  1. Pure Blue Japan

    Pictured is a size 4 which measures just over 22 inches in the chest after a couple cold washes and about 18 inches in the shoulder. I also have the 3sixteen indigo pack of tees and I like the PBJ tees much better.

    Not nearly enough love for the PBJ indigo t shirts around here. Here’s a shot of one 3 years old vs brand new.
  3. Real Japan Blues - Jeans & Shirts...

    Went with tagged size 36, measuring about 37” raw. After shrinkage they shrunk down to about 35.75 and almost immediately stretched back to at least 36.5”. Definitely some of the stretchiest denim I’ve worn, I’d be willing to bet after a couple days wear will stretch back to 37”. I’m somewhere between a 36 and 37 normally so this is perfect for me. Hope that helps.

    Absolutely agree after about an hour I forgot I was wearing them. Took them for a spin in the washing machine and definitely glad I did, the waist and top block is much tighter now and once they stretch back out a bit should fit like a glove.

    Thanks man! I did one 30 minutes warm soak and lost about an inch and a half in both the inseam and the waist. After 2 days wear the waist is nearly back to raw. Was definitely hoping for a bit more in the inseam so I didn’t have to double cuff. Debating whether or not I should do a second soak at this point. If the inseam doesn’t shrink any more I will probably try and make the trip the Self Edge and hem once more so I can show off the sweet roping on these.

    Just copped a pair of the Rivet and Hide RFR-002 RJB collabs. Some of the nicest denim I’ve ever worn and a really comfortable fit, really solving some of the low rise issues I’ve had with other Japanese slim tapered fits. See below for first day fit pics, let me know what you think! Also pictured Self Edge x Florian Bertmer x Flat Head T-Shirt, Self Edge feather pendant and Flat Head sneakers. https://imgur.com/a/2krn9dM

    Anyone pick up the new indigo flannel from Self Edge? Interested in thoughts and impressions before I take the plunge.
  9. The Flat Head

    If anyone is dying for a pair, I just had Kiya special order me a pair of the white ones!
  10. The Flat Head

    Anyone know if any retailers will be receiving the Flat Head sneakers anytime soon? From images on their Instagram and website it appears the leather sneakers with the 3 diamonds are back! I have a pair of the canvas and they’re probably my favorite shoes I own.
  11. Loopwheeled/Vintage T-Shirts

    Are the new Flat Head “the other thc” t-shirts considered true loopwheeled? I have one of the new ones on the way from self edge as well as several other thc tees from various years and I’m curious how the fabric has changed over time. It seems at one point they were loopwheeled and then they were not and now they are again?
  12. The Flat Head

    Cold Summer, how does your size in the Flat Head sneakers compare to your Common Projects? I'm a 41 or 8 in the achilles sneaker and am considering picking up a pair of the canvas flat heads from the Self edge sale. My foot is also a little on the wide side. Is anyone still selling the leather version of those sneakers? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

  14. The Strike Gold

    Anyone noticing any evo on their wavy jeans yet? I have a pair myself but unfortunately I have a suit and tie job so I only get to wear on nights and weekends. I'm impatient and am dying to know what lies ahead.
