's because there are three completely different models we just received. The flannel workshirt style in 3 colors, the vintage Pendleton style in one color, and the indigo dobby shirts in short sleeve and long sleeve versions. Each style is made with a completely different pattern.

    Flat Head Winter Flannels and Indigo Dobby Shirts! FLAT HEAD IS BACK!!!! Fuck we’re really excited about this one. After a year long hiatus while restructuring the company Nagano’s finest is back and we’re excited to have their flannels back in stock. They’ve made this new run of flannels exclusively for us without chin-straps because who really wants that stupid thing dangling off the end of a collar? We have two styles of flannels across four different colors in limited numbers as is the case with all Flat Head releases. We also have a fresh run of their indigo rope-dyed dobby shirts in both short and long sleeve versions which come with custom painted metal Flat Head buttons. All these items are available now at all stores and as usual with Flat Head, there will be no restocks. Shop Flat Head Online

    Sugar Cane Denim

    They're a unique store because it's a combination of a gray market dealer and a legit dealer (because they actually have some legit accounts with Oni, Momotari, etc..). I don't know of a single other store in the world where they're an authorized dealer of brands plus they're selling back-doored product alongside those other brands.

    Sugar Cane Denim

    It's all about volume, they move so many units that it doesn't matter if something comes back, they just add it back into their stock and hold onto it till somebody orders it again. The reason they have to buy back-doored product from other retail stores is because many Japanese brands refuse to do business with them.
